Spring

Friday these beautiful red winged blackbirds stopped by our feeders for a little snack.  They are usually the first birds to return in the spring.  They are a week earlier this year than last year.  Hopefully, that means an early spring.   However, this morning was no indication that spring is on its way.  Wind chill temperature -10 degrees with snow on the ground.  Well, the snow is gone now and the wind chill now is 5 degrees so we are warming up some.

Not much going on here.  I have started work on Sam’s quilt.  I have all the 5 x 5 in. squares cut out and am ready to start sewing them together.  School has went well this week.   Did I mention to you all about the last batch of homemade laundry soap I made using the laundry bar soap instead of fels naptha?  Well, those of you who have been reading my blog for a while know that in the past I have had trouble with the homemade laundry soap.  My clothes seem to get a dingy look and the towels became really non-absorbent.  I know, strange stuff, but strange happens a lot here.  I guess it is our water that causes these problems.  Well, so far I have had no problems using this batch.  It is a little bit different recipe than I have tried before but I think the real difference is using homemade laundry bar soap.  I will try to remember to keep you all updating as to how it is doing.

Well, I better get busy.  Church tonight and the menu is baked potato bar.  Sounds delicious to me.  I really like baked potatoes.  Enjoy your Sunday and God bless.

Friday

Hello everyone!  I hope you all are having a good week so far.  We have definitely had an assortment of weather types here this week.  The first of the week was beautiful, warm.  Our temperature one day was 70 degrees.  It felt like spring.  I hung clothes out on the line.    Then the rain came-in buckets.  We had heavy downpours of rain and high wind.  Now the cold is here.  Our temperature this morning is 10 degrees.  We have wind gusts of 50 mph, wind chill temps below zero, and snow on the ground.  It is very cold.

School has went well this week.  On Wednesday, we helped a friend by changing some light fixtures.  They are moving into a new place and are doing some small upgrades to the place before they move in.  We took our school with us.  As I have said before, this is one of the things we love about homeschooling.  School adjusts to our schedule not our schedule adjusting to school.  It was a nice day.  We did a lot of catch-up as we had not really seen them in a while.

Well, I guess that’s about it.  Stay warm and God bless.
