We named him Robin Reed after our local weather forecaster.

Our pond had about a two inches of ice on it and now there's patches of snow on top of the ice.

Hubby's new weather station.  It's been used more than any he's ever had.

Yes, it’s wintertime and it’s supposed to be cold but darn it we just got teased really bad with 50 and 60 degree weather and my body is just not liking this one bit!  I can stand the cold if there’s sunshine to go along with it but that wind is wicked!!  My son thinks I’m a wimp but one of these days he’ll understand where I’m coming from. Right, Shawn???

I know I have to stick it out for at least three or four more months so I guess I’ll be quilting, crocheting, reading, cooking, embroidering, and blogging a lot to keep me occupied for a while.  I’ll be making hourly trips to the henhouse for eggs and taking them warm water.  I’ll be checking in on Roscoe three or four times a day and making sure he’s okay with just his fur coat and watching to make sure hubby’s hounds will have plenty of protein for food and hay in their boxes for warmth.  We have their houses facing the morning sun to keep them warm as well.  Mother Nature will take care of everything else.

Now, to find my seed catalogs and make a list!!!

  1. It’s terribly cold here also, BUT the clouds have lifted and we do have sunshine. I can handle SO much in sunshine.

  2. You can keep that heat sir!!I don’t like the cold but I definitely don’t do well in the heat. Sports played in any heat is ridiculous. My son and his fiancee are heading to New Jersey in a couple weeks to do the stupid (my opinion only) “polar plunge” to raise money for Special Olympics. I told my son I could not in good conscience support his endeavor to get pneumonia and would send my usual donation to Special Olympics. There’s no talking him out of this!!

  3. Your cold snap has been reported here in the Australian news.
    Our news covers the World as well as Australia.
    Well you freeze, here the heat has arrived – Melbourne yesterday reached 43 Celsius with hot winds!!! In Brisbane not so hot – about 34 Celsius but the humid (sauna like) heat.
    Of course this is tennis month in Australia – why in this heat is beyond me – should be moved to March!
    I will e-mail you the reason – just refresh my memory when I review the chook photos that you sent.
    I wouldn’t dare put my tennis reasons on your blog for the Grand Slam event to be moved. Your readers would think I was “The Devil Incarnate”. It is “Tennis Australia’s” money grabbing reason why it stays where it is – yep Money counts with the TV people. Too bad that some of the players just drop on the courts from heat exhaustion and are rushed to hospital.
    They bring in the ‘heat law’ to stop play when it reaches 38 Celsius, but the court temperature is way over that degree of heat.

    Maybe in February I will be screaming for some Virginia snow and
    cold – February here – anywhere in Australia except the beach 24/7 is not the time for visitors to come – unless, of course, they like ovens!!
    Cheers
