Sunday Homestead Update

We woke up to -8F this morning.  Brrrrrrr.  So there will be extra barn chores today as we help make sure the animals are all handling it well.

I have previously done a thorough post on how we keep animals warm in very cold temperatures and you can read it by clicking here.  I also have done one specifically on keeping our chickens in the cold which you can read by clicking here.

Since it is so cold today, we decided to have a PJ day and work on making our hand-dipped beeswax candles.  We only have a few left from our last batch, so it was time to make some more.  What better time than a frigid winter day?  I posted how we make our candles a few years ago and you can read it by clicking here.

The woodstoves are burning, the house is cozy, there is beautiful snow outside and the farm animals are all taken care of, so now I am going to take my hot cup of tea and go help with the candle dipping project.  Have a great Sunday!
