Once Christmas is over I can hardly wait to put it all behind me. Half a day! That's how long it has taken to put away all the ornaments and stuff! Three days left before the new year will be here! 2014! That sounds good to me!
January is for thinking about spring and looking at gardening catalogs. Then for me, February is a hard month to get through. I'm tired of being inside. I long to see new leaves opening on the trees and violets in bloom.
Yesterday, I cleaned out the goat's tiny barn...swept it nice and clean and added fresh hay...
They seem to enjoy the warm sun and clean floor. I would love to have a real barn some day, with a loft, and the loft filled with sweet smelling hay. I would love to have a larger fenced-in area. Room for two donkeys. Yep, that's what I want.
I remember the barn at my Grandma's house. Their house was on one side of the dirt road and the barn was on the other side. It was a huge barn. An opening went right through the middle of the barn. A wide enough opening for the mules to pull the wagon through, I suppose. Then there were stalls on either side of the barn and a loft above.
The sunshine has been nice again today but rain is in the forecast for tomorrow. Maybe as much as two inches and maybe even a thunderstorm!
Oh well, enough daydreaming for today. I still have housework to finish and clothes to fold. Thank you staying this long. :)
