17 Pounds of Food

DH empty our food bucket that weight 17 pounds. The ground here was very wet yesterday and today it is very hard because our temperature is in the single digit. DH covered the rotting food with turf to keep the wild animals from eating it. We really don't mind then eating it but we figure that they will keep coming back when our garden is done in the spring. They might ruin our garden or worst eat everything we are going to grow there.

Hopefully with the cold weather they will not smell it. We probably have to dig a trench again to keep the water running in our garden. We don't know where the end will land but hoping away from the garden.

I am getting cold sitting in front of my pc right now. I think it's time to put a second pair of socks just about now. Tomorrow I am thinking about using our above ground pool to ice skate. What do your think? I think we might brake it with our ice skate and have a big block of ice in the backyard until spring. That would be so funny.

I think it sounds excellent to be able to skate in your own back yard...we have had snow which has now melted but nothing frozen over that we could skate on...and I do love to skate!!!

We also have a little lake about 2 minutes drive from our house. Darling daughter always ask if she can go and skate there. Maybe we will try that first before our swimming pool. Even if the pool is above ground, they are very fond of it in the summer days.

BTW, thanks for stopping by T.
