Baby, It's COLD Outside

It's pretty cold, all of a sudden. We're having issues. It's too cold to paint the greenhouse. The fan on the wood stove broke, so it doesn't do such a hot job of heating the house. We have a slight problem....

There's ice INSIDE the windows in our house! OK, this is because our storm door blew off quite a while ago - last spring or fall in a big windstorm. So we finally bought a replacement, but since we didn't want white, we had to order one. It'll be here in 2 weeks. Sigh.

The ground is show covered, which makes it hard for the sheep to find what few little spots of green might be left. So we let them have free reign in the backyard sometimes, and in the front yard when supervised. They can still find green stuff. This time, they found the overgrown evergreen bushes on the back porch. We kept meaning to trim this over the summer, but never got around to it. I like this kind of pruning - it doens't take a power tool, and it doesn't take MY time either!

We have Marcia, on the porch, Charlie Brown behind the post, then, from left to right - Pretty Princess Penelope, Linus, Lucy, Daphne and Velma. Chow down ladies, and enjoy the porch!! (I'll stay inside where it's warm, sorry sheepies, you can't come in the house.)
