Never Ending Chore

Firewood ~ a never ending chore during the winter. It was a bit easier for my men to work on it, because it actually reach 50° this afternoon.

Just A Regular Day

Thermal socks, flip flops, no jacket, and giant icicles ~ just a regular 20° day at our house.

Too Cold!

With the temperature reaching -4° (and colder!) these two just aren't ready to get out of bed. Right after this picture, Jasper actually put his head under the pillow.

Splitting Wood

It's freezing out, so he didn't mind splitting wood and filling up the porch wood rack. He's growing into such a wonderful young man.

First Egg!

Our girl Hyacinth layed our first egg today ~ I was a very happy Chicken Momma. Hoping that egg carton fills up soon! Thought it appropriate to treat the girls to pumpkin in celebration!!

Big Christmas Present!

When it's 25° outside ~ you throw on your face mask and winter coat and then enjoy your 'big' Christmas present for the first time since the concrete cured. It just needs a coat of paint and it will be completely finished.

Happy New Year's 2018

Coolness In The Simple Things

It makes me happy our son finds beauty (or in his words coolness) in simple things. This portion of jagged ice captured his eye when he was thawing the chickens' water.

An absolute gift from God! A magnificent sunset ~ the colors were unbelievable! Just when you think it couldn't get any more breathtaking ~ it did!

Mike - He Can Make Anything!

He makes things like this look easy. But, the time and skill required to fabricate something like this and put it in place, is far from easy. I love watching him do things like this. So happy that Griffin's big Christmas present is almost finished.

Enjoyed a day outside with my men and two and four legged babies.


Hiking through our woods and down to our little creek is one of my favorite things to do. The beauty we discover in the smallest places is magnificent! God's creation is glorious to behold!
