Hot coffee!! Second cup....🥱 Rained last night. Was soft rain at 10:00 barn check. After? Ten hr work day and I was heading to bed! Later than norm for chores but, that's life. Coolish low 40s with the wetness.....goats aren't milling around either.😁

Gotta get out there. Back in to pack a lunch & head to work. Another long day...get jobs done and I can have stay home again.👍. Sun is showing around disappearing clouds. Good...warming up to 60, maybe.

It’s daylight, I eased out back so I could get a good look at Cooper’s pen. Only one Quonset hut in that pen, all 9 sheep are crowded in it. Buford is curled up under the platform of the Dog Tower. I guess today I need to work on tearing down the pallet shelter in the front yard and rebuild it in Coopers pen.

Coffee is ready! Breakfast will be Boudain sausage. Son stopped at Woody’s in Madisonville on I-45, a place renowned for jerky, BBQ and more jerky. If y’all ever go that way, stop and go in. Son has his RV parked at his house, still has to fix broken water pipe, so he came here last night.

It drizzled all morning yesterday so I put together the shelf tower in the girls closet. Then Peggy and I clipped 3 bags of T-post clips. We got the bottom wires finished and started on the top.
Today? Don’t know.

Woody's! YUM! That was a 'have to" stop on every trip to/through Dallas from here. Turkey jerkey, jalapeno bread and a hunk of cheese. Road food!

If you ever on 71 between I-10 and La Grange - gotta make a stop at Hruskas. Kolaches galore!

Makes me want to eat!! That's a loooong road trip from here. 😶 It sounds so good.

65 inside and 47 out. Neither good but, outside needs a jacket. They say only low 50s today. Did someone flip their weather calendar backwards??? It's almost April. This is 15-20 degrees below aver norm here🤔 But sunny!!!!!

Looks like job work today....then I can have a week at home -- which I greatly need!!! A "mental health" week. :lol: :old several days to not even consider a job.👍

So coffee, feed, milk, bottle feed twins, check for anything needed while on the road -- tractor diesel? -- and go, coffee mug in hand. 😁

yes! 17°F this morning, might get to freezing. 20°F overnight tonight, barely above freezing tomorrow. Mid 50s Saturday then down below 20°F overnight and not above freezing Sunday. It is NOT spring yet here!

Another rainy day - got the dogs out and sheep fed before it started. We've had hail at least three times today (pretty rare to get any). Lots of wind too, and severe T-storm warnings out the wazoo. It seems Mother Nature is giving the weatherman a run for his money - or rather his own personal hay-day.
It's been weeks since I've had the sheep out to graze, and it's looking like I'll be lucky to snag any graze mornings in at this rate as the hills on the ranch are turning to yellow - the go to brown yellow, not the flower yellow. Such is life.
With all the rain days and too wet to do anything days I feel like a lump on a log doing basically nothing. When all this finally stops I hope I can get back into the swing of things rather than sit around sipping tea, drinking coffee, and reading.
Saturday and Sunday are supposed to be sunny high of 65 - and then .......... forecast rain on Monday.
Update - and yet another bout of hail as I typed this.
