The Weather Outside is ...............................

frightful ........ so I've been spending a lot of time layering up before heading outside to put wood in the furnace and check on the animals. It's sooo cold , we don't usually have this type weather until Jan. and it's been awhile since it's been this cold for so long. The sun beaming through the trees looks beautiful , but doesn't warm things up much. Strange , how the rays seem to point at my eyes and mouth in this photo.

I check on the animals several times a day to make sure their water hasn't frozen. I still have Goatee hanging around , he actually has a nice beard/goatee now , it's solid white. I tried to get a descent pic of his goatee , this is the best one I could get. He loves having his picture taken and is very photogenic , wish he wasn't so rowdy.

The guineas have been going inside the chicken coop at night to sleep since it's cold. Each morning they head out to field and look for bugs in the frosty grass. Curious J had to be picked up from school yesterday , his teacher thinks he's getting pinkeye , since it's been going around in his classroom. He's with me again today , my daughter will have to take him to the doctor before he can go back to school. The weatherman is predicting an inch of snow tomorrow followed by some freezing rain and sleet , so he'll probably be with me the rest of the week. He's keeping me busy , keeping him busy (LOL). Hope everyone is doing well and staying warm.

~ Many Blessings ~

Hi JoyceAnn - nice picture of you. We have been experiencing warmer than usual temps around here lately with a lot of rain and hurricane winds. Don't know what kind of winter we'll be getting around these parts.

Oh you look so cute all bundled up - but cold, so cold. The animals are lucky to have you to look after them.

We're colder than normal right now too. Hope your sunshine will warm things up a bit. Good luck staying thawed out!
