The sunshine and bare ground, that is. Monday was the last day the chickens and guinea hens will get to enjoy it for the rest of this week.
Snow was once again covering the ground by the time they came out Tuesday morning, and plunging temperatures will guarantee it will be sticking around for a while!
Some of us are happy that will probably mean a white Christmas, but I imagine the birds could do without. 🙂
Are you dreaming of a White Christmas?
We are joining our friends at Comedy Plus for the Wordless Wednesday blog hop. Please visit them and other blogs through the links below.

I think our snow is going to stick around for Christmas, even though it’s been a bit warmer. Your Mom can live vicariously through us. 🙂

That sunshine sure looked very inviting.
It was, thought it still was pretty chilly out there. I was quick at getting the photos taken! 🙂
JoAnn Stancer says
We love the variety we have now!

I have never had a white Christmas but imagine it would be quite exciting and very beautiful. Our Christmas forecast is cloudy, warm and breezy with a low of 64F and a high of 72F. #TexasWinter
It is beautiful! But I wouldn’t mind trying your version some day, at least once! 🙂
The Island Cats says
We have sunshine today too…and no snow. And from what the weather peeps say, we probably will not have a white Christmas. Sheesh. That’s the only day we like having snow.
I know, just one day, right? We are expecting a warm-up starting today, so it’s questionable whether we’ll still have white when Christmas gets here!
I had to re-read your first sentence to make sure the birds weren’t enjoying their last day (no… just the last sunny day!) MOL. Hopefully you won’t be too snowed in. It’s beautiful, but a lot of work to keep everyone warm and safe.
Chicken dinner for Christmas? LOL!
The worst part has been how cold it’s been the last couple of days, but now it’s going to warm up. So we’ll see whether we make it to a white Christmas or not!
Ellen Pilch says
We had enough snow already so a white Christmas I can do without 🙂
I understand that! 🙂
I am glad that the birds got a nice sunny day before the latest storm. They sure look happy!
They were, but it sure did not last! We went from snowing all day, and then plunging temperatures! Now we’re headed back for a warm-up again. They’ll be happy!
Brian Frum says
Awww, I’m glad you all are enjoying the non-snowy days!
We’re due for quite a few in a row now, so the birds will finally be happy again!
Your weather sounds like what we had a couple of weeks ago. Now, sunny skies. I love having so much variety!! Of course, it’s easier to welcome the snow when we know it will melt within a couple of weeks. I’m sure the hens will be pretty tired of being inside. Poor things!
P.S. your organic dog treats we gave as presents last year were such a big hit that we bought more this year. Family members who received them for their pups were really stoked because they were organic and their dogs loved them. 💕 The treats are under strict guard to be sure our dogs don’t help themselves before Christmas!
I suppose we should embrace the changes – we never know what to expect next! The birds have had three days of being stuck mostly inside now, and they are more than ready for our next warm-up (coming later today hopefully).
Thank you so much for telling us about the dog treats, and for your order! That made us very happy. ♥
I received your Christmas card today. Thank you!
You are very welcome!

I’m with the chickens. I hate driving in the snow – too many hills around my neck of the woods. If only the snow would just stay on the grass and off the streets and sidewalks!!
I am totally with you on that! We live at the top of a pretty big hill, and I hate if I have to venture out in the snow (luckily I mostly don’t).
The snow is beautiful, but is sure causes extra work. I”ll pass on the snow. I’m with the chickens.
Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Lovies to Luke. ♥
It does create a lot of work. So far Mother Nature has been melting it herself though, so we’ll see what happens next. 🙂
Ducky's Mom says
I’d LOVE a white Christmas, but the chances of it happening here are about nil to zilch. Just so long as the “wintry mix” stays away, I’ll be happy.
There’s nothing good about that wintry mix stuff!! 🙂
we are with the birds… let the sun shine while we enjoy some warm weather for christmas LOL
I think Luke and I are on board with that too! We’ve been stuck inside for two days now because it’s been so darn cold! Warm-up is coming today though, thank goodness. I no longer care if the snow melts before Christmas! 🙂
Molly the AireGirl says
We would love to have a white Christmas but we need to get rid of this not-fun ice first!
There is absolutely nothing good about ice!! Hope yours melts soon!
We are happy to still have our snow and cold, but on the weekend it will be almost 40, and that makes us all sad. Hopefully that will quickly stop and we can get more snow and cold. Not only do we not want snow to melt, it just makes a mess outside and it will result in more ice.
We’re getting that warmer weather starting today too, but it’s been SO cold I’m glad it will finally warm up. I know your crew would head out in it, but Luke and I just can’t take the sub-zero wind chills!!
We could do without snow too! The chickens carry themselves with such pride!
They are so much fun to watch!
