Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

Random Snow Shots

Just a few more pictures of the snow from the other day. It was really pretty--which I can happily say because I didn't have to drive in it. Usually the reality overrides the lovely for me. By Thursday the roads were in great shape so it was back to work to catch up on what needed to be done. The temperatures have gradually warmed up, and I was finally able to dump out all the water tubs. I use the black rubber ones, but when there have been too many below freezing days, they get frozen solid and not easy to dump out. Today (Saturday) the temperatures are into the fifties and it's nice outside, despite the snow cover. Much of it is melting, but I don't believe it will all melt off today. All the critters are basking in the sun and enjoying the warmth.

I'm not sure why but this picture of the birdbath, looking slightly tipsy and whimsical in a snow hat, makes me smile.


The chickens hesitate to step into the white stuff, but the rooster thinks it might taste pretty good.

The girls enjoying some 'free hay' and you can tell several of them opted to spend the night outside and are wearing snow blankets.

A little dark, but here is Boone enjoying the snow.

Glad you are getting some melt - sounds like you've had a week of it.

I didn't get to watch the2nd half of The Last Templar darn it - we had choir that night.

Take care in all that ice and snow. T.

Hi Corinne! Boone is quite a character, and sometimes he doesn't even have to do anything, to make me laugh--it's that sooo sad face! Tina, it was a pretty good movie I thought. A little more hokey in the second part, but if it comes out on DVD, I'd think it'd definately be worth watching again! Sorry you missed it. I just 'stumbled' onto it Sunday night and am glad I did.
