The Weekend

A challenging weekend...
-- battled wind (20 to 30 mph) and snow (honestly have lost track of how many inches) to feed and tend the flock
-- windchills of -12 to -17 degrees turned water to slush in a matter of minutes; fumbled around to get insulated sleeves on the rabbits' waterers but then the little ball bearings in the tubes froze
-- blowing snow closed the church road several times, but the Ranger once again proved to be a determined drift buster, and we were able to make it over to the other pasture with hay for Saul's breeding group
-- celebrated every single time the sun weakly peeked through the snow-laden clouds
-- managed to trudge back to the fiber room and get a couple more lambs' fleeces skirted and finished another piece of contract knitting {happy dance}
and last but most definitely not least...
-- discovered that in an emergency, pink insulated underwear makes an excellent winter face mask!


  1. No pictures of the stylish pink face mask?

  2. honestly, grateful that the bad weather prevented the neighbors from driving by to witness that discovery
