Heavy winter coats are finally going into storage.
Yesterday was absolutely wonderful outside. I filled my clothesline.
I brought a few pots to the porch.
I brought a few wooden chairs to the porch to prime. I took the cupboard piece to the porch to prime.
I cleaned a few very dirty windows.
The goats were all out basking in the sunshine.
All the while, I breathed in the spring air, and listened to the goats, chickens and birds. It was very peaceful outside, and so much, that I opened some windows.
Then it happened.
Spring left us.
Windows were closed.
I wasn't even noon yet. The sun disappeared, the clouds rolled in, the drizzle started, and the temperature dropped. And it stayed that way the rest of the day. We once again fired up the wood stove.
I ended up warming up with a cup of homemade hot chocolate.
I walked the dogs for the first time since the tundra melted and dried up a bit, but I had to wear my muck boots. Brrr!
The cupboard piece was brought inside and primed.
I decided (because you know how I like to torture myself with five projects at once), since I finished another kitchen chair cushion, I'd work up a placemat to match them (and to check color combinations). I was waiting for Hubby to get back with truck parts anyway, and bottle feeding was soon. Oh, the bottle feeding......trying to get all my chores and that done is a "hair-puller."
I'm told the weather will warm up to the 70's towards the weekend. I've got more porch prep on the to-do list, if it does - sweep down spider webs, wash down siding, prime chairs and start painting them, etc. I am just trying to get all the non-garden chores finished before that starts up.
