I did it. I finished that manure pile!!! Praise Jesus! I am so glad I stuck with it, even on the days I really wished I could just ignore it. After I finished it yesterday, I stopped at my parent's house to have a cold drink and chat with my parents. My dad was home and he always has questions about my sheep. He is an old farm boy and you can see a glint in his eye when we talk about this stuff. I know he's happy for me, and happy that I am doing something he did, though, if you were to ask him, he would tell you he does not miss it one bit!
After I chilled a bit, I went back and brought some panels to the hill pasture. I had turned all the sheep out and they are now out for the duration. I need the pen so I can pull out the ones I want to/do not want to feed and also the ones I want to use to train the dogs. I don't want to have to grab and wrangle more than I have to, especially with lambs a foot.
Very chilly last night, almost made it all night with no heat, but by 3:30 I had to get up and turn heat on. I am so low on oil..it's scary. But, I have to buy 100 gallons and it's almost $4.00 a gallon... and well, I would rather be a bit cold... especially when I have other pressing bills to pay.
I just finished an egg.. sort of.. I make two and eat 1/2 of one and dogs get rest.... oh, and cat gets a bit too...
Today is a fun day. I am not going to start my next task, I am going to have some me time.
Hope you all are having a great weekend!
