January brings cleaning my Mom's house out with husband Bob, son Dana, brother Mike and sister-in-law Dale. We are almost done with sorting and moving 84 years of memory's and stuff! Lisa, my brother Steve's wife took pictures of all the rooms before we began. Great idea Lisa.
Benefit from cleaning the barn...
Fun stuff in January I was able to do some crafting. But first, last November I purchased several tons of meadow grass hay. Each bale weighs about 120 pounds, was delivered and stacked in my barn, with my help, for the price of $6.00 per bale!! This is wonderful green grasses and a few types of clover at an unheard of price plus delivery! Well as wonderful as this hay is, as my friend Jeannette put it, this hay is not user friendly. The flakes of hay have a way of falling apart as I carried them to the sheep. Hay was everywhere and it was taking many trips to the barn to get enough feed to were it was needed. So necessity being the mother of invention gave me the idea to make a hay holder. I'm sure I'm not the first to come up with this idea but I did use the things I have around the barn
