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.
