We’ve had a very warm autumn, but one week was pretty chilly. One morning, especially, got very cold. I don’t know what the outside temperature was, but inside the boys’ sleepout it was 3.3°C. We kept the cold water running most of the night, so it didn’t freeze up until I turned it off at the kitchen tap at 7:00 (by 7:30 it was frozen), but the hot water line froze and we didn’t have hot water anywhere till 11:00. The boys found impressively thick ice on water troughs and the back creek, and had fun shattering it on the concrete outside the kitchen door. This was the view out my kitchen window that morning:
Mr. Intellectual, Mr. Inventor, and Mr. Sweetie
Mr. Diligence, Mr. Inventor, Mr. Intellectual, and Mr. Sweetie
That was the morning Esther decided to move into the house for the winter!
