The Girls sense that spring has almost sprung.

The Girls sense that spring has almost sprung.

first 67°F and breezy day of the year and The Girls were all clucking loudly LET US OUT TO GET ALL THE BUGS HUUUUMAN! so i did.

we’ve really enjoyed this small flock of hens for the past two years. they are super sweet. i think we’ll probably keep them around for awhile longer even though we have new layers coming in. so they’re not going to be dinner for a local amish family just yet :-)

painted lady.

painted lady.

oh nothing, just painting a giant wall sized cow mural at our new work digs, as one does. and nooooo, i’m not painting the whole thing. all the employees have an opportunity to come paint as much or as little as they want. then artist valerie miller from steel cow goes over it and makes it look amazing.

you can follow along with the ov employees painting barbara on steel cow’s facebook page.

12 miles! or almost half of a 50K ultramarathon!

12 miles! or almost half of a 50K ultramarathon!

i didn’t wake up on the first day or spring thinking i’d run 12 miles. in fact, when i woke up i thought i’d enjoy a rare Do Nothing Day with the end of the regular hockey season and no pressure to drive all around the upper midwest and sit in frigid hockey arenas. i guess i don’t do nothing very well ( which i don’t think is always a positive thing ).

i stiiiiiill haven’t committed to anything but it sure seems like i’m training for something. i could have easily ran 15 or 18 miles.

we got a bit of snow last night. i wonder if this will be my last run of the year with the white stuff on the ground.

oh nothing, just hanging out with rohan marley!

oh nothing, just hanging out with rohan marley!

many, many people are very, very happy that we are coming back with flavored half and half. one of those people is rohan marley who happens to be the chairman of marley coffee, a former pro football player and son of bob Marley!

i was walking past his booth while at a show to officially announce the relaunch, saw he already had them at his coffee station and of course I had to say “hi” and take a picture of him with my new “babies” that you will soon be able to find everywhere.

oh, the flavored half and half tastes incredible AND THE NEW BOTTTLES ARE GORGEOUS! super tough gig spending a week in southern california, listening to people rave about your new products :-)
