in which He blessed: snow and sun

saturday we awoke to that glorious, elusive thing. that thing that makes my heart SING! the sun! a cloudless sky! joy of joys! i was almost manic with happiness. winnie, the girlie and i headed out for a snowy hike. winnie's endless enthusiasm and bounding-through-the-drifts glee was so fun to watch. girlie snow angels. birch trees. buried birds' nests. those kind of days draw my heart back to where it should be. grateful. content. praising Him.

we stopped to visit with the chicken ladies before heading inside.  ms. mabel was all, "for heaven's sake, get my feet OUT of this snow.  ick!"

to ensure that our ladies stay warm and keep on laying through the dark winter months, we use a small heat lamp inside their coop.  which also keeps their water from freezing.

doesn't the snowy bird bath look mushroom-like?
today & tomorrow we're having a strange heat wave so the snow's turning back into water and melting away.  it rained last night and my husband had a snow (or rather ice) day today, which is always awesome.  except us homeschoolers still had to have school.  which the kids did not think was so awesome.  but they did hurry through their work to get to the daddy-pull-us-behind-the-snowmobile fun.

  5. Do you know how much I love this post, and how much you've just made me miss the snow and the bright blue winter skies of the high desert?! (A lot.) Your chicken eggs are beautiful. I miss getting those from my friend. And it's just lovely where you are, Megan. (xo from me!) Oh, and I really appreciated your last post, too. Really good stuff. As always, no matter what you put up.

  6. Love these pics-the sun always does my heart good. :) I like to let it sink in deep. What's crazy is we're expected to have spring-like thunderstorms and warm temps this week in Arkansas! I'm intrigued by your chickens. :) we live on a small-ish farm with cows, but no chickens. I think it's time to change that!
