January 16th~someone left the North barn door open!

Thursday, January 16, 2020

The winds today were past bitter cold ,,to stinging and burning. It wouldn't be so shocking if there was snow or an indication, but stepping out in the shelter of the sun room I mistakenly thought Oh it isn't too bad.!!
First mistake..going out without gloves on!
Second mistake,,not going back for gloves!
Third mistake..staying out long enough for finger tips to turn white..kinda scary there!!
I kept putting my hands in my pockets..but wasn't enough.
That's what I get for heading out the door before checking the temp !!
Checked out Blue boys bed area and decided it can in fact wait till it is a bit warmer.
Closed up his tarp to block all the wind and called it good.
Then turned into a Kitchen monster cook! I made two loaves of Banana Bread, from a new recipe I found . No oil or sugar, you use applesauce and honey. All I can say is..it is different.
My son took a bite and nodded his head to comment...mmmm mmmm Chewy..he was right!
Made a batch of protein snack bars for Madison and Tom. Then tomorrow need to make some jelly, I had promised some friends that I would get them a batch made and just found out that they will be around this weekend. So need to get that done. Might even do a couple of batches just to set some back ..who am I kidding! The kids will be over and My cupboard will be bare! Thas ok they need it much more than I do!!
For now after my marathon read-a-thon till 2 AM I think sleep might be really high on my list of things to do right now! I can dream about jelly making and some fresh bread just out of the oven.. Ahh, now I am going to have to make bread! Good thing I love to do that!
Sleep beckons....good night all..sweet dreams of happy things!
