The wind finally went down and the snow quit blowing around causing so many problems even though it’s still below zero.
Everybody in the barn sends their greetings – all are passing their time inside eating hay and laying about.
There is nothing – absolutely nothing – that compares to picking up a warm egg in the barn on a frigid morning. It’s like a small miracle!
I bought this toy xylophone at the thrift store for $1. I saw a post on Pinterest that hung one of these little toys in the barn during the winter months, when the chickens are all confined, to ease boredom – ha! Now I’ll let you know if they really peck at it at not. Crazy, huh? But like I always tell people – I don’t want my animals to just exist — I want them to be HAPPY!
Yesterday I sat in my chair and read for hours and today I had to finish this great book before I did anything else. I’d recommend it as being similar to Beartown in that it’s about a small community, their kids, activities and problems and I loved it!
And today I got this in the mail from my friend Carol. Stephen Colbert’s Midnight Confessions. I know this will be hilarious.
We are still sewing – I love some of these new quilts and just wish I could post pictures of the process. Even though we are using strictly Civil War fabrics for this book, I can’t wait to remake some of them in bright colors. We are confident you’re going to like them!
