Today the preferred option would be to not go outside. Even the sheep are hanging around inside the barn today. There's a cold wind blowing and snow swirling about, and as that saying (sorta) goes, it's not a fit day out for man nor beast. The local weatherman is predicting lows in the single digits tonight. But, it is beautiful....so beautiful, looking out the windows toward that big oak tree in front of our farmhouse. Unfortunately, there's no automated livestock feeding facility here at Tanglewood Farm, someone will have to go out into the cold to feed all the animals. I feel a little guilty admitting that, for a change, it won't be me. I have been feeling a little under the weather (no pun intended--I promise) and Mike has taken over my barn chores for the day.
This is the best option of all. I've been spending my afternoon knitting in front of the fireplace and I'd be perfectly happy to stay right here until bedtime. There are a few small projects coming off the needles and I hope to be up and at it tomorrow and will take pictures when there is better light.
