Spring has sprung, finally!

Been a very long, cold winter. But I'm confident that spring is now here. Now a quick prayer that this summer does not try and make up for the unseasonably cold winter and spring!

And these wild flowers, remind me of the sweet brooms you see around Disneyland, they are growing along our mile long walking trail that we have been walking/running this past month. Yep we are trying to get a little better health routine going here at the ranch, giving up some of the worse habits, eating better, and exercising more.

Love spring...

Spring cleaning = run to the dump. On the way back, pick up hay, dog food, propane, gas, groceries, then back home, broke and tired... Gotta love spring!

The drive to work yesterday...

I forgot to send a pic of my drive yesterday. Today however awoke to 40 degrees inside, and 24 outside! In the middle of April?

This is spring?

Yesterday brought us a lot of rain, and a few snow flurries, but I thought that was done when we went to sleep last night... Wrong. Woke up to a blanket of 2 inches of snow! What a difference from last week. Last Saturday we went to the river had a temp of 101, today snow and 30 degrees!

Some update pics...

Looks like the quick fix on the fridge worked, it has cooled down to safe level, and it only seems just a qt of milk soured. With that said, here are the pictures...

Been working on the saloon...

Well, the bar is one step closer to being done. We put on the bar rail around the top, and the corner trim. Just need to set the tile and grout. Then it'll be done. Also had a chance to finish the wiring in the bar, and put the trim around the fridge...
Which brings up one little over sight. We had wanted to enclose the fridge so we can insulate it from the heat in hopes to make it run a bit cooler in the summer months... It looks as through we made a mistake. Instead in the past several hrs the temp rose inside the fridge 10 degrees! Oops. So a quick fix in taking the back panel off and replacing it with one made of screen in hopes to lower that temp down.
Speaking of temperature, we hit 93 out here in the sticks today, which prompted me to put up the misters around the saloon porch. Which instantly lowers the temp on the deck, and with a nice breeze also helped lower the already cooler temp inside a bit. We will need to hang some drapes over the large window this summer, but it still shows signs of being cooler in there than any other building in the compound...

Sorry for the late update and lack of photos, but it's been a busy day!
