Tag Archives: Head Cold

Monday

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all having a good day.  We have been busy here-wait, don’t I always say that?  Well, its true but sometimes I think you all probably get tired of hearing it.  Today we gathered the last of the early corn.  It had gotten too hard to just eat so I cut it off the cob and put it into a crock to pickle.  I love pickled corn!  Also, we worked up a bushel of apples.  We got them as cull apples and they were only $6.00.  Not too bad and they really were pretty.  Just a few spots and bruises, not many at all.  We got 9 qts of applesauce and 4 half gal. of apple juice from them.  On top of all of that, I have been dealing with some type of head cold or allergies or something.  All I know is that I feel yucky , my nose is congested and my throat is sore.  I do not, repeat-DO NOT- like being sick.  I would not have been able to accomplish any of this today, if not for the help of my girls.  They are such helpers.  Thanks girls!

Well, the last canner is done.  Time to start cooking supper.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

UPDATE:  My wonderful Hubby is bringing home subway for supper!!  If I felt like it, I would do a happy dance.

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 likes WAY 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 places had 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 guess I better get busy.  Take care and God bless.
