Six Month–An Update

01Jan14_Sunrise_300_1612It has been a while since I have posted, so, to make up for that issue, here is a picture of what we see almost every morning.

The image on the left if of sunrise, 01 January 2014 – a beautiful start to the New Year. 

In the mornings, with the exception of mid December when it was cold, we usually sit outside, drink coffee, and watch the sunrise.  Sometimes it is a bit foggy, but unless it is cold, we still sit outside in the mornings.  It is pleasant, quiet, and sometime entertaining with all of the birds and other animals.  In the summer and fall, when sunrise was to early for us, we sit outside and watch the sunset and later the stars, which is equally as enjoyable and beautiful as the sunrises.

We had flowers on the plants until the end of November when we started to get hard frosts at night.  The daytime temperatures were still quite warm until the second week of December.  In December and we had a few days with negative temperatures, but most days were in the 20’s or higher.  Temperatures are once again warming, and yesterday it was in the mid-50’s and sunny.  Looking forward to Spring, and have already received part of my seed order for the vegetable garden.

Since everyone likes sunrise pictures, here is one from 28 November 2013.  As with the previous image, these were taken from our back deck where we have coffee in the mornings.  Also, the Thanksgiving Turkey, our huge (less than one inch on 07 December 2013) snowstorm results.


While I have no pictures of them (yet), besides the regular farm animals, some of the animals that have visited us are a Silver/White/Gray Fox, a few Wolves, a very large cat critter (mountain loin?) that ran across the front of the property, several types of hawks and falcons, owls, and billions of Canadian Geese, which seem to over-winter here – Geese are everywhere. 

In closing – An image of us on our annual Christmas outing:
