[cold temps at sunrise]

everyone in the northeast woke up this morning to some frigid temperatures.. we were prepared.. last night, i got the chicken coop buttoned up as tight as i could with lots of extra bedding.. ran out first thing, turned on their light for extra heat and gave them some sunflower seeds and suet.. i know they are winter hardy hens, but i still worry about them.. and i know winters here in the northeast can & will get much colder.. we will see -20 mornings, i'm sure..

i cleaned all the ash out of the wood stove last night, so it would burn hotter.. brought in a pile of hickory.. the best wood for cold snaps like this.. it burns so very hot and slow..

so now i can sit beside the fire with 3 lazy cats curled up comfortable, soaking up some toasty wood stove heat and enjoy my morning cup of blueberry tea..

We could do with some cool here today. Forecast is for 41C. A friend of mine sent me a pic of their thermometer in South Australia yesterday 53C. No end to the drought in sight.

Sounds like an ideal day to spend inside in front of a gorgeous fire. No doubt you have a book on hand, if not let me recommend "The Gentleman from Moscow".
