Mr. President was late this morning. We had a discussion last week about timeliness. It has not really sunk in. He was 45 minutes late this morning. I know I am getting old now that I lament the youth of today! Luckily for him and I, his greatest asset is his flexibility. I need the help and he is good help.
We had 250# of stock and stable and 250# of wheat for the animals. We ended up pouring them in simultaneously to mix them as we filled the bin in the barn. 500# of grain barely made a dent. I think the bin can hold 2000# of grain, more than enough to get us through a winter. Now I just need to find it on sale and buy a whole winter supply at once. I am on the lookout. I need to cut a metal lid for the turbinator, a metal plate for the 6 inch vent and metal trim to go around the gap in the wood lid. Hopefully, this will keep the mice out of the feed. I think it is totally doable.
We made great progress on the barn roof this morning. I am sure it can be finished in two days. We are going to hit it hard tomorrow and finish up on Tuesday. I really, truly hope this will happen and I can be done with the roof!
