Snow in the winter. It’s a given in Iowa. It can start as early as October and can last until April. Snow days are built into the school calendar and four-wheel drive in your car or truck is a good thing to have.
Ever watched Mad Men? Lila observed this type of behavior in 1985.
It’s dark when you get up in the morning. It’s dark when you come home from work. Winter darkness. It creeps up on you.
Hey, it’s January. If I have a hankering (who in the heck says that?) for fresh produce that I have to buy at a store, I use a homemade produce cleaner. It’s super easy and lots cheaper than a store-bought version.
I have to profess my love. I love our chickens. We started raising chickens when my oldest daughter, now thirty-one, was in the fourth grade. She brought home her class project and we didn’t have a place to put it. So we built a small chicken house. A one thousand dollar chicken house for a $1.50 chicken. That turned out to be a rooster.
I’m not kidding.
