Well, well... those 60 degree temps from yesterday are long gone. We started out at 40 this morning, so I didn't have to carry waters but used the hose... and now we are at 32 at 4 PM.
I'm hurrying to post so I can do chores.
I didn't let the goats out today... and they complained when they ventured out and saw me.
However, most of the time they were doing this:
And there was very little poking one's noses outside in the cold air.
It is blowing here, on top of it.
Many of the chickens decided to stay in, too.
Abby is extremely suspicious of the Christmas things.
And here is the "big" tree... the 6.5 footer.
I hung wreaths behind it this year instead of pictures.
(Note Abby checking it out).
I also have a huge pile of magazines to go through and donate to the free pile at the Good Shepherd.
And here is the small tree:
And the sideboard, with some of my Santa collection, and the nativity scene
This is NOT my parent's nativity scene, which I thought I had found after four years. I am still heartbroken over it... I used it for 35 years and it has come up missing. I thought we had found it.
Chris and I will still be looking for it as we put the boxes away, and going through those that are still in the storage buildings.
I will show you more of the house over the next few days... I am still plugging away at it, but I do have all the boxes removed to the storage buildings now. I am going to work on a garland tomorrow, and start sacking the Christmas presents.
It is very cold out now, down to 30 degrees... with the wind blowing. I am going to stop here and take some warm water out to the goats. For the first time tonight... Lilly did not want to go to the pasture to check it out for me. I don't know if that indicates a predator (which she would not be afraid of) or something else, but I listen to the animals around here.
Stay warm, Everyone!
