Its roots begin in a belief in one's self and that in time, the harvest of one's hard work will create a place called home.....with a few sheep, goats, chickens, cats, dogs, 2 miniature horses, & 3 alpacas added in for good company & fiber.

I Have Declared an Official Snow Ban!
As of today, January 28th, 2009, I am official done with winter.
No if's, and's, or but's about it.......I am done.
I know there is still February and March to go so there may be some days in which I "complain" but after close to 600 (and probably more) schools called off today due to the Pan Handle Hook dumping a foot of snow, most of which was hitting at rush hour, and the large public school district that I work for in the city of Cleveland did not have the common sense, again, to call the day off, I refused to go in to school knowing darn well that it would be at least a one and 45 minute drive. Our district was "so smart" that we made CNN news who wanted to know what kind of "safe" district it was. They did have a brain fart and decided to close schools early.......the kicker is that it was on the noon news and I called my school and spoke to one of my colleagues and he thought I was joking because the district had not notified them yet.
See, I am already complaining.
The mounds of snow around the barns appear to be getting taller....notice the silly goats venturing out on the paths:)
I find it strange that the snow drift this morning outside of my front door reaches the bottom of the flag......perhaps a tad too much snow?
The girls ventured out in the snow this afternoon too.
Seriously, if I did not shovel paths for the goats, they would never leave the barn.....goofs!!
I had to shovel all the snow in the ram lambs and bucks barn because the drifts were so high, silly LaMancha buck in the doorway is a pansy and doesn't want to come out in the snow:)
And of course, Miss Dixie is just loving the snow regardless:)
I, however, am an official "Snow Ban" as of today!!!
