Frosty Morn'

Colder weather and frosty mornings are now a regular thing here at the farmette.
My son is rejoicing as he says this makes the deer, "move", and ups his chances during the hunting season. He must be right, as he took a doe last night with his bow.
So, guess what we are having for supper?


Frosty mornings also mean that the wood stove is up and running for the season. We are all enjoying the warmth it brings to our old farmhouse. This is especially true for our dogs who love to relax by the stove. I can't deny that I love to relax by the wood stove as well. It is one of my favorite places to hang out during cold weather.
Any frosty mornings in your neck of the woods?

  1. Yes. We had our first heavyish frost yesterday morning in NE Texas - complete with a glaze of ice on the bird baths. But it still warmed into mid-60s by afternoon then back to 40s again this morning. Up down, Up down. Expecting almost 80 tomorrow!

  5. The mornings have been very cold and we have had frost a few times.Generally, it's a light frost. It is probably in the high 40's today. That would be fine, but the wind is nasty! I'm with you when it comes to a fireplace or a woodstove. I really prefer a fireplace because I love the roaring flame, but we don't have one and warm is warm!

  6. Your pictures look like my yard and front fields did this morning. Low 20's last night.

    Venison Stew and a wood stove. Most people have no idea what they are missing.

  8. It was very chilly but sunny here this morning. My husband and I went to 4th Ave in Brooklyn to watch the NYC marathon runners pass by but we didn't stay long because our feet got cold.

  10. Pretty awesome for a 13 year old. He must be a good shot. We did have frost this week-even a blowing snow but nothing that stuck. I bet the wood stove is extra cozy :)

  11. These are pristine pictures of frost. We also have frost and are glad when it warms up by mid day. Hopefully winter's grip is still quite distant.

  12. My son is hunting for the first time this year -- he's 26. Hope he is as fortunate as your son.

    No real hard frost here yet, which is weird for our part of the country. Hoping for some rain later this week.

  14. We are frosty up here too. Rumor has it, just a bit east of us had 1-2 inches of snow. We didn't see it here, but it has been quite crisp these past few days.

    I like the first photo is very beautiful, with the thin layer of frost of morning, I also liked your text, heating with wood is the best, it's so sweet to be around the fire ! :))

  22. I wish to say thank you for reading my blog at Red tape. I find myself dreaming of the day we can return home and have a small town farm home like yours. By the way your photography is amazing.

  24. No frost here yet, but we rarely get frost...we did get rain last night and the temperatures have dropped too...it's only supposed to be 66 here today...that means I have to get out of my shorts!

  25. My husband is coming home today with a deer, two hogs and a turkey. It takes alot to feed our crew. No frost here. This is when I love living in Texas, 75 and sunny and gorgeous.

  26. Up here in Western New York we have had several frosty mornings in a row. Today it was about 24 when I went out to the barn.

    Our wood burning stove has been going for weeks. We usually start it up in the late afternoon and that's where you can always find me.

  27. Jeese! Every morning is in the low 30s these days here. At least, with the time change, it's no longer pitch black at 6:30 AM anymore. Dy=ays are still 40-50s though, Brrrrrrr!

  28. Every morning has been frosty this week! It's up in the 40s during most days though.

  29. Your pictures of the frost made me shiver. I imagine we will have a frost soon. Nothing is more enjoyable than snuggling up in front of a wood fire with a dog by your side - pure heaven.
    Congratulations to your son! There are quite a few hunters in our area and they've all been out with their bows and arrows.

  30. Wow great shots! We are supposed to be that cold tomorrow. Stay warm!

  31. No woods here sadly and it's a bit early for any frost. But we got wind and rain!

  32. Used to have a lot when I was a kid but they have gotten more rare. May have something to do with the fact that I now live on the side of a hill :)

  35. Luckily no frosty mornings where we are right now, but plenty back 'home'. When we're there we too love the heat of the wood stove, but would I trade it for time at the beach ? ummmm ... no ! ;-)

    Congrats to your son on his hunting prowess !
