A Little Bit Chilly

December 16, 2010

It seems to be a bit cold all throughout the U.S. and the state of New York is no different.

We haven't had an enormous amount of snow.....yet.

It's been quite cold this week though.

Oliver and Emerson absolutely love the snow. 

They love to eat it and wrestle in it.

Cait loves the cold temperatures so she can sit in front of the pellet stove.

Jay had chicken duty yesterday morning and decided it was too cold so he would keep the girls in the coop for the day with their heater running.

They didn't like his style of decision-making. 

They aren't fond of a dictatorship.

This morning I had chicken duty. 

They went outside while I was cleaning inside and when I peeked out at them I saw a funny sight.

They were all sprawled out like it was summer.

I think they were trying desperately to make me understand they wanted their options kept open.

I left the outdoor door open for them.

They've been outside all day.

I now have happy chickens.

I'm sure tomorrow they will find something else they'd like.  Probably scrambled eggs or warm oatmeal with milk or yogurt.

I'm sure Lucy Lou will lead that rally.

For now I'll enjoy their happiness.  And the cold.

I have not yet attempted a vegan version of this.  If I get brave I'll let you know......  Be careful not to over bake it.

Fall Is Almost Over?

October 24, 2017

Is it possible that fall is almost over? Temp's here are in the upper 60's and low 70's so you'd never know that it's the end of October. This just doesn't usually happen! Even the leaf peepers were likely disappointed this was so warm that the leaves just kind of crumbled off of the trees. Although they were pretty, there didn't seem to be the same brilliance of color that is...
