Winter Quiet

Another Christmas holiday has come to a close. It was a wonderful holiday here at the farm this year....filled with family and friends. A few days of rain followed by bitter cold has slowed life down a bit. Daily chores are made up of mostly just the essentials....keeping manure cleaned up and plenty of feed to keep the animals warm.

This time of year gives us more indoor time....time to reflect, time to plan, time to reorganize our lives.

Bird watching is great right now as the cold weather drives more and more of our feathered friends to our feeders. Here are a few that visit with regularity.
Mrs. Downy Woodpecker
Mr. Downy Woodpecker
Mr. Cardinal (Mrs. visits, too)

Having the kids around over Christmas gave us a chance to stock up on firewood. Nothing makes me feel warmer in these cold winter months than knowing we have plenty of wood on hand.
This picture of our wood pile was taken with my Christmas present.....yes, Santa was very good to me...there was a wide angle lens under the tree (Thank goodness that Santa reads my blog!)

  1. There are few things more enjoyable that seeing birds in the winter on feeders. I love it!

    I have total woodpile envy. How I would love a wood furnace and a woodpile!

    Sounds so lovely where you are at.

    We love to watch the birds and the squirrels in the backyard. We keep the feeders full and water available and they keep on coming.
