Will the Sun Ever Shine Again?

It's warm but so, so bleak looking out. I've had my fill of winter. It is getting hard to stay motivated and get anything done.

There's not too much new going on around here. Asher is settling in well. He's such a good little pup so far! Trixie is getting very wide. I only have 2 more weeks I can milk her before I need to dry her off. Kids in March, yay!

Kat finally decided to sample the annual rye grass I planted for them. Up til now, only have chickens have enjoyed it. Sure is a pretty color though. Maybe I just need to sit out there and stare at the spring green. 

We cracked a couple of Chase's duck eggs. I was amazed at how clear the whites are. Unlike chicken eggs, they are completely transparent.

I am hoping Cole's silkie roosters get here today. I first inquired about them on December 17. This is taking entirely too long especially considering that all 3 of his hens are broody now. I think I'll give them a few Marans eggs.

How do y'all stay upbeat and motivated in the winter? I need tips.

  1. I am feeling the same way. It's so dark and wet here. And way too warm. Last night the wind was blowing something awful and all I could think of was tornadoes. It's been almost 2 years since those horrible tornadoes that went through here and we don't want to see any more of those. Right now I have the windows open.

    I will be walking out back with my 2 dogs just to get outside. To clear my head and just enjoy being outside on some green grass, not squishy wet mud. That helps me.
