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

Still Snowing!

My faithful companion doesn't seem to mind the snow, as long as I'm the one breaking trail. It's almost time to get out the snowshoes. The snow is about a foot and a half deep now and it's getting hard to slog through it

 Pile #3 did not burn as spectacular as the other two mainly due to the large number of fire wood blocks in it. I told every body "If you don't take it, I'm going to burn it." I couldn't even give it away, cut, but not split and beside the road.
 I will have to shovel off this pile before burning. There are about 3 half ton truck loads in this pile.
It was a good day to go out and toast my buns by a rip roaring fire.

I love that first picture of your dog (can't remember her name!!!) covered with snow. She's adorable! I think too, a fire would be welcome in such cold weather.

Sadly that is what I've discovered. If you offer a mess of greens to some, you have to wash, cook, season and deliver.

At least you were warm while you worked and the ashes will feed the grass.

That is one beautiful snow covered dog.

The photos are gorgeous! Especially the first one. Your dog is one photogenic sweetie. Love how you captured the fire in the second photo. I would have loved to have had the wood for making charcoal.

Your photos are glorious, especially the first one of your dog. I think snow looks lovely, yet I know how cold it can feel. We are having heat waves in Oz.. everyday is sweltering. I am praying we don't get bush fires, yet our eucalyptus tree ignite easily.Once they start they burn for ages before they can be stopped. Then the days are hazy and smoke filled. Have a lovely Christmas Ian and all your family as well.

Your dog likes the snow too lol.It's a shame you had to burn the wood,that would burn good in a fireplace or wood burning stove.It looks so warm in a cold place.
