All the animals seem to be doing quite fine. We've kept them fed and watered and they all have shelter. Hubby is especially noted for his "always ready" mantra. He actually has a dogpen sitting in our basement garage, just in case the weather became even more extreme and he had to bring in some animals. He's got water-filled buckets in the basement garage and in the tack room plus a heated water trough for the horses. He's always sure to have plenty of feed and bedding. He's a fairly special kind of guy and I'm glad he's mine!
I was so excited about tomorrow. We were going to meet our son halfway between his home and ours and take our granddaughters home with us for the week-end. The disappointment for me is great!! The weather, though, is just too dangerous to be out and about and we have decided to pick another week-end; but I can't help it, I've really looked forward to being with them. I had BIG plans. We were going to bake an angel food cake, make a pizza together and have chocolate gravy and biscuits for breakfast!! I had the doctor station all set up with pills (candy hearts) and salve (homemade moisturizer) and all kinds of medical supplies for them to fix their papaw's strains, sprains, aches and pains. Oh well, it will all happen eventually!!!
Have any of you made snow ice cream yet this year? I haven't yet myself. I may have to assuage my feelings with a big bowlful!!
I've spent most of my day trudging back and forth to the barn. I've been worrying to death over Queenie. She, evidently, got a nail caught in something and was bleeding everywhere. I picked her up and tried my best to clean her nail area and put some aloe heal on it but I've been so nervous about her I've just about froze my fannie off making so many trips out to the barn. I was worried that maybe the other chickens might start pecking her so I took some string and cut up a few chunks of cucumber and put a hole through them. Then I pushed a string through the cucumber and strung some cherry tomatoes then a cucumber then some tomatoes, etc. until I had a nice string of veggies and hung it in the coop. That should keep them too busy to bother my girl. So far-so good!!!
