It's chilly here. This morning was 12 degrees but with the wind chill they estimated it to be in the low single digits. Oliver wasn't a happy boy when it was time to do his business. The Coop Girls aren't in very positive spirits either since we didn't let them out of the coop until a little later. They only stayed out for about a half hour before we scooted them back in. No need in them getting frostbite on their combs. Our high temp today is 22 degrees. A great day to stay inside.
We had a craft show this weekend with our Cobble Hill Farm Handcrafted Soap
products. We were signed up for Saturday and Sunday but there just wasn't much for traffic flow so we opted to pack it up Saturday evening. Of course, it also didn't help that out of 45 vendors, 8 of us sold soap and, what we didn't know until we arrived, the orchard store that we were selling at also sold homemade soap inside their store. I will say, what we have found through the craft shows we've done, is that we still stand out among the other soap vendors and have no problem selling our products, but we need people coming to the show to sell it to.
It was snowing and very windy on our way home from the show last night and we passed an Amish horse and buggy going the opposite direction. As we rode in our warm vehicle with the heated seats turned on I couldn't imagine how chilly that must have been riding in the buggy! And how blinding it would be with the snow blowing from the heavy wind.
Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week? We are potentially getting snow Tuesday into Wednesday which will make it very festive if it comes. After Thanksgiving our Christmas decor goes up. Can't wait! What I wish, however, is that the Holidays didn't zoom by. I don't agree with the retail stores promoting Christmas right after back-to-school is down, however, I do love the festivity of the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The pellet stove is in full swing and the boys have planted themselves directly in front of it. I can't blame them. Today I've spent much of the day picking up my house. I had ingredients for my products get lost in the mail last week and didn't get them until Friday afternoon which meant the remainder of Friday and into Saturday morning I spent making lotions. My house took the fall for it. It looked like a bomb exploded. Today it's feeling much more organized. Don't you feel better when your house is in order? I know I do, it stresses me out to have stacks and piles all over.
Tonight is a relaxing evening spent cuddling with the boys and Cait.
Hoping you all had a wonderful weekend!!
