This time of year is so dreary. Up close, some branches are starting to swell with future buds and leaves, but from afar, it is just drab, brown branches, brown grass, mud and poop. There's still ice and snow in places, and the wind is just plain wicked.
Had a real late start this morning, then Herbie was called in to work early. He was grumpy, fell in the cow poop while putting out a fresh hay bale for the cows. Now the house reeks of cow, or maybe it's just in my nostrils.
Major, our black cat is AWOL. Didn't see him at all yesterday, nor did he come for breakfast this morning. I've called and called, don't know where he is. He usually comes running when I call, which still freaks Herbie out. He has been very annoying lately, (Major, not Herbie) seems to have a postrate issue, as he piddles one ir two drops everywhere, all the time. The cows feeding troughs in the milk parlour, the crack in the garage floor, the baby swimming pool in the garage, in the straw in the lower barn, against the wall at the front of the house, just everywhere and it's nasty. One of the reasons he is no longer allowed in the house, he does it somewhere in the stairwell to the basement, I can't find where but can sure smell it.
Need to butcher those roosters. They are now crowing, all the time from early morning before it is light, to late into the night. They's gotta go !
The house looks like a bomb has hit it. How can this be in such a short time ? If I go climb back into bed, will the magic fairy wave her wand making it all sparkling clean and tidy when I resurface ? Pretty please ?
