Cold weather sure puts a damper in my activity level. I don't go outside as much, therefore I don't seem to get as much accomplished as usual. I haven't had any good projects going lately either. Because I haven't been as active I'm not wearing jeans as often because I'm a bit pudgier and wearing elastic waste pants. Ahhhh, don't you love the excuse for wearing sweat pants in the winter?
Today was near 60 degrees though so I had no excuse not to be outdoors. I cleaned both barns and added the 4 big wagon loads of manure to the greenhouse compost, ie, heater. Because of my lack of conditioning I have a heating pad on my lower back right now. Sheesh, am I getting old or just out of shape? Never mind, I don't need comments on this. I already know the answer.
I started a project this week in our basement. We have a small room that houses 2 giant safes, our on-demand water heater, shelves that held many cans of paint and some other random crap we don't know what to do with. I've ripped out those shelves and piled all the paint cans, "stuff" and the wood shelving all over the basement. It's a real mess.
And here they are after I've torn out most of the shelves.
Here's another picture I thought I'd include which has nothing to do with cheese or my lack of activity. A friend came by with some quail eggs that I thought were really cool. I'd never seen any before. In this picture there are 2 dozen eggs in a carton much smaller than a regular egg carton. They look like Easter candy.
