What Season is It?

20 Dec

I am really having a hard time believing we’re so far into December.  I haven’t even thought of Christmas (probably because we don’t have little kids in the family for Santa to visit), and our weather is much more reminiscent of September or October.  That means I am totally cheating on this week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday list.  The items are: mittens, home, tis the season, memory and sparkle/festive.

I have only needed mittens a couple of times this year, and I lost my gloves for those days.  Luckily I found them today, now that I don’t need them for the foreseeable forecast.  That means, I’m sharing Snickers.  He really does have one mitten and half of another.  They’re just tucked in, and you can’t see them.



This is the back side of my new garage.  You can see the open door into the boys’ home.  They really do like it.  I am still waiting for the weather to cooperate so we can finishing sculpting that steep hill and make it more gradual, so it doesn’t all wash away.

Tis the season for big family meals.  Someone says, “Don’t even think goose.  Go get a turkey.”


I have so many great memories out in the Back Forty.  I enjoy every day I get to go make more memories out there with the goats and Llenny.



It doesn’t look like winter out there.  The grass is green, and the water is still running.  It was sparkling in the bright sunshine today.

While it was not seasonable, it was quite enjoyable.  I do hope everyone has a great week, whether you are celebrating or not.

      We have had a very warm wet fall with El Nino. I’m ready for some cold weather to get rid of the mud.

    hehehe, I love your title, I have been thinking the same thing. We decorated the outside of the house in tee shirts, and I don’t think I have worn my winter coat once, yes it is that warm here at the jersey shore. 65 is predicted for Christmas Day. A great set of images, snickers is a real beauty!!

      Thanks. We’ve had a couple cold days sprinkled in with the warm and wet. Basically, it’s been miserable. Hope you have a beautiful warm Christmas.

    Yes, it’s just been goofy weather all over the country! However the rain we’re getting is not so unusual – the drought WAS unusual! We don’t always get as much as we’re getting this month,but we aren’t complaining!

    Your pictures for today are great! (As always!) The one of Llenny is very nice! I hadn’t realized that you had that hill behind the new garage that needed”help”… I hope that won’t be too much of a problem.

      The weather is the delay. I have dirt, and my nephew has a backhoe. We just need the weather to cooperate.

    I really like that photo of Snickers! He looks great surrounded by red. I bet Llenny and the goats are pretty happy about the green grass and running water!

    • Teresa December 21, 2015 at 5:46 pm #

      They do like the green grass. They aren’t so happy about all the mud.

    Hello, I am enjoying the milder weather so far. I love your images of Snickers and the goats. Your new garage looks great. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

      Thanks. I admit I really enjoyed the weather when I was walking in pasture, but I worry about the bigger implications with the farm and even global warming.

    We also have warm temperatures for the season. Far away from a white Christmas !

    • Teresa December 21, 2015 at 5:49 pm #

      Well, I hope it is a wonderful holiday, even without snow.
