A frosty January greeting ~
The animals all fared well as did those of us who were housebound. Three of us spent hours cleaning up and moving snow around. Thankfully the temps were not brutal. That is all about to change so I hear.
The predicted low for us on Sunday evening : -30! Now that's cold. Mind you, I love winter and think all the snow is just beautiful. I'm not appreciative of temperatures that cold. The heat tapes are on in the barn and the tub heaters will work overtime. One tub I cover with plywood, the other is in the sheep barn. With everyone huddled in that barn, that water will not get so cold.
A busy weekend preparing the barn to keep everyone comfortable; stacking extra fire wood on the porch and keeping the woodstoves cranking.
Tom and I are car shopping today. He knows what he wants and we have a destination in mind. He's done awesome and will be very happy to have his own wheels again!
That's about it from here......hope you are well and staying warm.
A friend sent me a great quote and I wanted to share it - great words of wisdom :)
"There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING....."
