A long day on the farm

[this was written Wednesday night but couldn't be uploaded until Thurs. morning]

I put in about 13 hours today, not all of which I enjoyed. It started this morning at 3:00 with frozen air lines in our milking barn, which delayed milking by over an hour. And once we finished milking, I had to spend a good bit of time thawing out the washing system. The day went on to include several different "thaw-out" sessions, fence building, calf delivering, and, of course, the evening milking.

After a day of constantly mumbling "now, what?!" to a never ending series of mini-crises, he're to having faith that tomorrow will be a better day.
