I was unloading the dishwasher.
Many of my cups had water in the tops (bottoms??).
I grabbed a tea towel to soak it up.

The tea towel was sour, so I took it to the laundry room.
While walking to the laundry room, I looked out on a side porch and wondered for the 100th time if the potted ficus tree had made it through the winter.
|Not my ficus. Mine was outdoors|
I went outside and gave a few branches a bend and twist.
Not conclusive enough.
They didn't break sharply, but we've had rain recently.
I scraped the trunk with my fingernail in a few places.
The bark came free easily. No green underneath.
Conclusion: Dead ficus tree.
Nice day equals "This will only take me a minute. I'll pull it up and haul it out to the brush pile. Then I'll return to the dishwasher."
On the way to the brush pile, I decided that the root ball and 5 foot tree might be fun for the chickens in their run. I can put it in the brush pile after they've decimated it.
While in the chicken run, the amazing weather makes me think of spring.
Which makes me think of the fact that all my gear (extension cords, 2 lamps, a sheet, a shower curtain and several zip ties) need to be removed. The days of 20* weather are over.
Yes, the my chicken coop looks like the Beverly Hillbillies built it--inside and out.
Don't judge me for being creative. :)

The heat lamps were filthy with dust. I decided that I'd put them away clean instead of dirty.
I ended up back in the laundry room where this all started to get an old rag so I could wet-wipe the bells of the lamps and the extension cords.
All my chicken warming paraphernalia is now clean and put away.
Back to the dishwasher.
With a stop by the computer to tell this story.
Oh, and I watered a tree while I was out by the chicken coop.
There was a wheel barrow full of water.
Had to do something with it.
Do you ever do anything like this?
Start something and end up doing a half dozen other things instead?
Do I have ADD?
