Rant

I'm too mad and upset to post properly these days.

Some evil "spring cold" is decimating my flocks and I am counting down the hours until the meds to cure them arrive, in the meantime I watch helplessly and am livid about it. I am losing birds every day now with more and more in quarantine, I'm at my wit's end.

Sunny today but very cold, the next few days are forecasted as winter-like: gray, cold, hail, freezing rain, snowflakes, high winds - look! Snowfall warning in effect!


I WANT TO SCREAM!!

Yesterday I ripped a muscle in my lower back trying to help a guy get his van and trailer out of our muddy, slippery ramp next to the barn, it took an hour and half and was completely exhausting and frustrating. All this to try and get the big manure pile down to a workable level - it's taking forever.

We still have no flowers, barely any buds and no leaves on the trees, the lawn is a brown bog and oh, how I dislike this time of year. Painful in too many ways to count.

Housework and baking awaits me as I scoot from the barn to the house in endless trips, hobbling along like an old cripple. Fuck I'm in a bad mood today.
