One of the numerous reasons I am looking forward to our new digs is for the ample space for a mud room.
Currently we reside in a 500ish square foot cabin on a sheep farm. It is intensely charming and cozy. However, due to the gritty nature of my job, I keep my eh- fragrant farm items on the porch. Coveralls, boots etc. This morning, I forgot to bring my chilled footwear inside to thaw on my return trip inside from checking the rabbits.
Lucky for me it doesn't take long for my day job milling flour and managing small scale livestock for my muscles to warm me up. Though I really wish I hadn't forgotten that second cup of coffee!
