An excuse to clean

Caged cat

BenMark and I split the household chores down the middle.  I cook, he does the dishes.  I harvest and weed, he splits wood and mows.

Unfortunately, neither of us is a big fan of cleaning.  So things tend to pile up until we get a special visit from someone like my favorite cousin-in-law.

Ben's visit tempted me to to wash up the futon cover and catch up on laundry.  Is it still spring cleaning if it's nearly fall?

Our chicken waterer keeps the coop clean and dry and provides POOP-free water for your flock.

Hmm, German Bundeswehr field shirt. Reminds me of the similar clothes we had in the Netherlands army. Heavy duty stuff, but the partly woolen underwear was itchy. That was a long time ago, though. :-)

Weird that you could find that in the US.
