Working in the Coal Mine...........

Sunday, January 03, 2010

Today we slept in until 9 A.M. I then made brunch while we watched The Sopranos. We didn't have satellite TV until the latter part of last year so we have enjoyed discovering shows like this. It is one of our favorites.

After brunch my son and I started cleaning the 6 pet cages. My husband baby-sat the chinchillas who needed distracted while their cages were cleaned.

When we finished I did my outdoor chores and then my son and I vacuumed. We cleaned the bathroom too.

Then hubby and I went for a long walk. The dead deer carcass is almost down to hair and bones now and is in the middle of the road. The ground is crunchy from the cold and has a sifting of snow. It was around 20 degrees and the pond is frozen solid. My husband slid around on the ice while I sat in the swing. We saw one deer, several squirrels, and a lot of birds at our feeder.

After we returned my son and I fixed supper, cleaned up the kitchen, and loaded the dishwasher.

We are now working on 5 loads of laundry. I am watching the Food Network in between loads.

Long day - lol.

    You seem to live in a whole different world than I and it really seems like a fulfilling place! I am a web designer so I live on the internet and it is not to warm and fuzzy that is for sure...

    You have a fantastic life - full of warmth and family how wonderful! emoticon

    Reading your blog has me wishing I could move out of town. It sounds so peaceful and relaxing where you live. We spent the last two weekends at our daughter's home in the mountains and it was very quiet and peaceful even with the two dogs, two cats and our 2 year old grandson. Everyone slept in and DGS and I would curl up on the couch and watch one of the Ice Age movies while the ground blizzards raged outside. Heaven on earth!

    It sounds like you live in a winter wonderland?

    I'm glad you can enjoy walking in the cold. It's like in the 40's here in FL & I don't walk outside. I head to the mall and that is getting old. Waiting patiently, or not so patiently for warm weather to return..

    Happy Evening and a great Monday

    Your blogs always sound as if you're living closer to the earth, pioneer style, than the rest of us! How many people can watch the progress of a deer carcass's decomposition?

    Other than the Food Network, of course. I'm watchin' the same show. Poor Emeril is sweating!

    ... I first got cable tv in 2006, now I have the DISH and I am loving all of the programs like the "Food Network"... I haven't seen the Soprano's yet... I think they came on one of the channels last year, but I want to see it from the beginning, I think that I would like the program from what I have seen so far...

    ... I am glad that you were able to get out a take a long walk... sounds very peaceful where you live... I love being around nature... I too have a bird bath and feeder in my backyard, but my back porch is cold and I don't watch from the back window until spring... I put suet cakes and wild birdseed out and I love to see the cardinals and the wood peckers...

    Well you have had a busy day today, but got a lot done!... Enjoy the rest of your evening... Thanks for sharing your day!... Have a great week...
