This day started very very early or I should say yesterday ended very very late. Just as I was turning the computer off last night Re called and asked if we had any electric heaters we could take to her house. Aa was there with the kids while she worked and the heat pump had stopped working.
Hubbie heard me rummaging around downstairs and came to help. We found a couple heaters downstairs and he had a couple in his workshop. We took them over to Aa and tried to figure out what was going on with his heat pump. Even the emergency heat didn't appear to be working.
We came home around midnight in the 16 degree temperature hoping the four heaters would be enough to keep Aa's house warm.
I almost felt guilty snuggling down under our warm covers with our two wood stoves going and the house toasty warm.
This morning I was up at 7:30 expecting g-son and g-daughter and Aa was bringing EL over to spend the morning while Re and BB slept . School was closed today for a teacher work day at the end of the grading period but d-in-love had to work.
It was 12 degrees when I looked at the thermometer when G-son and G-daughter arrived at 8:00.
Just a little later EL arrived for a fun morning with g-son.
They were best buddies from the start eating breakfast off the same TV table.
I took this pic as I laughed because when g-daughter went down for her morning nap I asked them to find something quiet to do while she slept. I walked back in the living room and found them both on their tummies watching a movie on the "little screen" of g-son's i-pod !!!!!
G-son said repeatedly throughout the afternoon that he wished she were still here !!!!
G-daughter had a bad day and was really fussy but later this evening she came around to her happy self rolling around on a blanket on the floor in front of the woodstove.
The animal waterers had frozen completely again this evening with the high only reaching 31 today and dropping quickly as soon as the sun went down. Carrying water twice a day makes chore time twice as long.
D-in-love picked her car up from the garage that repaired the wreck damage today and turned the rental in before she came after the kids. Her car looks good and I know she is glad to have it back as she has much more room in it than the rental. She has a Nissan Pathfinder and the rental was a Chevy Eqinox.
Tomorrow may be an interesting day as snow is predicted for in the morning and then again in the afternoon. Depending again on which weather station you listen to the amount varies greatly. This snow will come from "Ilias" the winter storm named today. This storm is supposed to move through quickly and cause very little trouble but then............
After the kids were picked up hubbie and I had a big bowl of chicken chili and relaxed for the evening.
Daughter's teams played West Henderson tonight at West and lost both games.
Happy 70th birthday to my favorite country music singer of all time Dolly Parton.
God Bless and Good Night.
