When I went out to feed the chickens, the sun was shining and it was beautiful outside. I decided to walk to the mailbox, which is about a quarter of a mile down our gravel driveway. I had to walk on the edge of the road, because the snow and ice was on the road was slick – the grass had snow, but it has more give. Although Toby and Jesse had driven on the driveway and a friend had come by in her big, Dodge truck, there were no tracks on the driveway at all – it was that frozen. The walk to the mailbox was wonderful. It was good to be out in the sunshine and the snow was lovely. Jes and Toby got home before sunset. Jesse grabbed her camera and headed out the door to get some shots of the snow while the sun was going down. About 30 minutes later when the sun was down, she came in from the cold. I mentioned that I had gotten some great shots of the snow and ice earlier in the day when the sun was rising, but could not post them. Jesse said, "You are going to have to give me your password so I can post your pictures. And I will do some editing while I’m at it." Then she gave me that smart aleck grin. She posted her photos on her blog.
I talked to my DIL on the phone, and told her how snow and ice covered our driveway was. Then I invited her over for a game of hockey – bring your own broom since we don’t have any hockey sticks. While on the phone, I promised GBN1 that we would get her a new cat when the weather is warmer – maybe this spring. She then said she wanted 100 cats and maybe some black geese!? Here is a blog and photo of the last goose at our house. I feel like I am feeding the coyotes.
