Return from the Frozen Tundra of Texas
Cowgirl is back. Typical Texas winter weather is back. And, thank God for Walmart!!
After a week of rain, sleet, ice and snow, followed by more rain, today it was almost 60 degrees, and not a cloud in the sky. Pshew! Now, mind you, I am NOT complaining about the rain. We need tons more rain to fill the lakes, but trust me on this, the ground is now saturated. And then some.
Today, we moved the cows. Two days ago, I went to Walmart and bought a new pair of rubber boots, which turned out to be a brilliant idea. This afternoon, I was ankle deep in cold, sloshy mud where the cattle had been churning up the very, wet earth at the gates. It took ages to clean the boots afterwards, but my tootsies were dry and warm. One of the new babies (we are just starting calving season), is so gentle, he let me rub his head and back. And it was a beautiful day. Soaked up lots of Vitamin D.
Reading the news, it seems like the world is going to hell in a handbasket. But, today, slogging around in the mud in the sunshine, and loving on a precious little calfie, all was right with the world.
