Restless

We are still without water. Grrrrrr! It's been over two weeks that we've been having water problems.  This is getting old.  Then I just saw where there was another main water line break, so the county has to shut down the whole system again.  Double GRRRRRRR!  I guess I'm gonna have to break down and start hand dipping water from our old cistern and bringing it to the house, heat it on the wood stove, so that I can clean some dishes.  I'm starting to run out of clean forks. :0) There's not much we can do.  I guess we just have to roll with the punches.

Along with no water, we are getting hammered with winter storms.  I didn't put any pictures on here because, well, if ya seen one snow picture of our place, you've seen them all, in my opinion. lol   The animals are doing okay in this weather.  The temps aren't very cold like they were.  No wind chills below zero. The rest I think they can handle.  My only problem is I'm getting cabin fever BAD!!!!!!  I've checked and checked Facebook all through the day.  It seems like that is my only life line to the outside world.  It's getting so bad that I even considered going back to work. (GASP!)  I know this feeling will pass when the weather gets better.  Plus, I've recently been having nightmares about going back to work so I know that won't be the best decision. I think staying home would be best for both of us.  Once the weather breaks, I'll be getting outside more and this feeling will go away.  The seed porn isn't helping. Although, it is giving me something to think about.  I'm wanting to try new kinds of veggies this year.  Not real sure yet what it will be, but I'll keep you updated on what I decide to pick.

Like I said, nothing really going on here at the farm.  Just waiting on another winter storm.  Keep safe out there everyone!

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, restless.

Many of us feel the same way. Even here in Texas we are ready for Spring already

I've only ever been Ice (w/a little snow mixed in) bound once, thank goodness. I think I can understand the stir crazy aspect of it though. spring really is 'just around the corner'.

Small Farm Girl,

I so feel your pain regarding the cold weather, and snow. I'm ready for it to stop. I've even considered doing an Indian (snow instead of rain) dance to make it stop, lol......

Spring will be here before we know it.....right??

It must be tough for you at the moment, and I understand your pain about things. Here in France, we are just wet, with lots of rain, and a river on our doorstep which has never flooded as much as it has these last two winters. But at least the weather is fairly mild, although our animals are getting cabin fever with having to be under cover for days at a time. Sending blessings to you. Vx

Here in South Jersey is is extremely cold and just a few storms left us with very much snow. I guess we got maybe 2 inches last week. The one before that maybe 6. I enjoy snow, but you sound like you are really roughing it! My husband is studying his seed catalogs!

I Hope your water problem doesn't continue too much longer, I just couldn't imagine. I can't wait to get out too. I went out to take pictures and thought the same thing you did- snow forget it.
