COLD!

Weather report is calling for tonight to be the coldest one thus far...somewhere around zero with wind chills of minus fifteen degrees F.

Now Wait Just a Doggone Minute!
Isn't that the weather report for last night? I think so...
I moved horses around today, made sure everyone has shelter, food and water. When it's this cold, shelter is a necessity. My neighbor seems to think I pamper my animals and he's, probably, right but, like Dave points out, "my animals, my money, my time" so it's all right to "pamper" them with shelter, warm water and fresh hay. Odd, but I never thought of those things as pampering; I've always thought of those things as necessities.
Grateful heart:
*Dave...he takes care of his women and when you look up the words "steadfast, honorable, faithful" in the dictionary, there's his picture

*Stephanie - beloved beautiful sister who has more talents than she can use in one lifetime
*Steve - beloved handsome brother who has a depth of soul unmatched

*Godly parents - Jim & Gladys who preach the love of Christ every day of their lives...sometimes they even use words

*honest work both to earn my keep and to increase life's enjoyment

*winter - even Earth must have her sleep

  1. I just found your blog via your farm website and I can't wait to read more! I don't think there's anything more interesting or pleasant to read about than well-lived farm life, I can't help but lust after it!

  2. I live in NC and raise sheep, supposedly for training my dogs to herd, but really, for themselves. I also spin and quilt, homeschool my kids who are mostly grown and love a quiet life and the Lord. I've been reading your blog for almost a year now, off and on, and love the coziness of it, the attitude of the heart that permeates it. May the Lord richly bless you and yours.
