Prep for the Sabbath and beware the Egg Nog.
Today is Friday, preparation of the Sabbath. Today is a mainly cleaning and polishing day. We do extra watering of the animals, so that we can avoid any unnecessary work on the Sabbath.
Mrs. Sifford brought over some Egg Nogg ( a big favorite of our family, especially me!). And I had about a half a glass, maybe less. It is so rich, I can only drink a little. But this time, it messed me up big time. I was in bed within 30 minuites with pretty intense nausea. And everybody else was fine and dandy. Odd, isn't it? I was out through supper and breakfast, and thanks to mom and the children for doing my chores while I was down.
Dad has been playing catch and Hot Box with the children a lot lately. They really enjoy playing with him. It is so fun to watch them.
It is supposed to be 18 degrees on Monday! Brrr, I am hibernating on Monday. It is only supposed to get up to 38 on Sunday, so I took a shower yesterday when it was 60. It is about 70 right now and the children are planning on taking showers today too, before this place goes Artic.
Well, I think I hear beds to be made and floors to be swept, if you'll excuse me.
