And the first feelings that spring might actually arrive have been stirring here this week as well. We have had several very warm days (high 40s) and even one night where the mercury barely dropped to freezing. Well packed snow paths to the poultry pens are beginning to soften, which was not so much a good thing for my first attempts on the new knees to help with chores. I did, however, manage to not jar myself badly and even better, to not loose my footing and fall. It has been good that I have been able to help, as the hens are beginning to lay reliably and I am still able to bend sufficiently -- even with knees that are a bit stiff and added height to the ground in the coop from accumulated manure and straw -- to collect eggs. Tractor Guy cannot and when he had to collect, he ends up crawling in the thawing mess. Yuck.
