It is cold outside. Powdered snow covers the landscape. It is gorgeous outside. The sun goes down early and the temperature drops. We woke up earlier this week because our puppy was crying because she was cold. The furnace has gone out sometime in the night. The machine that feeds the sawdust into the furnace jammed because of ice forming on some of the sawdust. The furnace went out because there it was empty. Thankfully that has not happened in a couple of years. It was cold inside the house. It took over 6 hours to warm the house back up once the restarted the furnace. I lite heat candles in the house and turned the oven to heat the house back up, While the furnace was being restarted.
This is the time of year I catch up on sewing and mending. I love to read a lot. I have been a book-worm all of my life. I buy a lot of books to read during this time of year. I look up things on-line. I am trying to teach myself to crochet and to bake bread this year. I will post later on that.
I am such a fan of Mother Earth News. Here is a great article about planting flower with your vegetables. We have never done that before. It is something to read up on and to look into it.
