Sadly, Mother Nature is not co operating with Jaden's visit and, whilst I hesitate to grumble about the weather ( having watched the wind rain and snow creating personal and economic havoc on the East Coast and in England). A series of heavy rain storms are lining up in the Pacific and MJ ( Fox 13 meteorologist) watching a kaleidoscope double Doppler weather map is enthusiastically advising us all to stay warm, dry and....indoors on this Presidents day holiday ! ( not much hope of that around here !) Jaden is anxiously watching the weather, his concerns aren't for his warmth or for his comfort, Jaden wants to ride, just ONE ride...... just a short one before he has to return to the city.
Along with our concerns about the inclement and inconvenient weather, we are anxiously watching little bodies growing and udders beginning to swell in both the sheep pen and the cow barn. This year's crop of lambs are imminent and Misty's nine month pregnancy is over in less than five weeks. Sadly for Rodney the ram, lambing signals his return to celibacy and his "man cave" was being prepared yesterday by Greg and his uncomplaining right hand man, Jaden. Thanks Jaden
We were very happy to welcome Grace back to the "girl team" yesterday. Grace arrived in the rain and will be with us for two weeks before returning to school. It is going to be a really busy two weeks and we know she will enjoy the experience....if not the weather.
Got to go, take care, keep safe and dry ( Huh ???) M
