A Visit From Mother Nature

“Wow, it really snowed last night! Isn’t it wonderful?Everything familiar has disappeared! The world looks brand new!
A new year…a fresh clean start !It’s like having a big white sheet of paper to draw on! A day full of possibilities! It’s a magical world, Hobbes, ol’ buddy…let’s go exploring!”
–Bill Watterson: It’s a Magical World: A Calvin and Hobbes Collection
It has snowed for about 24 hours now, the Blizzard of 2010.
Bob has had hours and hours on the tractor.
The winds are whipping around the outside of the barn.
The inside of the barn is full of happy critters.
 The Big Boys are just now eating their dinner and taking the chill off their bones.
Blankets are off for now, they will go back on later.
Christmas is officially over now, it was different this year.It is difficult when what you love (the farm) takes you away from those you love. Starting to focus on goals for 2011, thinking we will need part time barn help or  perhaps an intern, minimally a good pet sitter for occasional days off.
Have many other goals most related to growing the farm, adding a web sight, promoting the sales of my prints and perhaps some classes lots to think of.
 A good way to start the new year, open to change and growth.
