Greetings from 36 degree Minnesota. It was above freezing for most of the day, and that meant all the precipitation we got came down as rain. Things got soggy, and now they’re getting treacherous and icy as temps drop. Plus, the snow is a’coming down. To all my fellow Midwest-dwellers, stay safe on the roads!
Today’s post showcases exactly what the title claims. Have a look.
Pretty accurate description? Beautiful views like these are definitely one of the redeeming points of spending chilly evenings outside at the farm. They just never look quite the same on camera as they do in real life!
In the midst of feeding grain to the outdoor pens of calves this weekend, I stopped to contort myself in an attempt to find the right angle and capture the colors in the sky. At that moment, my husband came strolling over with Wellington close behind. I’m sure he would’ve made a fitting remark, but Wellington beat him to it with his deep, loud bark.
I probably looked strange standing in the middle of the yard doing something out of the ordinary, so Welle clearly felt the need to announce this to the world 🙂
Over this Thanksgiving weekend, I didn’t get in many miles. Traveling, spending time with family and keeping up with things at the farm just consumed most of the available hours. And I’m just not one of those people to sacrifice family time (or baby calf time)!
I was lucky enough to have Friday off from my 9-5 job, so I made a trip to the gym on Friday for my lone run of the four-day weekend.
I set the timer for an hour, fiddled with the pace or incline whenever I got too bored, and managed 6.29 miles. That brings last week’s grand total mileage to 12.5 So be it.
Today was honestly nuts, but I really wanted – maybe needed – to get in some form of a run. I again headed for the treadmill (because I’m wimpy and wanted to avoid the rain) for 25 minutes. Almost 3 miles is certainly better than no miles at all.
Did your normal routine get altered due to the long Thanksgiving weekend? Do you happily go with the flow, or are you one of those who miss your regular schedule?
Do you attempt to capture beautiful sunsets (or other scenic wonders) on camera only have them turn out “not quite right” ?
