I feel like...yuck.

The weather here has been fantastic. Temps up into the 50’s! Which is un heard of in North Dakota. We have no snow and it is January. Last year at this time, I was in Las Vegas with the hubby for our honeymoon, and temps were similar, but when we returned there was snow drifts that reached up to our garage roof. I am NOT missing the snow or cold weather. But by the sounds of it this nice weather is coming to an end. Boooooo! Thursday’s high is supposed to be 7…SEVEN! Today’s high is predicted to be 51.

With all this fabulous weather you’d think I’d be out riding my horse every day, but that hasn’t happened. Even thought the days are Sllllooooowwwwllllyyyy getting longer it is still real dark when I get out to the farm. And not to mention we still aren’t 100% moved out to the farm yet, and I have 100 projects I need to get done, and finish packing, and to top it off I’ve been sick. These last few days have been brutal. I haven’t let myself relax and get better so it’s my fault that I feel like garbage. I hate having a runny nose AND a stuffed nose at the same time. I also hate that with a cold I add “mbb” to words. Like “Momm-bb” and “Farmm-bb” I sound awful.
I did manage to go through all of my “new” tack and I really, really want to write a post about my new treasures, but I want to include pictures so I am gonna wait on that post until I can get my camera out there. I did find some really, really cool stuff that I’m very excited to show off!
My father in law came down last weekend and brought us a whole bunch of big lateral filing cabinets that he got someplace. He thought that we could use them in the barn. I’m not exactly sure where they are going to go right now, but I am thinking that they will be really useful especially if they keep mice out. He also made us hooks to hang tack on, but again not exactly sure where that is going to go for the time being. The barn needs major renovation and restoration which unfortunately isn’t a major priority at the moment. My horses have shelter although they choose not to use it. So as long as they have the choice to get out of the elements and it is safe for them. That is all that matters the barn renovations can wait until time and finances allow us to revamp it.
Anyways my head feels like it is going to explode, so I think that is about all I can type for now. Ugh…I feel like garbage.

But before I go I thought I would share this picture, which I think I've maybe shared before. It's Piney on the day I found him and brought him home. I have this picture in my office, but it was hidden behind some other stuff and when I saw it it just made me happy. Look at that scruffy red monster. It's like he is saying "I'm so very tired of this place. Please.PLEASE take me home" and look at that nerd in the glasses next to that red monster lol I will never forget that day.

  1. Lovely picture! Re those filing cabinets...my girlfriend picked up a couple of broken freezers and put them in her feed room. She keeps grain in them so she can scoop and close the lid knowing the little mice can't get in. I think you might find those filing cabinets will come in handy. :-) Feel better soon!
