Random 5

 
1.  This time of year I find myself dreaming of spring and spring means chicks! Wish I could talk this gal into going broody, but it isn't that easy. I will dream instead, of the chicks we will purchase.

2.  Days like today have me dreaming of warmer weather too! I find that it is a privilege not to have to break up water for the animals on a daily basis! Hello Spring, are you listening? Come quickly!
 
3.  There is an upside to cold weather and that is homemade soup!
 
4.  My garden is in the planning stage right now.
 
5.  We ordered more gas today, it costs fifty cents a gallon more than it did last week! Adding insult to injury, costs aren't expected to come down anytime soon.

  2. I'm looking forward to the spring chicks too. I was just thinking of that today while cleaning the bathroom because that is where we brood them for the first 2 or 3 weeks. Have a great weekend!

  3. I so enjoy a hearty bowl of soup on a cold day! Nothing like it!
    I am dreaming of Spring, too! It feels like Winter has been here forever!
    I am debating about having a garden this year. I usually do ... but last year I skipped it. My husband missed it.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Soup cooking just makes the house smell good. It does seem like the endless winter this year. Last year was a very bad gardening year here, it was so wet! Hope you have a great weekend too and thanks for visiting us!

    1. My problem is always the gardening catalogs! I want everything I see! Tomatoes are always a must though. We are doing the raised beds, It uses less space and produces so much better. Wishing you a great weekend too and thanks for visiting us!

  6. That's what I'll do - plan my garden. Only good part of winter is soup and boots.

  7. ...sounds like you could use a good wood burning stove -- I did hear heating oil was on the rise due to the cold winter. Yikes!
