Where is Winter?
Yesterday was in the mid 70's and today may even reach 80! Mother Nature is sure having fun with the weather! I packed away all the summer clothes. The jackets, sweaters, sweats, hats and mittens are all laundried and waiting. I love cold weather. I love going out to feed and milk and feeling the cold air against my face, see my breath. I love when it gets snowy and icy and we have a nice fire in the stove, pot of soup simmering on top, tea kettle singing its tune. I love when the power goes off and we can light our oil lamps and snuggle down and read all the books we haven't had time for all summer. Feel free to remind me of this post when Mother Nature gives me what I wished for! On a different note the peepster has company. Peepette was waiting under Betty Boop for me this morning. No, I don't know if they are he and she but right now I am calling them that. When they are older and have their own little personality I will give them there real names. So 2 chicks hatched and around 28 more to go!
