The world is going crazy all around me with Christmas preparations but I am strangely calm and content. I'm wandering around the farm doing chores at my leisure, enjoying my animals and taking pictures. Matt wanted to go to Christmas in Cooperstown but I asked if we could stay home on the farm - my favorite place in the whole wide world. My own little world, in fact. There is a gentle snow falling and the gray sky tells me it will continue. There is so much I could/should be doing but it can wait. Any day when I can stay home on the farm is a beautiful thing. The goats are the only ones who ventured out today, and it took a little coaxing. Then I threw down corn for the chickens and the goats decided it might be a good day to go outside after all.
