The weather has been frightfully cold and the chores are taking a much longer time with extra insurances to put straw down for the animals. Still, some chickens and ducks have frozen feet and will have to be slaughtered so they do not suffer. The sheep are well insulated and do better, but the goats and llamas shiver and hide in their barns. Tonight it is minus 27 currently, brrrrr.
Plus, the septic froze at the Inn, so the plumber had to be brought out. A temporary solution is in place and in the summer the whole system will be carefully looked at to ensure that the problem does not persist.
There was a full house at the Inn last week for a few days and for the next two weeks as well, it will be very busy. The foks staying are theatre artists and will be excpecting bagged lunches and suppers, plus the super delicious complimentary breakfasts, too. I will just have time to do the chores and the rest of the day will be consumed with tending to the hospiality business, Moose Hills Inn. I am looking forward to the theatre troupe and their lively conversations.
So, please forgive the missed blogs in the past few days. Hopefully, I will have the time to write some thoughts down in the coming two weeks, at least, I plan to.
