Winter Woes

We cleaned two homes today and every bone and muscle hurts. It is a 5 hour period of bending, leaning, pushing, (vacuuming), hands and knees, (baseboards) stretching, and wiping. I didn't expect to be so sore after that fall on the ice on Wednesday. But it has been a long time since I have fallen on something as hard as that frozen water! Advil is my friend right now. Nothing is broken, just sore. Just please go away winter!

Does anyone have a daffodils trying to grow yet? Mine are still hidden in the frozen tundra. I haven't seen any robins in our neck of the woods either. Since it is supposed to snow tomorrow, I think I will make some bread and that will help warm the kitchen too!

Watching the birds at the feeder and watching the deer are my entertainment during these frozen months. Last week I drove up the drive way after work and noticed the horses all looking at something near their lot. Then I saw them! There were 8 deer grazing beside the run-in shed and 4 of them were bucks! Two were BIG bucks, and two were younger bucks and 4 does and last years fawns. They all watched me, as I sat there in my truck watching them, and then they hopped the fence and ran down into the woods behind the barn. That was a sight to see!

Glad the twins are in a better place and get to come visit at least. I know what you mean! Housecleanning is hard work and I hated it. I was good at it but really dreaded those days. I quit doing the dog meds for Ron. December was my last time. He got pushy and I just don't have the patience to put up with him anymore. So glad you didn't break any bones falling on the ice! Need to get you some baseball shoes with the spikes on them. ;) No daffodils yet. Sorry!
