BRRRR !!!!  A really chilly morning at 26 degrees and still a bit windy as I get out to break the ice off all the waterers and hope everything gets a drink of cold water before it refreezes.
The ground is covered with a spattering of ice pellets this morning.
And the surrounding mountains are covered with Rime Ice.
I came inside and started my house cleaning after breakfast. I changed out all the furniture covers today and put away all the January/winter decor and got out the red roses and hearts for February's Valentines day.
I thought about getting some things done outside but changed my mind when I went out on the porch to shake out some rugs, at 38 degrees and still windy it was cold.
Re called and I went to Belks and Aldi with her to help take care of the kids while she shopped. In Belks she found a bunch of kids clothes at a great deal and then after a trip to Wendy's to get little EL some chicken nuggets for her supper I sat with EL and baby BB while Re shopped for our groceries in Aldi.
We got home around 7:45, hubbie walked over and helped get everything carried inside before we walked across the hill home.
Hubbie and I relaxed and watched TV tonight listening to the wind get really hard outside. It is 29 degrees at 11:00 and with the wind speeds sustained around 25mph the chill factor is reaching single digits in many areas.
Praying that the power doesn't get knocked out tonight in this cold wind.
Thankful today for the blessings of this day and asking for God's grace in the coming days.
Good Night and God Bless.
