Today was everything i'd been praying for....musta been close to 60 degrees and not a drop of wind...yesssss.I even let the woodstove go out for the day after the morning chill wore off. How great it was to be outside for hours, sporting my straw hat and sock free sandled feet even!...mending fencing, clearing the irrigation ditches...and mucking...lots of mucking....not just the barns but the whole main holding pen is deep with waste hay and if i don't get to it then the warmth of spring brings this horrible sort of rotting fish smell...which i suspect is some tasty anaerobic composting action benath the top layers.
I tried not to over do it...but i'm guessin' i'll be sore tomorrow.
This evening an owl was hoo-hooing across the road....if i could post that sacred sound to this blog i would.
