Mud is the order of the day. Lots of mud. And puddles. Lots of puddles.
This is a wet winter so far.
Which is fine with the ducks.
I am looking forward to The shortest day so we can get to the other side and have more light. Even the ducks are laying less at the moment. Or at least laying less in the barn.
I think the grass is still growing – slowly – but still synthesizing. Which is great for the cows.
I am almost through my second week of study and I think I am doing ok with the time management. This was my biggest concern. I am scooping the poop a little less but other than that I don’t think the animals are any worse off for my 9-12 am study period.
The work is not hard – just a lot of it- my main challenge is ensuring I answer every part of the question in the written work. We are making lesson plans this week and I love that kind of bullet point, ordered work but I do tend to go off in my own direction forgetting that this is an exercise with definite parameters so the lecturer can mark it. Not so I can teach it. I need to write to her requirements – not mine.
This is a challenge for me. A good one too.
Good morning! I hope you have a lovely day.
WEATHER: Very mild. I had the bedroom windows open last night again. Not too cold at all.
