Workin’ in my Winter Underwear

This year’s ode to winter was inspired by frigid weather on our homestead, and stories from homesteading friends. Enjoy “Workin’ in my Winter Underwear” to the tune of “Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland.

Workin' in my Winter Underwear

Workin’ in my Winter Underwear

Snow is fallin’, wind is whistlin’
Scarves are wrapped, beards are bristlin’
The air has a bite,
We’re freezing tonight
Workin’ in my winter underwear

Icy paths, stacked up snowdrifts
Power’s out, rigging makeshifts
A goat of large girth
Is about to give birth
Workin’ in my winter underwear

Early morning shovel out a barn path
Then clear snow heaped on the greenhouse roof
Hauling water daily
‘cause it freezes
And the critters need more food
To be cold-proof

Later on, we’ll perspire
As we chat by the fire
The wood warms you twice
Melting snow and the ice
Workin’ in my winter underwear

Frozen poop is always fun for cleaning
Feels a bit like scooping loads of bricks
The mess is even worse when it starts thawing
‘Cause then it gets all muddy and it sticks

Would you like to save this?

We'll email this post to you, so you can come back to it later!

Car won’t start, roads are closin’
Temps are droppin’, nose is frozen
We laugh and we pray, as we tackle each day
Workin’ in my winter underwear

We laugh and we pray, as we tackle each day
Workin’ in my winter underwear

  1. Spoken like someone who knows exactly how poop is affected by yo-yo-ing temperatures. Great song, now I can’t get it out of my head!
