A tad nippy here...

Camryn here:
It's a tad nippy here, we're having some kind of Artic Polar thingie goin on.  So, you won't even be seeing my cute little head sticking out of the barn door napping.  I ventured out for a moment, didn't even leave the patio and headed back in for good!!!   The kitties are curled up in their warm Santa beds napping (cept when Mom came down to give us all extra's before lunch while Lincoln napped)  I'm tucking into lots of yummy hay, no need to even lift my head cept to breath.  Oh, I did venture out and lift my tail on the patio a few times,  Mom did take note that I mainly did that in the barn (oops).  She suggested I go out into the paddock to go pee, something bout it freezing and me not knowing how to ice skate I guess.  Me n the kitties are very thankful for our heated water buckets, Mom was thankful that she'd filled them this morning.  Cause when she went to top off my big bucket the water was frozed (again)!  Dad had even added a special heater thing just this weekend too.  So despite the zubzero temps Mom did end up sweating a bit hauling a few 5 gal. buckets from the house.  Tomorrow suposed to even colder, they're talking minus degrees in the double digits without factoring in windchill.  It's way windy here up on our hill, so it'll be even colder!!!  Some news helicopter flew over as Mom hauled the buckets in her lil red wagon.  Wonder if she'll be on the news, I won't be for sure as I was inside eating as Mom worked.
Oh, Lincoln was over today.  So having had her lil man fix the water thing didn't upset her to terrible much :)
Sad note, one of the horses I rode with sometimes in the summer had to cross over the rainbow bridge last night. Sammy was a very handsome Kentucky Mountain Horse.  His Mom is devistated, he'd coliced and even with several Vet visits he wasn't getting better and in lotsa pain.  He'll be missed for sure.
Later

    1. The girls run out, then right back in. I feel for the cats, hoping their cave beds keep them warm enough. Though I have a feeling Maizee cuddles in with Camryn.
