First Day of Spring… I think NOT

So “they” say yesterday was the first official day of spring. Well at our place yesterday and today looked something like this… Not that I am complaining as it was the only good snow we actually got this whole winter. Hubby and I were both home, no thanks to my county job. They were too cheap to let us off in a foot of snow … Read More First Day of Spring… I think NOT

Snow Dogs on the Hunt

Our boys love to play in the snow especially when you are out with them. They love to run in any wide open space and find new places to explore. Our Chase is pretty intrigued when he is around any barn and is always trying to sniff out the critters. He is usually on high alert during these times not wanting to miss a … Read More Snow Dogs on the Hunt

Snow to spring and back again …

That last eastern snow storm got us  Monday night into Tuesday. Since we knew it was coming our way we did prep work around our place. Secured the chickens and got a couple flock blocks set up plus extra water, covered up the tractors, moved the generator, and filled up the bird feeders as we like to provide a spot for the birds in … Read More Snow to spring and back again …

And back again…

I know I just posted about the looks of spring coming to our area. I was looking forward to some nicer weather and the wind to not be so much of a bother. But today I woke up to this… snow, cold, wind 😦 The ground, deck, and all were covered.   I guess old man winter is not ready to let go just yet. I … Read More And back again…

I Spy… Spring

A couple weeks ago or so it looked like this… The boys were out playing in the snow… And jumping on the logs that hubby has been splitting for fire wood… It was a winter wonderland. And today…. There were blooms and buds everywhere… Pretty little flowers… Of many colors… Buds pushing through for daffodils… So many flowers coming through the ground… The chickens were … Read More I Spy… Spring

Snow, Bird, whatever that was…

Our little Grayson has a few perches in the house that he loves to sit in. During each season he has different things to watch and he will use one perch more then others. Right now he loves this one as he can see many things. He has recently been enjoying the snow falling… Watching the birds fly from the tree right below this window … Read More Snow, Bird, whatever that was…

Time for Snow Fun…

Good morning…. Chase is ready for more snow fun today. He can’t wait to be out again today playing and having fun. (Who can resist this face that says “mommy let me play in the snow”) The plan is to finish inside chores and in between take snow breaks to let him run about and play. I am sure Baxter will join him some … Read More Time for Snow Fun…

First Snow…

We had our first snow… it was so pretty. It started last night and went through early this morning. After work today I took the boys out to play and enjoy the snow. Baxter has new boots as he is getting older and he gets colder quicker then he used to. At first he wasn’t sure of them, but then he got used to traipsing … Read More First Snow…

Best Part of Snow

There are many things you can say about snow… its cold, its wet, its messy, its too deep, its too hard to see when it gets going good… You could say all these things, but why not also see the positives? Why not see the beauty? In our recent 3 feet of snow I could have seen many negatives and at times I think the biggest … Read More Best Part of Snow

Snow Dogs

Our boys love the snow. Especially Chase… Chase would stay out in the snow with us as long as we would let him. But usually we make him go in every so often as his poor paws gets caked with snow so we make him go in to warm up. In the 3 feet of snow we had a couple weeks ago it was a … Read More Snow Dogs

Helpers

When it is snowy, icy, or windy we check on the chickens a lot as they are usually inside their run. We are making sure they have food, water, and their laying boxes are clean. We also collect the eggs. So when we go outside we have a couple of helpers who go with us. Chase is our biggest helper. He is always up … Read More Helpers
