Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Snow is coming.....

It's official, Old man winter is coming...and bringing with him an early snow..

 A few of the  local deer were down in the yard this morning feeding on what little green grass  is still available to them. There was a thin sheet of ice on our patio and a small frozen pool of rain water in the yard. It rained hard yesterday. The chicken's water  pans outside their coop were frozen and a real chill in the air as the morning clouds moved over the hillside.  It was nice and toasty inside, while we drank our morning coffee...but The weather forcast reads : 
"Tomorrow night: Rain and snow in the evening turning to all snow late. Low 31F. Winds WSW at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precip 70%. Some snow accumulation possible." ( not sure what that means) but I did purchase a couple new pair of gloves... and I might just need them.
This can only mean November has arrived and December is on it's way.  Actually I am kind of excited about the changing season as well as the recent time change. It gets dark sooner and my days are full.
 Living here at Blue Sky Farm is a happy place to be.
I love the holidays and I am inspired to get on with the decorating and cooking. I want to make bread, candy and other goodies. This feeling of being "Home" is Welcomed after a busy summer and fall.. I hope to get back  to the kitchen this week, blogging and crafting. My crock pot will be filled with soups. I will  start on some  projects I have in mind. It could be a long winter and I need to keep busy. I even have a couple books I have yet to open. So  Welcome Winter! Just give me a couple more days to get .I must find my coat & boots just in case...."accumulation" means more than a couple inches.

As much as I hate to admit winter is upon us. I was in Bend over the weekend and drove home in snow over the pass. I guess I best do the same and find the winter coat and gloves. Stay warm and do lots of baking, yum, yum!!!!

I know what you mean about being "home" and winter really allows us that time to just be indoors and nest and eat and cook. Last winter was rough so I have been dreading this year but it's hear like it or not and I know I will be excited when that white stuff comes down for the first time. Stay warm and enjoy it!
