This has been an extremely cold windy day with a small amount of new snow which developed into a blizzard warning by noon. All of our windows look like this.
The barn was toasty warm this morning so I snapped a few pictures.
These two darlings wait by the feed room door and immediately jump in every single time I open the door for Hazel who checks for mice every single time I go to the barn!
And every single time I want to leave the barn I have to pick them up and remove them from the feed room. Sigh.
The chicken under this wire cage was a chick Reed and I got last spring but she is crippled and prefers the safety of the cage over her. I feed and water her under the cage.
And then there’s the goats along with Daddio and his two naked neck hens.
It’s hay inside the barn in weather like this.
Nobody wants to go outside to eat and I don’t blame them!
When I enter the barn the little chicks are peeping and scratching and running around in their pen but they soon duck under Mama when I get close.
Here’s the view this morning looking from the barn to the house – before the winds picked up.
When the dogs and I return to the house this is the scene…every single time. Ernie is laying there just waiting for Hazel to manhandle him – we think he must love it! She gets his head in her mouth and pulls on his tail and he just lays there.
On this blizzard day I took a look at the paper whites – they’re beautiful!
I spent the afternoon quilting my Bonnie Hunter mystery- I’m still not done but I had to stop for chores and supper.
I decided to throw Jim’s quilt up on the fence for a couple pictures.
And a couple closeups.
Here’s the back – I even left a couple pockets on the back.
Connie and I are caught up with book orders. I’m thinking of leading a quiltalong doing one of the quilts from Beyond The Battlefield – anyone game? I have to finish my Bullseye first!
Reed and I are enjoying this spectacular book of animal photos – I saw a program on TV about the photographer and how he captured these animals on backgrounds of black or white so the eye is not distracted.
And I will close with this photo sent in by Judy in Evansville, IN.
For Connie — When she gets tired of making quilts for the dental offices, maybe she could use Betty!
