Winter Beauty

We had rather thick, early morning fog for a few consecutive days earlier this week. Since it was below freezing, it formed a white rime covering all the trees and cold surfaces.

Winter View

It’s pretty.

Chicken Pen Trees

More or less. I miss working outside. Winter put a stop to my fencing, shed building, wire pile removal, and other projects.

The sparrows’ wire pile.

The sparrows will miss their wire pile. 25-40 sparrows regularly use it for shelter.

Fencing and Building Project Halted for Winter

There’s >1000 feet of rolled wire fencing and 100 metal posts buried in snow about 30 feet in front of the snow-covered sawhorses and partially built small animal (or storage) shed.

I should learn to be more cold hardy. Maybe I should take up cross country skiing. There’s plenty of room for that in the pasture and some paths through the woods. I could get a bit of exercise and enjoy the snow rather than just look at it from the warmth of the house.

Nah. I’ll fill the bird feeders, have another cup of hot coffee and watch them from inside the house.

Slipped away from increasingly stressful, random, and violenturban life after 4 decades and retired early from wage jobs to see the sky, attune my soul to nature, live in the peaceful country, attempt to establish a small farm that at least partly pays the bills and die well.
