Spring

February 17th,2011 Glorious Day

What a glorious day! My temp outside is reading almost 60. 60 in February,.,, melt snow melt.
I have been puttering all morning outside. Have moved the 3 adult pigs to Wilburs old pen, maybe they can stay drier. and it will give me a chance to clean up the mess in front of the goat barn.
Ever had them  days ya just wanted to stay home. I do,it is a day to open the windows flush out the old stale air of winter and welcome in the new fresh air, even if tis only for a day or 2. I know this is just a tease for whats to come in April. But could ya hang around a few more days,, I will deal with the teasing.
Got to take the winter sides down on the rabbits and let them enjoy the sun also. The goats and sheep are all basking in the warmth of the sun.
Decided not to bake today and let the fires die down to just a little fire just enough to keep them going. Way to nice to waste wood. My face actually feels sun burnt from shoveling the log pile out.
I do have to go clean the rental house. Be glad when spring gets here and business picks up here. I really do hate leaving my home. The farm will be up and going  in a few months. Seeds have been ordered, chickens have been ordered,.. New chickens and turkeys, guineas hens will be a pleasant addition to the farm. The petting farm will be up and running once the snow goes enough for people to want to come out.
 
Need to find out if Rob plans on tapping any trees this yr, the cost of sugar is terrible, maple syrup and honey will be the sweetener of choice in this house. I would love some bees.
Tonights supper is going to be a summertime favorite, macaroni salad, the ole fashion kind with tuna and , frozen peas,, not the canned things yuck.. If i was going to town I would pick up the stuff for pasta salad but trying to conserve trips to town. Hot dogs and I have a steak out for Rob. Some nice ice tea and a big piece of chocolate cake for dessert.
I suppose I cant put off going to work any longer, would really rather find my way to the sewing machine and make things for sale on the web site.
 
You all have a glorious day and if you have this beautiful sun shine get out side and  just soak some of it up,,it does a body good.
 
God Bless
