Wasn’t a hard winter, thank the Lord, it was and is very beautiful.
I also appreciate the quiet mornings when the forest and the fields give off that crisp and cold feeling and the air freezes as it’s pulled into my lungs. Sure makes that HOT cup of coffee taste pretty damn good!
Winter’s a great season for getting some family time in. Sitting by the fire with the grand kids, planning the up-coming year.
It’s the time when you slow down and appreciate what was accomplished last year. Healthy pasture raised chicken and pork in the freezer, potatoes and onions in the root cellar and hard cider ready to be enjoyed.
I must say the good Lord has helped us in our hard work and in our endeavors to live a more self sustainable life style.
I do love the winter but the winter solstace passes and the next thing you know spring!! Yes babies are popping up all over the place.
Pasture needs attention, asparagus and rhubarb need harvesting and the fences, always the fences need work. Thank God my son-in-law who’s young and strong and is the owner along with his wife (my charming daughter) and 3 kids can do the heavy lifting.
Chicks arrived March 24th and our little porkers arrived on Sunday the 18th.
Who doesn’t love SPRING!.
