Snow, Snow Beautiful Snow

The fluffiest powder fell from the sky today, making our farm a winter wonderland. I felt bad for not helping with chores, but I couldn’t help but bring my camera with me for the beautiful snow. Also, I think our dog is one of the happiest dogs in the world, maybe I’m biased but look at her smile as she’s jumping off the bales! I was laughing all morning, her joy is contagious.

Sunday Sun Flares

Like a lot of people out there, I would consider Sunday to be my favorite day of the week. Worship, breakfast food, quality time with loved ones what’s not to love?

This Sunday Jordan mentioned he needed to go up to his grandparents to do chores, and like I typically do when he heads North to do chores I informed him I would go with him. No, not to help – but to take pictures. Duh.

Sunset + curious critters = count me in. AND I can’t pass up a chance to check on how Herbie is growing. Whos Herbie, you ask? Herbie was our first calf last year, and the name just stuck. #gohuskers

Winter Storm Jupiter

Winter Storm Jupiter has arrived, and although the ice is a total pain I just love how the sun shines off of it and everything turns to glitter in the morning light.

Fortunately, our power stayed on throughout the storm so it truly wasn’t all that inconvenient – as I’m sure it was for many others. So we hopped in the pickup and headed to the cover crops to check on how the ladies were doing.

I’ve recently been reading “The Shack” and in the beginning of the book, it describes perfectly why I love miserable weather.

“There is something joyful about storms that interrupt routine. Snow or freezing rain suddenly releases you from expectations, performance demands, and the tyranny of appointments and schedules. And unlike illness, it is largely a corporate rather than individual experience.” – The Shack

“He paused to take in the beauty of a world engulfed in crystal. Everything reflected light and contributed to the heightened brilliance of the late afternoon.” – The Shack
