It's Melting!

Well, despite the fact that we didn't get over 20 degrees today, the snow of yestermorn is beginning to melt a little. The outdoor animals had a hard day in the cold though, that was helped a little by the fact the sun shone. For the second day in a row, the chickens stayed in the chicken house, even with the pophole open, because they are smart birds and didn't see any reason to go out and troop through the snow. We loaded them up on feed and scratch and they did fine, to the tune of 8 eggs for us!

Even though it appears your blogger thinks only about her animals, it's not true. I have become a magazine addict, fueled by the fact that I work in the marketing department of an international corporation which advertises in many magazines. We get complimentary copies of most of those, and I have become a magazine hoarder. I force myself to recycle once a month, to try to keep the numbers down so that husband doesn't groan when I come in the door. I subscribe to a fair number, as well, and am lamenting the fact that two of my favorites, Mary Englebreit's Home Companion, and Country Home, have ceased to publish as of last month and this. They were little bits of beauty in this farm home which needs so much work done on it, and inspiration. The last issue of Country Home, in fact, was a very beautiful "keeper". As Susan Branch says on her website... what's next, Country Living? Say it ain't so!

I watched "Finding Neverland" last night after getting everything finished for the day. I am not a Johnny Depp fan, but I have always been a Peter Pan fan since a little child. I sobbed my way through the end of the movie, and then sat down after church this morning to find out the true facts of the J.M. Barrie/Peter Pan story. It was very interesting, and much literary license had been taken by the movie makers but in all, I think it was a good movie and made me appreciate Johnny Depp more than I ever have before. Would I go see his next movie? Ummmm no... but I might watch it on tv some Saturday night.

And what would ending the weekend be without more Pony/Gander pictures?

  1. Mary, I've enjoyed my visit to your blog.
    What precious animals you have. I feel bad for them having to deal with this Midwest cold
    I enjoyed the movie "Finding Neverland" and I sobbed like you.
    It's so very cold here in Ohio. The radio says it feels like -6 degrees, it's 9 degrees burr so cold.
    Blessings... stay warm! ~Mary~ :-}
