Yesterday was my Wednesday off from farm chores...
thanks to our friend and neighbor, Jim.
I used the day to finish all of my Christmas shopping
and wrapped the remainder of my presents.
Because I didn't do the chores, though, I took the dogs for an afternoon walk
to see the animals.
It's hard to go an entire day without seeing my friends.
Down the driveway we went...
Oakley and Annie leading the way...
Sammie beside me (of course)...
meeting Jim, on his way back up the driveway.
We stopped to see Ginger
and MaryAnn for a little while.
These gals always love visitors and come running out of their house
grunting their little piggy "hello's".
A tiny bit of snow started to fall as we were walking.
And when we were finished making our rounds, we headed back to the house.
As I passed the little guest house that sits across the driveway from our house,
I thought perhaps you might like to take a peek inside.
I have not done much in the way of decorating for this little house...
(that remains a future project...suggestions appreciated!)
but it is a warm and cozy place for guests to stay...
