Supposedly 9*F here. I can tell ya when I go out I canít wait to get back in. Even doing chore seems to be more chocolate and coffee breaks, the warmth of the cup centered in my fingers, I not sure I want to drink it or hang on.
Do to the cold the bathroom project has come to a couple crawls. One the caulking I was going to use sealing the window trim, I had left it outdoors. Tomorrow I should be able to put the application squeeze on that stuff. Then thereís taking my scribing down the road with me for sawing, only to find getting back I had cut the filler pieces on the wrong side of the line. Might be easier if my glasses fit better; but, but then Iím dealing with brain chill.
Weather forecasters on TV right now are telling of our getting sub zero temps over the next couple days. Whoopee! I chopped the Hell out of the stock tank yesterday to let the red a$$3d Devil out of my system. Guess I get to do it again tomorrow. Moving hay to day having to peel the frozen crust off consumed a half hourís energy this morning, for dry hay feeding the bulls in their pens. Making a phone call this afternoon I now have a line on some used MacCullock chainsaw parts. It was a once upon a time bargain; but, still good enough for cutting hay bales. While weíve a couple heavier Stihls around, I have found it easier on my arms and balance using this Mac saw trimming limbs while climbing trees. Iíd dislike loosing it before Iíve had the chance to fully wear it out.
On the home home-front, now that I got finally Frieda off and on, now sheís under foot half the time Iím trying to get some work done. But itís alright, Her smiles are brighter and I believe sheís feeling better. Iíll accept that trade off. HmmmÖ! I can remember times when sheíd had paid dearly for being coolly naughty and warmly nice. (grin)
So, this is it looking between the ice cycles figuratively hanging outside the window.

Fern, reckon you could stop by the barn and feed our cows too? It'd be a warm stop for ya, we're supposed to get up to the high 20's today!
I hope that twinkle in Clink's eyes is just a twinkle - 'cause when my dad talks about a twinkle in somebody's eyes, he's usually referring to the pre-child courtship!
Keep yourself warm and don't let any body parts get frostbite ;-)
BTW - did I tell you we got a calf on a bottle now? Young stupid mom. no milk. small 40 lb calfie. The girl loves to feed him!
