Slow Melt

While most of the south is beginning to recover from the snow… the snow here is sticking around from last week… The sun has finally come out today and it’s melting some of the snow off the tractors and the road is mostly clear… The picnic table could use some work though… I guess it will just take time and a little more sunshine… I’m … Read More Slow Melt

Snow Birds

The snow is sticking around and the birds are cleaning out the feeders. These three little guys come around a lot (it might be different birds, but I like to think they are the same 🙂 ) This little guy stayed on this tree for a long time and flew between the feeder and the same branch many times. Our little woodpecker likes to … Read More Snow Birds

Snow Sky

Looking out at the sun setting over the snow you can notice many things… colors, shapes, designs, and many interesting things. I was out the other day and saw this sky… It looked like something was falling from the sky or jetting all over…   I don’t know what cause all these designs, but I don’t think I want to…   It’s more fun … Read More Snow Sky

Snow… Snow.. Snow… Cold

The snow came down the other day. I was so happy to be inside (not happy to be sick, but grateful I didn’t have to go outside). The neighbors barn was barley visible in the snow. Our tractors were hard to see as well until the snow slowed down… It was a pretty snow and the coop roof was covered in a matter of … Read More Snow… Snow.. Snow… Cold

When it’s cold outside…

When the snow is coming down and the temperature drops, there is no place like your own home… warm and comfy to make things better. Our pups know this well as when it is cold and snowing outside, hubby and I are kicked out of our chairs and the dogs take over for a snooze… Who us mommy? We didn’t take your chair…’ We … Read More When it’s cold outside…

The cold and the flu…

It was snowing even before I got up this morning and I couldn’t see the ground or drive way then… I had to get to the doctor though as things haven’t gotten better. Turns out I have a version of the flu that my flu shot didn’t cover and on top of it strep throat… yuck. So I am back in bed watching the … Read More The cold and the flu…

More snow?

I have been sick. It’s been a couple years since I have been sick and I am not happy. I have almost lost my voice (hubby may be happy about that)… but it makes it hard to keep up with the house, animals, and just getting things done. Hubby has been helping out, my mom and step-dad were up this past weekend for step-dads … Read More More snow?

Warming up some…

Still snow on the ground and cold in the air here… The boys and chickens are glad it has gotten into the double digits and no more frozen eggs. It’s been a long week, but tomorrow I get to go to a Women’s Christian conference. I am excited to be going, it should be a good time. Hope you are staying warm and have … Read More Warming up some…

Icey Cold…

There is still snow on the ground and ice under and on top… it is cold. It is so cold that not only is our fresh spring frozen over, but our chicken eggs froze too, despite the heat lamps in the chicken coop. The chickens seem to be doing well and seem warm enough in the coop. They are getting to be spoiled by … Read More Icey Cold…

Cold Vortex…

The cold wind and frigid temperatures held off until after the funeral and we were all home. The funeral went as expected and now will be a time of healing for the family. The thing about this Uncles passing is that we know he was saved by faith an confession, so those of us who are saved will see him again in heaven. It was … Read More Cold Vortex…
