But at least...

There's no doubt about it, this is my least favorite time of the year. It seems like everyone's always talking about spring and new life and all that happy blather, but all I can think of during spring is mud. And I hate mud. But I'm trying to look on the bright side. The last couple weeks were pretty dismal around here and the weather didn't help any, but, like they say, there's a silver lining behind every cloud.

Here are my silver linings:

The eggs are so muddy from the chickens' dirty feet that we can hardly tell what color they are until we wash them, but at least we have fresh eggs to eat.

The dry cow pen is full, their pack is a disaster, and there's no relief in sight because every time a cow calves another one gets dried up, but at least that means the barn is full.

At the end of the day, Dan is covered in mud from head to toe, but at least that means he is able to run and play.

What are your silver linings?
