Greetings from Minnesota! The temperature climbed above 32 today, and the smell of spring is faintly in the air. I know we probably haven’t seen the last of snow and cold, but I’m pretty certain we might be done with below zero temperatures for this winter.
Bet you’ll never guess what I did on Sunday…
Well, I’ll tell you! I put my rather novice video and narration skills into action at the farm. The first video gives a look at some of our baby calves in hutches. You even get to hear a few animal sound effects. The second video shows the grown-up gals in one of our milking cow barns. I tried to offer a few helpful comments about animal care and descriptions of what you’re seeing, but you can always mute me if I get too boring 😉
If you have any questions about what you see in the videos I would love to talk more about them. Just leave me a comment, and I’ll respond as soon as I can.
So on this Valentine’s Day (bet you thought you were going to escape today’s post without a v-day reference, didn’t you??). On this Valentine’s Day, I knew I wouldn’t have time to run unless I created time. “Creating time” is code for just getting up earlier. I crawled out of bed way before I wanted to, wished my sleeping husband a happy valentine’s day, and headed off to the gym.
My legs weren’t really sore from my long run this weekend, but they were definitely more tired than usual. I did an easy first mile by necessity and then kept increasing the speed as I went. Final stats of 3.75 miles @ 9:25. A good run for a Monday, but I wish it would have felt a little easier. I hopped off the treadmill a few minutes early because I knew I needed some extra time to stretch.
Today was yet another reminder of why I like to run in the morning. It’s a great way to start the day! ( if only it didn’t involve getting out of bed so early…)
Happy Valentine’s Day to all. I don’t mean to sound mushy, but hopefully you think of all your loved ones today and have a happy reminder of how blessed you are. I will definitely be saying a little extra prayer of thanks tonight.
Any questions on my first-ever farm videos?
Do you have a hot date for tonight? 🙂
