Old man winter has made his way to Oklahoma again. It wasn't the pretty white snows that caused alot of problems but the thick ice that coated anything and everything and in return made for quite a huge power outage. The nearby town was completely dark for days and still there are a lot of homes without power. We were lucky enough to have ours restored late this afternoon but it is still flickering and I wouldn't be surprised if it goes out again.
Of course this lil' one thought nothing of it as he had his own personal flashlight and made sure he joined in all the activities.
Riding in his PaPa's old feed truck to take care of the little bottle calves was part of his chores!
He tried to offer them some hay but they aren't quite old enough for it just yet.
Bottles with warm milk now that hits just the right spot!
Feeding the birdies is also on the list.
Off in the distance are 3 deer grazing for a little something to eat.
The trees are encased in ice and they are a pretty sight at night although sunshine would be a great sight to see. It's been a bit on the bleak side here.
The cows are staying well fed with extra grain besides the bales of hay. Inside tonight I plan to enjoy the overhead lights and hook a little on a challenge rug. I sure don't know how those pioneer women did it so long ago in their sod homes with just an oil lamp. Makes you appreciate the modern conveniences that we take for granted today! Bless all those men who have worked non-stop restoring so many of us with power and are still working to restore those that are still without.
Hope your staying safe and warm tonight and being thankful for all the many blessing we have each day.
