Snow days are wonderful days...

This is a post I shared earlier this month on my craft blog...
Snow days are wonderful days...
no school...no work...no dealing with 100 screaming 7th graders...
now don't get me wrong I love my job
but sometimes its nice to have an unexpected break.

Around our house snow days mean...
You get to trek to the barn to feed up bawling calves and hollering baaing sheep,
in the freezing cold and can't complain because it is the life you choose.
Sometimes our jeeps get stuck in the snow and we have to use our hands to dig them out...
man if we had just put its top on!
You get the chance to snap what you thought would be a great picture of 3 calves...
while you are bottle feeding one...and fending another one off
Your horses stand in the snow to consume a bale of hay
and you get the mean green to the barn, turned around and almost back up to the house before you...
spin the wheels until the front driver's side tire is slick,
and you are stuck...
this means you have to wait on your husband to come home in the flatbed ton truck to get you out

it also means that the little bullrider above can't practice...
can't saddle up...
and must play all day in the freezing cold to make up for the two previous statements...
its also when i cook & bake...
a loaf of bread...
a pound cake...
oatmeal cookies...
potato soup...
thinking about meatloaf to go with the potato soup...
So what's the weather like where you live?
what do you do when you have an extra day at home?
i hope if its cold you are warm...i hope if its hot you are cool...
either way i hope you are enjoying your family
