February went rolling by at record speed. We seemed to pack a lot into the month, including two weeks of sickness; one for Farmer John during which I quarantined him and cooked a variety of foods I deemed healing, and another week for me when I succumbed to the virus that had felled him. We didn't suffer the body aches and high fever associated with influenza as so many of our friends and acquaintances have, but it was an uncomfortable time nonetheless.
With the busy times of spring pasture burning and moving cattle to pasture that are just ahead, we are sending up prayers for a healthier March.
