Ice Challenges

27 Feb

I will say the ice adds challenges to doing chores.  Everything is more difficult (including not getting knocked down by the dog).

One that that is really more challenging is letting the birds in and out.

My door freezes shut.  Even when I think I have the mud and muck scooped away, the ground swells when it freezes, and it’s a challenge.

They’ve been frozen in a couple of days, and I’m afraid my door isn’t going to make it through the winter/spring.

Mud Season

“It’s not my fault.”

The geese love it since they are waterfowl.

It’s not so good for my kitchen floor.

I suppose I might have it clean again by May.

But I reallly need to do something with this hill.  I’ve started feeding some hay out there, and you can see a bit of grass has already sprouted with just these few warm days.

I need to haul a lot of that loose hay from the floor of the barn and spread all around, but I just don’t know when I can find the time to do it.
