Recycled Barn Wood ~ Recycled Pillows
. . . time and patience.
I snapped this photo yesterday too. We are taking bets on when this end of the big barn will collapse. It's already falling down more since the last time we worked on it. The plan is to remove a sliding door and recycle it. The more people ask for the wood, the more we find reasons to keep it, and use it.
It was also time to replace a few bed pillows. I recycled two things for the barn cats. I know they say do not use anything that can get wet, but I did. I covered the old pillows with old t-shirts, and put them under the stairs in the barn. The cats will have a nice warm place to sleep at night.
I stole a few moments on the porch, although it was cold. A nice hot cup of java and a blanket is all I needed.
We have another pile of brush to take care of, so in between house and animal chores, I'll be working on that while Hubby is at work. Then just maybe we'll get back to working on the big barn.
The trees are put on hold until school is out for Christmas. I don't like this plan, but it is the smart choice. Darkness sets here just after 5pm, and we have little time to work during the week. The school uses our driveway, so we need to knock it down when we have more than one day to cut it all up and clean it up. It will fall directly over the driveway.
Today, I have no idea what the menu plan is. I guess I better sit down and do that. We have very little leftovers since I scaled down the Thanksgiving dinner.
