Day 16, Sabbatical Part Deux

Yesterday was a quiet day. I could say that it’s recovering from vacation, but I really felt fine. The weekend in Vegas with family was great, with lots of laughs, too much indulgence, and a few losses, but not too bad. A good time, and everyone would like to go back again next year.


I came home to 55F temps at the airport Sunday night around 8. Supposedly it was over 70F (21C) during the day and records were set. I woke up to something less than that. We went out and did chores, and while driving to breakfast (we treated ourselves), it was 16F (-9C).

No snow, as we went out early (815), and we were trying to beat it. While my wife got grain ready, I loaded up a bale in a net. These slow feeding nets work great in bad weather.


An hour later, it was coming down. We had to get out there and blanket horses. Not hard, but hard work. And it takes time, as we have 20 on the property. We want to get it done quickly, before they get too covered with snow and wet, just like humans. It’s supposed to get down to single digits tonight.

My daughter’s horse was sporting a new look, and I sent her a picture.


I filled water while my wife did blankets, and after about 2 hours, we were done with all chores and prep for the storm.

From there, we went for breakfast, since we didn’t get a lot of groceries the night before after landing. We got home, and I spent about 2 1/2 hours practicing guitar. It was a good time for me, and I worked on “Wonderful Tonight” for a good portion of time.

Late afternoon was yoga, then back home where my wife and I watched a little of “This is Us”. My sister in law told us about the show, and we watched the first few episodes. Great writing and enjoyable.
