A whole day late with our blog this week as I completely forgot about it until early in the evening. Most of what happened here the past week was the established routine of cutting firewood, burning it, watering chickens and ducks, horses and sometimes cows, feeding chickens, a second time feeding and watering the chickens and ducks and sometimes a third time too when we close them up for the night, and, each time in to the hen house, we gather eggs. A welcome break from the routine was that we did some Christmas visiting and a Grandchildren’s Christmas concert plus a classical music concert in Simcoe. Twice as per every week , we did our egg delivery route. Evenings have been very busy.
Chicken and duck hut construction continues at a much reduced pace as little time was available for that this past week. The weather has been, as you are likely fully aware , unless you are in a tropical paradise somewhere, mostly very nice. Especially as regards the temperature. Two nights were below freezing and some water hoses and taps were frozen because we forgot to drain them. Nice warmish weather is returning for the next while so that will make our lives easier. There will be some rain and of course mud goes along with that but so far this year our laneway has been passable.
