You would think that, given I rise before dawn, I would have loads of time to get things done. Tain't so. I end up getting involved in one project or another then have to dash around. This morning I had to deal with our overnight frost - yes, isn't that special? - and had to make sure the meaties were warm enough. I have two brooder heaters in their pen, plus a light, but they are growing so fast that they can barely wedge in under the heaters. I had put a solid cover over most of the top, so they managed to stay warm. Looking ahead, it seems we have one more chilly night before things get more normal. Whatever normal now is. ABnormal.
Then there was the unwrapping and uncovering of all the tender plants. Then the filling of the watering dishes. Yadda. But the sun was up and shining and there was a light breeze. Birds were singing and I was feeling pretty darn good. Until I went in the house and realized I had fifteen minutes to finish chores, take a shower, get duded up and leave for work.
I was not entirely suprised, then, when I arrived at work looking like I had dressed in the dark and put my hair in a blender.
