Farm life/ Where's the cotton

Friday, October 02, 2015

Good morning everyone. A cool one here this morning, only 38, yes 38, and a good thing there was no wind or it would have been darn right cold out. Need to get thinking about moving all the house plants back in the house. But I made a big mistake when I got that 2000 piece puzzle out cause part is on the table that the plant sit on all winter, so will have to think of a plan B, and right now I have no idea. Also need to go to the lumber yard and get some industrial strength plastic to cover the patio door in the first living room where I put the plants. That door has always been so cold that I cover it with clear plastic during the winter. Makes it a lot more comfortable in there.

So far so good with Oliver and Huck, I have cut down a little tiny bit on how much they get to eat cause they tend to over eat and then get diarrhea, so this morning they only got a little over a teaspoon so they were a little unhappy with me, but they will feel better in the long run. Also this morning hubby thought maybe we should let the sheep in pen c, will that means me, cause he is not around them a lot and they run from him.. Now pen 2 and 3 share the same fence as 1 and 2, where they are at, and there is just a gate between them all, and all but 3 came right to the gate knowing that they were about to get new grass, you know sheep are not to high on the intelligent scale so they were right beside the rest but there was a fence, so I had to walk all the way thru all the lots to show them the way, and as soon as they followed me into pen 2 they knew where to go. So Merlin and I had a good walk this morning. But I didn't want those 3 trying to jump the fence and listen to them bleating all day. Now just to remember to let them back in before dark.

Hubby is getting ready to go to the fields again today, and I put him out. lol The other day I made his lunch and sit it outside on the bench cause it was as cool out there as in the frig. and had no room in frig for it, and he came in and asked me if I was putting him outside, and said no, why, and then he said ,well, my lunch is out on the bench, just laughed and said no, just no room in frig, so now he just say I put him out. Lol men have there own way of thinking.

I am not sure what I am going to do to keep me entertained for the day, do need to do some house cleaning, but that can be an everyday thing. Did the bedroom yesterday, when I changed all the bedding, fresh off the cloths line. Boy, did they smell good. Talking about sheets, I am having a problem here. I have bought several sets of sheet, and end up giving them to kids, cause Hubby and I don't like them, they are just so flimsy ,where can you buy sheet with cotton in then for a little stability. These flimsy thing won't even stay on the mattress without tying them to the mattress, and you sleep 1 night and they are so stretched out of shape all you do is sleep on wrinkles, WHERE'S HAS ALL THE COTTON GONE?

Well, you all have a GET day. Linda

    I agree - it's next to impossible to find good sheets nowadays! When I come across some I like, I buy several sets! Sounds like you got good exercise today!

    What a busy lady you are,and you seem to thrive on it. so happy to hear the wee kitties are doing well, lots of TLC as well of nourishment. I had a good laugh over you putting your hubbies meal outside and his response to it, good to share humour.
    When I read your comments about your table that has your jigsaw puzzle on it now you need it for your plants that need to be in warmth,I was thinking I would like to have a table built that will fold up when it is not in use, maybe that is something you could use.
    Have a good day Linda. emoticon

    Glad the kitties are doing well. We have problems with sheets too. My SIL gave me a set like what we slept on at her house, but haven't tried them out yet. She said she got them at Walmart on sale. They are Better Homes and Gardens 700 thread ct, wrinkle resistant, 54% cotton.
    Have a good weekend!

    What a full day! Interesting about the sheep. I'm glad the kittens are doing well. They need a balance with their eating just as much as we do :)

    I bought a set of martha stewart sheets about ten years ago and I still have them.. I cannot remember the thread count, but they are baby blue gingham check and they are my favorite, very flexible, no thin spots..I DO rotate my sheets, ,I have many sets so they do not wear out..
    I have a queen size mattress and they are plenty big for it.. not a pillow top, but has that extra puffy thingie on top.

    I'm sure you can find different grades of cotton sheets online. That not something I would worry about ordering. It's definitely getting a bit chilly, so maybe it's time to haul out the flannel sheets. I'm glad the kittens are doing so well!

    We like our flannel sheets for the winters up here, and they're not flimsy.

    When I change out the sheets next time I will move from cotton blend to the jersery type for more warmth. We are cold here also and the next week doesn't look warmer.
    I also have covered windows and sliding doors with that heavy duty plastic. Keep warm and have a GET day. emoticon

    I enjoyed reading your blog. I love animals and got a kick looking at your beautiful dogs. Sheets for me have always been an issue too. The best sheets I have bought were from Belk, the Biltmore brand. We have a king bed and they are oversized, feel soft, and wash great (limited wrinkles). Too funny re: husband's lunch. Have a wonderful day!

    I know this morning went down to 40 here and I didn't want to get out from under the covers. I was so snug and sleeping so well. I decided since is was down to 60 in the house, I should close some windows. I just love the clean fresh air. Don't overwork hubby, and let him come in from time to time! LOL
