Frosting On the Trees

This morning I looked out the window and was very surprised to see how beautiful the snow was outside. We are all getting tried of the snow but, it was frosty on the everything. So, Maddie and Gus took a little walk with me.
My guy's hat has poofed out. I will fix him up in the spring.
I never get tired of looking at this.

                                                  Hope you have a great President's Day!

This is the latest rug I've hooked.
I have been hooking lots these days because
of the snow and cold.
It is so nice to have the sun shining today.
The birds are singing and I know spring is near.
I'm a chicken raising rookie.
I started 3 years ago with 12, they survived that summer.
Thought I would let them "Free Range" and everyone of them died.
We live on a farm as most of you know.
There are raccoons, possum, coyotes, etc. that love to kill chickens.
Last spring I got 28 chicks. Put them in a pole barn, 3 sided.
I fenced the front with chicken wire, thought they were safe.
I have 5 now.
I have learned to put them in every night.
Let them out every morning.
It is my mission to keep them alive. LOL!

Extra Extra Large Egg

 Happy Sunday!
Look at this egg,
it is the biggest egg my chickens have ever laid.
I did crack it open and it was a double yolk.
Made brownies with it.
 I couldn't of shut the lid.

My husband has been feeding the deer.
The date on the picture is wrong but, the temp. is right.
Do you see them  up in the woods also?
It has to rough for them with all the snow and cold we've had.
Have a good week!!

Snowy Winter

 It is Super Bowl Sunday and we lost our power at 7:30 P.M..
We have a generator, thank goodness!
I did get to see the halftime show, LOVE Bruno!!
He is so smooth!
Yesterday I finished this rug, it's my design.
I offered a bigger rug for the January PHM update.
This one is 20" x 12."
I was walking back up to the house after feeding my chickens
and took a picture of the back of our house.
We have gotten a lot of snow this winter and they
are calling for more next week.
It is winter and I would rather have snow than
rain and mud.
Have a great week!!
