We usually only have this kind of flooding in the spring but are experiancing it this winter. We are quite soggy right now and the temperatures are still getting down to around freezing most nights and lower in the twenties some nights. I guess this winter is going to be remembered by us as very cold and wet. If you wish to see more pictures of the flooding you can see them here on a farm blog post.
Most days this winter have been over cast, often with rain or drizzle. We have enjoyed it when we get a few warmer sunny days thrown in here or there. William and dad cut firewood on those days and the kids can get outside for a little while to play.
I am looking forward to spring when things will green up a bit and we will have more sunny days than rainy days.
But we enjoy and love all seasons around here. Winter is such a season of rest for us. In winter we have no baby farm animals to tend to. No gardens to plan, plant or weed. We have no vegetables to use up quick, can or freeze. So really this is our down time and we are loving it.
This is the time of year that I have free time. I mean really, times I can not work outside and the inside is fine. So in the winter months I bake and cook a lot. I sometimes read with the kids and do projects.
Now that we have gotten past the holidays, the flu that went thru and Elizabeths hospital stay... things have settled into a nice, boring quiet. :)
God is so good to us no matter the weather or season. Thank you God for this time of year.
