....and absolutely everywhere else!
We are inundated with mud.
It's up to our ankles.
Luckily, everyone has somewhere to go to escape the mud.
The donkeys house is high and dry,
and these girls appreciate that.
Mud is not their thing.
They avoid ever getting wet or dirty or windblown or.....
weather-worn in any way.
The horses? Now that's a whole different thing.
I swear they don't even notice the mud.
They don't mind walking through it...
and don't even mind lying down in it for a nap.
Hence, the mud all over their fur...
Chickens will walk thru it if necessary,
but always prefer to remain on dry land.
The pigs? Well, they'll venture out if they know there is a treat awaiting them...
otherwise, a warm stall full of hay...
with room service three times daily
is more their style.
Me? I thank my lucky stars that I have a pair of muck boots.
This is definitely the muckiest winter ever!
The good news is...
the old log cabin is once again a springhouse...
with its bounty draining through a pipe running under the driveway
and into the pond.
The pond is the fullest it's been all year...
which makes our last three remaining domestic ducks quite happy.
There are also several wild mallards that call the pond home.
They've got a good thing here...
fresh food daily and a lovely green pond.
Did you know that the color of the year is GREEN??
It's good to know the pond is so stylish!
I did a little more sewing yesterday...
two more woolen pouches for keeping knitting needles safely tucked away.
I am taking a day off from blogging tomorrow.
Hubbs surprised me with a day trip to NYC.
We are leaving early this morning for a train ride to the Big Apple and
seeing the play "Front Page" this afternoon.
I hope to fit in a quick trip to the fabric district as well.
Don't worry...the farm will be well cared for.
Even the pups have a house-sitter for the day.
I'll be back here on the blog Friday morning.
