Hay Day and a "to-do" List ~ Porch Prep
The truck is back from repairs and in tip top shape now. That's good, because we may need to pick up wood soon. Another tree was offered to us.
What else was on the "to-do" list?
The chickens were not happy yesterday. The sun did not shine, and mean ol' me made them go outside to give the coop a good cleaning. It was cold and cloudy. I think it was about 29°F around 2pm.
As soon as the blueberry/whole wheat/applesauce (made with homemade applesauce) muffins came out of the oven, I went out and let the chickens back inside to warm up. But figured since I was already suited up, I'd bring more wood up to the house. Snow was expected. And snow eventually arrived. The kids were right about "we always get snow the last week of March."
Once back inside, I remembered I had a package to mail to Son. This time I included homemade hot chocolate. When I got back from the post office, the minute I walked in, the washer beeped. It was a typical busy work day.
Brr! Who ordered this cold weather anyway?
Porch preparation! A new pillow for my front porch rocker.
