To spread some Christmas cheer on this merry Christmas Eve, I wanted to share these frosty photos with you! I think one of two things will happen:

1. You’ll be super glad you’re in your cozy house, waiting for a big meal-gifts-catching up with family-church service-sitting quietly by the tree-setting out cookies for Santa.

2. You’ll be super glad you’re in your cozy house, waiting for a big meal-gift opening time-catching up with family-church service-sitting quietly by the tree-setting out cookies for Santa.

Okay, so that’s just one reason. But, I’m pretty sure I’m right this time! DSCN8207Obviously, I was starting to get a little cabin fever the other day. Why else would I venture outdoors, in my snow boots & pjs to take pictures? The fresh, frozen air was calling to me.

DSCN8206So, I tromped around in the snow taking photos. Without gloves. I can’t adjust the zoom with gloves. Painful. DSCN8198I lasted about 5.5 minutes. It was fun. Right up until my my fingers began turning pinkish-red.

Dear Snow – You are pretty, but please melt soon. Your friend, SierraDSCN8171

Dear Ice sickles – You’re pretty but please melt soon. Your friend, SierraDSCN8193

Dear Trees – You can stay like this. I think it is super amazing. Your friend, SierraDSCN8195  Folks, this ain’t ice. It is ice crystals. DSCN8161

Tiny works of art! This only happens when it is REAALLLY cold & the humidity is a bit higher than normal.DSCN8191

Which reminds me, my fingers are freezing off. I need to take cattle photo. Would this be a farm winter wonderland without some cows? DSCN8168 DSCN8165

That is all I’ve got. I needed to go in and warm my fingers/toes/nose. DSCN8203

Merry Christmas (stay warm),

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I love to blog, plan, organize, decorate, teach, research & be creative. I’m a farm wife & mama of three kiddos: almost 6, 4 and almost 2. We love to live and work in rural South Dakota. A few years ago we remodeled a house & we call our home The Peacock Ranch.

I am earning a Spiritual Direction Certificate from Sioux Falls Seminary & I put my masters in English/Mass Communications on hold at South Dakota State University so I can focus on being a mama in a pandemic! In the meantime, I’m enjoying reading more & writing here on the blog.
