Tag Archives: Wind Chill Temperature

Monday

Hello everyone!  Seems like time goes by so quickly.  I wanted to give you all an update on Hubby.  He is doing some better.  We did go to the doctor on Thursday.  They did some blood work and we are waiting on the results.

We had a very busy but great weekend.  Chuck and his family came and spent Saturday, Saturday night and Sunday with us.  Irma and her kids were gone to N.C. to see her family.    Her dad has been diagnosed with cancer.  Anyway, Chuck and kids went with us to church on Sunday.  We had a really good crowd at church.  Several visitors, which is very unusual for us.

Today was school as usual.  I had hoped to work on Sam’s quilt but just haven’t gotten around to it yet.  Probably won’t happen today.  I have all the squares sewn together now and am ready to start putting it all together.  I think it looks pretty good.  I will take a picture and show you all when it is finished.  I gave Alexius her quilt this weekend.  She slept under it Saturday night.  When they were leaving Sunday evening, she forgot to carry out her overnight bag.  Chuck carried it out for her.  He asked her if she had forgotten anything.  She said, “No, I got my quilt.”  She wanted to make sure she didn’t forget it.

We have been cold here today.  Morning wind chill temperature was zero when we got up. We did have sunshine though but it still has been cold all day.  I think I am ready for warmer temperatures.  I got a new seed book in the mail today which we have already looked through.  Looking at all that beautiful produce always gives me the fever to go play in the dirt.  Well, it won’t be too much longer (I hope).

Enjoy your evening and God bless.

 

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.
