Yesterday, April 5th in Alberta…many folks are planting their gardens and starting to mow lawns…. We get half a foot of snow! It’s not cold, just hordes of snow….

Looks like it’s an inside day for the animals…. Petunia the pig will go outside in almost -30, but will not motor around her pot belly self in the snow this deep, even in my walking tracks. I have to plow the snow away for her to roam with the tractor. Spoiled brat!

Chickens came out, took a look around at this crazy April morning and declared today an inside day! Perhaps chicken-games and safety meetings all day today.

Happy Easter all!

Well, it’s definitely not every day that I get to have my morning coffee with a couple of moose (no…not miice…) hanging around in the back. This lovely lady has been there all morning, and we were trying to see what she could see in the trees…turns out there was a big bull moose hanging out on the trail. We couldn’t get a picture of him…but our cow moose was very interested.

Happy Friday all!
