We’ve covered extensively in this blog that Jason is Canadian and is always hot. He thinks anything over seventy degrees is warm. If it is a dry day with bright sunshine he can walk around in forty degree weather in just a long sleeved shirt and feel comfortable. I cannot relate to this. At 70 degrees I’m walking around in a long sleeved shirt and feeling comfortable and I have no idea how anyone could comfortable wearing this at forty degrees.

Today Jason told me we needed another water trough. So we made a short trip to Tractor Supply Company and purchased a new 100 gallon water trough. As I came walking up to the barn this afternoon after feeding horses this was the scene:

Jason relaxing in a water trough???

I won’t lie, the first thing that went through me head was “OMG am I really married to such a redneck? Is this my life?” I know, I’m ashamed of having the thought but I’ll admit I had it. My next thought was “if a water trough is all it takes to make Jason happy I should consider myself lucky. He could have picked something a lot more expensive and high maintenance . . . like a horse.”

Happy Memorial Day to everyone. It looks like Jason may be spending his hanging out in a water trough!
