They were jumping and romping and loving the snow one minute, and holding up their back feet the next - our temperature was "feeling like -8 degrees" outside. I didn't feel it of course. Having had -26 over the past winters, I guess I was thinking it was somewhat decent out, ha ha!
After getting a much needed walk, I started putting together homemade herbal tea bags for Son. He got a message to me that he was sleeping more often due to sickness, so the Mom that I am, put a "get well soon" box together for him. I also included a nasal spray (Breathe Again) for him. To me, it's the next best thing to using a neti pot. I included thyme tea as well. It helps the body break down and remove mucus from the body.
More snow arrived last night. Not much, but enough to make driving difficult. School closed, but Hubby still has to go to work, so I do worry when he drives his one hour route to work.
The pups love the snow. It takes me longer to get them to do their business first thing in the morning now. Zuri is the worst. She wants to romp and play, and then soon remembers why she got me up, ha ha!
The chickens have been getting winter treats of over-ripe bananas, come cabbage ends, over-ripe apples and so forth. It helps maintain their health over winter, without making homemade suet cakes and what not.
The girls helped me get the house chores done yesterday. For the most part anyway. Today will be a more peaceful, relaxing, snowed in, kind of day. I'm already writing out our meal plan for starting this weekend.
I better get this posted and toss a log on the fire.
