What a beautiful day!

Christmas day has been pretty uneventful for us as expected. Besides the occasional phone calls and text messages from well wishers, we have had a relatively relaxing day. We have been indoors all day working on storing things in the attic and shredding more paper and junk mail we have laying around. All these bags of shred will either go in the new coops or in the compost bin.

The skies are sunny and the humidity is low so the ground continues to dry up. I pray it only dries to the point where we can work the soil and get other things done that are impossible with the wet ground.

I ordered lots of seeds from Johnny's and we should be set for the spring. My bell peppers and jalapeno's have now spouted and there will be more than we'll use.

I told my husband that at some point in the next few weeks we should move cinder blocks closer to the house and use old wood frame windows I acquired a couple of years ago to create cold frames. By then I will have everything re-potted and will fill them up quickly with garden plants.

This is a long weekend for me as is the next. The forecast calls for delightful weather so I should be able to catch up on many tasks outdoors without freezing my ears off...!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
