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.


  1. I hope that you all stay warm. We actually have warmer weather moving in, so our fires will be in the morning only. I think we are to get up to 60ยบ.

    Have a wonderful day with your family.


  2. Hi, Jessica! You are having some cold temps, but your house nice and cozy! I want a wood stove so I can cook on it. Your husband's Christmas party sounds like a lot of fun.

    I hope you had a wonderful day!


  3. COLD! You are really cold. I'm glad you all are staying warm. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  4. It sure is cold in your neck of the woods! It was up near 80 degrees here yesterday. Crazy for this time of year. Sounds like you had a great time with hubby at the Christmas party. Hope you have a great day.
