And it was today!
It snowed, and it blowed, and it snowed some more. It's going to snow until Thursday but we got walloped today, holy cow. Freezing winds driving tiny icy flakes in your delicate eyeballs and ripping the wet snot off your face, yay winter!
Meanwhile, later that day, I get to do this
around the barn n'junk:
Bah, the dogs are loving it, the chooks are all safe in the barn (I'll post an update in the Chicken Diaries tomorrow, with lots of pics) and the horses stayed inside today, such good boys - it's a lot of poop to muck but man, the wind was brutal today. Can't subject the old geezers to that. Brrr!
I got the vet bill for Jack's choke emergency last week. $498. And then another $155 for his teeth float. Did I mention that I am a stay at home farmer wife with no income?
Yeah. We need a new vet, this one's ridiculously overpriced.

- peanut butter toast (topped with chocolate spread)
- müesli (with dark chocolate bits)
- hot milk in a cup
- pretzels (dipped in chocolate)
We had a bag of "too tough to eat" oranges sitting on the counter for three weeks or so, getting all dusty and crap - you know how I hate throwing food away, eh? So I thought to wash them, cut them up in little bits and boil them in a pot with
I swear I'll eat it before it turns green.
Good god, will it ever stop snowing? I can't even see the barn. Snow is piled high up against our doors, how are you supposed to open them without making a mess?
I should call the Snow Removal Angel to the rescue:
I really don't know.
I'll see if I can get some christmas lights up around our front porch this week, I don't see any hooks anywhere and don't want to drill any holes so who knows what we'll end up with. Maybe just lights in the windows. Easier. We'll see.
Don't even ask about the christmas tree!
