|The ducks didn't mind but the chickens hung back.|
|The pigs? As long as food is part of the deal they're in.|
After eating they headed back to their cozy straw beds.
|Goats and snow don't mix so that was a "no way."|
|Cats go out on an "as necessary" basis only.|
Except for going out to keep hay feeders full and water buckets ice-free, Dan and I used the day for indoor projects. For me it was making bone broth, baking bread, and knitting a baby goat sweater.
|One of my snowy day projects was making bone broth from|
all the chicken bones I've been saving. To each gallon of water
I add 2 tbsp vinegar to dissolve the minerals from the bones.
|While keeping the fire stoked and the pot simmering I knitted.|
This is one baby goat sweater out of 4 or 5. More on those here.
Dan worked in the dining room on the windows.
|Dan filled insulated under the window with both batting (left)|
and foam. The foam is very dense and doesn't allow air through.
|The first step was to install new receptacles, the second was to cover|
the gap in the wall.We decided to incorporate that into the overall
window trim. Once the whole thing is painted, who'll be the wiser?
|We were glad for the progress, but still have a way to go.|
We're gradually melting out from under of all the snow, leaving a huge wading pool between the house and the critter sheds. I'm glad we didn't get any more! Ice on the trees has meant quite a few falling branches, but at least we didn't lose power.
How was your weekend? Did anyone else get snowed in?
