J’s Uncle Doug has been visiting (the same Uncle that was out in early October). We have enjoyed his good help and having an extra set of hands during this cold snap is awesome.
I am looking forward to… little brown pullet eggs. The hens are taking the cold well and I’m getting 4-6 white eggs a day.
I am learning… to readjust to winter. Monday we woke up to 2-3″ of snow. It’s been cold all week with highs in the single digits and active winds.
Around the house… the corn stove is on and Molly has taken residency in its warm heat. Yesterday, Doug and J fixed the broken handle on my stove. It seems like I should be getting some extra house jobs done or start a crafty project, but I seem to be keeping busy with chores and everyday tasks.
I am pondering… the weather. Some reports say we will have nice temperatures (upper 20-30’s) returning this weekend. I hope this is just a taste of winter and we still have some good weather before old man winter sets in for the long haul. We have been enjoying a fabulous fall and don’t have as many “fall jobs” crossed off the list as we would like. Our fingers are crossed for nice weather after this front moves out.
A favorite quote for today… We can do whatever we wish to do provided our wish is strong enough. What do you want most to do? That’s what I have to keep asking myself, in the face of difficulties. ~Katherine Mansfield
Do you have snow at your house? How cold is it?
