We awoke this morning to a chill in the air. It was late (still before 7 am). We had overslept. While the rancher did chores, I rolled over and snoozed a little longer. The cool air made getting out of bed an unsavory prospect. When the rancher came in, he asked me if I planned to stay in bed all day. I said that I might. We were all tired. My son had worked 27 days straight. Who knew how many days it had been since the rancher took a day off. For me, it wasn’t nearly as long, but I don’t do well working non-stop. We decided that resting was the priority for the day.
Resting is nearly all we accomplished today. We have to do chores. Animals won’t wait to be fed. Of course there was laundry to do as well. Still, the extra rest was nice.
