On our walk yesterday, we were greeted with day old snow…I immediately noticed the pattern of Boo’s footsteps as he raced ahead. But then I started noticing footprints that belonged to no one we know…for elimination purposes, the top photos are ours, the rest seem to belong to birds, squirrels and other woodsy creatures we […]
It snowed again last night…I woke up this morning to find a light blanket of the white stuff outside.

Oh, yes, that’s what I’m having…and not just ANY peppermint ice cream…it is Ree Drummond/The Pioneer Woman‘s peppermint ice cream…full of half and half, egg yolks, sugar and heavy cream…breakfast of champions! OK, now that we have that out of the way…what the heck is going on with the weather? It is now halfway through December […]
Happy Sunday, all! And it’s not even 8am yet!
