Just incase anybody doesn’t believe we have a ridiculous amount of snow here you go… and as an added bonus, this morning it was -20 actual temperature (not wind chill). We may never see spring.
I was debating taking Joe to work this morning so I could have the car and then decided against it. I was perfectly happy with that decision too once he took this photo of the car temperature gauge! I’ll pass!
My chicken coop is so full of snow the door doesn’t even shut. And the chickens are cold. They can’t wait for spring! Although even when spring does get here, it will be awhile before their yard isn’t disgusting.
Here’s the barn. If you could get up onto the snow bank, you could basically look right into the loft without having to go upstairs. I’m kind of tempted except the bank is so darn high. I did see a red squirrel run inside there today, hopefully they are staying warm!
Now for some fun pictures of the day! We used some mustard greens in a recipe the other day, and in order to save the rest and not waste them (not that anything gets really wasted, the chickens would get it otherwise) I dehydrated them today and saved them to add to soup later.
And for some daily baby photos here is James playing in his room! I tried so hard to get him to nap in my arms this afternoon so I could snuggle him and nap too but no such luck…he wasn’t having any of it. Finally he got so mad at me I just put him in his crib and he fell right asleep! Bummer! Our baby wants to nap on his own now but has recently decided he wants to sleep by me starting at 5:30 in the morning…the last few nights he has woken me up at 5:30 like clockwork and he doesn’t particularly want to eat… he just wants me to snuggle him back to sleep so he can sleep in my arms while I’m awake! I wish I knew what he thinks of in his head… I bet it would be super interesting!
Just hanging out with his doggy friend. He is fascinated by the cats too. Ocean lets him (basically encourages him!) to pet her anytime she can, Chloe is tolerant but mostly just wanted to sit under his crib or in his glider, and Pinga wants to sniff him but only if he makes no move to touch her! And Cora loves him but that’s largely because she enjoys drool and spitup and poop but she also likes to sit near him too and doesn’t bat an eye at his squawks or cries and squeals (and he was doing all of the above in this photo!).
