Snow time like the present

I can’t resist a pun sometimes

We’ve had some snow lately and it is ridiculously pretty around here so I went on a snowshoe tromp around the property.

I love how everything wears little snow hats after a good snowfall


There also may have been some sledding with friends because the local school has the best sledding hill and we are all really good at adulting (which was especially obvious as we walked back with our sleds under our arms, waving to the neighbors out shoveling their driveways and walks as our own sidewalk and driveway sat still covered in snow)

Pictures – FROM A DRONE!

Our neighbor stopped over the other day (the one that had extricated the truck from the mud) and asked if he could look around our property because he thought that his RC airplane had gone down somewhere in the back. I helped him look for it for a while and we both emerged plane-less and covered in burrs. Then I remembered I had a friend, or more like an Instagram acquaintance, who took awesome drone pictures of places that seemed to be in our area. I messaged him and asked if he lived close by, and if so would he mind coming over and helping us find our neighbor’s plane. He agreed, and now we have pictures… from a drone.

I really enjoy being able to see the property from the air – it gives me an idea of the lay of the land and see where different parts are.



pretty cool huh?
