A month and a half since I last posted?!? Just not much to say, and the winter and bad things have kept me down. Several weeks ago in 36 hours, we lost a favorite (but quite old) cat, a cow, and two calves. Heartbreaking…
Winter continues, it’s 22° right now. At least it’s sunny, those cloudy days send me to my recliner by the wood stove. For those of you who have never had a wood stove, you don’t know what you’re missing. Yes, it’s work to bring in the wood, clean the ashes & chimney, but the warmth it gives off is simply comforting.
I’m struggling to get back into making beads (and selling them), so no bead pictures. A nice variety of everything else, though. We’ll start with critters first. This is our latest neighbor, he/she has been leaving bunny droppings all over my flower garden. We may have a fight when my plants start growing.
And I’m not happy with this guy. He’s been waking me up every morning at first light by sitting on the vine by my bedroom patio door and trying to fight with his reflection. It’s getting old…
These are some photos of my big fuzz ball of a dog when we had our last snowfall,
Don’t feel bad for him, he prefers being outside, even covered with snow.
It does look pretty, if you don’t have to go out in it.
More critters, the cat sitting on my computer,
and Bunny enjoying a bucket of snow,
On with the outside critters, Beauty and the beast (the bull),
and Beauty with our newest rescue, Buddy. He’s a past-his-prime Amish used Standardbred, and he’s a sweetheart,
Beauty sticks pretty close to him. She really needed someone of her own kind. Dexter, the bull, really likes her (I think her size impresses him), but Beauty drives him away if he gets too close. I was out checking the fence line the last warm day, and the whole herd had to come see what was going on.
A gorgeous amaryllis that’s blooming right now,
