Holiday Time

Most years to a certain extent I look forward to the holidays. If for no other reason than that I miss seeing my family. This year however it is just drudgery. I'm simply not in the holiday/Christmas spirit. I'm tired and have felt horribly depressed the last few weeks. 

Fortunately we are almost done with our shopping for family. Just a few folks left, and of course some more spoiling of the Princess. 

I think part of my issue is that I just want nice weather back. I'm dying to get some candy onions in the ground, and I just can't wait to get back to working with the ponies. Now that we have a new pony for Peg we have just that much more to be done. Gambit will need to be bomb proof and then some by the time she is ready for him in another 2 or so years. That requires much training and effort. 

On the bright side December is passing quickly, and my hens are all laying fantastically considering it is the slow time of year for them. I'm just a little too ready for April :)

With the shorter and gloomy days it is hard not to be a little depressed. You need to come see me once in a while when it is not snowing out! Keep your chin up and just think how much fun Christmas will be with Miss Peggy Ann!

We do need to stop up. Jade's schedule keeps changing and he is exhausted from it. We have to move the trailer for his grandparents over to Wendy's. Maybe we can stop after that :)
