Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Winter "Flowers"

 Some people get excited when the first spring flowers come out. We get to look at these flowers all winter long, generally they bloom every couple of weeks. Like most, they do not last long. The sun is an enemy, not a friend.
 It does make for some pretty scenery though. The temperature this morning was -20C (-4F) and the wind has changed to the north east. The moisture in the air was knocked out and we can expect a cold front and maybe some snow to wander through. Yeah, more time to play with the equipment.
 The neighbour's horses way over yonder do what horses do, eat and eat no matter what the weather is like.
Note the nicely ploughed driveway! The chains on the quad really work well and I can plough uphill and down with ease.

Life is really good on the Acreage!

Well, good for you. It is pretty. But poor poor pitiful me...we have had a very mild winter, only snow flurries here and there...and the temps have been in the 50s during most days. I feel cheated. This is unheard of.

We in the States don't mind sending lots of HOT AIR up north to you---why not send some of your cold air down here? :)

I just love seeing pictures of that frost...we've barely even had light frost here this winter. Much as I'm a fair weather fan, I must admit that I miss the beauty of the snow. Sure is pretty!

Gorgeous, days like that are always the best part of winter, make it all seem worthwhile for the beauty :)

Wow, beautiful. I love those winter days with blue skies and sun shining. Not the extreme temps, though!
