It's January 12, and we are having our coldest weather thus far this winter. It was 31 when I got up this morning, and we warmed up to about 42. Pretty cold for South Texas!
I'm so grateful for a large stack of firewood and our wonderful wood heater in the living room. We've heated with wood since 1980, and I love wood heat! It's constant and soothing.
The insulated clothing industry also has my gratitude. Without layers of warm clothing, tending the animals would be MUCH more painful.
Soup will be on the menu tonight I think. Hooray for soup weather!
