Snowy Sunday

The birds have been jostling for position at the feeders, as the snowflakes have been falling. J & I just got back from a walkabout in the snow. The world always looks so different, with everything covered by a blanket of snow. Thanks to June's post, I made my first ever popovers this morning. They reminded me of a cross between biscuits and the baked pancakes I make. I would suggest you have everything else on your menu ready as you pop them out of the oven. I wasn't that organized, so by the time we sat down to eat, they had cooled and were beginning to toughen just a bit. They were very good, but I can imagine what they'd be like just out of the oven.

I'm glad J had the foresight to suggest stopping by to see my Mom & Frank, after we left my Dad and extended family last evening. My siblings families and I were to have met up at my Mom's today, but the slippery roads are keeping us all at home. The lights have flickered and gone out briefly once already. Other than hot running water, we're pretty well off here without power. We've had our showers, so let it snow! The picture of the shed was taken first thing this morning, when I went out to tend the chickens. It's snowed another couple of inches since then.
