    10-4 on that one Stan. Lol Hope your package arrives safely and soon so you don't have to wait too long.

    Corgi, I hope things work out for the best with your friend and will add another prayer for her , her family and friends. I am glad to hear your mother is so upbeat about the new place and sounds like she is going to be just fine.

    My mom will be moving up to Columbus, Ms. From Slidell, LA. This weekend. She is moving back into the home she was in when she decided to move down here and in with my brother. She so so very excited as well.

    Tj, hope you are able to make more progress with the project and able to share it with us soon.

    MR, looking forward to seeing the updates of your progress.

    HP, hope your friend can enjoy the chickens and horses through the bitter cold I'm sure she is not accustomed to.

    Koolio, I hope you are horse injury free for a while to keep your nerves relaxed..

    I have been trying to catch up on the poop duty for my daughter since we had so much rain over the weekend and then the cold. Now with wife working outside the home, Amber has to keep an eye on Jessa inbetween doing school work so she doesn't have the freedom to go out there. MIL was suppose to watch Jessa onher days off so Amber can focus on school all day, but she hardly came out of her room yesterday. I popped off about it last night and she said she told Amber to bring her in there with her(MIL) and I told her she can't expect a 2 year old to lay around like old people all day and watch tv. She needs to be able to go play and if she can't do what she said she would then I need to find a daycare or babysitter. I am not going to put all of that on Amber and impede her learning. I told DW if this was how MIL expects to handle this then she will quit and I will get a second job.

    We will see how it works today and tomorrow as MIL goes back to work tomorrow.

    On a good note to finish, I hauled 3 wheel barrow loads of poop out of the pasture and started on building a dog house for my wife's outside dog.

    Hey all! Back to school today...albeit 2 hours late!

    Had yesterday off...and boy did it fly! Why don't I ever get more done?

    We HAVE BABIES!!! Twin boys born yesterday 7:00am. I got to name them...Chilly and Willy!

    When at home, I will share some pics. They are really cute!

    Not much new here. Just trying to stay warm. It's nine degrees currently. A REAL warm up! LOL The horses seemed to be of last night.

    I spent a lot of time with DH yesterday...napping, movies....just nice hanging out with each other. Ya know? This whole thing has actually brought us closer together...which I didn't realize how much we had started 'doing our own thing' until now.

    More flooding occurring in our building! Not good!

    Well, all for now.

    Stay warm my friends!

    Oh Corgi so sorry about your friend. I had hoped she was on the mend.

    Nicker: Chilly and willy LMAO pictures please.

    We are back to our usually rainy Vancouver but it is better than the alternative. My friends in Saskatchewan had temps of -52 with the wind chill the other day. EEK!!!!

    Reading posts to catch up; so much happening,so many projects, so much on everyone's plates. Every single one of you: encouragement/good thoughts/thinking of you. Nicker, love "Chilly & Willy"! Look forward to pics. MR, your huge project makes mine pale in comparison,but much luck to us both. Rick, how old is this MIL? She can't that much older than in a room all day?

    Fun good thing to share: a resident & I have been for awhile exchanging books back & forth (mostly history, although she's trying to get me into some good novels too). Today I returned some books & lent her one of mine. She gave me a bag of new borrows then asked if I knew anywhere where she could take old children's books, alot form the 1920s-1930s. I suggested an antiques bookstore, to start with anyway. She had alot of good stuff. While glancing thru, I saw a muslin children's book of "Black Beauty" (3 pages, a "synopsis", high points if you will, w/illustrations)...1914!!! In rather good shape, 3 little scribbles as a child would do (one is Ellen's maiden name; she must've gotten this from her grandmother). I asked her to let me know, when she found out, what is is worth, & I would try to buy it. She gave it to me! I came home & put it between 2 sheets of acid-free drawing paper.

    So, ok...I received a wonderful, loving gift (for which gave & received hugs). I can put it in a glass frame. But..& I admit this: Would like to know a monetary value, as am not a rich person (in fact, am very under-rich). Any ideas, anyone know about this sort of thing. Oh, it's a pretty little thing of itself, "Black Beauty" after all, & 1914 just blows my historical mind...after Civil War, pre WWI, how cool is that (well, it has @ it's beginning, a statement of original name "Nig" that the girl changed to Black Beauty, which of course is totally wrong, but, this was 1914 & there it was).

    Had to share this 'tho. I can take pics if anyone wants to see.

    It's getting warmer, hopefully, is here for now.

    Had a great day at school today...but I am BEAT!! Being off two and a half weeks has made me a wimp!

    Ok, here's Chilly a day old.. I honestly don't know how she is going to sell these....or how I am going to let her! Hahaha

    Sorry,that was Willy, the littler one...this is Chilly, the first one and bigger. Both boys.

    Moms buck mark, the father, is supposed to be 'it' so these babies maybe a good sell. They were born this time of year for 4-h projects! I hope they are cuter than dad....he's just plain old ugly! Hahaha

    Corgi, still praying for,you and your friend.

    It hit 17*. It actually felt warm, haha. More pipes broke in our building....ugh! Glad I'm on the top floor...I just lost heat, but we were ok, 24 kids talking all day....makes a warm room!

    LaDonna-so sorry to hear of this turn for your friend-prayers for strength to get through this for all concerned. Glad that your Mom is happy w/her new place. Sometimes we have to look for the good of the day.

    I cooked a ham today, so will have lots of good meals over the next few days. We are in the 50's for highs here. Went to town w/DH today, so have double corral cleaning tomorrow. Maverick continues to get stronger & is learning the household routines-hopefully we can get out for another good walk tomorrow.

    Rick, any news on if the horses can stay on your property yet? I am so glad that we live in an area that we can pretty much do what we want. There are restrictions on how many hooved animals we can have here, but it's quite a few as it's a nice piece of acreage. I'm not going to be pushing the limits, for sure!

    TJ-those work relationships can get pretty stressful, just try to send your mind elsewhere & hope you don't get drawn into all the drama. Good for you on getting such a neat book-are there a lot of drawings?

    To all suffering through the Polar Vortex-hope you stay warm & keep your power & it leaves sooner than predicted.

    Nicker - Chilly and Willy are adorable! Hmmmmm.... I wonder if DH would notice if I put a few goats in the barn.

    I am sorry your weather is so miserable. It is hard to see those frozen eyelashes, but it won't hurt the horses. Ours have iced up eyelashes for about 5 months of the year. We actually have some warmer temps up here and might even reach the freezing mark by Friday!! Woo Hoo!! Time to get out the Bermuda shorts!!

    Corgi - any news on your friend??

    Tjtalon - the book sounds very cool!! Lucky you!!
