Hay! Oh, and Pissing in the Snow.

Today we were up at the crack of dawn.  I knew we had to get up early, but when Master poked me and said time to get up, my brain went "What?  What day is it? Why are we getting up in the middle of the night?  Oh yeah, the hay".    I think what came out of my mouth sounded more like "unnnnnhhhhhh". 

So I made breakfast while he showered and then we headed out to pick up a load of hay before the ground got so squishy that the van would get stuck in mud.  

We had a long car ride, and had a good talk about things in general, and relationships.   No problems, but it is always nice to be able to talk.

About 20 minutes from home I realized that my 2 cups of coffee was hitting me.  I had to go.  I really had to go.  I told Master, and he said "We're almost home, you can make it".   

About 5 minutes from home I said I didn't think I could make it all the way to the house, could I just pee in the woods beside the driveway?   He said yes.   When I got out of the car, he said to come around to his side, as he wanted to watch.   I never really thought (a few years ago) we'd get into that kink, but I have to admit that we both kind of do.  He enjoyed watching and I love having him enjoy watching.   As I was going, he told me to raise up a bit so he could see better.   I did, as much as I could without peeing in my boot.   A little humiliating?  Sure, but the fun kind. Besides I REALLY had to go.

The hay hauling went smoothly, then we had to carry all the bales about 70 feet up into the top of the barn.   That was some work, but with two of us it didn't take that long.

When I fed the sheep I found two new ram lambs that were born last night, and they are doing well.  Their mom was already in the barn- she's actually the one that was sick last week, so I'm super happy that the lambs were born safely and are doing well.

  1. Maybe I'll sound like a freak, but... Good to hear that you've got new lambs and that their mummy is doing well. And of course that you had nice day :)

We've been on vacation

Mexico! I may get back to blogging eventually, but for now there is laundry to do, food to restock in the kitchen, things to put away......
