Thankful Thursday



Thankful today for the stillness of our farm.  With our new blanket of snow, it is even quieter than usual.  I think we received about three inches yesterday and a possibility of eight more arriving tonight.  

Gotta love Old Man Winter!

  1. Loving the quiet, too.
    Doesn't your house actually get warmer with a blanket of snow on top?
    Enjoy the peace!

  5. That is a peaceful scene.
    We are predicted to be on the outside of the storm. Time will tell. I do notice the birds seemed to have taken for the dense bushes. Not much feeding going on. Possibly a sign of things to come?

  10. Looks the same here but we have been getting rain on top of our snow the last couple days...starting to get real messy. Hard to make it out of the long driveway without some extra 'ump'.

  25. Just saw your "Behind every great blog is an unfed husband" -- what a hoot! Especially since I got up very early this morning to make a chocolate tart for the blog ... then announced I probably wouldn't be cooking anything else today! My husband just said, "Maybe you should blog some main dishes." LOL

  32. We scurried back to D.C. from W.V. because the storm might dump 3 feet of snow.

    Sorry to leave my W.V. birdies in the lurch, though!

  35. Eh, oui, l'hiver est bien là,chère Michèle et je t'emprunterai bien un peu de neige car ici, ce n'est que pluie et vent, de la boue dans les champs et les chemins, c'est moins beau.
    Je te souhaite une belle journée.

  37. We have been watching the news reports of this weekend's pending snow storm with a bit of envy as the brunt of this storm will affect the east coast and bypass where we're living in NH. Even though we're sorry to not get much snow we hole all will be safe and secure and at home.
