Cold Shower

Away and back again. My second presentation on livestock guardian dogs is over and done. Afterward I enjoyed a visit with my sister and family. Today I gingerly picked my way home again as our province is being swept with a springtime winter storm. A cold shower if you will.

When I left there was only a little bit of snow in the tree belts and valleys. Everything looked so hopeful for Spring. It felt like the shock of a cold shower to see the yard blanketed by snow once again.

I’ll enjoy this evening arrived fresh home and tucked indoors and then next up is earnest preparation for shearing on Tuesday.  Panels to move, building to ready, sheep to sort, meals to make. And prayers that the snow ceases and the sun shines to be said.
