We are enjoying lovely, cozy winter days around the homestead.
But, I haven’t always felt this way about winter days. A long time ago (seventeen years) I lived in a state where the month of March meant springtime, you know daffodils started blooming, and birds started singing. I had to learn the hard way, that when you live in Idaho, you HAVE to enjoy winter because spring is still a long way off. We can get dustings of snow in April.
I see so many people already in their gardens online, and I tell myself, ‘Have patience. Spring will come!” So, a cozy day it is. Soup making, garden planning, sledding, snowshoeing, hot drinks, cozy fires, and reading.
We are a little rusty with this video thing, but we are getting back at it. Just a little collage of a video, in which I introduce my daughter Jo, and you get a glimpse of a cozy day on our new homestead.
The electricity was out for a few hours that day, hence the breadsticks on the barbecue!
I love making squash soup with my heirloom squash. This recipe makes the easiest creamy and delicious soup, and my family loves it. I can’t believe how well heirloom squash store in just a cold room. Perfect root cellar food.
We plan on continuing to film and keeping y’all updated through monthly YouTube’s.
