First snow and other stuff

Woke up to some snow this morning.

It's a sloppy mess outside.
Can you see on the pool cover how much it is raining?
Well believe me it was definitely raining!

I was soaked to the bone by the time I was done feeding the animals.

All the horses were wet and dirty.

What a weather change from last weekend when we had temps in the mid 60's.
I suppose winter had to come at some point and at least we have pretty short winters here in WI.

Shoot, it's almost the winter solstice - December 21st! The days will start getting longer and so really spring is just around the corner!
(this is called positive thinking folks!)

Anyhow.. Here are some pictures of Chyann and I riding last weekend.

Chyann is such a natural. Me, not so much, but I do love it.

Doesn't even look like Chyann has a hold of the reins here, does it?

Special thanks to Caden for coming out to take some pictures.

As I sit here to type this post the weather has changed from rain to sleet and now it's snowing big fluffy flakes.

Maybe I wont be going to the grocery store today. I can't stand driving out during the first snow. Seems some folks forget how to drive and are an accident waiting to happen.

Lots of stuff to do here at home anyway. The regular house cleaning and everyone is getting a hair cut too.

Still putting in the OT for work and full nights here so it's been busy.

Happy Saturday!

My chickens and the cats acted all goofy this morning with the snow.
I agree, being in Wally's parking lot would be a pain in the you know what today. I cut my bangs the other day!

I don't like being out in the first snow too. I had blankets on the line airing out that got rained and snowed on.

Caden is so cute with that cheesy grin! You look like a natural on the horse to me. At least you aren't hanging upside down underneath it. We've got snow too and today it got really cold and windy.
