More Snow

We had beautiful temps here the last couple days, it was in the upper 50's and lower 60's!!! However this morning, its back to winter, cold, windy, and snowing! We had gotten rid of almost all of the ice and snow, just had patches left, and now its 10 degrees out, and the ground is turning white again...not very white, but there is a dusting on the ground, and its still snowing. Except for the vast amount of mud that we had yesterday, I loved that it was so warm! I know, its still Jan, so I can't expect spring to be around the corner, but would have enjoyed a few more days of warmth. Oh well, I guess there are good things about winter too! LOL

I did get my qp's done for the Blush~n~Dusty Yahoo group qp exchange today!! I love this kit of Blushbutters, and enjoyed playing with it again. If you want these two qp's plus the other 18 even more beautiful pages people have made....and any others that come in between now and the 15th of Feb, feel free to join us and contribute at least one qp, and you will receive all of them that come in!! Its a wonderful way to get an album done! My two puts the total up to 20, and we still have half the month to go, I can't wait to see how many we end up with. This is a monthly exchange, using different kits from Blushbutter and Dusty Bear, so come join the fun!!

I think I'm going to be extra tired today, cause we had a disturbed night. We got a call about 12:30 from a cousin, he works at a place that raises chickens for the local chicken factory, and he had several chickens that were smaller than the factory wants to use, that he wanted DH to come pick up. We were going to get some new baby chicks this spring, to raise up, and hopefully get our egg production going again, but at this rate, we may not need to, cause we have so many chickens from the cousin. If they start laying eggs, we can keep some of them for that, and then eat the rest. Who knows, other kinds of chickens are probably better for layer hens, but we will see.

At least we can save some money, and not buy as much chicken to eat for a month or two! LOL Course the cousin said they always have chickens that are to small, so I'm sure we will be able to get more, when we need them. It would be nice to not have to buy much chicken at all. The people that work at these places that raise the chickens, sure get a nice side benefit, with being able to have all the to small chickens for free. Course not everyone wants a live chicken to have to butcher, but I never turn down free food....least if its food I will eat, even if it not "ready" to eat! LOL Its not like we are starving or anything, don't get me wrong, but I have a bit of that loving to scrounge in me, that my DH does, so if we can save money, by getting something for free, I'm all for it. That way, just maybe, I'll have a little extra money, for those other little things that usually get put on the back burner.

Anyway, I better get off here, and get some other things done. Have a good day!! Thanks for the wonderful comments, both here and through e-mails!!
