Winter morning

The Thumb has been blanketed with snow again midweek. Wednesday evening's snow was soft, quiet -- almost comforting after the gale force windy snows of the holidays. Here are a few photos of Graywood Farm on Thursday morning.

The weathervane on top the machine shed has taken a beating this winter. If you click on either photo to see it larger, you'll see the Cooperative Elevator buildings just at the horizon pretty much straight up the driveway.

Robin Buschlen's crew clears our drive very early, usually in the dark. This morning they were at the Mennonite Church next door around 5 am. The sound of the tractor plowing snow woke me so I was having a first cup of coffee when our driveway was plowed.

We Can't Wait!

I'm a week late in posting any Christmas photos but this one just makes me smile every time I see it. Finny (15 months), Tessa (5 years) and Max (4 years) were asked to pose in front of the tree before we opened presents on Saturday, Dec. 27th. Just look at the delight in Finn's face, the anticipation in Tessa's eyes and consider the exuberance shown by Max's upside-down posture. Oh that we could capture the essence of this happiness on the days when life lays us low!
