The frost makes everything looks so icy and Narnia-like.
The wool on the sheep had an extra sparkle to it.
The cows almost look like ants trailing down the hills.
Even the old John Deere A tractor looked pretty covered in frost!
We had our annual bull sale this week too. We had a great turn-out and sold all the bulls to new owners. The delivery process is in full swing now. This is a picture of the local sale ring and that's one of our bulls. Not a great picture, but I thought you might like to see it. There were lots of ranchers in hats!
The two college boys are home now and it's fun having them to cook for again. We had Creamy Sausage Stew (a favorite) for supper tonight along with baking powder biscuits & honey. Tomorrow lots of family will be out to the ranch for an Indian Taco Fiesta and some fun & games. We'll probably have to take time out to watch the Denver Broncos football game. You know who is playing?? Right! Tim Tebow! Isn't he terrific?! We've always been huge Denver fans in this house, and now we're having fun watching TT mesmerize the talking heads of football.
Just one more week until Christmas Eve! I hope you're enjoying the anticipation. The two sons are going to go cut a Christmas tree for me in the Hills, and I still have all the gifts yet to wrap and goodies to bake. It seems I always take my sweet time to usher in the season. One-day-at-a-time works for me.
I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day. We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year. As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays - let them overtake me unexpectedly - waking up some fine morning and suddenly saying to myself: "Why, this is Christmas Day!" ~David Grayson
Peach has been noticing that we are all receiving "birthday cards" in the mail. Out of the mouths of babes!
