The rain has come and hopefully gone for a couple days. I am very thankful we didnt get the snow they were predicting.. Thank you Thank you. The drive way has turned to a wading pool at one pint, if there were fish to be caught i could of sat on me the deck and fished. Now everything looks dirty and is glare ice. I have already done the ice dance 2 step and Rob he actually went down.
Many of our roads are flooded or will flood as the run off continues. 2 of our well traveled roads in town are closed to due high and fast running water.
One lady living in the village has actually had to move her horses to higher ground.
We have water over the road in several places on my road. The banks need to be punched thru and allow it to drain over the bank before the cold weather and freezing temperature get here. Dirt road have a glaze over them.
Keeping all the goats and sheep locked in for the day. I dont need any one busting a leg. The temperature has dropped almost 20 degrees since this morning we are just a little above 30, right at that freezing mark.
Wind is starting to pick up, still a heavy mist I guess I had thought it had stopped but no, I can see it now.
Headed back sewing here shortly, thinking about doing some baking also. I am not playing outside unless we get called out, slip and fall is not on my schedule for today.
Thinking about trying to make bagels. I here there alot of work time consuming. But we eat alot and I would like to make some more of our food that is not filled with preservatives. Thinking about a batch of cream puffs and maybe whoopie pies for today.
Stayed up late last night putting together a bunch of ole fashion puckers to make a few throw pillows to sell. I want to make useful but bring back some ole fashion country,rustic stuff. I am not i to this really modern look. Everyone has their taste and that just isnt mine. I still in my mind am working on my canning jar wall hanging. I see a picture of one on the www.HomesteadingToday.com web site awhile back. If your interested in homesteading, animals, gardens, simplifying life. Check it out I love it, One of my most favorite places to learn thing, get ideas, read about others like me, their trial and lifestyles. Alot of nice people who are lot like family.
Well I guess its time to get off here and get busy again.
I pray you all stay safe, thanks for stopping by.
Cant wait for the snow to go so we can get outside and play in the dirt
