Those Angelic Little Feathered Friends of Ours —- Monday, February 27, 2023

These are some of the tiny winter birds

Who spend their winter (here)

With us.

Often living with us year-round. 🙂

These little feathered friends have great a capacity for suffering through the cold 

And never complain!

Always, always they chirp and sing—

Adding tranquillity to our days

Their radiant joy always lends itself to our hearts

I always gift them with sweet-scented seeds

For, after all, they need to keep heat in their bodies

And a full tummy to go to bed on 🙂

They are a peaceful and

a joyful part of each and every day!

Swirling and Twirling —- Thursday, February 27, 2020

Spreading wings in the very sharp cold air

Rocketing high, high, high, up into the sky

Dashing here and there

The birds of winter light up our souls!

A few days back I saq what looked like, MAYBE a sundog, however faint in the sky.

It must have been for Wednesday we were terribly cold 18* f feels like 8* f ( -7 c feels like -13c)

Still, by Saturday we are to warm up into more spring-like temperatures.

I’m ready!

A Genuine and Extravagant Experience—-Wednesday, February 27, 2019

Terry, Boomer and I had walked up to the cross-over pipe looking at the spring projects we wanted to complete, walking ever so carefully in the ‘dry’ parts of the farm road.

We talked about moving this and that, of cleaning the ditch and removing the caps on the pipes when over-head

A low-flying airplane buzzed us…dipping the wings left then right!  It was a wee bit of unusual fun on a very ordinary day.

Our daughter sent us a photo of T’Ata the proud bearer of a wonderous coat


I do believe we need to dry out…rolling around in the dirt (mud) is NOT good for a lady’s coat!

What a mess! 🙂

Calf Update—-Monday, February 27, 2017


We took our daily run through the cows (a tad chilly, it is out there)

cuteWe saw 25 visible calves

grayWhich means there are quarter of the calves born


And probably more

newBecause Mom’s hide out their little ones.  And if the cow is having her baby she often time will hide herself.

white-on-white-on-whiteSo for right now…there are 25 visible calves on the ground!
