Winter Remains

We awoke to freshly fallen snow both Saturday and Sunday...
and much colder temperatures.


the perfect setting for a quiet, low-key weekend.


Sunday morning, Hubb, Amanda and I did the chores together.


It's amazing how quickly the morning work is completed


when there are three of us working!

Can you tell who was standing out in the falling snow?


With plenty of shelter space available, you'd think they'd have enough 
sense to stay under roof!


But, no.... the snow doesn't seem to bother them in the least...
their furry winter coats acting as tremendous insulation.


Naturally, the turkeys followed us wherever we went.


The goats enjoyed our presence....Ritz crackers were doled out generously.


Poor goats...they are awfully skinny, aren't they?


Ok, kids....get in line....


Chores were finished in short order and we headed out on
an early morning adventure.
We drove to State College...home of Penn State,
for breakfast with Amanda's Tim, who is there pursuing his MBA.


We were back home on the farm shortly after noon,
cooked a big pot of bison and root stew,
and spent the rest of the day in front of....


doing this...


Oh, how I love Sundays!!

We probably had an inch or less.... Love the red light glowing from the chicken coup/shack. They must be cozy in there.

I always love how the turkeys keep you constant company during chores. Snow is going to be our constant companion also ..oh well it is winter. Great pictures!

I think I like snuggled in front of the fire best!! I always think snow is so pretty but, Yikes, those roads! I'm glad you made it safe and sound. I traveled over the mountain pass to Central Oregon over the weekend. The pass was 57 degrees. Our ski resorts are hurting here, no snow! Take care and stay warm, Hugs!!
