Ahhhh......Winter Has Arrived


Guess what I got to do this morning........Yes.....That's it! Shovel! We had a marvelous six inches of snow last night on top of the ice from Saturday on top of the three inches of snow on Sunday! Now I'm freezing after spending forty minutes outside, chasing horses, feeding them and feeding goats and screaming at Spot the Border Collie to back off as it's much fun to attack the snow and shovel as I attempt to shovel it. I don't like my husband to shovel besides of which he's sick from last night's crab cakes he ate at The Cheesecake Factory. Horses are pissy because I locked them out of the pasture this morning and managed to humiliate Misty with a red blanket. That's why they're running around. I say quit it and eat your breakfast! Now I'm frozen to my core. I've found a good combo for my Avonex hangover on Sunday to Monday. I take Alieve and Ibuprofen and I can keep the headache at bay. Still have it on Sunday after the shot, but It keeps it from showing up on Monday as well.

Thanks guys, although it's work and can get cold, I wouldn't change it. I stood out there yesterday in the cold and topped the animals water with the hose, but it's tricky in the cold. I have to wind up the hose afterward quickly and turn the water off before it freezes. Can be a pin,but I always manage each year. Three more inches tonight I hear.

Such pretty horses!

And I'm glad to see your remedy for the Avonex headache did NOT include large quantities of alcohol (pay no attention to any of MDMHVONPA'S self-help suggestions now or in the future...the man has the liver of a sewage processing plant!).
