Tuesday morning Estelle had a surprise waiting in the barn. These little lambs are about two hours old at the time of this photo. They (ram lamb and ewe lamb) are still a bit damp and just learning where mom keeps the food.
I spent a fair amount of the week canning another 21 quarts of potatoes and 60 pints of various type of dry beans. That makes it fast and easy to make a meal for one. And it helps heat the house to do this type of canning in the winter when the cold comes.
Then I organized the yarns that I had spun that are for sale.
And the cold has started. It is now below freezing and last night we got a smattering of snow. It is supposed to increase throughout tonight and we may wake up to 1-3″ of snow. But Monday the rains will be back so it will quickly melt. In this region, we aren’t used to these cold temperatures, so it’s nice it doesn’t stay cold a long time. February is usually our harshest weather.
