We've had a brief respite from the rain. Clouds are moving back in, and the wet stuff will return tomorrow afternoon. But, we had a wonderful weekend of sunshine. All of the animals were doing this:
Brett and I did the morning chores in our heavy coats and warm hats, ate our breakfast, and then headed back outside. By 10 am we didn't need jackets or hats anymore. I worked in the garden and groomed the horses in a sweatshirt. Brett finished up the chicken run reinforcement.
I think we hit 53F.
Brett's next project is rebuilding the bridge that crosses our largest stream, giving us access to the girls' pasture and the compost piles. Brett needs to be able to get his tractor and truck over there to work on cutting up the tree that fell into the girls' pasture. So, the bridge has become priority one. Yesterday, he was busy buying supplies. He was telling me about his bridge plans last night -- as is typical, the bridge will be strong, sturdy and plenty large. I'm thinking a semi will be able to rumble across when he's done.
