Up before dawn as usual. Temperature hovering just above zero. Fed cats, put fire in then got my morning coffee. Yesterday was just beautiful. Not a cloud in the clear blue sky and when I looked at the thermometer it was 15 degrees. Can't ask for better than that this time of year.
I finally got to do some more stuff outside yesterday morning. Rolled up the garden hose and now that's put away for the winter. I put the rest of the garden ornaments away, emptied pots and have them stacked ready to store in the greenhouse, raked leaves, not many left on the trees now but loads on the ground. Every time I get leaves raked into a pile, as soon as my back is turned, the chickens kick them all over the place, lol. These nice warm sunny days they spend a lot of time on the deck stretched out basking in the warmth of the sun.
Then some friends dropped by for coffee. After that I pretty well relaxed for the rest of the day as I figured I'd done enough. Getting over this cold nicely now and didn't want to overdo it as I'm apt to do.
