Refilling the larder
1. a room or place where food is kept; pantry.
2. a supply of food.
1275–1325; ME < AF; OF lardier.
Bad feeling: Hay is getting low:
The pallets have been swept clean and not much remains:
Happy feeling: Hay truck has arrived and supplies are being replenished:
We received two tons of Timothy hay delivered this morning:
Ahhhh...this made me such a happy gal:
The two greenish bales to the left of the aisle are what remains from my November hay delivery. Behind that is the straw. Looks like I'll be needing more straw soon:
Who can resist climbing to the top of their new hay stack? Not me:
Look! From way up here, I could change the fluorescent bulb if I needed to:
Kai just thought this was one of the best days ever:
...for she much prefers to sample hay from various bales:
rather than just dine from one, every day, dinner tub:
It tastes better this way, you know:
I've said it before, but it bears repeating: I ♥love♥ hay day.
There are few feelings better for me than restocking the barn with enough food that, no matter what happens, I'll have enough to keep the animals fed and happy.
Hey - to all my blogging friends suffering through this horrible snow and ice storm across 30 of our 50 states.... please take care, stay warm, and I hope this passes for you really quickly!
