IN MY WORLD
My Fainter doe, Ivy, is really bagging up. Bill built her (me) a good size stall in the goat house and it’s almost ready for her. Last weekend was our anniversary. I went snow shoeing with our three dogs so they’d be good and spent while we went out to the End Zone in Waterville that evening for some music, drinks and some snacks. I tried their Greek fries. They were so good! I found myself wondering if it’s always been winter, and what spring must feel like while I was shoveling super heavy snow. I felt myself becoming mad at the snow, and it fueled my shoveling. Then I flung it really hard, yelling at it. Then I hurt my back. No winners here. Please Spring - hurry!
