The temperatures slowly rose a little and by afternoon yesterday the air was filed with the steady rhythm of melting ice. Its ting tap tinkle followed us around the farm. Not above freezing yet but close.
The Kiwi builder reluctantly returned from his annual holiday in Florida full of ideas. He is determined to get the Coupe up and enclosed in the next few weeks. Maybe I should buy his some thermal tights as well.
This shot will always be taken from inside the house so you can watch The Coupe rise. If it thaws a little more today I shall go out and clean this window. Did you see that smudge? No cleaning windows when it is below freezing. The water immediately freezes to the pane. I learnt this the hard way when I first moved here (about 6 years ago now)and we had to stare at a big spray of frozen window cleaner on the kitchen windows for about a month. I will not even mention flicking the spray and wipers to clean the windscreen while I was driving one freezing morning. The faster we forget that incident the better.
This shot is for Tommy G. Frozen fuel lines. Red truck going nowhere yesterday.
Mama was being especially friendly trying to convince me that she had had enough sun thank you and could they all go back inside now please. She kept walking over to me and then back to the gate. Over and back in her ploddy foot dragging way. Have you ever noticed that sheep drag their feet? Her message was clear.
Good morning darlinks. My long silky underwear is working very well. I was surprised at how light and, well, silky they are. So light that I can rinse them out in the evening and dry them by the fire ready for the next days wearing.
I have been reminded by a few of our newer readers ( WELCOME. ) that Camera House and I need to do another walkabout so that everyone is up to date on names and pertinent facts. So today I shall attempt to get a shot of everyone. The weather man, bless him, says that it is going to be a little warmer today and maybe even longer spells of sun, I hope, so my objective in not unreasonable.
Have a lovely lovely day.
