Spring

Sunday January 23,2011

The mountain is bright and sunny. But the temperatures  outside say something different from a  heat wave. The highs today will be roughly, um,, not warm, sun shining on the therometer and it reads maybe 14 above zero. Highs in the mid teens is not high. But will feel like a heat wave compared to tomorrow. It is a blessing to see all the animals running around with a beautiful thick winter coat.
Will be restocking the hay in the rabbit cages later so they will stay toasty warm tonight as-25 with wind chill hits.
I dont believe at those temps to many cars or truck even equipment will start with out help.
 
I have Hailey today my #3 grand daughter, she will be 9 in July. We are doing some house cleaning and laundry. as I type this , she is combing out the mane to her my little pony.
Teaching her how to make laundry soap later and we will be putting  it in containers to sell on the web site, so check it out.
The cook stove is finally going wonderfully and  has heated up the  main floor nicely. A wonderful chicken stew and dumpling will be made for suppa. We will make cookies after the soap is done. Need to keep this child occupied. LOL
 
Want to finish up some quilt tops today and get them on the site. Need to start having this farm support itself.
 
Chickens are starting to lay again, which is a blessing, theres nothing more frustrating than buying nasty store bought eggs.
I pray you all stay warm during this cold snap.
Hot coffee and seed catalogs are always a wonderful  way to relax on a Sunday afternoon. I try real hard  not to work to hard after all it is the Lords Day.
 
I do believe its time for me to get busy again and put the chicken on to parboil.
I hope you all have a wonderful day and stay in where its warm. Remember to  check on the neighbors to make sure they are ok. Check the animals who have to stay outside,, dry bedding and extra hay and water help their bodies stay warm and produce heat.
 
God Bless
