This is how my world looked yesterday morning.
Don't be fool, though...
it's not the same snow that I had shown you earlier this week.
No, by Wednesday afternoon that snow had melted...
only to be replaced by this snow on Wednesday night.
And that snow was gone by Thursday noon.
Yesterday ended up being a good day for extras.
The chicken houses were cleaned...
and nesting boxes stripped with new bedding replaced...
much to the ladies' chagrin.
Yes, they squawked and squawked at me...
a hen's version of cussing I am sure!
I made time to finish this new hat for Mackenzie.
This one should fit for a couple years.
How is it that a child's head can grow so quickly?
In the afternoon I headed to a local town to pick up buckets of compost
from our favorite little café.
If you are local and you have never been to Espresso Yourself Café in the square
of Newport, Pa....you must take the time to go.
Breakfast or Lunch... their menu items are wonderful... often organic,
always natural, local and delicious!
Every couple of weeks, we take out truck and pick up their kitchen scraps
to add to our compost pile.
It helps them...by keeping food scraps out of the trash.
And it helps make our compost even better!
The thing about that trip to town was this:
the weather was amazing!
The farm in the above pictures is a lovely wedding venue called "Sweet Water Farms".
On their property is a little cottage (it might be a spring house) that I just love.
In fact... I want to live in this little cottage!
Isn't it adorable? They just renovated it... and I seriously want to pick it up and move it to our farm!
I must tell you...
I so enjoyed your "Spring" comments yesterday.
I could feel myself getting more and more excited for Spring as the day progressed.
In that vein, I thought I would resurrect some Spring and Summer photos
to help us all get in the mood.
It won't be long... don't listen to that silly ole groundhog!!
