What a snowy weekend we had here in Southern Ontario. I went for a walk to my cabin yesterday and took some pictures. We had over 2 feet of snow. Very chilly and windy today.
The cabin in the snow.

I love how the camera captured the falling snow.

Our homestead.

Kit had to plow her way through the snow due to the fact that she is so short.

Louis enjoyed the walk but he got covered in snow. Sydney chose not to go with us.

Just got back from an awesome mini vacation in Berlin Ohio. Seven of us ventured down to Amish Country for three days, and what an amazing time we had. Lots of shopping, some great food and wine, and lots and lots of laughs. I had the best pizza I have ever tasted down there at a little pub called "Uncorked" in Roscoe Village not far from our hotel. They had some very interesting beers and wines too. We had to sample some of those with dinner of course. It was a long drive down there, but well worth it. We also made a stop at Lehman's and we enjoyed seeing all the products they had there. I think we all did a little Christmas shopping too. There is a great Amish market down there and I brought home some home made butter and other goodies. It was also nice to get home to DH and all of our critters. Here are a few pictures I took of our adventure.
We're all having breakfast at Bob Evans.

Today I went for lunch and did some shopping at a couple of quilt shops with a friend and she gifted me with this sweet little pinkeep that she made. I just love it. Thanks so much Marg.
I hope everyone is staying safe in this nasty weather.

This was my workout yesterday. It is the third load like this we have put into our woodshed. Still have 3 more loads to go. We heat our home with wood, so we need quite a bit to last over the winter months. I also took a picture of my window box outside of my summer kitchen. I don't imagine they will last much longer, they will be gone soon when we get a really hard frost. For now, I am enjoying them. I am getting exciting about our girls upcoming Ohio trip, should be lots of fun. I think we may just have to make it a yearly event.

Made these ginger ornies for a Christmas ornie swap and they went in the mail yesterday. Love doing the swap thing. Hope they have a safe trip.
On another note, I have a big load of firewood to stack this morning. I was too tired to do it last night after eating a roast beef dinner, so I thought I'd leave it to the morning. Good idea I think.

 I took this picture this evening of my DH holding our 7 kittens. They are starting to explore around the barn, so I asked him to hold them while I brought the horses in. I didn't want them to get stepped on by a horse. They are so cute!
