This week:After a cold and snowy weekend, our weather warmed up a bit and we had three days of nice weather to get ready for this weekend's cold snap. At least we had a break in between. I moved a few more bales of hay from the run-in shed up to the temporary spot where I put it so that it's more convenient. I replaced the ducks' waterer that cracked when the water froze - I hadn't exchanged it yet for the rubber pans that I use in freezing weather, shame on me. But I'm testing out one of those sealing sprays they advertise on TV; I'll let you know if it works.
