Herd Bulls await a bucket of alfalfa cake.
Cows coming out for their cake.
The days are turning colder and colder. This morning it was a meager 6 degrees as we headed out to feed the cows. The sky was beautifully bright and blue and the air was brisk.
We are expecting single digit temperatures tonight with windchill temperatures as low as -10.
About 4-5 inches of snow overnight.
For comfort, I'm building fires in the wood stove and lighting candles. I like the hazelnut candle best. It seems any type of flame makes the home feel more cozy and warm.
Lately I'm drinking more hot tea and trying to keep it herbal (Stash Lemon-Ginger) since I don't need the extra caffeine of my favorite drink, strong fresh-ground coffee or my second favorite, chai black tea. I really like the Rishi Teas and so far, my favorite chai is Rishi Masala. Add some hot milk and a tiny bit of honey and you've got something good in your hands. It makes a nice dessert! What's your favorite wintertime drink?
