It is a beautiful morning as I look out my window. Blue sky, sun shining, and not much wind, but....... it is SO COLD! It is -20C (-4F). Brrrrrrrrrr! Sadie could hardly get up the back steps, her little feet were so cold.
Rae's team won bronze in the provincial tournament. They were so pleased. The games were really well played, with lots of great teamwork, and some amazing shots. Three of the girls were celebrating their birthdays, so the parents got a cake for them, and they celebrated between games.
It is so great to see these girls enjoying one another's company, having fun together. It was bittersweet because for three or four of the girls, it was their last high school game, as they are graduating in June. It was a great way to finish their year.
It was a long day, but I really enjoyed it. I was very tired on Sunday, and if I hadn't been responsible for playing the organ, I might have fallen asleep during the service. :) The weariness lingers, but it was worth it. I have to make choices. Where and when do I expend my energy? This past weekend was important to Rae, and I am glad I did not miss it.
I had planned to go shopping for a few things today, but I do believe I will not go out. The cold does a job on my poor old body, so again I must make a choice. How important is it that I go out?
At this moment, not very.
The lambing has begun at Ironwood, and if remember right, they have three sets of twins, with more to come later this month I think. I am anxious to see them, but I will need to wait until it warms up some. When I think of those babies being born in the cold barn it makes me shiver. H says that they are ok, once they are cleaned up, and dried off. Amazing.
So, now I am waiting for a little more warmth to come from old Sol, the snow to melt, and the crocus to peek up through the ground. That will be the real sign of Spring.
For now, I will enjoy the view out my window.
