We definitely got a mixed bag of crap today! First it started off raining and then it turned to everything between snow and rain....but the worst of the story is that it is now freezing into a sheet of shiny, wet glaze ice. We will have to deal with that tomorrow, because for now, we’re settled in with the pellet stove pumping out that precious wood stove heat. The TV is going to get a workout right after getting in and out of the hot tub...and I might just arrange the pastels and paint a little before TV. Thanks to our friend Charlie, down the road...I had Arctic cleats to put on which allowed me to walk safely to the barn to feed and water this evening. I rode the John Deere from the big barn to the small barn...again, thanks to the cleated chains I bought and made for the garden tractor. Having the chains on it allows us to keep using it all winter long, keeping the battery charged and the motor operating. Once I plow walkways to the barns, the John Deere fits in the walkways just perfectly. We use it and the little garden trailer to distribute feed from the big barn to the small barn, eliminating the carrying of 50# feed bags like I did last year.
Oh yeah....we have another quiz for you all. Just look at the picture below and tell me what it is. (No vulgar answers please) It is something that many folks use in a kitchen to make something very popular, but it also can be used to make a multitude of other items too. Let’s see if anyone can guess this one in the next day. I will post the answer to what this is on Sunday evening when I post. That gives everyone a full 24 hours to decide on an answer befitting this rising mystery. If you don’t guess it, don’t fret because it’s becoming a bigger and bigger mystery.
We have wood chips and a bunch of feed in the back of the truck, so we don’t have to go anywhere in the next day or so, so we’ll hang tight here and watch TV, paint, sleep or something, but slip slidin’ around out there on the highway isn’t gonna be one of our options anytime soon........
