Adventures from the Little Yellow House

or Life on the Not So Little Hill

Month: November, 2011

From Such Great Heights

We walked to the top of the hill beside our house yesterday afternoon, “Punkin'” and I.
It was an interesting little walk.
The fields around the house haven’t been tended in years, and the weeds growing are as tall as me (which isn’t saying much, I know) in most places.
The ground was soggy from rain the day before, as well as from the old pond we found out we had in part of our field.
It is just marsh right now, but we hope to get it dredged out and restored to pond status.
There was a lot of dill weed growing – I could smell it in the places I stepped.
It was sharp and fresh in contrast to the sweet grasses, the musky weeds and the mud.
“Punkin'” was wrapped up nicely in her sling, enjoying being outside in the cool, foggy weather.
The views from the hill were beautiful…

Our FieldOur property is from end to end, between the weeds in the foreground, and the closer treeline in the background.
Our house is to the right-hand side (though not pictured).

Lights & Reflections

Lights that Tim put up the other day when it snowed.
I love sitting in the front rooms while Chloe is nursing and just looking out the windows.
It’s calm and peaceful…

Winter for a Day

It snowed two days ago.
Since most of the windows are old double-pane glass, they get foggy when it’s cold out.

It’s gone back to being in the mid-fifties again, so all the snow is gone.
Crazy weather. The day before it snowed it was almost seventy degrees out!!
One of these days Winter will decide it’s time to stay for a bit…

First Snow

I know, I know. I’ve been slacking.
I’m putting up some pictures of the first snow this year. It wasn’t much, and didn’t stick around long, but it was wonderful to see snow again!!
