Pigs are reported to enjoy each other’s company but these two,Molly and Sheila, are not getting on at all even preferring to sleep in separate quarters.
The good news is that the ice in the blue insulated water trough that froze solid last week melted enough for us to be able to hook out the faulty water heater and jam a new one in.
Yesterday John picked up the snow plough on the way home from the airport and ploughed his way up the lane. A dramatic return. And now I can get my car out again!
Yesterday we received over an inch of rain. Oh. Happy New Year! In America! Sorry, keep forgetting things like that. The social niceties! Anyway we got over an inch -there is so much water in the ground and so little evaporation at this time…
Tomorrow I leave for California – not for long – six days I think – so today John will do all the morning chores by himself so he can ask me any questions.
Well, the porch and everything else is all in a state of rather messy half-done-ed-ness but by lunch today I think we should be all ship shape. The farm that is. My packing is another issue altogether.
Sheila is not as chubby as she looks in this shot – she is long and slim and tall. But certainly slim. This is why she hates photographs – the camera makes her look fat!!
You will remember that the Title Rule is that I must write the first thing that comes into my head and no changes. Well, Monday is the first thing that has come into my head. As in, it is Monday today and I leave…
Mud is the order of the day. Lots of mud. And puddles. Lots of puddles.
Firstly, thank you so much for your incredible outpouring of support yesterday. It means so much to me to hear such care from so many of you.
