Yesterday morning I woke up to a rather colorful sunrise. It was a good morning – we celebrated with chocolate chip pancakes which made the boys VERY happy. Although the scenery was very beautiful, it made my stomach uneasy… Pink in the morning, Sailor’s warning. It was a windy day and as the day went on – temperatures dropped rapidly. Matt went hunting that morning and saw nothing. Disappointing. The cold gloomy day just made it into a lazy day. Picked up a rocking chair for the baby’s room off of Craigslist, picked up a pizza for dinner and that was it! The low was 19 with a real feel of 3! Setup some space heaters in the boys’ rooms to make sure they were warm enough, stocked the fire, and snuggled in for the night with a scarey movie.
This morning, although was still cold, was one for celebrating. Matt went hunting again this morning and brought us home a 7-pointer! His biggest buck to date!
It was a nice looking one, too. Since we have plans tomorrow, we went ahead and processed him up today. We got 45lbs ground, 4pkg of steaks (24 total), and 1pkg of ka-bob meat. Another nice addition to help feed our family throughout the upcoming year.
Looks like it’s going to be down in the teens again tonight and I still have a kitchen to clean up, boys to put to bed, and a slew of other evening chores. I better get to it so I can snuggle into bed with a good book at a decent hour. Stay warm Everybody!!
