Steam



Here's a little better picture of the frost on our black fences steaming as the sun hits.



Horses (and sheep) steam as well (As always, click to biggify). That's how well insulated these animals are, that frost will settle on their backs and not melt until the sun comes out.



Handy, from the front porch. How lucky I am to be able to walk out the door to this each morning.

Handy enjoyed taking Michelle and Brian for a drive yesterday. Michelle was just as wonderful as I knew she would be and Brian is a natural carriage driver, wood worker, wool carder, yarn spinner and can tell some good stories (with a twinkle in his eye and great smile that will be breaking some hearts in a few years ;-) to boot.

A most enjoyable day life!

Awww, I thought you would post some photos of their visit! I'm supposed to meet Michelle at the Horse Park on Sunday. Want to come?
