We drove to town and parked the car. We shopped at locally owned stores and even sipped a hot coffee at a popular (also locally owned, by someone who I graduated from high school with) coffee house/used book store. I was tempted to come home with a book, but knew I better get home to read the ones I already have.
After picking up chicken feed, and other necessities, we retreated to the front porch. Ahhh, porch time. What a blessing it was. Fun day, and ended fun. Hubby beat me at two games of cards too.
Of course the chicken coop remains un-mucked, ha ha. We'll be doing that today. It's colder today, so it's a restock of firewood today also.
Well, just about 4-5 hours ago, we had a visitor. A suspicious vehicle revving around, and next to, our property lines. Keep in mind, we have fields across and next to us, so any vehicle at 4am is up to no good, or has intentions of some sort. When the vehicle stopped alongside our north property line, Hubby took the initiative to go out there. When the vehicle left, it drove to the neighbor's house who runs that nuisance business. Looks like we'll need more surveillance.
