Drifts

I apologize for not posting anything is several days. Things have been a little busy here. Julie is sick with a sore throat and head cold. We took her to the doctor yesterday. Thankfully it is not strep throat. But she feels yucky just the same. Rest and lots of liquids for her. Also we have been doctoring Jasper’s (young dog) paw. He seems to have stepped on somthing and run it through his paw in 3 different places. The first day it happened he just limped, the second day it was swollen 3 times normal size, the third day it bled alot, then finally it has started ( I hope) to improve. The swelling is down, he still can’t put any weight on it, but it looks much better. Of course, he has been allowed to sleep on the enclosed porch, which I am thinking he likesWAY too much. Cold temperatures here-below zero wind chills. Wind gusts of about 60 mph. We had to let the fire go out in the wood stove. It was just too much smoke coming in the house, especially with Julie sick. This is definitely on Hubby’s to-do list to fix this problem this summer. 100_2915

The pictures are of drifts in our side yard. They are a little darker than I had hoped but you can get the idea anyway. I estimate them to be over 4 ft. Yesterday when we took Julie to the doctor, the main road was pretty bad. 3-4 ft. drifts blocking one side of the road. Lots of placeshad only 1 lane open. When we came back, the road crews had cleared them. Our road crews have definitely spent a lot of time working this winter. Speaking of work, I guessI better get busy. Take care and God bless.

  1. I am so glad I don’t live there anymore 🙂 Hope you get to come down this weekend … I think that the highs are only gonna be in the low 50’s

  2. For my laundry soap, I use FelsNaptha, borax, and washing soda. I use 1/2 bar of the soap, 2/3 cup borax, and 2/3 cup washing soda. Mix the grated bar soap with 6 cups water and heat until melted. I put my borax and washing soda in and heat until it is dissolved. I then put my 4 cups of hot water in my bucket and add my soap. I then add my other 6 cups and 1 gallon of water.
