Way too cold

We made it through the most frigid days over the weekend, ridiculous windchill. The wind just whips across these fields.  We probably burned a whole tree keeping warm.  The chickens seemed to be happier in the colder temps compared to the hot humid summer days. I gave them some warm oatmeal a couple of times a day.  I cooked a ton of food on the woodstove (since it was already hot), did some sewing and we played a lot of board games.  We are an outside everyday sort of family, but other than doing our animal chores and Adrian's waving to cars routine, we were mostly in. I never heard "I'm bored". Other than a family episode of Dr. Quinn, kids had plenty to do without screens.  I'm all set with those windy too cold days, but not done with winter!
