It’s March you guys, March. Where did the first few months of 2018 go? I think I blinked. Then they were history. I don’t mind them flying by because that means I’m one step closer to making it to summer! I live in Minnesota. That’s a BIG thing. Big.
We haven’t had much snow at all this year and everyone is speaking of droughts and scared for the crops. I grew up on a farm. I can’t get away from this stuff!
I just smiled and shook my head and said we weren’t done with the winter season yet. We can’t breathe a sigh of relief until June around these parts. Don’t get your panties in a bundle! The moisture will come.
I don’t want to toot my own horn, but guess what we’ve had two of in the last two weeks? Snowstorms. Sigh. I suppose it will snow the entire month of March and maybe April now!
I knew that was going to happen or in April when everyone was waiting to get into the field to plant the crops it would start raining and not stop. Not saying that might not still happen! Very possible, very.
My husband was also worrying about the no snow thing, but for a completely different reason. He loves the snow because he snow plows. Then he banks all the time up so he can go work in the field and use that time off instead of his vacation time.
See everything comes back to farming in my life. I did not marry a farmer. Why did this still happen??
I really should be thankful, right? My husband is helping my family farm even though it’s not us farming.
He’s a helpful guy like that. Pretty much a rock star actually. Other than the whole taking out the garbage thing… he still struggles with that!
Sometimes I forget that I should be so thankful for him being like that. For example, my cousin has been working for me which includes helping me prep and clean up recipes one day a week. The hubs has been home for a few of those days.
For the record, yes he has a job, snow plowing sometimes amounts to weird hours. Just want to clarify that!
After him being around a few days, she looked at me and said, “Wow, now that is awesome.”
I kind of looked at her, raised my eyebrows, and wondered what she was referring to. Then I realized she was referring to the fact that he is so helpful. Well, actually, that he took well to me bossing him around and making him help!
He typically stays out of my way in the kitchen, but we decided to start a second blog, Gimme Some Grilling, and he gets wrangled into grilling as much as possible!
Sometimes you need people to point out the things in life you should be thankful for. It becomes “normal” to have a husband that helps so much and I forget that I should be grateful.
Grateful for the fact that as I look outside my office he’s outside shoveling snow in a snowstorm.
Yuck. You won’t catch me out there!
