I'm sure most of you have heard the old saying about never watching a pot because it won't boil. I'm thinking that is the same thing with waiting for spring. I don't know how you feel about it, but for me its been along difficult winter.
I've rejoined the work force so it means part of my day is spent driving to the day job and returning home to do the 'mom' thing such as laundry, cooking, cleaning, and taking care of the farm animals. With all this cold weather and snow, I've spent a lot of time hauling water or breaking the ice with a shovel, then scooping it out so the cow can get something to drink. The dog too has suffered. He's getting a bit on in age and his joints, like mine, don't take to the up and downs of Tidewater weather.
So, I sit here today and actually look at sunshine and wonder, how long till spring. I know it's around here somewhere. The more I look for signs the longer it seems to take. Well, here's hoping to see warmer temps soon.
