Happy New Year!

Our weather was challenging this week beginning with freezing rain, then snow, and now winds. This combination closed all the interstates and caused 'No Travel Advised' warnings for the rest of the roads yesterday. We didn't get the masses of snow forecast (funny how they never mention those predictions when they fail to happen) but enough to drift. I'm just happy the power stayed on!

It's hard to photograph beauty this time of year since I favor lush greens and life.

Here is pure life-force in a compact but intense bundle. Meet Harley who lives next door. He is a blue heeler/corgi cross and this is his first winter. I think he is adorable.

I hope everyone had a safe new year's eve.

Happy New Year to you! We had rain then the temperature dropped and the wind picked up. But no snow. Stay safe and warm!
I agree, your neighbor is adorable.
May 2011 be healthy, happy and fulfilling for you.

Happy New year to you and yours.

Our weather has thawed BUT we are apparently going to have some more of the white stuff this week, with more freezing temps. Ho hum, the hens will be cross!
