welcome to our farmhouse…life is good

Thursday, March 7

last blast of winter?

The winter has been long here, and downright bone-chilling some days. But now that it's March, soon enough, the winds howling across the fields will slacken, warm, and there will be sunshine and the first hints of green. We'll tentatively open a window and take in the sweet aroma of a new season.

But until then, it's good to revisit some of our wintertime memories. As cold has the season has been, it was certainly filled with snowy fun!

The sledding hill...ready for some fun!

First run down the hill...
Whee ha!!

Walking back up is always less fun than sledding down.

Now THIS is the way to go up a hill!

I love the Stillmeadow books by Gladys Taber...they're all about country life, simple things, the changing seasons, and her experiences of living in an old farmhouse. 

This quote is by her, and seems to sum up our past winter season...

“We need time to dream,
time to remember,
 and time to reach the infinite.
Time to be.”
-Gladys Taber
