Random Thoughts on Thursday

8:05 AM

*  This Arctic blast got here on Monday.  I was room mom on Monday.  We left for school at 8:45am and it was 57 degrees.  By 11:30 it was 35 degrees.  Half of the kids didn't have coats, but only light jackets.  Of course I had wanted to work in the yard to finish up those last minute things before it got so cold.  I thought I had several hours after school.  By 3:00 it was 25 degrees.  And it hasn't been that warm since.   But why did I have to find 20 things that I could have done outside now that it is freezing?  When I could have done them last week when it was 75 degrees.

*  Brrrrrrr.  Yesterday our high was 7.  When I landed back in Denver last night is was -2.  And by the time I got home it was -6.  Not.  Right.

 See, it was so cold and snowy, that even the ladies didn't even go outside.  Bonnie and Dolly stayed in the underneath part of the coop all day.  The older ladies stayed in the enclosed part.  I opened the coop door to let them.  They looked at my like I was crazy.
I don't mind the cold.   But I like to ease into it.  It is the extreme changes that bother me.  

Happy Thursday my friends.

  1. I'm still waiting on it to arrive here, we have been in the mid 70's. I'm trying really hard not to be bitter, but I keep hearing about everyone else that is getting hit by the polar vortex and I want some too ;)

  2. We have cold but not that cold. If I was a cold chicken I wouldn't venture out either. Hope you warm up a bit over there!
