Today will be another late night for us around here. I work until 9 and Joe will probably be working really long hours too. I think late nights are our new normal for now. At least it will be light out later so we can still go outside and do stuff instead of it being night at 5pm. It is a bit chilly outside this morning, in the 40’s, but the sun is coming up good now (it is so bright coming across my desk that I can hardly see… I might have to put up some curtains!) and it will probably warm up quick. I just finished up with all the animals and breakfast etc. and I’m going to finish this, go for my run and then head to work myself! Joe has been at work for hours already 🙂
Our little stream is running fast. I tried to climb into the snow to take a good picture but I got snow in my shoes and got all mad so I took this one as far as I could reach. You can only see a tiny bit of it, that black smudge near the bottom of the photo. When it melts a bit better I will go back again and get a better one… in the spring the stream is a few feet wide and a few inches deep… mostly just runoff down our ravine but it kind of counts as a stream…there are no fish or anything like that though and it dries up after the spring. We wish it was a real stream for sure! The dogs like to wade in it when we go back there though so it is still fun while it lasts.
The chickens have been enjoying some nicer weather outside too although their whole coop is pretty yucky right now. On the way left you can see I’ve got two bags of bedding and either today or tomorrow I’ll be getting like 6 more so that on Sunday I can go out there and clear everything out and wipe stuff down etc. I’m so excited of course…like 2-3 hours of hauling muck but it will be so worth it once they are all cleaned out and happy!
