Hoover and I are really on low mileage this winter. This morning it was about twenty degrees so we went out to the highway only to find it very icy due to the warm temperatures yesterday that had melted some of our snow. We ran on the shoulder off the ice a little but there was a brisk breeze that was freezing my cheeks so we didn't stay out too long. This photo shows you what our dirt road is like:
Some of you know that I am an avid composter. Some of my co-workers probably think of me as the nut-job who hauls the coffee grounds home every day and who scolds them (politely I hope) when I catch them tossing a banana peel in the trash. I noticed today that the pile has sunk somewhat so took the thermometer out - it read about seventy degrees. This thermometer does not have a very long probe on it, only about four inches so I would suspect it is much warmer lower down. Pretty neat - at least I think so!

So that is February. I probably won't have a post again until March and then we will really be thinking about spring and the garden and goat kids coming - Yeah!!. Until then, be well friends!
