So cold

Well it is a few minutes past 6 am and it is so cold near 15 degrees. The sky is clear and the hens and rooster are already off the roost and following me to the horses as I had a bucket of sweet grain. Hubby is getting burned out working so many days. I suppose it is not helping that each day I ask him " do you want the bad news or the bad news?" Which he longer entertained by, even yesterday when no one was here the thermostat decided not to work any longer. The good news is I was able to solder the wires back into place and get it to work again.

Last night I dreamed of laying wood floors downstairs all in record time by myself while the guys took a three day weekend... And if you know me at all, it is something I would do. I too dreamed that the contractor took hubby hunting while I was up to no good.

Anyway I have tons to do today and think that the ice will keep me from some of it. But there are things I can do like watching the washer for over an hour to see when it leaks a problem that started when I washed the first load after the sewage thing happened on Christmas.

Well have a great day and be warm and stay outta trouble.

The life of a farm girl!! Well, we are having record floods here and our first freeze is expected sometime this evening - I am NOT looking forward to that! I'll take the cold or the rain but not both at once.

Oh, and don't forget that idiots are driving through low water crossings that have been know to cause deaths and are having to be rescued. Have you heard? Dept of Public Safety has a new slogan: "Turn Around, Don't Drown."

We've had about 6 inches of rain since last night.
