What do we do on snow days down on the dairy farm?
The same as we do on a summer day!
Feeding the calves and milking the cows are chores that we

I will say that snow days serve to remind us to enjoy

we are to live and work on the farm and experience
God's creation everyday.
I'm not particularly fond of cold weather but snow days
do alter the schedule to doing the absolutely necessary chores
and sometimes allow for unexpected time together with our family.
Snow days are always good days for enjoying
a little chocolate cream pie
(made with real whole milk, of course),
a cup of coffee made from this week's family find
of an antique coffee percolator,
and a few family stories about the good old days
down on the dairy farm!
