@ Miss E.......You'll get about 5 small feeder pans of this in one mix. We usually double everything and then only have to make it up twice a winter. If any questions come up, just holler!

@ Wolf.........your "cabin in the woods" sounds like you really enjoy it, and don't blame you a bit. But I like to feed the birds, if for no other reason, just to see them all congregate and fuss over it! Cardinals, the titmouse, chickadees, etc do not flock together in near a great a quantity as starlings, blackbirds, cowbirds, etc do. So it's a pretty picture for that much "RED" in one group, especially when it snows.

single digit temperatures all day today, dropping to below zero tonight. But I am toasty warm in here with my wood stove cranking out the heat so much that I have had to open my back door for some relief. I don't need any fleece lined under britches just a sharpening of the chain saw and the axe. LOL

Stay warm Wolf! I'll be headed out in about an hour. Roads don't look too bad; however, I did NOT wear a skirt today! I look like little Irish Eskimo girl.

Would you just look at that sun!!! And that thermometer setting on 0*!! Just doesn't seem right. Smh.

We watched the Oak Island curse/mystery on the history channel last night. It's of particular interest to us as we visited Oak Island several years ago. A rich mans toy,so that leaves us watching it on reality TV. Lol
No school today and grand kids stayed up late. Around 2am I sent the youngest to bed even if Lego projects--a lego slice of watermelon, a lego lemonade drink with a straw,even a lego packet of mcdonalds french fries--were still scattered about. The older gk wandered through around 1:30am with an agenda. "Would you order this mine craft game for me? Here's some of my birthday money to pay for it. Please please please". Haven't done it yet but at least Im not paying for it.

I'm always impressed at how quickly the mods clean up this thread. Thanks! There are threads that are really ugly and that is their sole purpose. I'm glad I took the time to take a look at this one.

Yes, quite toasty. I had a big breakfast of ham, eggs, grits, toast and jelly then laid back down for 2 more hours of zzzzzzzzs without even any covers. Then went out in that bitterly cold wind to check on the chickens and let Dog out to the tree. The chicken's back half of their 24' by 24' building is out of the wind and they had already given me 3 more eggs than what I had eaten. I should get another 6 or 7 this evening. The light over the water works well. Dog was happy to get back from the tree and hover in front of the stove. Life is Peaceful and we are Blessed.

The one reason I like my secuded homestead so much is that I worked in downtown New York city, Chicago, Philadelphia, Houston, and Dallas for 3 years making Y2k work.

Just wondering if you ever cook on that wood stove?
As for those big cities? No thank you. Too big for me. We've lived 19 places and lived in smaller city subdivisions and that's fine. The seclusion you have ? Maybe, but not the Alaska type of total seclusion. Better half has lived in an additional 5 or 6 states (many living quarters) with this current job. So we've done our share of packing and moving.

yes, I cook on the wood stove from time to time. Generally things that would cook slow in a dutch oven such as green beans-potatoes, chili, etc. I typically just leave that sort of thing on the stove and dip it out as I want it, then when I tire of that; the chickens get the rest.

Here is hoping that everyone is as warm and safe as Dog and I are. I worry that my chickens may not be at minus 4 degrees. A heat wave is coming though and the temperatures should be back above freezing by noon tomorrow. We still won't be skinny dipping. For one thing, we are not exactly skinny at 6 foot and 210 pounds.

While watching TV last night, it was plain to see that America is obsessed with youth and losing weight. Almost every commercial was either Jenny Craig, Nutri-system, or Weight Watchers and the rest was about buying life insurance or pills. Of course they had to throw in Safe-step walk-in tub, and hover-around. It made me want to get up and eat a half a package of Oreo cookies. I am sooooooo tired of knowing that Marie has lost 50 pounds.

Good morning AW and Dog.
Wow...sooooo cold. We have a Kitty cat that "came" with the house. I don't like animals in the house, but I couldn't leave this little thing outside. I'm up having coffee and Kitty is curled up in front of the fire.
Now, if I could learn to pass this compassion onto humans I might grip society a little bit better. Thinking I've been around so many meanies out in this old world has gotten to my heart. Something to work on.
I hope all is well, warm and safe.
Blessings!

LOL. But Marie is feeling oh so sexy in that red dress. It's the New Years loss weight commercial wave. Good news--- it usually doesn't last much pass Jan. 31.

Good Morning to all! I watched the sun slog over the hill a bit ago and it looked like a small fire which had been kindled on a frozen pond. It didn't rise in the usual fashion as one great fireball, but seemd to burn several small holes through the bitter cold sky in bits and pieces. I am reminded of the first lines of Emily Dickenson's poem,Day.'I'll tell you how the sun rose, a ribbon at a time.' I do enjoy watching the sun rise each morning. I am reminded that it is another opportunity to try and be a better person than I was yesterday.

I hope everyone stayed warm last night. I am thankful for my warm home and also thankful that the electricity didn't go out during the night. I heard that some folks lost power and that could be life threatening in such cold.
I'm sure Miss E stayed toasty warm in those wool bloomers. LOL!

AW and dog no doubt were warmed by that good wood fire. I agree with you, AW on the diet infomercials. They are designed to play on the guilt of all the people who overindulged during the holidays, and now we too can look like Marie if we will only buy some fancy, over-priced food. I have never understood how buying more food could possibly help me lose weight. That seems backward to me. If I were trying to lose weight I would be trying to get my mind off food, not buying more!
And Miss E is right, the commercials have to end in time to ply us with Valentine candy. LOL!

Anne, I hope you're still enjoying those grandchildren. But I'm sure you are. I certainly enjoy hearing about them. Those gingerbread houses sounded very unique. You do know how to take an idea and make it your own very creative!

And speaking of creative, I know I am waxing poetic this morning, but some days are like that. LOL!
It is time to start my day and see how much I can get accomplished before the end of Emily Dickenson's poem......a Dominie in Gray, put gently up the evening bars, and led the flocks away.

Stay safe and warm, everyone, and have a great day!
