It feels strange to write a post with no photos. I have taken many. I even went outside in six degree to photograph bubbles. I have to remember to use cold for my bubble water next time. The warmer water made them even more determined to pop. There are great photos when the weather is this extreme, but I cannot share them. I am still on a borrowed computer. The same borrowed computer that took the media card from my camera, started in some motion I still don't understand, and emptied the card. It then told me that the file was empty. So, now I just shoot photos. I will max out the media card and share them when my computer gets better. I ordered parts. Soon, I hope!
Wendell and his friends have spent a great deal of time out in the bitter cold. They have a shelter they can go to, but they would rather be "guys" and tough it out. They are eating far more hay than usual. Along with the clever, but bratty pony, the big horses have gotten out of their pasture twice now. I expect them at the front door any day now. As if the farmer's boots weren't messy enough...
I've been busy crafting. What have you been doing this week? I took my sewing machine out to make my youngest a sock monkey. She is in bed with a cold, so the monkey will wait. In the meantime, I am making stuffed toys. I'd love to share a picture, but you know about that silly computer. Blah!
I love to pick vegetables from our big greenhouse when the weather is nasty. It is usually warm and the soil smells lovely. The plants make me think of warmer weather. This last week was an exception. I decided to pick in our huge high tunnel the day that this snow started. There wasn't any blue in the sky, and the sun was nowhere to be found. It was very cold and the plants begged me to put the row covers back on them and go away. A bit of salad left with me. It was covered with snow by the time I got back to the house.
D4's bunny is in a small kennel in the office. Even her hutch would not keep her warm enough. One of our young ewes decided to live on the wild side. She gave birth during the coldest time we've had so far. C.S.Farmer put mama and the baby in his truck. They were a bit nervous, but happy to be able to get warm. They calmed down a lot when D3 turned on classical music. The are in a safe shed with a warming light. It's right next door to the runt piglets I am raising (the Squiglets). I like being able to peek in on mama and baby. I love sheep.
I hope everyone has a good weekend. Please be safe and warm. If you are not living in a similar climate, then please ignore the "warm" part. Anyway- take care.
