A warm day

After over a week of highs that were less than freezing, we got 2 nice days last week. Logan and I decided to spend some much needed time with the goats.




I got a couple more videos that I'll try to post over the next few days. Sorry for the big gap in posting. I find it very hard to function when it is so cold. Even the normal chores are hard, and I had to bring warm water out to the animals 3 times a day. I've been feeling overwhelmed with having to do everything inside and out with very little help. Somehow, it all seems easier when it is warm. I'm so glad we moved south.

Let me know if you need help out there and that includes if you wanna go outta town.. I don't know much but I really enjoyed last week and am willing to help.

The weather made all of us feel good.
Maybe pare down your operations a little, to give yourself a break. You cannot do it all!

Orion is so sweet!

I think we naturally have the urge to hybernate when it's cold, glad you had a nice day outside to lift your spirits. Love the happy goat and happy boy video.

I'm with you..I'm dysfunctional in the cold weather. But, keep it up, it shows what an amazing woman you are.

Hello, Orion was just as happy as you all were to have such a nice warm day and to play with you all. Thanks for sharing the video. It is very normal to feel the way you do when it is freezing outside. Many of us feel the same way. Sunshine is important. I take Vitamin D supplement during the winter and it helps.

As you well know I hate the cold and all I want to do is hibernate. It is just too hard to function in cold weather. So don't feel bad you are not alone. Glad the weather has warmed up a little for you. Cute video!!!

Orion is so wonderful! Love the blue eyes.
He sure was glad to see you.
No mind about not blogging. The cold weather does that to me, too. :)

And outside up here there's a raging snowstorm :). I'll bet you're really glad you didn't move to New England ;).

Love the goat pics. Orion looks like he's got such a good personality.

Cute video! Playing with the goats is my favorite thing to do! I'm glad it had warmed up here (southern MO) too! Just in time for kidding season. I sure was not looking forward to kidding watch out in the icy cold barn. I hope the warmer weather holds!

I am glad the cold has left too. I can't remember such a long cold spell down this way.
But on the other hand today temp. is suppose to 66! and 67 tomorrow! I have been out working in the raised beds and it was wonderful to get in some dirt that wasn't frozen.

Loved the video. The goats(and Logan) are looking good.

Have a great day.

Jennifer, thank you. It is mostly just the day to day that is getting to me. It is hard to juggle everything when it is dark and cold out!

Barbara, I take vitamin D in the winter, it helps a lot! It was just so cold here.

Wendy, I literally would kill myself if I lived in New England!

Orion is the sweetest boy ever! I adore that goat. Spending time with him is my therapy. And I'm going out right now to spend time with him LOL. It is warm again!!!!

I enjoyed the video.Nice "kids". I was in the harness horse business most of my life in NY,NH,VT,MA..all cold country...I remember 5 gallon water pails frozen solid and needing changing several times aday..it's all worth it...as you know. If you love your animals they come first as your children do. I am enjoying your blog.

I like how you say 'goaties' and 'sheepies'. That what I call mine, too. hehe!
