More Snow ~

More snow over night... 
was about 5" early this morning... 
if it keeps snowing like it is.. 
will get over the 8" mark again.
Not that I mind... since there are no ticks or bugs.

Wild birds, love the feeders this time of year.

DS, earning is room and board, while in College.

Plowing the Driveway~~

Way to cold for the Diesel Tractor to start up on its own this morning... so it need a jump from my Pilot.

Clearing the large piles of snow left by the counties snow plows at the head of our driveway.

We really, really need an angle blade for the back of the tractor. Some day we will be able to afford one.
Until then..  we use the bucket.

Pulling the snow backwards is easier on this wee tractor.

It won't be perfect, but a lot easier for DH to get his car out the drive, now.

Up Hill through the Snow..... Both ways~~~

Poor Lad had to walk up hill, 
Both ways, 
through the snow yesterday to get the mail.

Its 8* this morning, not including wind chill.
Going to be like this all week.
Supposed to have more snow tonight.

We have snow ~

OK....  so I measured the snow.  8 1/2" deep.
  Most snow I have seen here, since moving to this place.
Had to go take photos of some of the animals

Of course in the area of Oregon we used to live...we had a lot more snow.
So it was nice to see this.

Everyone is in the same pasture right now...since it is the only one I can get a heated water tank to.

But I don't think anyone minds... they all like each other.

Granted the animals wanted me to stop taking photos and feed them..and Dyfra had to tell me how bored she was and that I should get their!

No impressed on the new gutters, no only do they leak....
 they put them too close to the roof line...
If we ever have Ice or heavy snow, they will get ripped right off.

Sky lights on the hen house, that were "repaired"  leak too, so I need to some how find the money and someone that knows what they are doing to fix it, before the roof is damaged.

Katie saying,, breakfast,, breakfast now!

Goats are not thrilled....

Nice having snow... missed the beautiful snow we had in Oregon.

Wonderful day at the Fine Art Museum~

I had originally planned to have a Birthday lunch on the 14th... sadly, they were booked full.. both on the 14th and 15th...
So on the 16th...
We headed out to the Fine Art Museum fairly early, since there was going to be snow.
This area comes to a stand still with any kind of bad weather.

So we walked around the museum,  seeing new collections.
Loved this Stain glass Dog Wood window.

Beautiful Marble Garden from India.

Some beautiful paintings, made sure to use No flash, 
as I did not want to damage the paintings.

Stunning Tiffany lamps!  The workmanship was incredible.
After enjoying the museum,we went to the top floor to have lunch at the restaurant.

About half way through, tiny bits of snow started falling. 
Took our time eating and enjoying the day, once we were finished we headed home.

fresh strawberries and

whip cream I can have.
Tasted great!

Beautiful flowers... and the yellow Rose.. really smells like a Rose!!

We have one more thing planned...however I will tell you about it later.

Blue copper Marans Eggs are the most dark, the one
medium dark is a Welsummer, 
the a pinkish Speckled Sussex,
Couple of Buff Orpington eggs and Golden Comet eggs.
Have some more Marans and Welsummers on order,

Wild Canaries ~

Put the thistle feeder out and it just sat there for a month.... finally one morning I saw one wild canary... 
then the next day, two... couple of days later.....   
 think they told their friends!
Cats and humans love watching them.
