Winter of our discount tent

The sun is coming up over the tree line in the east.  It's all pink and orange.  The days are getting so short now.  Once we change the clocks, it'll seem even shorter.  The sun is up about 8 am and goes down by 6. 
We had our first snow on Tuesday and Wednesday.  It's melted now, except for the remnants of my son's snowball.  He's hoping it lasts all winter.
Our Newfie loves the snow and would rather sleep in it, than in her new straw in the doghouse.

A few things are left to do to get ready for the winter.  Some posts for a new corral, more barn cleaning (always), insulating windows, doors and floors, and a couple of rafters to go on the new roof my honey has been working on. 

Then...time to get serious about getting some Christmas gifts done.  That's work I love to do.

Lord help us this day to please you and make you smile.

We are in much the same with our daily to-do list before "real" winter arrives here in northern Vermont. I just moved our chickens to a smaller coop and now need to clean out where they were in the barn to prepare for 2 goats. Also we want to get the fence posts in too.
Yes, doing handwork by the woodstove is wonderful.
Warm wishes, Tonya
