So I’ve been married a little over two months now.Â After getting all the hay hauled into the place, I took some of the wedding money and bought a chainsaw.Â I then spent the next two weeks cutting firewood for the two houses, reasoning that I should get a bunch cut before the snow hit.
The snow hit Sunday night.Â And then the cold hit.Â Now we dress in miniature houses when we go outside.Â You can’t turn your head more than thirty degrees to either side, can’t raise your arms parallel with your shoulders, can’t step higher than six inches, and the cold is still unbearable.
But we got the cows in close to the house, we have all the hay home, we have a big woodpile (not big enough, I now realize)Â andÂ my mother-in-law and I winterized my house yesterday.Â Bonnie got me an early birthday/Christmas present; a J Crew black leather coat to wear for good.
Today is Thanksgiving and my mother-in-law’s birthday.Â This morning we all had a red beer, and now the Mr. and Mrs. Hubba and little Hubbette are going to the Pat Trask residence for Thanksgiving.Â Tomorrow is Tom and Becky’s wedding rehearsal, and Saturday, the former Sr. Maria Magdalena of Christ Crucified, Rebeccah Joan Trask, will become Mrs. Tom Bruch.
So I’ve got three days of parties to look forward to, a new coat to wear to all of them and plenty of wood on the fire.Â So Bring It, Old Man Winter.
Happy Thanksgiving y’all.
