End of Jan Shots

..for those of you who are interested..I did have a ‘month long’ birdfeeder I made last year..it was too hard to refill..to the point where it was more of a pain in the ass to fill it then fill up the regular bird feeder every other day:

..gosh I hope the snow holds off for 4 more months!

..and some coyote scat on our loop..have not heard them very much over the month and there were not any tracks..not really shocking considering only places with no sun have any snow at all in the area.

Winter Wood

..not that I want to curse things and get craploads of snow or anything..but it has been a fairly warm ( for the area ) and snow free winter so far. There, I said it. Let it be shown that in no way, shape or form am I complaining about the lack of both cold temperatures and ice based demondry ( aka snow). As a result the woodpile seems to be stacking up well against the elements..yes the pun was intended. We are roughly 1/2 way through the wood burning season and are nowhere near the 1/2 way point in wood usage..which might be a problem come end of wood burning season as we have plans for the area where the wood is actually stacked now ( not the picture, the rest of the wood bank on the side of the house)..but then again, I will take the warm(er) temperatures any day of the week..we can always move the unused pile to the new wood area further from the house.

..and for the record there HAS been storms but followed by warmer weather and rain.

Happy News Year!

Better late than never. A* and I have not really had many NEW jobs, activities or things to do as of late and as such we don’t post much..cause there is nothing to post about which has not been said on past posts and I am not a huge fan of posting the same things over and over..so here is a post about plowing snow with the tractor..We DID have snow in December..then it all melted but now we have more snow..exciting!!

Other than this, going to work and Holiday funtimes with family things are fairly steady around these parts. Lugging wood, cutting kindling, shovelling, checking trail cameras, plowing, cutting trails through the woods..sorry to be less than exciting but such is life! Take care and Happy 2017!
