What a day! Last night I checked the 10 day forecast on my Weatherbug and it said it’s supposed to get down to 25 degrees Friday night! It was very nice today so my list included:
Feed Chickens – check
Dig potatoes – check – found this monster:
Paint latices – kinda check
Paint front steps – one coat, ran out of paint
Relocate a fence – check, involved cutting down a forest of 6 foot weeds
Had to do this to make room for the hoop house green house I’m putting up at the end of the trailer.
Drive posts for hoop greenhouse – 2 out of 8
Pick Calendula – check
Found this really odd one with little buds all around the main flower. Wish I could have let it go and see all the little blossoms, but it would never make it through 25 degrees 🙁
Bring in all the stuff I had drying out in the shed – check
Bring in the pot of aloe and moss rose that was on the porch – check
Pick all the rest of the patty pan and spaghetti squash – check
Water all the plants – check
Gather eggs – that was sad, only 3. We’ve been having predator problems. I have seen an oposum. I tightened up the hen house and shut them in, but something is still getting the eggs, probably a snake, either that or the poor things are just to traumatized to produce eggs.
Pull weeds and greens for the chickens since I’m keeping them inside – check
Work on re-tagging and categorizing all 648 posts that I transferred over to this blog – 24 done. Please excuse the mess here. It will probably take me all winter to clean it up 🙁
Fill my vitamin planners – almost check. Gotta make more nettle and eggshell capsules
Balance check books – check
Laundry – almost check. Saved the drying for tonight so I could heat the house before bed.
Clean up mini-tramp and bring in – check. I have a very bouncy grandson who keeps jumping on my couch. Hopefully this will curb that problem some 😉
Put up shelves by south window for plants.
Do something with the 2 gallons of milk that were use-by dated today. I bought too much, but who can resist whole milk at $1.89/gallon? – Almost check. Made 3 quarts of yogurt and condensing the rest to can. Might get that done yet tonight 🙂
Vacuuming – NOT
Write a blog post on my new blog – Done 🙂
My grandkids are coming tonight and are going to stay a couple of days 🙂 The Brown one will be a big help, so we will see what we can get done tomorrow 🙂
What have you done today?
God Bless You All!
