Whew, from 63 to 22 in two days!
The wind has a bite to it, and the deck rail became iced-over this morning.
Our plans changed, and I did not go south to get Nathan, because it was drizzling and freezing further south of us.
We will drive down together, Keith and I, on Monday, after the weather snow/sleet/rain episode of
Saturday into Sunday.
Hopefully, son Jim and his family will be here on Sunday to have their treats and
get their presents.
This beautiful handmade butterfly came from our little friend Tweedles, who has been so sick this year, but is getting better.
Tweedles, it's going to hang on our tree for Christmas! Thank you!
This has been the order of the day today. A good day to bake, it is so cold and windy.
Keith, God bless him, is attempting to get the last two gifts after he finishes at his office.
We are supposed to have snow/rain/sleet tomorrow.
Can you see all the little birds on the ground under the feeder? The crows have been here, and all manner of jays, cardinals, etc. etc.. They are all drinking on the deck, too, and I actually poured the cold water from that fortex, and put warm water in it about an hour ago. I'll do that again when I go out to do chores in a bit. Drinkable water is so important for the wild birds.
One last swim last night for Aflac and Donald... and then I dumped that pool about 7 PM.
They are using fortexes today to keep clean in, and let me tell you... it's not pleasant carrying that water! It was sheer luxury to use the hoses for three days!
And it was good for the ducks and chickens to get down and work that hay I cleaned out of the goatyard and put into the pasture. I also split three small pumpkins and put them out.
This morning, we saw a squirrel hightail it across the pasture for some pumpkin seeds!
You can see by the lack of light in this picture that we lost the beautiful sunlight and warmth, and have descended again into the freezer.
Keith has been so kind this afternoon to go do some last minute shopping, and then we are going to stay in and stay safe during the bad weather expected this weekend.
I hope you all do the same!
