Today has been chilly here in Floyd. Wind gusts of 30-40 mph with temperatures in the mid 20’s. We let our chickens out every evening so they can scratch and peck. Well, this evening they just wanted to come up on the back porch and hide from the wind. We all laughed and said soon they would be wanting to come in the house.
Other than cold, today has been a nice day. We started school back today. After a 3 week break, I thought it would be difficult to get going again but it went well. We had a nice visit with Jess and the kids yesterday. David needed to work on his book and so Jess brought the kids up to play at MawMaw’s house for a while. We were sitting around talking and Daniel looks at me and says “MawMaw, we need to go cook something”. He dearly loves to help cook so we decided we needed to make chocolate chips cookies.
Well, I guess that’s about it. I need to go put more wood on the fire. Enjoy your evening and God bless.
For those of you who do not have the comfort of a wood fire to enjoy, I thought I would share ours. One of the girls(I’m not sure which one) took this picture. I thought it looked so warm and cozy. Today I cooked chicken and dumplings over that wood fire in my cast iron kettle. YUM! Very cold temperatures this morning made us really appreciate that wood fire. The temperature was around 8 degrees with a below zero wind chill. COLD!!! Today it warmed up to the mid 20’s and the wind has laid down some but it is still very cold. Oh well, I quess it’s that time of year. Today was bible study day here at my home. One of the ladies brought some wild rice soup to share with everyone. Thanks, Barbara. We have about 2 weeks left on our Peter study and then in January we plan to start Beth Moore’s Esther study. We will be taking a 2 week Christmas break. Well I guess I better get some work done. I am working on a quilt. I will try to post a picture when it is finished. God Bless.
