Tripp weighed in at 44 lbs this week and is now slightly taller than Cullen. Kathryn started taking him on her long runs and he is doing fine.
The three days following Thanksgiving were unbelievably warm. Temperatures in the mid-50s and low 60s. The days dawned sunny and clear. On Sunday morning two deer grazed below the pond as the sun came up.
Saturday we had a cookout and saw an ermine that was living in our wood pile.
Saturday I picked up our lawn mower and managed to mulch leaves and mow the lawn.
I got multiple coats of waterproofing on the pine stair in the garage leading to the camping room.
I managed to open up the deck on the south side of the house for the dog to use in bad weather. We had to close off some potential escape avenues.
Last week my tractor blew hydraulic fluid all over. It took 3+ gallons to get a minimum reading, but at least my power steering is back. I put the double link chains on – always a heavy chore.
