All the water was frozen completely solid so I had to bust the ice out of the waterers and refill them with cold water that, I'm sure, will very shortly by frozen solid again. Hopefully the chickens are smart enough to drink while they can.
I heard Cayenne the horse calling me the entire time I was at the chicken houses. Her water was frozen also and she needed some fresh hay to warm her .
I came inside and had breakfast and then tackled the task of house cleaning some of the places I have been neglecting.
I took everything out of my canned goods, drink supplies, dessert supplies and spices and herb cabinets. Tossed things that were out of date, proud of myself that there wasn't as many things as in some years to throw away.
Re had a hair appointment at 1:00 so she brought little EL by to nap here while she was gone. She slept a good 2-hour nap.
While she slept I got most of the things rearranged and back in the cabinets. I need another lazy susan for my spice cabinet.
When El woke up I gave her a new farm set that used to be g-son's to play with and it kept her entertained until mom made it home.
The high temperature today was a balmy 27 degrees for a new record all around. It has been a good day to work inside and feed the fire.
There were several counties just north of us that had to close schools today because of snow. Madison county got over 3 inches of snow and with the cold temps it stayed on the roads.
I wonder how their bodies are reacting to the early cold weather?
I am thankful we got our new stove in because it has really kept the house warm today.
I would like to have a new Pacific Energy stove upstairs as well but we couldn't afford to replace both stoves the same year. Maybe next season.
Thankful tonight for the warmth of a fire and for the warmth of God's loving arms that He wraps around me continuously.
Good Night and God Bless.
