Winter is definitely a time of slowing down on the homestead. It is just too cold to try to work on projects without a heated space to work in. We have had several below zero temperatures and even some -30 wind chills. Oh my goodness! It is just too cold!
It is amazing how quiet everything is too. The snow seems to silence all the noise.
Paths and garden beds that were so well used just a few months ago, sit idle, waiting on their due season to be active again.
All the animals are quiet too.
Even the goats are quiet. They quietly eat their hay and drink water all day long.
Our chickens who normally run free all over the homestead, wont even come out of their chicken house. They have a chicken size door on their house that is open all the time, and a small fence that is open all the time so they can run free. But they won’t come out in the snow. They are huddled inside, hiding out until warmer days.
I know how they feel.
I’m huddled inside too, waiting…
I’m waiting for sunshine…waiting for warmer days.
What is this winter like at your home?
