Started the day as usual, up with the husband, made his lunch, checked to make sure the girls were up and running...signed any forgotten school papers, made sure a good lunch was made, start a load of laundry and a pot of coffee!! Drop Meghan at school; neighbor takes the high school age one and I pick up...what a deal!! Drive back in the driveway, close the gate, feed the chickens, let them out for the day...feed goats...check on temperature of greenhouse...sun is up...might be too hot. Switch some more laundry. Check email..process any orders...off to the great outdoors....today it was off to the bank to make deposits and then off to the Bashaws...discussed some business and then off to processing chickens...it was cold in there today!! I really don't usually mind the cold, but I don't think I will be complaining later this week when the temperatures rise just a little. Finished up just in time to pick up Sierra from school, then Meghan, then back in time to grab a bite to eat and bring in eggs for the day. I cooked a lot this weekend so we would have leftovers this busy week...and then took care of the sprouts, wheat grass and started a few flats for hydroponics and the greenhouse. I am going to add a few basil to the hydroponics operation...would love to provide basil year around along with the head lettuce. Started several herbs too for the new herb garden...need a lot of thyme....hahahah..get it time...okay, maybe I need to get back to farming because I definitely will never make it as a comedian.

Believe it or not I prefer snow around here...especially since we rarely get more than a foot or so. I think we are at about 8 inches now at most, but it is still slowly falling!! It becomes so quiet that you feel like you are wrapped up in a big blanket of white peacful feelings. Of course it is just beautiful and since the sun is peaking out just enough to melt the top of the greenhouse and snowfall has not been that heavy shoveling around the greenhouse was minimal. Taking care of the animals to make sure they had water and food in a secure location actually took a little longer. Sounds like a day to catch up on paperwork...though I will probably wander out to the greenhouse for just a little while...nice and toasty in there. Moonstruck Signing out.
