Everything is stiff looking out there today. Trees just stand there grey and cold. Clouds are moving in so the dazzling snow is grey too One of the horses has his head hanging over the gate looking for water cause the water in his tub is stiff too. The other horse stands at the big round bale trying to pull the hay out of the stiff bale. Little shivers run through me as I sit here to type. Just one of those kind of chilly days in January. Back down to minus twenty-five. Not really warming up much as the day wears on.
House work is done except for drying the laundry which I am waiting for the dryer to thaw out. It hates to work in the colder temps. Hmmmm just like some of us!
Finishing this quilt is my goal for this week. I want to move onto another quilt or something else at least.
I have the turkey carcass from last night's supper in the pot cooking away for broth. We are going to have the night before's leftovers for supper tonight. so supper is pretty well taken care of. I don't have any baking to do either today we can finish up whatever odds and ends of cookies and muffins are here.
The basement heater got started so maybe it will warm up soon in here. Usually once that gets going it is like a sauna in no time.
The river water is coming in faster now. The sump pump is going to be on pretty well steady now. Hope it doesn't burn itself out.
Chickadees and whiskey jacks are busy at the cow carcass. The dogs are doing great on it. Everyone has put on weight even my Nellie dog who never puts on weight. We have fed her tons of dog food hoping she would fill out. But to no avail. Now she looks great. and no one is fat~ just nice. It would be nice to not have to go back to dog food ever. Not sure if that will happen but tis a nice thought. Have to find more old cows to put down.
This is the middle of the day which I rarely do anything on my computer this time of day but seeing as I had not done anything thought I would just to let the world know we are still alive and kicking here.
Have to go though as this holds up my phone line and who knows maybe someone wants to call ~~maybe we won something~~!! You never know someone may have put our name in to something.
Well anyways enough silliness I will go check my dryer and see if it is willing to work now.
No matter how unexciting my day may seem to be to others I am having a great day. And thinking some great thoughts. Doing what I can to the best of my ability.
Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God,
in the mountain of his holiness.
Beautiful for situation,
the joy of the whole earth,
is mont Zion,
on the sides of the north,
the city of the great King.
