Cold and Very Late

And I guess that I should add that I don't even care! The temp this morning is 18 degrees and feels like 10. Somehow, I did not get my work clothes swapped over from the washing machine to the dryer last night so I don't have anything to wear this morning. While I was waiting for the dryer, I cooked breakfast, chatted with a friend on facebook and let the boys sleep late.

Yes--- we are very late doing the barn chores. They will all be just fine..... I hope. Yesterday, I was sick. I got everything done in the morning and posted on this blog. Then, I fell apart. This cold hit me like a ton of bricks and I was down for the rest of the day and night. The rest of the clan has been suffering with it for almost three weeks, just passing it around. I decided that I was not going to push myself so that it lingered for DAYS. So, I took massive doses of Vitamin C, some cold medicine, turned up the heat and went to bed. I do not know what happened in this house or on this farm while I was out but they all seem to be alive and kicking today.
The good news is that I feel much better and only have a slight cold now.

The boys are up and fed and all of us are looking out at the frozen pond and dreading heading out--- but we must! The cows still need milking and everybody else needs feed, hay and water.

So.... I guess that I can't put it off any longer......<sigh>

  1. I know how you feel! Today was our first cold day, had 1" thick ice in the water buckets and I put off doing morning chores for as long as I could.

    Good idea to hunker down/medicate/sleep when you KNOW you need it, otherwise the sickness just lingers. Hope you & your clan are feeling better :)
