good morning! as you can see by my header--its freaking cold around here. no trips to the park for ralphie. I venture out to feed and water the chickens and fill the bird feeder and that's about it. the barn with all it's insulation was still about 26 degrees above zero this morning--which is actually pretty good. I have my paint ready, but don't want to work out there until it's a little warmer. we brought the paint up to the house since it's latex--don't want 200 dollars worth of paint to freeze on me!
took eggs up to Phyllis--she was doing her annual inventory today, so I didn't stay and visit. tomorrow dorijane goes for a blood draw to check on her thyroid. rob is thinking thurs and fri he may have to work from home since this awful cold is hanging on and we have lake effect predicted. but he got his new rolling desk done and we found a new office chair and monitor to get him all set up, so his workspace is ready to go.
throwing some clay this afternoon--there is a really neat instructor who has started an online class for beginners--I am not in the group that will video themselves throwing and submit the videos for critique, but anyone can watch the videos and follow along, so that's what I will do. should be fun.
have a lovely day!
