After I let some steam off by writing, I went to run some errands. Car gas tank was empty, orange warning light on.
But I had enough to exchange some hardware at the co-op store and in return I got two salt block holders - with salt blocks - for the horse's stalls, the last bag in stock of cracked corn for the chickens, three bags of flock food... and they gave me a free bag because it has been torn open and taped shut (clumsy shipment).
With the hardware credit it cost me $1.68 :-D
Then on my way to the grocery store I hit green lights all the way AND scored the best parking spot near the exit door.
My favorite cookies were on sale :-D
The hens laid more eggs today than they had the past three weeks, the sun came out and warmed everything up, Big Daddy was game for a nice cuddle and our long-lost contractor stopped by for a visit on his way home, we hadn't seen him in ages -
Life balances out.
