Winter, finally

It finally snowed!

Good thing, as it is nearly Christmas, and it looked all wrong having everything brown and sorry looking.

The tank heater is plugged in, the hay is piled up, and the barn and sheep shelter are filled with straw for everyone to sleep in. The cats were curled six-to-a-bucket in the barn when I left tonight, purring contentedly.

Yay for winter!

(It's much easier to say that when you are sitting in front of a cheerful wood stove, and there's plenty of firewood stacked outside!)

    Winter brings the shovel out but only for snow removal. Spring and summer seem to initiate a lot more work and trouble..the neverending kind of work. It must be nice to curl up in front of a fire and look over the snow covered farm. We have had little or no snow here yet. Lots all around but not here.
    Enoy the warm fire.

  2. Sounds like everyone is snuggled in for a long winter's nap! Yes! Wouldn't it be great if you could just take a long nap whenever you wanted! :-)

    Love you, AC
