January 25, 2011

It is sunny and cool. The animals are fine. There were no hawks today. The chickens are happy and the turkey is strutting. I can't get completely warm so it must be allergies. I have lots to do, but I am at the computer, typing away. The sun is magnificent. Papaw has been busy: reading the news paper, driving to the post office, and burning trash. It will be below freezing tonight. Hope all is well with all of you.

It is windy and cold. The allergies are acting up because of the wind. Even though it is grey outside, I love all the changes in the weather. It makes life feel like an adventure. The chickens are happily pecking away at the ground and Mr. Gobbles has had his breakfast of mixed grain. He enjoys running with the chickens when they dash out their opened door. He roosts on the back of Mike's pickup or in a branch over the house at night. He adds joy to our lives. We are waiting for Papaw (Dad) to arrive home after his month's visit in California.
I have made banana bread for the occasion. Lots left to do!
