Rough February at the Homestead

Our entire family came down with the flu last month! One after another we dropped, some only had a brush with the illness but the rest of us, including me, went down hard. I still have this nagging cough and it’s been nearly 30 days. Reminder to self, next year get the flu shot!

All is well with sheep and lambs, though. Everyone has made it through this terribly bitter cold winter and seem very happy to have warmer weather and soft grass, even if it’s brown, under hoof. I am sure Clodae won’t miss the cold snow.  WP_20140212_015[1]


But, it wasn’t all bad. We had lots of great sledding even some with sheep 🙂 And Cricket Manor is so beautiful covered in snow.



That said, I am SO ready for Spring!

    • Thank you so much! I am still coughing a bit, especial after breathing in cool air on the farm. But, I’m getting better. I will most definitely get a flu shot next year.

      The weather yesterday and today has been just beautiful here in southern Ohio. I’m not looking forward to tomorrow’s drop in temperature but at least we know it can’t last! 🙂
