06:40, 47F, very foggy again. some stars showing. rooster quiet. dogs barking. oatmeal for
breakfast.
low tide at CK, low 60's, slight breeze from SE, partly cloudy. usual birds. bought oysters. got card from daughter! tide coming in when I left at 10:40. buffle-heads swimming by causeway.
back at the farm, fried up a bunch of oysters for lunch. tasty! then went out and put a new fence around the garden that the rams got back into this a.m. hoping to salvage the turnips and the bok choi. cleaned up the debris and gave it to the chickens. got 8 eggs. found a hidden nest. put new hay in the laying boxes.
a hard freeze is predicted for the beginning of the week so I have work to do - clean out fireplace, bring some plants inside, put wool bags in dog pen ... and continue moving fire wood from wood lot into the barn. was hoping for a mild winter. oh well - it is january. and I did enjoy autumn.
15:30, mostly cloudy, 69F, calm. new garden fence seems to be working. stole it from the bananas but they'll be toast by tuesday.. got email from daughter! she's in barcelona eating grapes.
20:00, 61F, clear, calm. hoppin' john for supper.
stars out. jupiter tagging after waxing gibbous moon by a hand's breadth. venus lovely in the west.
glad to have tomorrow off!

Sorry about the coming freeze. It's going to be close here. I still have hope. & the rams in the garden. I found Buster (miniature horse) in my garden last night. He appeared to be just eating the grassy spots & weeds around the buckets..there was a strong smell of onions in the air..so could be missing some. He ended up climbing up in the middle of my sweet potato patch when I went to get him out. Neighbor gave me 4' picket fence I need to put up & get painted.
