It's been really cold (like -25 to -45) - i've had to plow the drive quite a few times, getting stuck and thankfully saved by passers-by...
We're getting low on wood - next year we need a much bigger stack!
The kids went skating on Sunday (oh ya, and i got stuck in the snow again while there - saved again!) I'm not too bad at skating.. i've volunteered to be BonHomme in our Winter Carnival. Bonhomme is basically a large furry snowman with a red hat that skates with all the children. I figure i'll just keep my mouth shut and be a bit bufoonish on the ice... kids like that kind of thing, don't they?
Today a great stew was made in the slow-cooker. rib finger meat, potatoes, carrots, celery, red and green pepper, onion, garlic, roasted garlic and onion soup mix, tomato juice, coriander, bay leaf, thyme, salt/pepper and boiling water... voila - done in 4 hours on low.
Now, i'm off to participate in an online class for rural program planning... just what we need here.
