Have you noticed that so many of my posts of late have something to do with the weather?
My apologies... but weather is such an integral part of farm life and has a profound effect on the days... most especially in the winter time.
It's that time of year... when there's no happenings in the gardens, and fewer hours are spent out-of-doors. There's less to share at this time of year. So, yes, I've become one of those persons who love to talk about the weather!
Yesterday's was a surprise.
We awoke to a lovey, albeit drizzly, morning. This is exactly the kind of snow that I love - enough to make everything white and lovely, but not enough to have to shovel or plow!
It's funny how animals seem to know when bad weather is approaching. On the evening before this snow, 15 of our 20 guineas chose to sleep inside the duck house.
The chickens were not so eager to leave their houses yesterday. They line up at the door awaiting my arrival. Normally they come running out as soon as I open the door. But on mornings when there's snow, they stand there looking at it with such disdain.
As promised, I'll share the most recent indoor projects. A sweater and matching hat...
And two sets of coordinated fitted crib sheets/changing pad covers from these two fabrics, for a friend's daughter who is expecting.
