Even though the winter weather is relentless, I plod along pretending spring is coming. However, I did finally wear a rain jacket the other day to walk down the driveway to pick up the big Kindergartner.
I finished building a greenhouse this week from scavenged materials. Old 4X4’s, slimy windows, some railroad ties, and whatever scrap wood that I had laying around. I did have to buy 4 pieces of plastic corrugated roofing though. Not proud of that.
This project took me much longer than I had anticipated, I broke my 4 foot level, and it gave me a concussion. My head is still scabby and bruised from the drill falling from the top of a ladder. I am often reminded about just how dumb I can be. I was feeling pretty proud of myself for figuring out another problem earlier in the week so the universe needed me to be brought back down to reality. The reality where I am dumb enough to give myself a concussion with a battery operated drill.
Luckily, the husband was home so I could rely on him to tell me if I needed stitches for the old brain box. He was useless with that so he took me to the clinic so that a nurse could look instead. No stitches needed but mild concussion. One of the symptoms “to look out for” was surliness. I took liberties with that.
The greenhouse is done now and just needs some shelves and some plants. But for now, it is serving as a birthing suite for my sow Fossey. She is due in 3 days and I am excited to see the little piglets running around.
These pictures are some glamour shots of Fossey (I felt she needed a “me day”).
