For the first time since sometime in November, and not a moment too soon.
If you want a well-insulated structure, get it done by a builder from Minnesota or Anchorage or somewhere in Siberia, and then don’t argue with him. If you disagree about what’s necessary for proper insulation, it only means you’re wrong.
On the other hand, when you’re a desert hermit who basically doesn’t bathe all that much during the winter, sealing up your new bedroom addition like a cleanroom means that after a while it’s gonna get funky like an actual animal lair. Curiously, when the Lair was just one room with a loft I didn’t have this problem.
The Lair airs right out when I can open the windows, which I have just now done for the first time since sometime in November, I think.
Busy morning, in a good way. Got the sheets changed, blankets aired, bread baked.
The weather forecast may be wrong, but it’s encouraging. I’ll still be using a water bowl for the hens in the Fortress of Attitude because their water still freezes overnight. But the Big Chickenhouse stays warmer, so I can resume use of their waterer.
You want to see something funny? This happened at the cattle watering station yesterday evening…
So here’s this yearling Muley, just slightly more than a spike. Apparently all alone. Minding his business, officer, not bothering anybody.
