Although beautiful, the frigid temps and wind chills have meant extra care for our farm animals, and all are doing fine.
The chickens have a cozy coop, plenty of straw, food, water, and even some wood ash for dust bathing.
I usually have at least one barn cat 'help' me with the morning chores.
The creek is frozen and covered with snow.
Sometimes my body wishes it was younger so I could go ice skating, like I did when I was a kid.
I have fond memories of skating on ponds and creeks with my brother and cousins.
We have enjoyed some of our garden harvest this winter...
...and plenty of farm-to-table and woods-to-table meals.
Stay cozy friends, and enjoy the beauty that everyday offers!
