Home from town

Change boots

Home from the outside world.  First step --- change from going to town shoes to farm boots.  I wonder if all that standing on one leg is the reason Mark's balance is improving?

In the trunk

Next step --- pick out any perishables to be carried in ASAP.  In the winter, even oranges are perishables because they might freeze before morning.  Quite an incentive not to buy too much.

Walking home

Finally --- walk a third of a mile home.  The walk is just as blissful as it looks.  I wouldn't trade our moat for anything.

Our chicken waterer keeps the flock happy while we're visiting the outside world.
