“Hoping to get a head start on the next day, I eat breakfast the night before. That way I can sleep in until two in the afternoon.”

Hello, Peoples!

It’s cold here at the farm this morning. Brrrrrrrrr!

Too frosty for paws just yet. There’s ice in my water bowl, and every breath is a fogged cloud.

We might stay abed a little longer. It’s warm in here and oh-so-snug. Perfect for a sleep-in.

It was a big day yesterday; clearing windblown timber, chainsawing wood for the fire and stacking the wood shed, and feeding out mixes of copra and minerals and molasses to all of the cows and their babies.

Also, my brother Harry and I needed baths because molasses sticks to dogs like nobody’s business. And dirt and grass and general filth sticks to the molasses.

I’m still so tired, and it’s early. The sun isn’t even properly up.

There’ll be time enough later for romps through the paddocks, and games with the new calves.

Turn the light off. Keep the curtains drawn. Let’s close our eyes and go back to sleep!
