Weekly Photo Roundup | April 2 – 8

It was a week of extremes. Snow and blizzard conditions, every task a struggle against the weather, followed by the bluest of blue skies and temperatures in the 40s, then the 50s, and continuing to climb. Cribbage during the storm. The crunch of snow underfoot and the wonderfully welcome sound of running water as snow melted. Stumbling through huge drifts into the cozy warmth of the calving shed, filled to way more than capacity to keep cows from calving in a snowbank. Two days later everything is outside and sacked out in the sun. Calves are happy little sleep monsters, the cats are soaking up the sun on the deck, and the chickens find a bare spot to dust bathe. Puddles and clear skies on a 5 mile walk up to my in-laws’ house followed by a leisurely coffee. A successful grafting of a calf. Everything breathes a sigh of relief as the temps warm and the water runs and living is a little more comfortable.

  1. Whew! It all looks cold and damp and makes me want to be inside with hot tea and a book, You, of course, would let me know at the end of the day how it all went, and I would brush the snow off your parka and give you a warm smooch on your cold cheek and ask your tea preference. One thing that is clear about God: He knows that we’re all different and that different aspects of His creations satisfy and soothe our different needs. You’re a talented photographer and narrator, and maybe someday there’ll be books, ala Ansel Adams or someone even more sensitive, in your name. I love you.
