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 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…

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…

First Day of Spring… or was it?

On the official first day of spring it looked like this at my house… And the snow just kept coming down, until poor Chase had a hard time getting around… But finally it looks like this week spring is defeating winter as there are buds on the tree and a flower or two blooming. Its still cold, but warming up. I can’t wait for … Read More First Day of Spring… or was it?

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…

First of January Snow

Thursday as I was coming home from work it started to snow. By the time I got home and situated it looked like this… The flakes were so big at times, when they landed on your clothes you could actually see them, as they didn’t absorb into clothing quickly. It was so cold too that things just froze right away… And the snow kept coming… Even … Read More First of January Snow

Winter Wonderland

We woke up and nothing… no snow, no ice, nothing they predicted. About 9 AM I looked out the window and there was the snow. We made it to church in the snow and when we got out it was covering everything. Winter was showing itself. By the time we got home it was a winter wonderland. After getting home we got the chickens settled in their … Read More Winter Wonderland
