We cleaned up all the snow after supper last night and ended up with about 10 inches with a lot of wind. HB did the driveways and I cleaned the doorways at the barns,and house. We came in and the girls had finished the dishes and were waiting to go have there baths. Justin he was feeling better and Jayne had a bad headache.
Today I got up and made oatmeal muffins for breakfast.
We had maple sausages with oatmeal that I put on in the slow cooker before going to bed. I got HB off and running and went to get the weeones up for school.
When I went to get Jayne up she still had a bad headache,so she stayed home for the day. She got up and had a bite to eat then layed back down for awhile. I decided to go and help her tidy up her room with her. She likes it when Mom helps clean and move around her room.
I did a few loads of laundry and made a new batch of powdered laundry detergent. (I was getting low)
Tonight Shepperds Pie with toss salad and homemade bread is on the menu for supper. (I also put bread on to rise this morning)
This afternoon I want to get the rest of my slippers finished. I received some phentex (I think it is spelled that way) yarn from a friend for Christmas and wanted to get them done ASAP. for myself.
Jayne finished her next Plastic canvas project and I will post those pics tomorrow of the Halloween decor for her Bedroom door.
I wanted to get them something new for a crafting thing for the girls to do. I think I have decided on Aunt Marthas Flour sac.
Have any of you ever done these before. When I was about 9 or 10 my aunt( the one I always talk about that has passed on now) did some with me. But since then I do not really remember to much. I do remember it being a whole lot of fun and remember making a small doll's blanket quilt with it.
Well I should go and put another load of laundry in.
Take care and Stay warm,as our temps are going down again tonight to -20. So I guess we will have to be keeping wood in all night again.


  1. Brrrrrrr that sounds incredibly cold to me! There has been sickness here too...the tummy bug....yuck!
    Hey I made some laundry soap too...the liquid kind and have my first load with it in the wash. I hope it works:) If not...I'll have to try your powdere version:):):) Have you ever tried the liquid kind?
    BTW: I have a public daily life blog can find it in my profile:)

  2. Brrr! That is cold. I hope that you all stay warm. I hope that the rest of you don't get sick. It isn't fun.

    Do you like the powdered laundry soap? I have only made the liquid. Well, I best get leftovers in the oven. We have been gone all day.

    Have a great evening.
