Good Morning! Here it is again!

Another long shovel out to the corral this morning...

Me and number 2 son, shoveled the front walk and back deck and to the corral, about 2 times last night, to keep up so I wouldn't be so bad this am. I still woke up to at least a foot on the shoveled path..took me almost 40 minutes to get hay and oats out to the front part of the corral!

Can you find the cars?

My sister crashed here on her way home from work, because she couldn't see the road (she gets off at 11pm.) One good thing?  There's 3 cars in the driveway...not much to shovel!

  But it IS beautiful  I spent all my shoveling breaks to the corral by taking pictures!  So Pretty..

Winter is one third over!!  Thank you el nina!

The first storm yesterday morning was a surprise..they said it would come through fast..leave and inch and then change to rain then sleet then snow again..instead it left about 4 or 5 inches of snow, and never really changed to sleet expect a "light coating"....just makes it all lovely!  And it never got that warm so it just kept snowing...Then the second one came along and they knew that would be significant snow.....Don't ya love weather?!
But since me and number 2 would go out and shovel it as it came down so even the path to the edge of the corral was a little easier..(only 12" instead of the 12 on top of the first 4 or 5!)

Those piles of snow on the sides are getting harder and harder to reach, so it doesn't fall back on the path you just shoveled!!

So again, the chickens have to wait because they really can take care of themselves as long as they are set up the night before, and it is mainly Lass I want to get to in the morning so I do that myself....Number 2 and maybe number 1 will help later on with the rest....number 1 if he can.  He has the flu or something ( #2 is getting over it and I think I am fighting it and actually this time doing a pretty good job of it) but #1 took yesterday off from work..something he never does, and today too, so not sure how much he can do..

My sister has to work today, but has the weekend off...

See you later...

I am in a baking frenzy!!  Made sour dough bread with Rosemary and Garlic yesterday, and a Bundt cake!  (Dorie Greenspan Baking-From My Home to Yours)  Must be cabin fever!



  1. One thing for is beautiful!!! Xoxoxo

  2. Yes it is....Maybe that makes up for it!

  3. You need to take a picture standing on the path... those sides look so tall!

  4. Baking is what I like to do in bad weather! The snow is beautiful, but there is so much of it!

  5. We are running out of places to put it. It gets harder and harder to throw it so it doesn't fall back. They said we might get another inch "or so" tomorrow and then on Saturday another storm..maybe 3 or more inches...YIKES!!

    Yep..that's what I do..bake! Right now we have a loaf of bread, and 2 cakes...I have to start passing it out to neighbors...haha...
    once I get a camera that takes better indoor pics, I will post them when I bake something.

    You cheered me up guys! I was kind of blue tonight...winter blue I guess! Thanks...
