Morning barn report

Bitter cold, nine degrees when I went out, thirteen now as I write.  The setting full moon glowed orange on the horizon through the black silhouetted trees when I walked the dog at the crack of dawn.  A beautiful sight.  Almost two gallons, a little more than a cup short.  Two chicken eggs, four duck eggs.  Opened the bird door to the chicken house to let the ducks and chickens range as they wanted.  The chickens stayed in and the ducks crossed the barnyard to hang inside the barn.  I kept the goats and donkey in because of the bitter cold.  After filtering the warm milk, I immediately added culture and rennet for chevre and popped it in the cold oven until tomorrow morning.
