I hope you had fun playing in the snow this week. There was a lot of it! I shoveled the driveway on Monday. It took me 1 1/2 hours! Thankfully Tim helped for the last 45 minutes. It was a wonderful storm. We are so grateful for the winter snow in the mountains that will provide all the water we need during the summer!
|There was so much snow that I couldn’t drag the wagon to the barn.
I had to shovel a path from the house to the barn!
|Scout and JJ love to watch and wait while I’m doing chores.
They keep an eye out for people or other animals that might come while I’m working.
|There was so much wind and snow that the snow blew in through the slats in the hay barn.
It was a surprise because we looked at a lot of types of hay barns, and this one was supposed to keep the snow off the hay!
We are always trying new things on the farm. We will change the barn a little bit in the spring to see if it does a better job protecting the hay next winter. It’s best when the hay stays dry all winter.
|The little chicks that were born in September are all grown up.
They are both roosters.
We already have a rooster so these two found a new home on Wednesday.
|Chuck was an unexpected surprise in the barn this morning.
He doesn’t belong on this side of the barn.
He broke through the fence.

I decided that MissE and Chuck want to spend some time together. I think Chuck was tired of hanging out with the Curly and Side Kick.
I let MissE stay out in the pasture!
She is so excited to have a new part of the pasture to explore!
|Can you see the little plants growing?
My family gave me an AeroGarden for Christmas.
The herbs are starting to sprout and grow!
It won’t be long before I can use them when I’m cooking!
Wow! It’s cold outside! It’s a nice day to do chores, then work on indoor projects.
I thought you might like to see some spinning so Matt took a few short videos for you to look at.
The wheel is attached to the pedal by a short cord.
When my foot works the pedal, the pedal pushes the wheel around.
When the bobbin is full, I take it off and start a new bobbin.
