That's what I think of April so far: PFFFFT!

It's made no effort whatsoever to be nice - my gosh it's MAY in a week and the trees are still brown and bare, shivering in the freezing rain and trying not to break in the hurricane-ish wind...

Gardens are bare and devoid of flowers, grass tries to grow here and there but ends up buried under snow every few days... It's rained so much the half-frozen earth can't absorb any more water, hence the bogs and giant puddles everywhere...

Worst. April. Evar.

*le sigh*

I hate to sound like a broken record but I'm just sayin' it like it is. Found another very sick hen in the coop this morning, no doubt related to the fluctuating weather and cold winds and humidity - I'm so tired of this, you've no idea. SIX MONTHS is enough!

I've got cabin fever today - Vegas is leaving for a business trip tomorrow afternoon so there's no sense in baking or anything. Can't do laundry until the dryer has been serviced on Monday or else everything will stink of burnt crap again. I hoovered two days ago, the dogs are sleeping and I'm in no mood to start any big project like painting walls or cleaning out closets, bleh.

So Scrabble vs The Robot it is, watching HGTV, puttering online and spending time with my flocks, doing my best to make do with what we've got. We may go out for dinner tonight although I don't feel like it right now. Just want to sink into a hot bubble bath, put on my jammies and go to bed until tomorrow, when it's *supposed* to be a bit warmer and, hopefully, sunny.

But no, I have to go walk the dogs later, bring in the horses and feed everyone so scrap that thought!

Are you tired of my ranting yet? LOL

You have a huge job with all your babies. It's okay to rant! Hope you can get that bath in somewhere.

I hope your weather will change for the better soon. I would be ranting and griping too, if it were cold, wet and miserable here for 6 month.

You have built up quite the empire there...and you have to tend to it. :0
I sure wish I could send you some of our warmth and sunshine. (a/c runs 24/7)
Did you start looking for property down south yet???
