So with this weather we have been having I am tired.

  • Tired of putting on 5 layers of clothes.
  • Tired of having goosebumps.
  • Tired of hearing my son ask if he can go play outside.
  • Tired of hauling water to the chicken coop just for it to freeze up an hour later.
I know enough complaining. Good thing I don't live up north! I don't think I could handle that.

Speaking of Chicken coop. I have felt sorry for my chickens since their in molt. Last night I bared the cold and searched in the dark for the heat lamp they used when they were chicks and rigged it up out in their coop. I hung the lamp to keep them a little warmer. Not sure how much it will help but hopefully they are smart enough to go under it for warmth. You would think they would freeze to death with only 1/2 the amount of chicken feathers on them but they don't. Their a lot more tough than I am! I think I'll go home tonight and start making them sweaters...
