Do You Believe in the Magic of the Season?

Today was a wonderful day to appreciate the comforts of home. It was freezing cold last night and this morning but it was okay because I had nowhere to go. I bundled up this morning to do chores ( i love those pink coveralls), carried out warm water for everyone, put fresh pine shavings in the chicken coop, gathered firewood and had a fire going by 10:00 am. Cookie production started, laundry was going, snacking here & there, peeking outside to check on animals, (though everyone was staying in the barns), watched my soap opera, made chocolate candy, and then did evening chores....fresh straw for everyone at night as it will be cold, cold again tonight.

A couple of years ago my parents bought this picture for me and it always warms my heart as it is a wonderful reflection of my life in the country.....today was a day for reflection of that life.

And as the holiday season comes upon on us, so does the magic of the season.......do the sheep believe in the make of the season? Do they understand what joy they bring to those that believe in them?

Josiah told me today that he believes in the the magic of the season.........

I love the sheep/santa sign! I want a pair of those pink coveralls. It isn't that cold here most of the time, but those days that it is, it sure would be nice to be warm!

That sheep picture is one of my favorites :)
I think my sheep can sense the joy they bring me......they are content and comfortable and it shows in their behavior. How lucky we are to have that all year long :)
Enjoy your vacation - your off to a great start.

Ditto what Deb said. I don't have sheep but my goats, chickens and turkeys bring me such joy, and they are happy critters. Yes, I certainly do believe in the majic of the season.
