Evening Thoughts

Warmer temps have melted most of the snow that we had a week or so ago and Mother Nature has left us with mud everywhere. The ground is so saturated with water that it can not hold another drop. Mud covers everything and the ground is like a giant sponge soaking it up while remaining wet and squishy.

Walking anywhere on the farm is next to impossible. No matter where you place your feet, there is mud. Shoes and boots are covered, which leads to mud inside as well as outside. Floors can be cleaned several times a day and yet, you will for sure see a spot somewhere that was missed in the last cleaning or that has just been tracked in by someone.

With rain in the forecast for several days this week, it is only going to be worse. As a kid, I am sure I would have greatly enjoyed this mud but mud pies are no longer an enjoyable experience for me. Now, I must clean it up and that is no fun. I would love to see the sun shine and dry things up for a few days, but until that happens we will continue to walk around feeling like pigs that are playing in the mud or taking a very expensive mud bath for free if we fall in it. Maybe I should charge for people to come and wallow around in the mud and claim that it will make you look and feel younger.
