in 14 years on our farm.
Stella bumped up against the fence,
and was covered with frost. The temp was zero, but sunny and still.
It was an amazing morning to be outside.

I need good, strong coffee before I venture out into the cold.
A chorus of hungry baa's greet me, and I get a few suspicious looks,
"Where have you been? Can't you see we're starving?" Everyone follows me with their expectant eyes....Pregnant ewes are always hungry. And sometimes irritable!Bellys are starting to get round, and there's still
over a month until we begin lambing!Belle, the watchful guardian, always on the lookout,
even when she's been up all night barking at coyotes The sky is full of contrails, jets heading west from Chicago.
A beautiful, sunny morning!

In the bleak midwinter
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter,
Verse one, written by the English poet Christina Rossetti in 1872.
I love that poem. I love winter days.
Having the time to catch up on some reading,
gazing out the window watching the birds,
feeding my flock of sheep,
watching the ewes as they grow heavy with lambs...
Time to do some spinning and knitting,
skirting fleeces, taking photos, editing photos,
working on the website...
Cooking up deliciously hearty dinners
in my new Le Creuset french oven...
(yes, it's worth every penny!)
Hoping for more soon!
