Evening Round-up and an E-Mail Experiment
Temperature has dropped again, skies are clear, moon will soon be full. 'George' was relit this evening to give the place another blast of heat, just in case the frost arrives - it's looking highly likely!
At long last, Frugaldom has the 'feeding station' almost completed for the feathered friends. All their food & water dishes have been moved inside a 3m square run, which has been covered in a layer of woodchips for extra drainage. There's no gate, so the birds are free to come and go as they please, but better still, it's adjacent to the house, meaning no more trekking around the garden and sliding in mud at the crack of dawn on cold, wet mornings. I'm planning on planting a fast growing willow hedge around this run to help provide some extra shelter for the daft birds; they never seem to have the sense to go back inside their houses to keep warm & dry when the weather gets bad, so I may as well grow them a frugal shelter. The first lot of withies has already been cut and stripped, waiting to be planted.
Hopefully this post will appear correctly on the blog. It's the first time I've tried using the email2blog facility, but I'm finding all these new 'techie bits' most interesting. Let's just hope that everything goes to plan and the Frugaldom scribbles don't end up elsewhere uninvited.
Don't forget that you can visit us at http://www.frugaldom.com where we have forums for discussing all aspects of frugal living, household budgetting, microholding and frugal business. Feel free to follow the blog, if nothing else, and leave your comments so I know if I'm getting things right (or wrong, as the case may be).
