Consequently I use one of those, the wider one for masons, to scrape frozen poosickles off the poop board. 

 

Snowing like a banshee here this morning, but I have to tell you 3F felt like a summer breeze this morning compared to the last 2 days. 

:pop   Leave some poosickles on the blade and you'd barely have to brandish it at the city folk...best self defense tool EVER. :gig

Just don't put it in the purse that way.

I took Monday off - need to get caught up on my sewing before I'm not able to open the door in there. 

 

Hopefully I'll have my bunny panel done today (if I get off BYC and start sewing). 

Me too...gotta go as well. Have two funerals today; mother of my husband's classmate/friend and one of my high school classmates.

Last thing I need is to be late. :th  Stay warm and safe everyone!

No threat of freezing rain here and the only ice covering is where I spilled the water I was carrying to the coop.

Snowing now, but it's so cold it's the really fluffy stuff so even tho we are going to have potentially another foot

by dark it's no big deal.  Tomorrow the wind picks up and the daytime HIGH will be around -10F with a -30 to -40

windchill.

Children and grandchildren not able to come north after all.  SIL's mom dxd with 3rd round of breast cancer.  (she

was clear for several years) They are meeting her in Madison @ UW cancer center for tests to see if treatment this

time is worth it.  so sad.

Car still in the shop from the deer strike BEFORE Thanksgiving and no chance of repairs being finished before the

New Year and just can't trust the 10 yr old little tin can loaner with 100,000 miles on it we were given to travel

anywhere in this kind of weather so no trip to the city for Christmas shopping, seeing the lights, etc.

Final straw?  Vet called yesterday to inform us she got the quote on the surgery that the pup needs, and must be

done at a specialty surgery center hours away, will run around $3500.00.  She's going to call around for us and 

see if someone else will do it for less.  In her defense she thought that was crazy too.

Anyway, after all this, including the weather, I stuffed most of the decorations and the plastic tree (hated that thing

anyway) back under the bed, tossed the turkey back in the garage freezer and we're calling Christmas a wrap

this year. Christmas eve service if the roads are clear otherwise snack food and football Sunday.

Time to drag out the seed catalogs, track down a good breeder (no more hatchery shipping nightmares for me)

and dream of spring.


well... crap.... so sorry  Chicki  :hugs

Consider yourself hugged, chickisoup.

 

Christmas is a state of mind and heart anyway.

 

God Bless.

Awww, thank you Deb.  Just when sometimes choosing to live so far from civilization can come back to bite you in the bottom.

Especially when it's too cold to want to get up at a decent hr.  Well, 9:30 it was today. 

Wonderful family, very understanding husband when it comes to chickens, dogs, birds, one big Golden Retriever, and thankful to the Lord for all!
