Winter Colored Sheep

But this is all about to be wiped out by white. It just started to snow, and they're predicting 7 or 8 inches of accumulation by tomorrow. Unfortunately we have a lot of driving to do today. Yikes.

  1. Hello,

    I love your site. Nice pictures and an interesting life. But then you make it interesting.

    I am also into bread. I have tried your pitas and your wheat beer bread. Both of them were wonderful.

    i dont know if you ever tried this tip but the microwave serves as a great proofer. I put a cup of water in the microwave and heat for two minutes. I leave it in there and put in my dough. the warm moist environment is ideal. To kick it up a notch i usually make myself some tea. my micro is above my stove. in an case, the added heat works wonders.

    I actually just started a blog on Google called Lori's Lipsmacking Goodness. Of course one of the computers I use crashed. So it will be getting better soon.



  2. I wish it would snow that much over here in maryland - all we got today was rain.

    I love you blog. I recently got into bread making and I love it. I want to try all of your recipe one by one.

    love your pictures as well. Thanks for sharing.


  3. Safe journey, Susan. I'm a weenie when it comes to driving in snow!

  4. So...did it snow??

    I'd love a picture of the same scene with the snow. All we're getting is cold rain.

    hugs to you!

  5. Love it! I hope your sheep do well in the snow. Our neighborhood wild ones (mainly rabbits) seem to be surviving our current cold snap. I think the ones who shelter under our deck have it pretty darn good for urban wild creatures.

  6. I think costa rica should keep out of your comments section. He or she is obviously interested in selling something that I don't think you're interested in!!!! Come on, beach real estate??? What would the sheep eat on the beach???

    I hope your drive was safe. I'm sure that living where you do, you're pretty much on your own as far as snow removal goes. Amazingly, it's the same here in Pittsburgh, where it (surprisingly) snows several times a year, and the city pretty much has no idea how to deal with it! (YEAR AFTER YEAR . . .) I have to admit, I'm I bit jaded having lived 6 years in Syracuse, NY, where 3 feet of snow was no problem. My ex husband was a high school teacher, and even if there was 3 feet of snow overnight, SCHOOLS WERE OPEN! Bummer for him! Syracuse knew how to deal with snow, that's for sure!

    I too would love to see the sheep in the snow. Of course, I don't have to be out in the cold taking the pictures! Thanks for the wonderful pictures and writing. A new posting on this site is the first thing I check from my e-mail site (don't tell my boss!)

  7. We've only had one decent snow all winter, so I'm going to have to live vicariously through your upcoming snowfall. :)

  8. What a BEAUTIFUL Site!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions.
