Long Johns - Sugar Update

I could not believe that I had to come into the house last night and put on Long Johns and a heavy winter coat while I sat with Sugar.. After all the barn cleaning, hay moving and chicken chasing Saturday afternoon I thought I was over dressed to stay in the barn. Boy, was I wrong. I guess a front had come in and Sugar was glad to snuggle... The wee one in the other barn did not stray from her Mother because she wanted that body heat as well. Chief was a popular guy with all the little kids snuggling and sleeping on him. He was in seventh heaven when not outside barking. The coyotes where busy and very vocal which kept us on our toes.

With enough clothes on and my great portable DVD player with me (thanks Kids) I made it through while watching "Dead Like Me". I giggled through out the night and took cat naps when I could... The barn was sick of hearing me cough - allergic to hay you know - isn't everyone who has a farm??

So now I will unfold my body, make me breakfast with lots of very HOT COFFEE to thaw out..

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to my son Nick - Reese is one lucky little boy to have you..

When you spend the night in the barn, do you have a place to sit or lay down. A place for people, that is. Not goats. I just worry if you sit on that hard ground all night.

I make do with a folding chair and hay bales. Had a cot but after the kids forgot to put it away the sheep ate it and just never replaced it. Besides get to comfortable I would not wake up when need be... Thanks for worring but this gal has spent a lifetime sitting and sleeping in a chair watching over ill father, husbands, relatives and four leggeds - seems that in a bed I still can only sleep for a couple of hours at a time...

Haha WONDERFUL. Having grown up on a 300 acre horse ranch in Elbert I think I may have only had around 10 days of my childhood where I didn't have hives from the hay and alfalfa.
