oh Tess so cute! How she's minding these days ;-)

Have you ever been to count the sheep and found any missing? What happened to the neighbor who kept firing the gun? (Sorry that one just sprang into my head from somewhere). Lots of things to do and repair before the spring comes. I believe it's one of the reasons that some folks love gardening/farming and some folks hate gardening/farming...there is ALWAYS something to do!

I finally took my monthly lake picture and will have it up in a bit...I'll let you know!

Tess is beautiful!

I love to compare your terminology to our American words. Grit here would be described as ice melt. Grits here is a cereal served mostly in the southern states. I don't like it much myself. lol

Awwwww, we love the little Tess pictures!

I'd venture a guess that soon there will be some pretty little birds in your box!
