Winter is officially here. We awoke to a world of white on Thursday morning. Not only was it white, but it was windy (though not as windy as it had been) and Old Man Winter was still tossing snow flurries our way. Did I mention yet that it was a bit chilly? About 13 degrees (but felt like a -3 with the wind chill). And like any good self-respecting Southerner, I wanted to throw the covers back over my head and avoid the cold altogether. But life doesn’t let cowgirls do that, so I had to brave the cold. The hen house needed winterized; I needed to raid the grainery for more feed for the aforementioned hens, and I wanted to take pictures. I’m crazy, I know. I hope that the cold comes through in these first, real winter shots I’ve gotten to snap this year. I figure the snow will be around for a while as the temps aren’t supposed to get above freezing for the rest of the week. As that is the case, by the time we get back from Vegas, the river will probably be frozen over, or at least well on its way.
You can see the back of our house in the photo above.
Yeah, Baby, it’s cold outside! The chickens didn’t even want to leave the warmth of their hen house yesterday. The dogs were all begging to come in. And because I’m a sucker, I let them. The cats were yowling around. But I’m allergic. So cats indoors isn’t great. Even though I did bring Reeses in for a few minutes. I regretted it later.
At least today we have sunshine! I’ll be spending the better part of this day packing for our Vegas trip. Well be going for a conference, well, Zach and Kelsey will be going for the conference. I’m going to shop and eat amazing food, and watch the National Finals Rodeo. And you heard it here first, someday, I’ll make it to that event. As a contestant. Not a spectator.
Have a great Friday y’all.
