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.

Lambs First Lake Effect Snow
Yesterday and the rest of the weekend Northeastern Ohio will be "blessed" with Lake Effect snow and since I live in a secondary snowbelt, I will be "blessed" with above average snow. As long as I can get out of my driveway I don't totally flip out about it but when the 800 ft driveway that has drifting issues gets questionable, then I have a lot of choice words for Lake Effect snow:)
The lambs from this past spring seemed to be enjoying their first Lake Effect snow.
Miss. Averill was enjoying her silly little self in the snow and being proud of it.
To prove that little lambs could handle the snow just like the big sheep, they marched their little selves up to the garden barn where they know the grain is stored.
Why is it that my lambs can march in a straight line and my 8th graders can not walk down the hall in a straight line if their life depended on it?
Fletcher also was enjoying the snow lips he could make:)
And Spirit and Abby, the mature and more experienced Lake Effect snow sheep were just enjoying the view from the new shelter.
And obviously Monique finds no humor in me taking a picture of her in the snow. She just prefers to bite my bite when I don't feed grain fast enough in the morning.
So while the snow flies outside I will attempt to grade some papers and look through some of the seed catalogs that I have gotten this past week.......I esp. love the Baker Creek Heirloom one;)
Definitely a good day to stay inside and think about this and that and enjoy all the firewood I chopped last week when I was pretending to be Mrs. Grizzly Adams.
