Lessons Learned Lately #5

Lessons Learned Lately- are lists of little tips, things I've learned (usually the hard way) that I find humorous.

On chilly mornings, when doing the morning outside chores, it's beneficial to dress in layers.

1. Once that garden hose escapes the bucket and douses your skirt, it's really helpful to have your long johns on underneath as you are running for the back door while stripping off said dripping wet skirt.

2.  Make the top layer something loose that can be put on and off easily. That will save time when you are putting it on or taking it off- for instance if you get really warm from running inside to change a dripping wet skirt. For myself, I grab one of DH's jackets since he does a wonderful job of leaving them hanging by every door within easy reach.

3. If you need to remove the jacket (because you got too warm running inside to change a dripping wet skirt) hang it up on a fence post that you will be passing on your way inside when the chores are done-but not on a post that is within a goats stretched-as-far-as-she-can-and-if-she-just-sticks-out-her-tongue-she-can-get-that-jacket's reach.

4. If you're reading tip #3 too late, become a blogger. It's a creative way to let your DH know the goat ate his jacket. Um, yeah. Love ya, babe!
