So, I have not been on the laptop much because it is dying by bits and pieces. The cord is frayed, causing me to type one-handed most of the time so I can . Then, the battery started dying, so I fretted. Finally, now I have taken the battery out. It stressed me to see the capacity of the battery being drained and hopeless because I cannot revive it. So, I just took out the battery. I was shocked at the ease of that operation. I was looking at screws on the back and worrying about being grounded or not. I know just enough to stay out of trouble. Obviously, I don't know enough.
Maggie May has given me an egg each day I have not reported. Patsy Cline needs to step up and start contributing. Thelma gets a pass since she is six years old. I can see everything about her slowing down. Plus, I am still dreaming every day.
It is 23 degrees out right now. I just came in and have not turned on the heater. The hens need hot water right now. Exbf will put together the water heater for them. I think the temperature will be below freezing for the next 48 hours. AND, the wind is blowing something fierce. So, the hens and I will have a long 48 hours to try to keep body and soul together and the pipes from freezing. He will probably freeze putting the heater together tomorrow, so I may try a new configuration.
Yesterday, I put on seven boneless, skinless chicken breasts and they are in the refrigerator. Another seven are ready to refrigerate. The last package will go in later this evening. I am using the smaller 3.5 qt. Crockpot for which I paid $3 at a yard sale. I may make some chicken soup for exbf. And pasta salad for me. I am not crazy about my own chicken soup and he does not like meat submerged in pasta salad. Plus, he would rather have something hot on a day like tomorrow will be--single digits.
The church dinner is tonight, so that will be a cold trek outdoors. but Fred will be there with some sort of news. I'm out of here. So, I went there and they cancelled it because it is cold. ???? It is not that cold. It was 25 F.
Right now, it is 13 F ourtside, 40 F in the house on the warmest wall, an inside wall. Well, it may be lower than 40, but that is as low as the thermostat goes. The thermostat remains but the furnace does not work. ugh
How cold is it where you are, and generally where are you located?
