Well, can you believe this? It warmed up a little bit and it's snowing great big snowflakes. I tried to catch them with the camera and a couple showed in the picture but not like I'd hoped. Great big huge flakes just floating down like feathers. I enjoy this kind of snow. According to the weatherman, it's going to be in the 40s this weekend. Boy am I happy to hear that! I'm sure the animals are happy too. The poor goats haven't seen the outside of the barn in a couple of weeks and the chickens are still in a huff over the snow on the ground. I had to butcher 4 hens yesterday, they had freeze injuries on their legs and were unable to get around. We had fried chicken for supper with some fried potatoes. This cold snap is showing up in the make shift root cellar as well. The onions and potatoes took a beating from the extreme cold and I cooked some last night that would have been ruined when it warms up. More incentive to get the real root cellar done come spring!
The spot where my tooth was is looking good today and it's not hurting very badly. I'm so excited, I got to eat breakfast this morning! I keep telling myself to slow down so I don't gain weight, LOL. Food is good tho, I hadn't realized how much I missed it!
Just 4 and a half weeks to go before I can think about starting seeds. I'm really dying to pull them all out and spread them over the kitchen table. I so love starting seeds, I get to dreaming about the garden, the fresh veges and the harvest. Always such a hopeful time of the year.
I'm a little on pins and needles today, we should hear something about hubby going back to work today around 3pm. I hope when the call comes in, it's to get him straight to his physical. Say a little prayer today for him, he needs the boost of faith.
Not much else going on around the farm today, it's still too cold to be doing much outside but the daily chores. I am going to try a new recipe or 2 I've picked up the last few days. One of them is a bread/dinner roll/doughnut recipe I got from my friends over at Pioneer Living. If you haven't checked their website out yet, you should. some really great people over there! The link is on the sidebar.
Time to work on whipping up some bread......
