I found out yesterday that my homestead chores are a mystery to the rest of my family, who I love dearly.

I was woman down with the nasty cold going around (fever, chills, severe headache, body aches, my eyeballs even hurt) and spent the day in bed, literally.

I woke up this morning feeling much better but still weak.

Things that feel through the cracks:
*feeding the chickens
*collecting eggs
*brewed tea was forgotten and is now 3 days strength – going to toss that
*produce brought home was left on the counter – now going to the hens

Things that happened without me:
*7 bare root trees were planted
* 4 bare root berries planted
* fence line graded and anchor posts set
* pigs relocated to allow fence work
* my family went out to dinner

Almost a fair trade!
