Snow and boy is it cold~~

Stjarna trudging through the wee bit of snow we had the other day. At least it is dry and powdery snow.  But goodness is it ever so cold.... with the wind chill we have been running between 0 and -11*.
Icelandic's are loving it... but not us humans.

We are however, due a bit of a warm up in a couple of days. Would be nice, not to have frozen water buckets!

Trail on the property is looking good~~

 The Swamp.... 

Finally got around to taking some photos of the new path around the property..... even got one of our very own wee swamp....  OK.. we own part of a swamp. LOL

Stjarna was rather zippy that morning, as we hadn't been out for awhile... so taking photos was a challenge.

Can see some of the No Trespassing signs.
Not that people pay attention.

DH, DS and I have been working hard to clear a nice path all away around the property. Nice for walking or riding ones horse.
DH and I like to take lots of walks, usually with Maggie.

Can see different areas of the trail.

Still some snow on the ground in the back.

DH will be adding some more paths soon, as we get the fencing up.
To which, we should be able to order some fencing this Friday.

 DH and DS will be very busy over the rest of the winter.

Home made Pizza ~~

Since meat is so spendy here, I am always looking for ways to stretch it during dinner.
So this time around.....

Home made pizza, crust is from organic flour and made from scratch, so is the sauce, and so on.
Meat, tomatoes, onions and topped with a very good sheep's cheese.

Needless to say, there were no left overs with this giant pizza!

The big snow storm..... ah....

Yes, this is the after math of the big snow storm. A dusting of snow, that turned in to slick ice and frozen ground.
They shut businesses and stopped classes early for this....

Even with the ground frozen solid, Dyfra managed to find some dirt to stick to her coat.
Its almost magical, how she does it. LOL

Frozen water tanks..... which.... hopefully before next winter... we will have a Bar A Bar insulated auto waterier out there instead.
Can see DS cleaning the pasture and Nari making sure he does it right. ;O)

DS is going to college part time, adding classes each semester. At this point, until he knows what he wants to major in, he will be bunking at home. So to help pay for the rent, he is required to do chores.
