Each morning in the winter, when the temperatures are very cold, I take over Abby's morning chore, and head out the door with a warm pail of water and some grain for the chickens.
Here is the view as I walk out the front door, this morning the sun was rising.behind the evergreens.
I am still in my flannel nightgown with long underwear and wool sweater under my barn coat.
The fresh cold air feels refreshing as I listen to the crisp crunching as my boots step on the snow.
As I walk toward the chicken coop, and look to up to the left ~
the beautiful morning sky is turning blue with the moon still bright.
What a blessing that I get to experience this each morning, even when, like yesterday, the wind was howling and the snow was falling down my back - I rejoice about the amazing gift we are given to live on such a beautiful earth.
What glorious photos Tonya! The crispness and freshness of the snow. I can almost feel the chill in the air. I am sitting here in short sleeves as I type in the afternoon heat of South Africa looking at the refreshing snow... How blessed you are to experience this:)ReplyDelete
Love the photos! I can feel the chill! I thought I was the only person who fed in jammies... :)ReplyDelete
How lovely. It's been a couple of years since we last had chickens, and I know exactly how this feels! I truly miss that part of my day!ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos! AND beautiful snow. WE've only had rain but hopefully Wed. and Thur. we'll get some snow as it gets in the teens and a storm is coming in.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful time to get out for chores. I love to be out doing chores and watch the sun come out.
I don't think I'd survive it but I admire all of you who can! It's certainly a beautiful way to start your day.ReplyDelete
similar here in Ohio, but I love reading how others are out early doing the same chores:)ReplyDelete
What a wonderful way to start the mornings and in your nightgown no less! I love starting my morning with a walk outside (:ReplyDelete
The snow covered woodpile is so beautiful. What a blessing to be able to breathe in such loveliness at the beginning of each day.ReplyDelete
I love doing early morning chores so peaceful. RebekahReplyDelete
Wow. You are a nice mommy. I can't stand the cold myself and would have to bundle a lot more! LOL! You know being from the way south and all.ReplyDelete
It is such a beautiful earth and I love your first photo!!ReplyDelete
Ah to have our feet planted on top of Mother Earth! This post strangely enough reminded me of my smoking cigarette days. Yes, I smoked for 20 years! At the very end - I smoked outside, and spent a lot of time outside smoking. I didn't have children (we are always outside now) so when I smoked I enjoyed that time being outside by myself during all hours of the day. When I quit smoking, I missed going outside more than the nicotine. Wow -!!! There is something magical about time alone outside in any kind of weather.ReplyDelete
Love & Light, Nicole
This is so beautiful and serene- I can feel the morning stillness! Thank you for sharing, Tonya.ReplyDelete
your yard looks so beautiful all covered in snow!ReplyDelete
I know exactly how you feel about being blessed. Don't you just love the mornings!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful moment! My trek to our chicken coop looks a lot different but I still experience a lot of joy to tending to them!ReplyDelete
