It stared raining yesterday, turning all the roads into ice slicks. Our road was one solid sheet of ice. There was an accident about 2 miles from us. The car went into a deep ditch that was filled with water. No one was seriously injured thankfully.
Today the temp. is finally up to around 40. Yea! I'm sure it won't last long though. The snow and ice are melting. There's some pretty strong winds blowing right now. I was thinking about going for a ride since it's warm....but now I don't think I will. Wind tends to get the horses riled up and I don't need to get dumped! After I did barn chores, I took a walk in the woods to Storyland Creek. I hadn't been down there in months and it was interesting to see all the animal tracks. As I was walking along, I heard a lot of branches rattling. At first I thought it was deer, then just the wind. Then I realized it was wild turkeys! They were roosting for the night and about ten hens were flying up about 30 feet into the treetops. I stood right under them for a long time. It was interesting to see them so close up.
I finished the star quilt this morning. It turned out really nice. I'm thinking of doing a bigger one in the same style. I'll have to get some pictures to post soon.
I just got over a major writers block. I'm working on the second book in The Christian Cowgirl Adventure Series right now. It's been at a standstill for awhile.
Maybe now I'll be able to get something done.
Alright, I'd better get to work on it!
