Winter Wonderland


I do love snow and am usually happy when it's coming down. But yesterday was our studio tour and it really curtailed business. I did have plenty of time to run out and take photos. The light was dim and made the pictures seem black and white. This is the lane next to us. One customer (one of the 20 who ventured out) said it looked just like one of those country lanes featured in calendars. I said it is a country lane and maybe I'll put it on my calendar.


Come on in


My pear tree still has leaves on and it looked all splendorous in the snow.




I've started to feed Mocha grain so now she has turned into a whiny baby. She's super thin (like a runway model sheep) so I want to make sure she gets extra feed. When she sees me she runs over and demands corn. I can't come out my back door without her spotting me and baaahing. When I'm in my studio, she sees me in the window and just stares. (kinda scary, stalker sheep!) Get a grip, Mocha. It's not all about the food! But it is nice to pet her sweet head and give her a kiss when she comes up.


I got this dreamy little tractor from my friend Beth. Love it!


Casey practicing his sad eyes, hoping to be let in.

Give me a hand.


Globe-al view


This is the lane that goes down to the farm behind us. Not as pretty as the other direction. It's a mish mush of gates and mean signs.


and this is my side field. You are welcome to trudge through the snow for a cup of hot cider and a ginger cookie. Hope to see you on the studio tour!

Great post.

Someone sent our snow south and it ended up in the Santa Cruz mountains not up here in Mendocino county.

They did leave the cold. 18 at the barn this morning. Even the buckets inside were pretty frozen so hauled out the bucket warmer and went to work.

Sorry the weather derailed your day. Kiss the Mocha for me. My goats do the same thing little beggers.
