Jade found this bowl in the chicken run and carried around to the house, then sat with it. When I came outside, she picked it up and looked at me. So darn cute!
And that was today on the farm. Whew!
Animals are amazing and I am privileged to live and work with them. I have a laundry sink in the farmhouse porch from which I must get water when the outside faucet is not functioning, as in the past 2 days. The humidity was 92%. When it is cold and humid the frost creeps. That is when it is most difficult and must be watched for frozen lines and pipes, as in when the septic froze last week, ten feet deep. The porch is not heated, but the door to the farmhouse is open, so it is not freezing in there, since that is where the red worm composters live in winter (in their box). I must bring the buckets inside and fill them at the sink, then lift them out and carry them to the toboggan. The sink has a reduced water flow faucet for water saving,and filling takes a while. When wearing all in one insulated coveralls, hat and gloves, it takes only a moment to overheat, so I go stand outside or play ball with Robbie. The time extends the water part of the chores by double. Good luck with the session today and I counted 12.
