Winter Woes

Last evening as I struggled to push the manure-laden wheelbarrow down the unplowed, snowy driveway, thinking I'd not worked so hard in a long time, I stopped to catch my breath and took a second look at the front wheel.  Ha! Completely flat!  Well, I couldn't very well leave the manure in the middle of the driveway, so onward I pushed, dumped the load, and then pulled it backwards down the rest of the 500 feet or so.

This morning I bundled up with layer upon layer to meet the 0 degree day, only to find the wheels on the cart I use to tote water won't spin.  That meant pulling, pulling, pulling up the slight hill to get to the donks.  Since I won't have my wheelbarrow back until later today, the mess from last night got tossed to a pile on the side of the shed.  It will have to wait for another day...  


  1. Well, that's ONE way to burn calories, I guess... lol Hope things improve--and nothing else decides to break!!

  2. Oh bless your heart-that is just cruel. I know those babies appreciate how hard momma is working to keep them watered and clean :)

  3. Don't you just LOVE winter!
    Hope you got your wheels rolling again!
