The sun may be shining, but man is it cold! I keep telling myself to be thankful that I am physically capable of taking care of myself and my horses in this cold - without the proper - or best - set up and facilities.
Not much snow - the horses are huddled behind the shed trying to get out of the wind. They were shivering this morning after drinking their water. More hay is the answer. Glad I managed to roll out a bale last night so they have plenty! Man do I wish I had been able to get my auto water put in...
I'm ferret sitting today. Fred has grown since I saw him last - he is a character! My dog and cats are terrified of him. He is intent on biting them if they get close. Goofy thing.
At some point today, I think I'll get started on my next scarf. This one should be fun! The offwhite yarn is rabbit angora and the pink is mohair - both with a small percentage of wool and nylon. Should be a soft cuddly one.
I've also got on my list possible projects like painting, paying bills, doing financial statements for end of year for the 4-H leaders, and other assorted organizing issues. I'm alone today except for the ferret, the cats, and Cooper!
He's got his sunny spot picked out and is chillin' with two of the cats. I am happy to be home today - and not have to go somewhere unless I want to!
It's been a tough year to focus on the things I should be thankful for - they've been in the background pretty much. But I am still trying!
Today I've forced myself to acknowledge those things that are good - my kids, my animals, my fun co-workers, the people I've met through my weaving and crafting, and much more.
