Tractor Supply - I Looove You!
You sell so many useful things!
Here's my haul from today's lunchtime trip. A tow rope, an oil lamp and a heated water bowl for my furry little cabbages.
(That is one of the few things I remember from 7th grade french. "Mon petit chou," or "my little cabbage" used as a term of endearment. Here's an explanation of the term: http://podictionary.com/?p=584)
Now I can be a good mommy and give my babies water that doesn't freeze while I'm gone. It almost balances out the fact that I'm a bad mommy for leaving them outside in 9-degree weather. They do like the wool blanket I brought them though. I suspect they snuggle on the wool blanket on the porch loveseat and keep each other warm, even though I can't catch them at it. Every time I come home they're in the yard waiting for me because they heard me coming up the hill, (or Maggie heard me and Desmond followed her out - Desmond is hard of hearing).
