Oh golly gosh, it is SOOOO nice outside today - unbelievable|!
The sun is shining strong in the mostly-cloudless sky and it's warm enough to sit on the front stairs with only a warm sweater and house shoes - no hat, scarf, gloves, coat, anything. The birds are singing and you can hear the trickle of melting snow all around.
Tomorrow we're getting rain all day and then back to cold and snow for the weekend, but today is bliss and I'm enjoying it the best I can.
OK fine, heaping wheelbarrow after heavy wheelbarrow of soiled chicken bedding onto the giant pile of manure isn't exactly relaxing but it badly needed to get done, and what better time eh? Today the barn doors are open to let in lots of fresh air (better for my lungs, ooooh the dirty, dirty dust flying up everywhere...) - yep, happy critters all around.
I ache like a motherflipper though.
And I'm only half done.
Ow. Ow. Ow.
Time for a quick lunch, then I promised the doggies I'd take them for a nice walk around the town's park for a sniff-o-thon potty break. I'll finish cleaning out the chicken stalls later, I can hardly move my shoulders as it is.
I LOVE THIS WEATHER!! :-D
