Archives for the month of: December, 2014

Tonight the clocks will chime and magically a new year with a bunch of to do about reading time and marking the passing of it with HUGE and TINY celebrations of it.  We are not much into the part scene for New Year’s traditions and this time around our festivities are gonna go like this.

12/31
wake up to frozen water supplies to the campers since the low overnight was in the twenties all night
wait for the thaw to see what failed (fancy way to say find the broken water lines and fixtures)
trip to town with giant list of plumbing parts
complete repairs and make preparation for 2 more night of mighty cold temps

1/1
wake up to frozen everything
spit a pig for a day of roasting and a giant bonfire gets built so we can stand to be outside with the pig and all the folks that said they will come help us eat it!
really really hoping that no additional repairs are needed as the stores will be closed for the Holiday!!

In general I blame Disney for giving “Frozen” such a warm reception and distortion of the word’s definition!

Bring it ON 2015!

hen taste test

 

Once the rains come and the weeds start the hens get fodder delivered.  They cannot free range as the hawks here eat them and the LGD that lives in the pasture with the pigs is not so down with including poultry in her responsibility.  A bit of exercise and yard tending for me, good food for the birds, who then give me eggs. Totally fair trade.
