Another Day Off The Grid......

It's another gorgeous sunny day, but we're having high winds again. I just ran out to the pump house and turned off the wind turbine. It was starting to rotate up and back and they've told us when it does that to go ahead and put the brake on.

We've had such a mild January and February and now some of our plants and fruit trees are starting to get tiny leaves.

The Mexican Primrose is already starting to green up.

Even the fruit trees think it's spring!

But, I know better and went and stocked up on pellets yesterday for our wood stove! Actually, there's a chance of a snowstorm coming in sometime next week. Let's hope it heads another direction.

We also stocked up on 15 gallons of diesel for the generator, so we're ready for whatever comes our way.

Thanks so much for visiting today and now I'll get back to making some socks.

If you're wondering where Mac is today, he didn't receive any questions, so I told him that he couldn't blog today!

Have a great weekend and I'll be sharing some new sock photos soon.

Sorry Mac didn't receive any questions; I would have ask one just so he wouldn't be disappointed. It feels like a little bit of spring on this side of the country too, but like you I know better. My guys will be chopping wood for the stove as we went thru more than usual this year. Have a great weekend.

Poor Mac,
I hope he's not pouting!

Keep safe. We've been snowed in for a couple of weeks; but the snow should start melting today.

I am sorry too. I plan to start learning to knit again soon so I am sure I will have questions in the past.

Poor Mac, he is being punished because none of his followers had any questions last week. Maybe we can come up with some questions this week for him.

I'm enjoying your blog, Mac, Doris, and even Otto, too. Those mini purses you designed are super, love the design!
