We’ve taken our usual sojourn some 2300 miles from Illinois to Oregon this summer. We do this every year, as you probably know if you’ve been following the blog for some time. This year our schedule has let us be more relaxed, more able to just enjoy hanging out at the farm and spending timeContinue reading “Oregon My Oregon”
I want it to be sunny AND warm. Is that too much to ask? It looks gorgeous outside today. Blue sky, slightly breezy, crisp. Looking out there, it seems as though I could grab my cup of coffee, the book I’m reading, and head out to the chairs we have on our back deck. TheContinue reading “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”

It’s chill out there. Wow. We are getting big wind gusts as well. Which is why we have a wind advisory in effect until 10 AM CDT tomorrow. Gusts are supposed to be at 45 MPH. I believe it. Whoa nelly! Just sayin’… the people at the clinic this morning, when I went in forContinue reading “Wind, Rain, and Cold… Oh My!”

Hey all… been a few days. Again. We had a busy weekend, a lay low day on Monday (Karen had to work, but we didn’t go anywhere), went to get some new glasses ordered for Karen yesterday and stopped off at the park to take the dogs for a walk on the way home, andContinue reading “Maintenance”

February Snow, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. This looks like several pictures I’ve taken so far this winter. Same snow, different day. When I got home today it was still there. White. Covering everything. I’m whining aren’t I?
Barely Hanging On, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Winter is still hanging on in Oregon. More snow yesterday. We’ve had snow at our place continuously since December 14. Amazing. Taken with the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT.

Yesterday we’d had enough. The power went off three times over the course of three days. The first time it was off for seven hours. The second it was off for most of an evening, which just happened to be Christmas Eve. When it came back on we were thrilled, silly us, thinking we wouldContinue reading “Our Christmas Story”
Crowned, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The snow was piling up big time and still is today. Yesterday I was able to walk around during a break in the snow fall and take a few photos. Martin walked with me and took his own as well. After this Martin started building a snowman. Pictures ofContinue reading “Crowned”

Piling Up, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Well… it’s snowing. Again. All day. It’s been coming down since some time before 7:00 this morning. Non stop. Snowing. We had plans. We did. We needed to run errands. Go to get some stuff for the rental. Start working on it. Meet our electrician over there. Meet someContinue reading “Piling Up”
Snow Fall, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. This shot was taken while I was standing under one of our big evergreens in the yard. This was a few hours ago. I’d say a couple more inches have fallen since then.
Covered Maple, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. So far about 2 inches out there, but it’s snowing again and weather reports say it may continue on and off all day into tomorrow morning. Who knows how much we’ll get… all i know for now… it’s cold, snowy, and continuing to accumulate.
Blanket of Snow, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Back to the snow pictures of this morning. And in fact, it’s snowing again out there this morning. So lovely, the snow coming down at the same time there’s a shaft of sunlight coming through the trees across the road. Very beautiful combination.
After The Snow, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We woke up this morning to a couple of inches of snow on the ground. The snow came on top of a layer of ice we already had. It’s been cold here lately. Below freezing for the last few days. At least, below freezing at our place. WeContinue reading “After The Snow”
