Winter is fasting coming upon us!
The Sandhill Cranes have returned!
I couldn’t get all of the Sandhill Cranes in the photo; they were scattered here there and everywhere in the disked corn field. But they are back. And they beat the Canada Geese.
I’m sure it won’t be long now before our skies have the sounds of geese talking to each other as they wing their way from the North.
It’s nice we have winter birds. They help brighten the long winter days.
It’s storming here right now. The wind is blowing, tossing the corn here and there, rain is splattering on the windows. I started a fire in the woodstove. The house was decidedly cold.
Later on today I will need to gather my fire making things, kenneling, starter sticks, smaller logs and then the large logs that keep the flame going. I will have to go down to the other house and do the same thing there. We are making headway at that house, but there is at least another week to go.
Also Terry found out that the furnace system needs to completely be replace. “(If it isn’t one thing,” my Momma used to say,”it’s another!’) That means a possiblya new furnace and new duct work. SIGH!
My theory is: to do one job it always takes at least five other jobs so you can get the original job completed.
Gradually we will make it…one step at a time.
