I had to make a trip to the "Big City" to fetch not only the overcast hot pads, but a set of soft violet too. She didn't want either set, so they are up over on my farm shop blog.
With that said, a trip to town cuts all my work/play time out of the day. I literally had time to feed the chickens before dinner, and get the mail. There is no stove to stoke. Hubby worked until midnight last night - no wood cut.
Last night I wasn't feeling all that great either. I woke up to a scratchy throat. I sipped some hot ginger tea with honey and downed some sage tincture for my throat. I was feeling off too, so I didn't even wash the dinner dishes.
Well, I can say we are glad we haven't built the dog fencing yet. We now know his capabilities as far as sailing over a gate. We've moved the stairway gate up halfway to the top (the steps turn halfway up). Now he cannot sail over that one and get upstairs and get into anything. We'll need a tall dog fence for this guy. He has some powerful legs.
