Snowy Weekend

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANow THAT was a good old fashioned snow storm! No matter how many times we shoveled or plowed … within an hour you couldn’t tell we’d been out at all! The snow is well over my knees all through the front yard – and over Paco and Darby’s knees in the back!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA rescue operation was in order!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOur handy dandy little snow thrower sure came in useful! Although both Ede and I were harbouring dreams of what it will be like when ‘Bully’ arrives with her plow ready to go. ‘She’ is currently down the road at our local mechanic’s garage … getting her ‘extras’ installed.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn the meantime Paco and Darby decided it was quieter down in the front field. Deeper … but quieter. I’m not sure when they snuck out of the donkey house to deek by me!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen they realized I was bringing out some carrots they were eager to get back up the hill and meet me at the gate.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen the paddock was cleared Paco decided he wanted to tell me a secret.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHe told Darby he’d hidden a treasure chest of carrots in the hay bale. She was ‘in the zone’ for quite a while trying to track that down!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFinally, I convinced him he was going to have to tell her the truth.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASo now all is well in the paddock – and I’m working away at my desk. Although the sun is much higher than this shot the snow is still some pretty out there!! Hope you’ve had a chance to get out and enjoy a little sunshine in your neck of the woods!
