There aren’t enough superlatives to describe this day or this spring season of 2020! I have lived on this farm for 40 years and I do not remember a year when we had spring weather in April. March was even pretty nice and everybody said, “not so fast – we could get snow in April!” Well, we didn’t and the days are just soft and beautiful with temps in the 70’s. Get this – most of the farmers have all their corn planted and some are even finished with beans as well – unheard of!
When I think about yard work that isn’t finished yet, I have to stop and remind myself that it’s April not May and tomorrow is likely going to be another nice day and I can work then.
The puppies are pretty sweet but oh, so much work to do it right. They have played outside for hours today with short naps in between.
After the nap comes playtime.
Then collapse again.
Nighttime in the kennel produces little puddles of diarrhea – yet! But I’m told it’s all because of the worming. Oh, I so hope we’re almost done with this mess!
I didn’t get to sleep last night until 4 am and then I slept hard till 9:30! The puppies were ravenous and I’m so hoping tonight won’t be a repeat. I’m so tired right now, I feel like I could fall asleep but I know better. It just ruins my day to start it so late and I feel like I’ve been playing catch up all day.
It was such a beautiful day I decided I would open up the porch. If it cools off, I’ll have to keep the door to the house closed.
One side done!
Finished taking off all the covers.
Now lest you think I can just start enjoying the porch, look at how dirty the screens are. Yuck!
It will take me days to clean it and move into it. I’ve got a small “quilt from hell” to show you but I’m too tired tonight. Puppies are awake and calling me!
