Morning walk

 Took a morning walk and took a few pictures.  We've had frosty mornings and mild days here this past week.  So far a wonderful winter.  Not much snow, or cold.  I'm rather liking it.  Love that the heating bills are low. 
 
What we see out our kitchen window.  The dark clouds in the far background look like mountains! A couple of the cows are pictured.  The others must be off to the side.  Our youngest calf has been feeling frisky and getting out - exploring - daily.  Then when we go out, she runs back to the pen!  The little stinker!
This is snow and ice frozen in place having started to slide off one of the barn roofs. The corrigated ripples of the steel roof makes quite the pattern!
The frosty tree against such a blue sky is beautiful!  The snow and ice crystals just sparkled - too bad pictures don't show that.

Too soon warmer weather will come and we won't have any more frosty mornings! 

Here's Jessica's t-shirt quilt I started at Christmas time.   Just finished sewing on the outside border, and it's now ready to take to the quilter to get finished.  It will have red polka dot backing and binding.  Will show you the completed project when it's done.  Also have still been busy crocheting.  That's almost every evening when I sit down.  Have to keep busy doing something!

Have a great weekend!

Those are beautiful frosty pictures. The sky is so blue and really pretty. I am enjoying the mild winter too. Hope we don't pay for it with bad weather this summer.

I really like the picture of the tree and the wagon; it really pops against the blue sky. The trees were beautiful for a few days, but I am glad the fog is leaving!

Beautiful pictures. The day may have been cold but it is beautiful. We've not had much of a winter this year, hardly any rain or snow. Today it is a bit dreary out, in the mid 50's and a little breezy. This time last year it was raining almost every day or snowing. And the temp was nowhere near 50. Thanks for sharing the pics. I enjoyed them.
