It's Sunday night Jan. 16th and boy is it cold out! The windchill is supposed to be about - 9 degrees below zero and everyone is shut in the barn tonight. I was able to let Old Blake and Marcus out in the side pasture for a little while this morning and old Marcus was like a bulldozer making trails around the pasture. I put Thistle (that is now minus the headgear) with his 4 girls and they all got to go out this afternoon. Thistle I think was suffering from Snow Blindness for a little while but everyone was happy to run around. I'm putting a picture of Thistle without the metal/wire headgear and he is definitely happier with that off. It did move his horn out about an inch but with such cold weather, we decided it was better to take it off before it bothered his sinus. You know me, if I don't have something to worry about, I can think up something.
I'm also adding a picture of a very happy Rowan. Tonight she came to YaYa's for a sleepover and after supper I gave her a candycane tootsie-roll lollipop. Well she hit her poor wobbly front tooth and it started to bleed....crying and needing to go home! I took her up to the farmhouse and she sat in the bathroom with Mommy who she finally let pull her tooth! 2 minutes later a smiling Rowan showed me her tooth in a kleenex. Whewwww that was such a relief! She returned home with me and now she is asleep in my bed with her little tooth in her toothfairy pouch. Papa said the Tooth Fairy would probably pay more to get her tooth here at our house!!!!! We will see how much better she does here than at home! HAHA!
Declan stayed with me this afternoon and had a nap while Rowan, Darcy and Todd went to Weston to a birthday party for one of Rowan's little friends. Yesterday I worked in Stratton taking care of a little 96 yr. old and did a 6 hr. shift. It snowed the whole time I was there and it was pretty slippery coming home. David came up to feed my dog Lettie last night and he plowed out to the barn this morning. Tomorrow I will have to bring down wood and fill our woodbox. We have very cold weather here for awhile and sleet/freezing rain for Tuesday/Wed. I am getting a new car and planned to get it this week but I'm going to put it off till next week. I am not going out in bad weather to get a new car and slide off the road.
I have been working at the Tasha Tudor Museum helping Amy with lots of processing information from the Charter Membership Drive. I love working at the Museum and at the Rookery. Well I have to close for now and go to bed. Darcy and Declan will come have breakfast with Rowan and I in the morning. Jonathan has to work this Monday because of the Martin Luther King Day. Mt. Snow has been very busy this week-end and everyone has tomorrow off.
Goodnight from Maybelle MaMa
