Harvest Thyme Homestead has grown out of a love for the simpler times of life. 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.

Our First Snow Warning!!
So, the weatherman said a winter snow warning 'till 1:00 pm on Sunday for Northeast Ohio. When I left school on Friday I did those important stops: food stop; feedstore for grain, Petsmart for dogs & cats ($81 for them!!!!), and since I was ticked off I spent that much I went over to B & BW (again) and picked up antibacterial hand soap (on sale $3 each and they had black vanilla raspberry:); got Pearberry gel & lotion $3 each, lip balm $1 & refill for wall plug-ins $5 (black vanilla raspberry of course). I only spent $21....good job!! Please note it is very important that if one is going to be snowed in, the house should smell very good:)
Weatherman said 9-12 inches of snow for my area and this was my driveway at 9:00 am today. Sometimes I call it the "abominable driveway"....it makes or breaks what a real snow warning is. Its about a 725 ft. straight out. If I can get down and back its a mild snow warning. If its not looking good, its a bad snow warning. Today its looking bad but I am pretty sure I will be good to get out. If I get stuck I promise to post me stuck........you should have seen me last year when I beached the mini-van....always good to have a FWB who has a big Ram truck!!
Now Dixie says its bad snow when its deeper than her legs and since her Corgis legs are really short it doesn't take much:) She loves the snow regardless!

and of course this makes for snowy sheep!! This is Ira Allan enjoying the snow warning at breakfast this morning!! Since he has the thickest fleece of all my sheep, I am sure he doesn't feel a thing. Well, I'll keep you post on our first big snow but now I need to make some serious chocolate chip cookies!!
