Bit by Bit

I'm organizing. It's going slow. But I'm making progress. 


All the brooms, dustmops, mops, dustpans, and so on are hung at the bottom of the basement stairs. I know where they are if I really want to use them. 

Since spring has sprung I have also moved the cat balls and cat food and water to the basement. That also means I can lock the cats down when Tim comes over.  

I was busy this weekend too. I pruned the hydrangeas, picked up about 4 bucketfuls of trash from the yard and gardens. Reworked the watering a buckets in the barn. Fixed the waterer in the goat yard. Shoveled and swept the sidewalks-still have to do something about drainage, but we are making a plan for that.  

Phew!



Little Farmers

Seen yesterday around the farm:


Over here goats, you're supposed to meet me on the rock!


My goat wants a ride too!

Later in the day we took a buggy ride around to check on the daffodils coming up.

This thing is awesome!

I've been researching cordless vacs for a while. I knew this one would be great, but was really agonizing over the price.  


Now that I've gotten it home and charged I'm glad I bit the bullet. This thing is fantastic. The first time I used it I completely filled the canister before I realized it. Even with a full canister the thing was still sucking like my big Dyson! I dumped the canister and kept going.  

 I have it hung inside the basement door. Easy to get to.  It does floors. It does throw rugs. Dust bunnies on the stairs are no more. The attachment with the brush head gets fan blades, log house cracks, and around the beams and wood trim of this house. My big Dyson is sitting in a closet lonely waiting for big cleaning jobs.
