Spring

January 6,2015

Good morning from a very cold mountain. Chilly has nothing to do with it.
Coffee was welcomed for sure, not sure it warmed the inside as well as keeping my hands warm.
Chores have been done. The pigs stayed toasty warm in their thick deep bedding of hay. I did give them another bale today to add to it. The new water system is working awesome right now. Knock on wood. I wont like the electric bill, but I guess I cant have it both ways, totally thawed and low bill when running heat tapes.
Now I need to work on Bobs water tank, his heater isn't working and his water is froze.

Chickens were happy to get the extra scoop of corn for breakfast. Glad to see their egg production has increased.

Right now we have a temperature of 1 degree, that doesn't included the fact its windy again today. I still have 1 cord of wood to stack and really need to get it done today because they are saying Thursday is going to be even colder. Lucky me. And Friday is more snow.
As much as I miss my goats I am sure glad I didn't have to go out and milk this morning. I would of had milk cubes as they hit the bucket. A nice warm milking room will be added to the barn for sure.

Thinking a nice thick hot corn chowder for tonight with cast iron skillet corn bread. Apple pie for dessert.

Been working on a few scrap quilt each night after supper. Getting a head start on Christmas. Everything will be handmade  home made. Every one has already been warned

Have a craving for some peanut butter cookies,, but trying to loose weight and they wont help the cause. Maybe just a tsp of peanut butter will cure the desire.


Well I better get busy,,, that wood isn't stacking itself. Keep me warm twice, stacking it and burning it.

Have a glorious day. Be kind to one another.


God Bless from Ledge Hill Farm
