We have been so spoiled this winter. The forcast says that it's not going to get above freezing for the next few days and I think brrrrr. I've been reading how it's been unseasonably warm from the Eastcoast through the Midwest. I could live with this.
Today, we're making candles in school. We soaked cotton yarn in boric acid and then we braid it to make the wick. I'm not sure if we'll use paraffin or beeswax for the candle, maybe a combination. Then we get to go out to the pond to identify animal tracks. Out in the field there were mouse tracks and then the impression of wings in the snow where an owl had come down to grab it's dinner. Maybe I should put this stuff on homeschooler's blog. Our curriculum teaches so many homesteading skills, I just love it.
We sold our pony last night and she's going to a good home. Somewhere where she'll be ridden alot. Now if anyone wants to buy a two-year old pinto gelding.....
Best get the kids up. It's almost nine and they're still sleeping quite soundly. Late, late start.
Have a blessed day.
Love in the Lord,
