Today was work. We ran out of wood on the porch so I had to shovel off the avalanche on the front steps to be able to get the wood up. Then I had to get the sled down from the rafter in the garage (tell me what is the sled doing up in the rafters). Actually, I think it was John's way of telling the snow to go away. Before all of this, I tromped through deep snow to check the propane level and then called to get them to bring us more. They actually came out a few hours later. Must have been someone out our way that was in real need. So I talked to the Propane guy about keeping animals fed (he has 70 head of cattle and some will be calving in a few days.)
A friend of ours says, "it take a half day to do anything". Today I really felt this. Lots of trudging through snow lugging water, feeding hay, and more I have forgotten.
But that is just today-- tomorrow Ben, who turned 4 today, is coming over. He can help me feed the flock and maybe we will go sledding. It is suppose to snow tomorrow but just 3"-6" or maybe 10". Really - I am not kidding.
Beau and the girls were silly in the snow yesterday. Chasing each other and doing their bounce thing where they spring off of all 4 feet at the same time. Also doing their play head butting. I guess they felt they had to do something to break the boredom. I built them the snow sheep but couldn't get inspired to make a snow llama. Maybe Ben will help me tomorrow. I wanted to get the other sheep in the picture too but they have not yet noticed the new sheep or at least not to my knowledge. Maybe tomorrow.
