I was running late for the paying job this morning but today was the first time in a long time that I had the opportunity to watch the skies change from black to pink. The days are getting longer!!!!!!!!!
I hadn't realized it until today because we've had clouds for I don't remember how long and before that we only had a few hours of light and being at the paying job during those daylight hours, it's hard to know the days are getting longer. Just the thought brightens my day!
Even last night when I went out to do chores before 6pm, it was still a little light out. Of course I went out and hustled to get my chores done because I thought we had to put in round bales. Nope. We have to do that tonight instead. It's a pain because we have to juggle who will watch the kids but tonight my parents are down so hopefully between the four of us, we can get the bales in, chores done, and kids taken care of before the skies turn pitch black. We'll see. I'm not holding my breath.
But the weather is getting better as well. We are supposed to be in the 40s at one point this week. I'm not holding my breath but on the off chance that the weather DOES get better, I need to remember to pull Rain's blanket. There's so much to do and so little time.
I need to figure out how to utilize my time better...although being a mom to two very small children and caring for 16 horses, two dogs, and a cat (and a husband), I'm not sure how to utilize my time any better. Suggestions?
