Now that is what I call a snowstorm!

the homestead...with snow...

Well the inevitable finally happened..we got our first real storm last night…it had snowed but not more then 2-3 inches..which is easy to drive in. I had gone out and shovelled late in the evening last night ( around the truck ) but today we need to get to work!

..the dogs love snow days..A* gets to stay home...I get to go to work. Nova loves it so much she shoots lasers out of her eyes to celebrate.

..the driveway was not packed down but I did not have any issues driving out. I did leave huge ruts in the road/driveway..I need a way to keep that from happening because once it hardens in that configuration I am going to have issues…

junk snow art..I don't know art but I know what I like..and I like it when snow covers the things I don't like so I don't have to see it.

..the other thing about the drivway was that there were around 15 trees blocking my way out. The show was heavy so I kept having to stop and shake the trees in the way to remove the snow..then they would pop up and out of the way..this is a temporary solution..I will need to cut some down. Overall the first snow storm went better than expected.

1st Christmas..


What is Christmas without a Christmas tree? What a completed house needs is a beautiful Christmas tree..and since our place is still being drywalled and we could not find the tree stand we had to improvise. So tonight I went outside and hacked the top off a pine, cut off all the limbs on one side and screwed it into a wall.

Nova disguises herself as an unwrapped present

..sure it looks like crap..but as the sayings go: ‘’s the thought that counts.’ and ‘it is better to give than to recieve’ long as the dogs like it I am OK with it. It is the 23rd now and on the 26th this monstrosity is coming down.

Snow Milk

First (small) snowfall in the new place..good thing we got that woodstove installed. I am also glad it was the weekend and not a workday..I had fears of snow in here but this looks like it is going to be fine! A* takes a moment to celebrate and drink milk in the first snow of the year which is a tradition…starting next year.

I have not seen any neighbours out shovelling. Odd.
