Chickens and Firelight

Posted by mrssmythe on March 27, 2017 in Chickens, Crafting, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

More snow. More chickens. Well, technically not a lot more snow, but it did snow here this week,(very briefly) and the stuff that was already on the ground looks to be in no hurry to leave.

Posted by mrssmythe on March 13, 2017 in Art, Baking, Crafting, Garden, Seasons, Week in Review |

Snow, snow, snow. That’s all anyone was talking about today. Snow last week, and snow on the way. This in addition to frigid temperatures and incredible winds. It’s a lot to take in on a day when you’ve lost an hour’s sleep to Daylight Savings Time. Coffee helps. Even crocheted coffee. Here’s a little cup that I […]

Look what’s popping out despite the snow! Part of me says, “Hooray!” Part of me is concerned. But, with warmer temperatures forecast for the coming week (conveniently in time for school break), I suppose it can’t be terrible.

And Then There Were Four

More snow this week… About 2 inches is all, but it came down all day, and the snow dogs – Kipper and Ursa – were thrilled. Kipper, in fact, didn’t want to come in out of the storm. When we finally got him inside, his coat was covered in snow and he had to be […]
