Julie has done her best to cure me of deleting posts after they're up, or that last one would be gone. None of it was particularly earthshaking, but I just don't usually post about issues, and there's not really any reason for me to because I'm hardly an expert about any of it.
Whatever. I was unusually busy yesterday, so never had a chance to think about it much, and by now most of you have read it, so what the hell. No point in deleting.
It has "warmed up" here-- yesterday we made it all the way up to the mid-twenties. Since that is about forty degrees warmer than our lows over the weekend, I assumed that it would feel warm and went running around yesterday afternoon without a jacket. But you know, 26 is still chilly and I had to scrounge around in the back of my car, luckily discovering a windbreaker that's been there since August.
We added a foot of snow Monday and Tuesday. The chickens are fine, but Sadie is going through withdrawal from not being able to fetch-- she can't find her tennis ball in the snow. It has surprised us both how far a tennis ball can tunnel from the place where it entered the snow. Sometimes I can't find it either.
Sooooo... that's all I can think of. Hope you are staying calm and carrying on in the midst of the holiday rush.
