Ache All Over

I was so cold last night when I crawled into bed. I thought I was catching something. But I woke up after a good night sleep ready to really work.
This morning I moved all this wood from the barn area up to the porch by 10am.
Dearest worked at cutting up more logs and bringing his pile to the splitter. He had the wheel burrow so I moved all this with my arms, which now are quite sore.
Weatherman said veritable cloudiness today. He was right but it was heavenly when the sun peeked out from time to time. I decided to do the whites today and hang them out. It is 8C ( 47F) outside and windy ( as you can see by the sheet). It started to hail around 10:30am but just for a short spell, and that was it for precipitation.
A different type of daffodil opened their faces today. I now have nine different types opened and smiling.
My rhubarb patch it starting to really grow. It just had needed the rain. I have nine rhubarb plants. I give  a lot of it away!
Farm Art, lined up outside the kitchen door, filled with water for when we have yet another dry spell. Note the little container as well!

This afternoon I worked in the Masterbedroom, cleaning out the cupboards above our closets. There is stuffed stashed away in there that I have no idea what. I have gone through it all. Have put items in shopping bags to whomever they belong to, and each kid will get these items, and do what they wish with them. Items like coveralls from 4H, extra sheets from the cottage, nick-knacks of small things,  painting their grandma made for them, and their scrapbooks. So once again the wash machine is humming with the clothing and bedding items. Hopefully I can hang them out tomorrow. I hear rain is in the forecast, but there is always Friday or the bathroom rack.

Yesterday I cleaned out the upstairs bathroom cupboards and threw a whole kitchen bag of stuff out. It is all organized and clean now. Today I washed the shower curtain and window curtain, and cleaned the window. It actually feels good to have all this stuff, going or gone.

That little bit of rain sure made a difference. I reseeded the front yard this afternoon while it was decent. We're supposed to get a couple more days of rain our way so hopefully it will grow.

I get tired just reading about your day!
Your rhubarb patch looks wonderful! I have tried 4 times, now, to get some to grow, but no luck, yet. It has come up a couple of times, but something always gets it. Two years ago it was growing really good... I could just taste the pies from it, I couldn't wait. Then one day I went out and it was gone! Yep... a mole hole right under it. So this year I am trying again and have planted 3- one in the ground and 2 in large pots.

Although I really like celebrating Christmas and birthdays... I sure like that idea of ONE present day a year! It sure would make things a LOT easier! I will have to go back and look at some of your posts to see what some of the things are you have made for gifts.

Soap making - I haven't posted anything yet on my blog, but I have thought about it. I would if I thought people would be interested. Actually, for a variety of reasons, I haven't even poured any lately. But I am running out at home and in my shop and have to get some made. So sorry yours didn't set up. I would be glad to try and help you figure out why and give you some pointers. Just the tiniest little thing being off can mess up an entire batch... but so far I haven't lost any, as I just re-batched and saved most of the messes, lol. Once you get a batch to turn out, you are hooked and it then becomes addictive!

I'd be tired after moving all that wood too. Our rhubarb died off last year, due to flooding of the garden. I will need to plant new ones this year.

Oh, yes, I think that is great that your kids are missionaries, especially the one in the Ukraine. My grandmother was originally from the Ukraine.
