Could this be part of why I can't get anything done!!! The ceiling fan simply had to be cleaned before the family comes at Christmas. Heavy dust on the blades were beginning to wear on the motor! :) As soon as I opened the ladder, Bickett claimed it...daring me to climb up!
How in the world all you folks with these great blogs, adding an interesting post every day, do it, is beyond me!!! How have you done the Christmas shopping, put up lovely trees and decorations, made cookies to deliver, and batches of fudge to share, all the while caring for farms and animals and driving back and forth to work in several feet of snow! I admire you all!
Now "me", retired since 1999. My children grown and living in other towns. Our cabin is not quite 1200 square feet. I cook, clean, and wash clothes for only the two of us. Now I do rake 5 acres of leaves, on my own, mind you! :) I got more done when I worked 8 hours a day in the city, and was on the road 3 hours a day!!!
(our first winter in the cabin)
However, the Christmas shopping is not finished. None of the baking is done. Four Christmas cards were written last night, two cards were ripped up and thrown in the trash. One thing I accomplished just this morning...a sheet of notebook paper filled, listing all that needs to be done before Christmas! Whew! Thank goodness that's done!
Hanging out waiting for me to pop the top on another can of "Fancy Feast"...always, before I can put a load of clothes in to wash!
It is surprising how fast the baby Guineas have grown. I never thought they would survive being hatched this time of the year. Of course, that heat lamp burns day and night over their feed bowl and I have boards and pieces of tin enclosing one corner of the old dog lot they are in. Only one of the babies is still not growing. I've never seen anything like it. It eats and drinks, but doesn't grow.
See the tiny one in front?
Thank you for stopping by. I best get busy as I plan to mark off a few things on that notebook paper today!!!
