Global warming, you say?
Indeed!!! After years of frigid December weather, this Christmas Eve, we are enjoying a temperate, almost balmy day, weather wise... eureka!
But we're getting a little ahead of ourselves... winding the clock back to last February, we had a busy time...
Despite a bum hip, and a steroid shot fix to Ron's keester, we have a new laminate flooring in the studio. Alex arrived in time to give us a hand installing it and with the cussing held to a minimum... it looks pretty good!
We lost another large oak due to a wind storm... straight across the road near the house. We lost power for a while, but no serious damage... unless you were the tree! Ron has been considering having some timbering done to thin out some of the older trees on the place... we thinks it is time!
Ron also did a pirouette off a step ladder while making some repairs to the stock barn roof... nothing broken, but another big bruise on his already aching keester... getting too damn old for this stuff!
Sadly, we lost Mac and Wil this year... they were the last of the Mohicans: the last of our bred working Border Collies. We will miss them, particularly Ron. They were his boys.
With the ebb and flow of life here on the farm, we mourned our loss, but celebrated life anew...
Our daughter Eva and granddaughter Gina arrived for a visit just in time to see the first lambs of the season being born. Telle est la vie: such is life...
