I have lost my sense of humor

It is probably in the front yard, under the six inches of snow we got yesterday.  I must have dropped it on my way in from the car.  Well, I guess I will find it in April, if this stuff ever melts.

I am so bummed.  I had the hay perfectly planned.  The timing is excellent.  We are going to run out of round bales on March 15th, which is usually when the grass is coming up and the horses turn their noses up at my pathetic offering of yet more hay.  What I didn’t plan on was yet another snow storm and single digit temperatures.  So much for plans, right?   It’s quite possible I will have to come up with another 15 round bales, if there are any left to sell.  The emergency back up idea is that I do have enough square bales to buy myself a week, but then I am totally out of everything, and new hay doesn’t come in until May or June.   Hmmm…….

The one happy bit of news is that daylight savings is just around the corner!  Sunday!  I’m pretty psyched about that.

And, our Mardi Gras party was a lot of fun.  I don’t know the final numbers, so can’t tell you if we made tons of money to feed all the horses next winter (sure hope so), but we certainly made something.  And, everyone seemed to have a really good time.  The band (Federicksburg Big Band) was totally awesome.  Lots of dancers, even me, and I dance just like the middle-aged white chick that I am.  Ain’t pretty, but I can make you laugh.  Although I am not certain everyone was laughing with me…  More like at.

So that’s the news.  We are getting new horses next month, so hopefully I will have better stories to tell.   Fun ones, that do not involve frozen pipes.

    Its raining here and cold for us — making it dreary and puts one in an off mood. Even though we have daffodils coming up and the voilas have survived our intermittent frosts, it’s still deadly blue out. We’re in the same way with hay.
