Snowy Day

.
A beaver drags it's paddle-like tail occasionally. It crosses a foxes prints and I crossed it's trail

Lots of controversy over eating the right foods. One can never go  wrong with Manischewitz products, but they are getting harder to find.




I live next to an area designated as a National Smokestacks and Silos historical  site. 

Loving winter
What else can
Anyone do?


This is a spring running down the hillside that had a green hue to it resembling a glacier. It has been so cold it has spread all over the hillside and covered the bank before falling into a stream.


I started with the removal of the old faucet, and my youngest daughter put the new one in. A chip off the old block, what a great time working together.

Snow Storm

Living in the weather that just keeps on giving.





Some ice jams have frozen together on the river, but most is still open.





A young eagle lands and stirs up the resident Canadian Geese.

Fit For A King

A nice meal on a cold winter day.


A huge sheet of clear ice peeking above the snow on a recently frozen river.
Pretty large cat
A dusting of snow








I have been running on slow for a bit. I have to wear a heart monitor until the middle of this month.I still get out each day, there is no better place for me to get better as out on the prairie. We are moving the farm today to a larger plot, so I hope mother nature allows us a break on the approaching blizzard. I am in charge of the human children and will amaze them with stories and games throughout the day. The sheep and goats are dragging their bellies with new babies and will enjoy the larger pasture.I got a new Italian Sheepdog, a Maremma, and have named him Luigi. Both the sheep and goats have been initiating him into the group with some head butts and explaining who is boss in the farmyard.

A Little Bit Of The Wildlife


A major herd of deer, I counted 37.





Steam rose on a very cold day while I watched a large flock of Trumpeter Swans.
