I got up this morning and was excited to see clear skies briefly...until the blanket of gray moved in again. Reminds me of a song that our dd, now 16, used to tap dance to when she was little:

"Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun, Please shine down on me!"

LOL....

I was in Grand Rapids at Spectrum yesterday for a head-banging whopper of a doctor's appointment, but the weather was nice. Until 14 hours later when I got to drive home. At least it didn't get too dark before I got back.

Today, yeeesh. I'd just like to warm my bones a bit in the sun is all.....

*sigh*

I'm starting to develop a Weather Channel phobia. We have half our fence posts up. If I can jeeeest get up the rest, and the fence stretched. Getting a little pony shed built so our new mare can come home would be nice too.

With my husband's schedule and the weather, it took us 3.5 weeks to get the first 21 posts up. 3.5 hours for the final 19. We're done until the pasture. Wanted to ease up on projects for a while, but we're going to be pushing through the current ones for the next month, then we have a pasture to do. Ugh. Mid-June I want that pasture DONE. No fences in summer! Besides, we'll have thigh-high grass by then if I don't have the pasture fenced.

I told my son we're going to find a fishin' spot off the Rails to Trails trail and we're going to ride the horses to it and catch some fish and soak in the heat of the day. Need to get the other mustang saddle trained first. The new one is already saddle trained, she was a cow horse for a decade. She'll be a big help finishing the other one. Then the boys need to get their little pony girl trained.... It's going to be a doozy of a year. Finally signed up with a CSA, there will be no planting going on this year. Fences chickens and goats and horses are enough!

You ever get your fence posts dug ColdJensens? Now we get to figure out how to stretch no-climb. I'm not liking the idea of how tightly coiled that stuff is.... I think the posts were not the easy part of this deal!

No. Still too muddy back there. These are the supports for a fort in the woods, not really for a fence. We will not get to the fence this year.

If you want a free Rooster or two and you will be downriver anytime in the immediate future, send me a DM. One is really pretty. The other was pretty, but currently looks like roadkill (from fighting with the bigger one I think, maybe he is just molting). He should be pretty again if he gets out on his own. Both are pretty loud.

Its not rare that like this April you get a foot of snow in April. I have seen the leaves out and forrests green and 8 to 10 inches of snow. Its what you get living that far north. You only have about 5 to 6 months of summer that is reliable in Michigan. Nov. To April are on the side of winter many times. Not always but if you want nice weather Michigan ain't it.

I took a drive down some side roads a few days ago and saw snow in patches. No leaves are out at all yet. It actually still looks like a November scene instead of April. It's only been in the last day or two that my daffodills show a little color.

While we have had close to 4 inches of rain this week and the woods is so flooded the deer are having a tough time finding a water free beding site. They have settled on the side of our hill in the pines of a dry spot in the front yard. Even the turkeys are not finding nesting sites so easy today. I saw one this after noon building the nest on the edge of the corn field which is hoigh ground.

Still No one has died from our weather here thank the great spirit. To bad, so many there could not have been snow & cold haters like so many whiners here.

Oh the daughter drove to work in snow this morning from Wisconsin to Minnesota.
