It is really rather awful outside.
Snowing. Cold. Blowing.
I am grateful I could do chores at the pace needed … and could wait until daylight. I didn’t have to (try to) rush through them in the dark, on a mission impossible, before leaving for the office.
I am grateful for the snow-boots I purchased on clearance at Farm & Fleet. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to me.
There were drifts up to my knees. Deceptive drifts. They didn’t look that deep.
I am grateful that the goats can make me laugh … even with the cold wind and snow blowing in my face.
I am grateful for coffee.
And hot chocolate.
And running to the bathroom frequently due to above…
And that my septic system was re-done in 2013.
I am glad for a clean slate. An almost-blank calendar that can be filled in with important items and hopefully not so many “urgent” ones.
I am grateful that I am home to rummage through the freezer to make lunch for the boys, home from college.
And grateful I found a roll of Rhodes frozen bread dough!
I am grateful I can put off grocery shopping to another day.
So very much to be grateful about. I loved the pictures, especially of the goats. They always make me smile and think of the Taylor Swift song where they inserted screaming goats —-always makes me laugh! ( http://youtu.be/NFgx5MY72Dk )
Happy Snow Day!
LOL! I had not seen that clip before!! Thank you so much for sharing.
You will never hear this song again and not think of the screaming goats. 🙂
Great post! Have a great 2014!
Thank you and best wishes for your new year, too!
One of my goals is NOT to go to Wal-Mart so often…once a month would be nice!
Happy New Year, Marla!
Like you, I find things to be grateful about everyday and I thank God for all that I have. Like dayphoto, I have been cutting down on my Wal-Mart trips. Mostly because I don’t think they deserve my business.
I agree! The less I am in there, the better.
What kind of pigs do you have Marla? c
Berkshires. They are excellent for their meat quality. We will know soon if our Bernice is bred.
Nice looking pigs too..
I love the Lang calendars–and so many to choose from. Nothing like a brand new blank one. Hope you get a reprieve from the wintry weather soon.
I love the Lang calendars, too! We are in a thaw now.
