So what happened? Well, Winter. When you wake up to cold like we had last night you find everything frozen for the first time. The water heaters were in place we just didn't realize it was going to get that cold so we didn't plug anything in. When I say cold I do mean like 13 degrees. Our high today was 34 I think. After having weather in the 60's, that is a really shock. Anyway, I had to go get the cattle up from the pasture. When the weather drops like that our pond can freeze. Not only does that mean nothing for them to drink but it poses a real deadly danger. In the past we have actually lost a calf because it got out on the frozen pond and couldn't get back off the ice. I was alot younger when that happened but It was really hard on us that year and Mom blamed herself. She said she should have known and already brought the cattle up. Well, she didn't know the calves would go on the frozen pond and get stuck but from that point on Mom never lets the cattle stay out there if there is a chance of it happening again.
So after bringing up the cattle Mom and I made two runs ... One to the post office and the other to the grocery store. The post office was to mail off Mom's hair to Locks of Love and the snowflake for Knitpurlgurl's family. The grocery store was to get stuff to have our cookie day. Cookie day is the Day we take to bake a ton of Christmas cookies to give out to all the family and people around your neighborhood for the holidays. When we got back from town Mom and I watched Charlie Brown's Christmas and another show I didn't know the name of ... Mom was nap attacked so we didn't get much else done. We did get the chocolate chip cookies made later and I got a christmas gift in the mail. I got a new magazine called Sheep. It has a bunch of stuff in it and I have been reading up on a few things.... Like honey as a wound antibiotic cream? Yes that was in there ... along with alot of other good stuff.
As for now I am heading off to fall asleep listening to the 5th round
