View from the sheep’s pasture to my son’s barn.  This was yesterday morning.  It cleared up late morning and the sun came out and everything started melting again.

CLEANING THE BARN

We worked a few hours on the barn yesterday morning.  There was 4 inches of mud in the entry way.  It’s all cleared away and water is now coming in.   I have bought some horse stall pellets to put down and they will soak up some of the water.  When I went to get the shavings the owner said that everyone’s barn is flooding this year.  I hope that Chris and I can come up with a solution because this takes a lot of time and I am lucky that I don’t have a barn full of hay because the bottom layer of it would be mulch and I would have to get it out of the barn ASAP.

Scrubbing Mitt

I am making Scrubbing Mitts with some linen yarn that I have.   It will be great for exfoliation and am going to include a bar of my soap with it.

Sorry to hear about your weather and the wet barn, things like that don’t help do they? Hopefully you will soon have spring weather.

Right now everything is frozen again but I think by the weekend we will be having another thaw. There will be more water in the barn and then that will be it. I have the cat nip toys all packaged up and hope to get the out tomorrow.
