Day Fifty Three

Goats on the porch

The goats and the sheep have taken to visiting the front porch around mid-morning. Today, they just laid down and napped.

Hair Sheep, lazing about

Even the sheep, who are normally quick to get up and go when you come near them, just laid there and let me look and snap.

Two are having a staring contest, and two are busy with an itch.

New Year’s Day. Took a trip to Logan, Utah, where the University nestled in the mountains was covered in so much snow, it made it hard to see where the car-path ended and the footpath began.

Day Thirty Seven


A Chicken March

Waiting for breakfast. They seem to be looking at the world like, “What? Still snowing? Our worms are freezing over! Noooo!”

Let's Huddle Together

They are really learning about teamwork in their efforts to stay warm!


The World from Up High

I didn’t even know chickens could fly this high up, about eight feet high there.


I'll eat (almost) anything

We’ve named him Skitterson, for he is quite skittish. He finally discovered that since his lawn-mowing services are no longer necessary, perhaps he can start in on pruning the bushes. Good job, Skitterson!Flake Dripping Off!

Snowflakes Hanging Off the Edge

True Story

The previous owners of this little urban homestead had these silk flowers lying around the front yard. They look great covered in snow.Covered In Powder

The quiet in the air on the day after it snowed is a totally breath-taking experience. Like, you don’t want to breathe in case you’re too loud and you’ll break the beautiful silence.Snow Up Top
