Old Man Winter Moved In

Old man winter moved in last night with a dusting of white magic to cover the grounds. He brought his gusts of wind with him & before he left he blew over the homestead outhouse tool shed. Leaving quite a mess to cleanup before feeding the creatures today. The containers of creature food were over turned leaving their vittles scattered about the inside of the outhouse. Oh but the creatures had to be cared for in spite of this.

The outhouse tool shed was stood back up before the days close & cleaned out. Cement blocks were put on the floor to help weight it down. All in a days work. Next on the chore list was to get gas for Lucas. I finished pumping the gas & got in the truck to get the cash to pay the store keeper. While shutting the truck door old man winter blew another gust of wind blowing the truck door shut faster catching my hand in the door as it closed. I can say it HURT. Not easy shifting the truck driving back to the homestead but I got there with hand swollen & thumb turning black. After pulling & tugging I got the ring off my thumb making the pain worse. As you can guess this put a wrench in my plans to work on my creations today. I am not a fan of winter so I was happy the white magic blew away so fast. The kids are all here tonight but I know soon Laken & her friend will be heading out. So I must be going to visit with them.

Blessings Til Next Time!

Things to be thankful for:
Were safe & warm.
Prayer answered for a precious little one
of a sweet blogger.


  1. Oh my, glad the critter coop wasn't harmed by the outhouse blow looks pretty close! Hope your hand feels better soon, that had to hurt (nothing broken I hope). We had very strong winds (not damage but did loose electric that same night)....Hugs, Traci

  2. Nothing can hurt worse than a smashed hand. I would have been crying all the way home. Hope it feels better soon and that that dang wind leaves you alone:( -Steph-

  3. I did that once, it is so painful. Take care of yourself! Hope everything goes well for Friday and your weekend. God Bless You and your children.

  4. Oh ouchie... I know that hurt. I hope it heals fast so you can get to creating. We've got the low low temps too, but not winds that strong. Stay well and warm :0)

  5. Hope your hand heals soon! Glad you were able to get your shed back up, I really like that shed and your coop!

  6. I swear I've asked you for your email before. Ususally it links to my email through your comments on my blog, but it's not. I must have lost it. Can you give it to me again please? I love to email those who make comments on my blog:) Thanks. -Steph-
