Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Cheryl takes Yam a Christmas dinner

The house is clean and decorated, with food for a party of 50.  It’s time for our annual Christmas Open House! 

We hosted it once many years ago for Cheryl’s parents and all their friends and relatives around here, and those folks looked forward to it so much that we’ve just kept it up every year since.  But right now there’s 5” of snow on the ground & some more on the way with 15-20 MPH winds.  The roads aren’t bad, but they sure aren’t going to get any better.  So in deference to all those older folks who would have to miss it, we’re postponing the party to Valentine’s Day.

BUT.....

Everything’s tucked in ...

The propane tank is full ...

Yam is warm and dry in her barn with plenty of hay and chop ...

And the house is clean and decorated, with plenty of food ...

Time for music and raspberry cider and cookies by the fire, and a walk in the snow and a hot bowl of posole and a fresh tomato sandwich.

(Yep, we’re still getting some tasty toms ripening up from that last mass harvest before the hard frost in November.)

When life hands you wintry weather ... make snow cream!
