Tuesday Tib bits

Well our cold snap has finally broke. Yesterday and today the temp got up to 4 degrees. Finally a little relief to the wood pile.
It still is so early for those cold temps.

Yesterday I had the girls home from school sick. Jayne had a terrible headache, and Jill was warm. Jill was feeling better today and went back to school, but Jayne still was not up to pare yet so she stayed home with me again.

We got the new primitive Christmas tree up in the dining room with our Western theme. I will get a picture of it soon and get it posted.
I washed the kitchen,and living room floors today as well.

I put some round steaks in the oven, with onion soup mix. I made a pan of fried rice,and a pan of beef fried Mac to go with it for supper.

I think I over did it s little today, as my lower back has been sore for awhile now and it is really bad tonight. I am going to call it a early night and crawl into bed with the hot water bottle.

Tomorrow I hope it is better,as I want to get a bit more cleaning done upstairs.

My Picture Apology

I guess my Ipad is not all that it is cracked u to be..... I finally got to sit and go on our family laptop and checked out my blog, and to my surprise I could not see any of the pictures, and \i am sure that all my fellow bloggers are in the same situation.
I am so sorry for this.

The Weather Outside Is Frightful

Old man winter has sure found us. The temps have dropped in the last week from 0 to -8 at night, to -24 now. It has became to cold to do outdoor work and we need so many layers on.
Inside both fires run steady and I have been cooking a lot on the wood stove.
The wee ones are changing into their heavier coats,mittens ans hats and are getting a little harder to get up in the mornings for school.
We have only a dusting of snow on the ground,but the cold weather is keeping it here.
I can not believe its the first of December already. I have not yet made my christmas cards even starting my christmas baking. My calendar is full or the month. Jill wants to make a new christmas craft this year to put with our gifts we hand out,so I better get on that ASAP.
Last night we were invited to my Hubby's work Christmas party. He is still working for the same company for a little while longer,until the other job is ready. We had a nice time. They served a lovely roast beef supper and a choice of desert. I had cheese cake while Hubby had a chocolate pecan cake. They were to die for.
We sat and talked with friends and coworkers for a couple hours and then headed home. It was sooooo cold, it took most of the ride home just to warm the jeep.

Here we are ready to go to supper.

Today Hubby is gone to the next village to help a friend to put a new window into his mothers house. We both got up early and stocked the fires up, Hubby started his truck and did a quick barn check to make sure everything was ok and left. I made coffee and headed back to my bed to read my daily blogs on my iPad.
I hear the wee ones getting up and will have to go and make breakfast. Justin is working over the road today and Jayne has a essay to work on. Jill and I are going to do some housework, and make a boiled dinner for supper, I also want to do a bit more christmas decorating.
