April 10th, Celebration of sorts
Wednesday, April 10, 2019
Today Skinner finally decided to quit pouting and came round to share apples and carrots!
Then this PM I noticed that with the winds roaring Don Q decided to check out his little shelter house , now with snow flying he is tucked in out of the weather . So the boys are settling in.
My DIL is so tender hearted, she was worried that Don Q would get upset because his feeding schedule was changed. I tried not to laugh as she expressed sincere concern, I reminded her on days when it is bad or stormy they often did not get fed on a "regular " schedule. They just wanna be fed. Her reply...will they buy him the big carrots and apples like you do? hee hee
This is one of the sweet things about her that touches my heart.
I was starting my Sparking time and waiting for it to get darkish so I could go close up my hens. Then I noticed it is NOT getting dark. Whoops must be snowing..sure enough coming down like any healthy winter blizzard. We have about an inch now and it is still coming down hard. Hmm I just thought the furnace has not come on..guess I better check that pesky pilot light again. Really need to focus on saving up for a new furnace this summer.
I think my toe has finally reached the point where I can return to using the treadmill. If I thought treadmill time was boring..well stationary bike can top it for sure. I did set my bike up in a room with a tv , and can watch "something" while biking, not like being outside on the trail bike though . Another repair that needs doing. Somehow before Jim quit driving he managed to park his truck on top of the bike. I think it just needs a new front wheel and tire. If only I can remember to take it in to the bike shop. I think of it every time I drive past the bike shop..but do not have the bike in the back of the truck..whoops!
So cozy fire blazing , sounds like a good time to fix a cuppa get my book and read away the rest of the day.
Good nite all..
