February 2015


We had some really beautiful weather in February!  
The sun came up and glowed through the foggy mornings.




The eagles were often close by.  My good camera was inside and I was outside when this eagle perched on the tree at the edge of the property so I just used my phone.




The paperwhites from the extra bulbs that I planted in fall outside came up and started blooming.
There have been some chilly days and yet they seem hardy enough to open up.



This picture of the Rhubarb was taken early in February.  
By now...
you can imagine I'm getting hungry to Rhubarb Platz.



I really don't love decorating sugar cookies that much.


But... 
I love those that I decorate them for and the "love" easily outweighs the "don't love" part of that equation. 




I picked up some Valentine balloons and delivered my treats! 



This fellow enjoys tedious little things.
Even with his man handling of the felt pen...
he has an idea in mind and slowly works toward that goal.

I think that will be a good trait in his life.




He likes shopping with me.


Oh... and I turned 56 this February!

On my birthday... there is always a photo to document the event!  
That day the sun was shining and we drank our coffee outside.

I was treated to a week and then some of lunches out, dinners out...
flowers and gifts and many many sweet birthday wishes.




When the sun is shining on the day that sheets are washed...
they just have to hang outside.



I noticed that my sorrel is coming up.

Now I'm hungry for Summer Borscht!




Last weekend he mowed the lawn.
  


I noticed that little toys are often preferable to big toys.


Meanwhile...
on the farm we continue to work through the reality of avian flu in our region.

February is always a busy month with a flock change, barn cleaning, powerwashing, manure cleanout...
but with the additional paperwork of the avian flu...
we are happy to say goodbye to February 2015.




If you have to do a lot of paperwork...
it's good to have a buddy system in place!




That about sums up our February here!

all for now...
with love,
