Lord have mercy! We had yet another snow day yesterday!
Sunday was horrific, with church services being cancelled all over West Michigan.
Then to add insult to injury: Monday was yet another snow day!
Austin got dressed up in his karate outfit (found at Goodwill last year!) and pretended he was a chef. His aunt made him a paper chefs hat and I drew on a mustache and goatee with washable brown markers.
(BTW: washable markers are GREAT! You can use them to create "tatoos", mustaches, sideburns, and even add brilliant yellow/pink/blue/purple/green stripes to your hair!)
Here he is twirling his mustache!
He then made fresh squeezed lemonade and his own lunch of peanut butter and jam sandwich.
I ventured out to get the mail and brought my camera along.
This is no trick of the camera.
The day was really this dreary.
Nary a car in sight, as the wind chills were -25, and roads were still deemed hazardous.
Bless their hearts.
The hen house.
Where the 9 hens and the one rooster have been cooped up( pun intended) for days.
I tell Farmboy every morning as I go out to tend the chickens...
"If I'm not back in 10 minutes, send for reinforcements, I could be buried alive!"
Yesterday, a hawk came right up on our front porch and plucked a mourning dove(who was eating his own lunch) out for his lunch.
The circle of life.
In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God.
Thank you Lord, that spring is on it's way!
