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.
i'm kind of a crazy lady getting ready for the big shop update on friday.
you'll come take a peek at what's new, right?! pretty please?
every day this week, i'll post a little sneak peek of some things that will listed.
THIS FRIDAY, feb. 1 at 9am EST.
