So Friday night we had a surprise 40th B-day party for my husband. I thought for sure that he knew what was going on - but he didn't :leap: It was a surprise and he was so happy and had so much fun. So we finally got home about 2-3 am saturday morning, and of course we still had dinner feeding - which ment some upset animals. There is a cold front coming in so it was a little cold. I got everyone fed (as DH was inside passed out) and watered and then off to bed. It was 34-36 degrees outside with a windchill putting it at about 10 degrees. We woke up at 1pm saturday, fed, and went to town. The cold front started coming in even worse. It was about 22 degrees and with the windchill about 5-10 degrees. Everything was freezing and getting nasty. the poor horses are having to walk on frozen squishy mud by the gate - and I feel so bad - but they insist on peeing in front of the gate so it makes the mud worse. So last night when we got home about 10 - it was 16 degrees and I swear with windchill it was below zero. We decided to bring Blue and the Blackbelly ram in with the boys in the oversized horse stall and we put the 4 ewes and the 5 month old ram in with the does and 2 wethers (that was a chore!!!!!!!!!!!!! The sheep and blue are unapproachable!) But we got it done. This morning is FREEZING. I went out and got about 1/2 way through everything and my fingers hurt so bad that I had to come in by the fireplace and warm up - then go out and finish. It is not so much the winter cold - it is that wind with the nasty cold front that is coming through this whole week. Thank goodness no kids are due for another 2 months! Anyway, so now I am looking at finishing my final for my Ethics and Values class, cooking a roast, and homemade bread!!! What did you all do this weekend?
