Dec 12th to Dec 20th..
I lost my post, I do not understand how I lost my post, but all my little daily notes are gone.. that will teach me to do it in a different format instead of working the post here in wordpress daily and then saving it as a draft.
I broke my tooth and called and got in to have my filling fixed on weds, the tooth didn’t have any major damage, it just needed a filing and the missing bit of filling redone. It helps when you have a working relationship with your clinic, I called in that morning and they had me in that evening and fixed right up.
However the freezing on my face did a number on me.. I mean it was crazy, my whole side of the face that had the freezing hurt for days with very close to migraine headache for the first 48 hours and even a push of air on my face on day three could put me in tears.
The simple truth is I did not do much, I was so glad I had posts already done for the blog to share and just have very quiet/no light/careful days.
My Christmas present from hubby arrived this week, my new camera
Then Saturday came and what a day it was.. it warmed up, the sun shined down, we were off the farm for a touch, needed to do this and that.. including dropping off our senior packages.
We had work to do outside while the weather warmed up.. the warm up melted out little patches of green that sent the chickens into hunt mode 🙂
Sunday hubby slept in and I took to the outside to get extreme close-ups in a hoarfrost delightful photo session.
We spent the afternoon setting up a new bird feeding station that is done so that I can hopefully take some delightful bird photos this winter, so far it’s not worked at all but I will give it time 🙂
Hubby had slipped and was a touch sore so we were taking it careful, he got to the physiotherapy and we got some answers and he is already well on the mend, we were already doing great on our own in getting it better, a follow-up is booked after the new year!
Picked up my old glass frames that have my new prescription so now I have two glasses and can switch them on and off for farm vs town. I liked my older ones very much and wanted to have the freedom to choose.
We did an extra feed run on Tuesday and I have plans coming.. The Christmas box’s have been arriving, one from Hubbies mom, one from my mom and one came in earlier from Big Brother and family. hubby and I are only doing stockings, our big gifts have already arrived but we will pretend and get our photos with them 🙂
I was at the store and I did do some stocking up on some basic’s that tend to be on sale on this time of year, baking supplies typically. I was utterly shocked at the prices of so many things in the store. Even on sale they are crazy high.
Having said that, I am also watching our pantry slowly but surely getting used up, I counted empty jars and we went though x amount out of freezers and 26 pints worth in the past tend days plus cellar goods. I know that is what its there for and its a good thing to be eating it.. it just drives home that point harder to me that I must! have a good garden year in 2019 as I no longer have two year plus on a number of my homegrown staples.
I have not decided what I want to do about that.. do I buy from the store to restock, or do I wait it out and see what 2019 brings does in regards to fresh eating, putting up 12 to 24 months worth of the basic’s depending on what is needed. We will see.. I think it makes more sense to see what my growing year is..
Its been a nicely quiet week but the freezing rain is coming today and we will see how it goes. I will be going out on the ice that is already out there and getting a few extra things done before we lose the light.
