Day Fifty Four

Yesterday’s snow came with a lot of wind, resulting in four lanes of highway being unusable for the amount of snow piling up, a 35 minute drive taking 2.5 hours, and waking up to one foot of snow to gaze upon this morning. It came just as the Christmas snow was disappearing… …and the birds…

Day Fifty Two

And dessert today: Cheesecake! Devil’s Food Cake in place of a crust, Chocolate Cheesecake and plain lemon-flavored Cheesecake…

Can you believe it’s snowing again?!

It’s snowing again, so we can’t come out to play! Thanks for visiting last night, though, with extra pails of hay! And, here, he has had enough of cowering from the snow, and not having fresh food to graze on. So, he reached for the lowest branch for his brunch.
