This was a cold morning. The  hens acted insulted when I opened the henhouse door and threw scratch feed on the frozen ground.
After breakfast hubbie took my van to a near by inspection station so I can renew my tag over the internet.
Daughter called and wanted me to wait until she finished ball practice to go into town so she could go with me.
She came by and had lunch with us then she and I headed out to do a little after Christmas shopping along with the regular weekly errands.
We walked back up town to a couple shops we were in before Christmas to see what sales they were having. I bought a couple things at very deep discounts and she also found some gifts and decorations for next year specials. It was even colder walking down the streets today than it was last week as this is the coldest day of season so far with highs only around 38 degrees.
We picked up baking supplies along with our bargains and headed home.
We made it home just in time for evening chores. Daughter went home to see if her power was back on yet as it was off when she left early this morning.
Hubbie and I had a light supper and relaxed for the evening.
This is a picture d-in-love shared with me of g-son on Christmas morning.
He has his dad's reindeer hat on.
Every time we have seen him since Christmas day he has been playing games on his new leap frog that Santa brought him.
The weather is winter like again tonight with lows expected to get into the mid 20's but at least there is no wind.
With market on Saturday I need to decide what to bake but the forecast being different with each weatherman I have no idea how much to bake.
Some say rain beginning Saturday evening,some say a wintry mix starting Saturday morning  !!??

A couple degrees in temperature can make the difference between rain or snow !
This time of year my baking schedule becomes a gamble, if I bake a lot and the weather turns bad even if market is open no customers come out, if I don't bake then customers come after things I don't have . What to do,what to do ???
Maybe by morning the weather guessers will be more agreeable.
This was a beautiful evening ,I was late doing chores so I just caught the last of a beautiful sunset in the western sky.
But a gorgeous full moon was rising in the eastern sky.
Later there was a clear ring around the moon which means we are in for more rain or maybe our first snow within 2 days.

Wonder what we'll get ???
Thanking the Lord tonight for a wonderful blessed day and asking for His guidance in all that I do.
Good Night and God Bless.

Don't you just love how the weather people CAN'T predict the weather? I have given up and just hope for the best. Your g-son looks cute in his reindeer hat and the pictures of the moon are gorgeous. God's blessings to you.
