The winter has arrived.
We were warned from early on this week, that the cold would hit the country by this weekend. And it did! Not that I’m complaining, mind you! As I’ve told you before, I love winter and everything that goes with it. Up to now, we’ve had unseasonably warm temperatures, so it was time for the cold to strike. One cannot have a year without winter now, can we? 😉
It is Sunday morning, not too early, and I’m wondering how we are going to spend our day. We have several cows about to calf (we think so, since we don’t know much about being cattle farmers! We could still be waiting this time next month, for all I know!) Yesterday one of them really seemed to be uncomfortable, so we’ll probably spend a lot of time on the farm, to make sure they are all fine, especially since it is so very cold.
And then there is the Montreal Grand Prix, later on today, which we will most probably watch, since my SO* is such a petrolhead! I really don’t mind that, since I’ve always loved beautiful cars as well, and I’ve learnt a lot about machines since we’re together.
We will make something to eat, somewhere during the day. We are not clock watchers, and we won’t necessarily have breakfast now (it is 8.28 am), and we probably won’t have lunch at 1pm. We do things rather randomly around here, but we all seem to be fine – nobody starving to death. But somewhere during the day, we will decide to put that pork roast in the oven, and make some veggies to go with it, and we’ll have a late lunch.
I mostly love Sundays, it is just once in a while that I feel a bit edgy, or irritated, and those are the days that I hope something comes up to make it a little bit less…quiet, shall we say?
So, here’s wishing you all a wonderful Sunday. May you have the kind of day that you enjoy having. Since tomorrow it is back to work for all of us, may you also have a day of rest and quiet, and be refreshed for the week ahead.
PS. I know I owe you one more ‘history lesson’ from our trip – I will get around to it this week.
