We interrupt this spring.......
to bring you more of winter.
Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. It has been ridiculously cold here with snow flurries just about every day. It has put me in a gloomy mood. And the riotous change from upper 70s to below freezing apparently jostled my immune system so I have been battling an annoying cold for the last week. Or I have developed allergies for the first time due to the obscene amount of tree pollen floating about. Hard to tell. I just know I'm miserable. THe photo is actually from winter, not recent. But I thought the gloom factor was appropriate to illustrate my current demeanor.
It has been painful to be outside with the biting wind and frigid temperatures, so nothing is getting done in the yard. Daffodils are still blooming but I feel like I missed a big chunk of spring already. It just isn't the same when viewed from inside through a window. The chickens are cranky, the dogs are listless and confused, and I just want to hole up with a fire in the woodstove, some movies, and emerge when it is 70 degrees again. This isn't fun.
