Small Pleasures


Yesterday we had blowing snow and sleet all day. The wind was so vicious that foot-deep drifts flowed over the driveway.

When the weather is discouraging it’s always satisfying at the end of the day to bring in the cattle and see them shake off the ice and settle, happy and sighing, into the clean dry bedding hay.


Even the boys who occasionally annoy or even alarm me seem endearing in the sweet peace of the evening barn when the wind is howling outside.
