Papa makes an indoor swing for the us all.
Old Man Winter arrives...cold, blowing and painting the world white.
This Cat showed up on our door-step. Now I call him Tom.
November to March, and he is still alive...Hurray for Tommy Boy!!!
December brings us -40 Deep Freeze.....Brrrrrr!!!!!!
Grandaughters arrive to trim the tree and bake cookies for Nan and Papa
Every grandchild had a figure hanging on the tree
...these are for Achilles, Piercen and Jake
Every child is a star in our hearts...each one hangs on the tree.
Here is Skee's Star. (Auntie Vicky made the names for our stars.)
Many nights the the Northern Lights dance in our sky
It kind of makes me forgive the winters bitter cold!
Mid January, the evening before we leave this cold frozen land, to head for ..........
Papa Mark hand planted his grain....it was a bountiful & beautiful field of grain.
In September and October the farmhouse pickled and preserved. So enjoyable!
The combine ran through our neighbouring fields. Fall was soon to be upon us.
Family came and went at will....We LOVED every visit from one and all!
Dan, Vicky and Achilles
One day as everyone left...I was struck to see a pair of boot and bucket of the same colour. It was left behind. Of course I saw a photo shoot there! (smile)
We now harvested the chickens and invited a cat to join the farm...
as Joe says,it is the farm of "DEATH" for animals...
We call the cat Charlie, sadly he was hit by a car.
NANA'S PICKLED BEETS
Nothing Beats Beets
We LOVED our laying ladies...and the eggs were enjoyed by all......
So the fields and trees turned golden and Papa Mark went a hunting...got us an Elk
Papa and his hunting buddy, cut , grounded, wrapped the meat for our winters food
