Thursday Farm Photo: Lone But Not Alone

Enjoying a Little Quiet Time

© Copyright 2009, the foodie farm blog where I guess it's because I spent the first 26 years of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area (and decided to move to Missouri rather than to Maine or Minnesota 14 years ago) that I still feel a sense of wonderment every time we have a snowfall like this. It always feels so peaceful, too. And then the outgoing water pipes freeze (yet again). But at least we still have incoming water—and electricity!


  1. Peaceful is just what I thought of when I saw this pic. Gack on the constantly freezing pipes :-( Electricity is a good thing - I'd rather lose the outgoing pipes than the incoming if one direction has to go.

  2. Eek. Lone sheep always make me nervous. If they're not with the flock, I automatically assume something is wrong with them. So I stand there watching until the loner starts walking and I can see there's nothing grievously wrong with it.

    Yes, this is how I spend my days. It's an exciting life I lead.

  3. Beautiful in it's simplicity. Thank you.

    Great way to start my morning! Cup of coffee and your blog.

  4. Burrrrr...Looks really cold. :-)

    Love the blog!

  5. Hi Everybody,
    So glad you enjoyed the photo - it's one of my new favorites.

    I hear your fear, but not to worry this time - there were 27 sheep and a donkey just to the right of the picture. : )

  6. i adore your blog and the fabulous pictures! i am vicariously living on a farm through them. launched my own blog last week and would love for you to pop in some time!



  7. I have been thinking of you and Farm Man this week. You usually have the same weather as us, only I am on the southern end of the weather that is moving east. Glad you had electricity...

  8. I have no concept of this weather. It has been 76 degrees here in Texas this week. I do so love your blog. SusieAlene


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. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
