Here I sit with not one, but 2 bags of frozen peas on my SI joints. Ugh! We've been teased by beautiful weather the past few days. I've been itching to start some of the zillion spring farm projects that need to be done. So yesterday I started cleaning out the goat pen. I spent the better part of the day schlepping fork full after fork full of wet, stinky hay out of the pen and I'm only half way through. As much as I love being out in the warm sun, working on the ranch, my weak back is is preventing me from working to my full capacity. Despite the 60 degree temperatures today, I kept myself in trying not to obsess over the work outside. I need to be careful. I'm useless to my animals if I can't walk.
