Thursday, April 18..the working grind
Thursday, April 18, 2013
I knew I needed to get up early to stay ahead of the weather but didn't feel enthused and didn't think I was going to get it done with the wildly swirling wind. 6 bottles of lamb milk, a bale of hay, four bowls of dogfood and a bowl of salmon for the cat, 4 feedings for ponies later I was hitting the road...no rain til the lake bridge...not too bad til getting close to downtown...blinding rain, heavy traffic and numerous eighteen wheelers later I was at work, early. To get a quicker start I stuffed my food bag with two packets of microwave popcorn, 3 food bars and a pudding snack ....uh...I think packing my lunch the night before is a better move...that got real boring and probably not very nutritious.
Mom insisted on feeding the little lambs this evening. She seems to have them down to a science. Each of the three gets their own bottle and she notes how many ounces each takes and enjoys recounting the personality traits of each....Well...time to go wash towels for the lambs.
