Short chores here, coffee at the crossroads, and Wayne replaced the old distributor module with a new one before noon. Checking with an under the weather Frieda, just before lunch, she’s getting her exercise, dragon breathing into/onto some stubborn wood in heating stove to get it to take off burning. (grin) And, then asked her about lunch?
Remembering my Boy Scout survival training. I immediately exited a warm household for the cooler outdoor elements after I was allowed to eat a lunch rather than wear it.
Already in an established stride, I moved quickly enough outdoors all afternoon the snow pilling up on my shoulders and hat never quite reached an inch total in depth. Picked up all my drying lumber stacking sticker materials deciding to cut them as I need them later. I even loaded though the chilling winds out of the east. Might even been the same winds we had already soaked out of them what heat they had brought us. Then, them ingrate easterners have turned them and blown them back to us. And, I thought us Midwesterners had been kindly enough to have sent them some of those cooler breezes they’ll be thankful for next July.
Regardless the weather, my Ladies pretending to looking cold, were near hunkered down along the Eastern barnyard boundary. Taking pity, I delivered into their midst one of their favorites, a six year old second cutting alfalfa bail. Didn’t take long for the mob to break it open. Then mustering courage I came back into the house to dry and/or exchange some soggy gloves for drier ones. The atmosphere feeling cozy, safe, and allowed I stayed.
Evening not quite here, I am still going to call it a day.
So let it be a good evening may everyone enjoy.
