A Cold, Snowy Winter’s Morn on the Farm


My DEEP feelings for SNOW go way back. In fact, I don’t remember ever NOT being enamored with Snow. I’ve loved Snow forever.

Of course, growing up in Georgia, and living there most of my life, I didn’t KNOW Snow personally, but I fell in love any way. I suspect it is kinda like online dating? We have never met in person until I moved to this farm, but I loved SNOW before we met.

Old Year, New Year

What do you think about the winter so far, Mr. Mustache Cat?

I Can Feel It, I Can Just Feel It

 “Well, the sun’s not so hot in the sky today. 

I can feel summertime slipping away.

A few more geese are gone,

A few more leaves turning red.

From “September Grass” James Taylor

I can feel it.

Ever so slightly. But I can just feel it. Barely. But there.
