The storm has started mid afternoon, the forecast is for 10 inches or more, then freeing rain and sleet.  I would rather it stay cold and to have more snow.  I worked outside this afternoon till I couldn’t feel my fingers.  Charlie helped me move three bales of hay to put in front  of the kitchen as that is where the pipes always freeze.  I left a place for Cornelius but I think he has moved inside the barn  I haven’t seen him in a while but its been very cold so he is probably cuddled up somewhere.


I shut the sheep in the barn tonight and gave them some grain, they won’t like staying in the barn but tomorrow morning I will let them out.  The chickens are huddled together for warmth and today they had extra rations of corn.


I Stopped at FUNK SHUN today to bring a few more things down and stopped  by the Salvation Army on my way there.  I found this beautiful hand painted tray for $.79.  What a bargain and it’s just the kind of thing that I love




I am still working on the bag of crochet pieces and handkerchiefs that I got from Carol.  I saw a project in a magazine some months ago that sewed some together and used them on the dining room able with flowers on it.  It looked like a good idea so I am trying it.  I appreciate all the work that went into these.  In one of the few closets in this house I have a box of crocheted doilies that my Grandmother made, I will have to get on with that sometime soon


.Many thanks for reading my blog on this snowy evening and I hope you have a wonderful evening.    Carole

Love the tray, what a bargain. Hope the weather warms up for you a little, very wet here today but still very mild.

Yes, the tray is lovely! At 6 am we have about a foot of snow, very light and powdery. Cubby wouldn’t go out the back door til I shovelled a little pathway for him, even before I’d had my cup of tea! Will try to go out and deal with the major shovelling bit by bit throughout the day… after the sun comes up!
