It was 10 degrees when I got up this morning. A little girl and her dad came to watch me milk the goats. Of all days to choose. Poor little girl had to take her gloves off when I asked her if she wanted to help milk. I think she liked it though. I hope her dad got a good picture. After they left and I finished my morning chores (which I don't really think of as chores. I just don't know what else to call them) I sat around doing very little. I checked all my usual websites, emails and read bits and pieces of some farming books I got from the library. I watched some videos on how to build a desk. The speaker was very dry but still I learned something. I was feeling kind of bored. I don't usually get bored. I hate even to use that word. This cold and snow is keeping me indoors more and I hate it. When James got home we went for a walk. The sun was out and it felt so much warmer. I felt better too so I put the metal roof on the chicken coop I recently acquired and took the goats for a walk around their pasture.
Yes, I'm thankful for free time and to be able to rest when I want but too much rest can make a body lazy and cranky.
