For the better part of three weeks now we have had either snow, rain or clouds. Sunshine has been in very, very short supply.
The temperatures have risen above freezing, thus all the snow that we got around Thanksgiving has melted. But it has nowhere to go, so there are ponds and lakes everywhere you look. (We're way beyond puddles, folks.)
The pasture is starting to look like the battlefields of France.
I've steam mopped my kitchen floor every day for the last two weeks because it is impossible to keep the muck out, even with the required "take off your shoes at the door!"
The puppy is slow to house-train and there have been many accidents, all of which require spot cleaning.
My life is a daily grind of puppy-sitting and steam mopping.
Last night Number 6 came over to visit and I made stuffed butternut squash for our dinner.
It was, by far, the best part of my day.
