Mid Week Update

I know some of you need your farm fix and I apologize for being off a few days. Its the pre-holiday, get ready for company thing: cleaning, shopping and grave digging.
Then this morning we woke up to no power and 10 degrees F outside. Thank goodness for the wood stove.
I look at this and swear the limbs are moving.
Sunday we woke up to another clean layer of white.
Everything was just bright and breathtaking.

Nature is decorating for the holidays, and keeping it cold enough too.
Dave and Jock at the tree line. No matter the temperature, Jock needs his walks. Mia sharing the electric water bowl with the chickens. The adults chowing on their hay last night. They are going through a lot more with the cold, and nothing much to find with the snow on the ground. Headline: Michigan blog follower brings family to blog site. May have to photo shop son to make this a Christmas picture (and crop that shadow). Got to have a picture On The Pond.
These boys graduated from high school together.
P.S. I'll explain the grave digging tomorrow if I get my shopping done early.
