Good morning. It's a bright and sunny day. -20 degrees, I really want to complain. Who do you complain to if you really believe the Lord is in control? He knows whats best. I'm ready for some warm weather, though. This gets discouraging. Even for a Minnesotan. This month, I think we've had more below zero weather than any other month this winter. I want spring!!! Okay I'm done.
The electric fence is down and I get to walk it to find out where before our wandering steer gets to wandering again. One of our donkeys is having a hard time with her front foot-ice build up- so next I need to get a saw and a hoof pick and try and help her out. Clean the cow stall, clip the ice off of one of the goat's beards. Thaw out water buckets and get water to everyone. If I get the fence working, I'll put out the little steer. I don't think it's good for him to be in the barn all of the time.
I should grind some flour and get some bread and caramel rolls started. Get the kids going on their schoolwork, once they come in from chores. Paint some more in the bathroom. I'd really like to get it done. Primer white isn't my favorite color. Honey wants me to help organize his shop. Maybe a couple of things a day, until it warms up. I have taxes to work on. Not in any hurry for those.
I am complaining. I'm sorry. I'm just feeling a bit overwhelmed today. Thank you for letting me get it out there. I know that this does not bring glory to God. Maybe now I can start looking at my blessings. My wonderful husband, who let me nap yesterday when I should have been getting supper ready. Bless him. The wonderful sun, which, even though the thermometer reads CCCOLD, actually has some warmth to it. Gardening dreams and the ability to put one of my seed orders in today. The excitement of the farmer's market to come....
Yes, life is good.
