The Winter Life…

As I sit here, it is snowing like crazy and it’s very cold.  But, like it or not, we all have our ways of dealing with winter.

Olive, the pug, has found that sitting in front of the propane stove until she is warm does it for her.


Our bird friends make more visits to the feeder.  They mostly sit and wait their turns.


Although the goldfinches are willing to wait, once it’s their turn they like to sit inside the feeder eating their fill and pitching their rejects on the ground.


I don’t think you will hear this little field mouse complaining.


Hoping you all stay warm and safe!

Olive is a kindred spirit. We know where to hang out when it's cold! :-) That little mouse is so adorable! Great photos of all the animals.

Sweet pictures. Lucky Olive to have a nice fire to sleep beside. Love the little mouse picture. It's snowing and cold here again today. Stay warm.
