A Day On The Homestead

First thing about today is that it is a cold winter day, much like we have in February.The was 42 F / 5 C with a light wind and full sun. I got the Christmas tree decorations out of the shed. Next I had to make sure the dogs had a full doghouse of pine straw, so I walked to the woods and brought in, walked, 4 five buckets of pine straw to the doghouse. Today is a good day to plant or replant so I set out three Maple trees, I think they are red maples. Thanks to @CarolDM for the reminder, since she planted trees too. I walked my 15 laps (60 city blocks) and my cheeks were so cold. I picked enough turnips and greens to fill that 5 gallon bucket I used for the pine straw. Now its just before dark, 4:25, and I am sitting resting. I check my blood sugar and it was a normal 86. Its nice and warm inside, I will cook dinner and decorate the tree. How was your day?

How do you keep track of how many laps you've done? I'd lose count.

Each time I pass the beginning corner, I say the lap number.

@andriaperry That wouldn't work for me. I'd forget and start wondering whether I said 12 or 13.

Sounds like a busy, but still a good day (at least I hope)! And that's a good blood sugar :) I am so glad when mine are in that range! Hope you have a good dinner, and a nice evening in the warmth.

I like busy, plus I am way behind of the upkeep of this place. Thanks, I did and will write about it.

@andriaperry Well that is good that you like busy! I understand, my place gets that way though because I don't like busy lol. And that's good, I'll check that out when you do :)

...and to think it isn't even winter yet for a couple more weeks. We had an inch or so of snow on the ground when I woke up this morning, but it melted off by this afternoon. Me 'n Scar are having serious window issues, he thinks they need to be open, I think he's full of sh*t, I told him I'll open one in the spare bedroom, he wants one open in MY bedroom, and he won't shut up about it.

You will have to put your foot down! For leverage to open the window.
