Winter Wonderland

Even on the Southern High Plains of New Mexico, we get some snow.  Real winter seldom lasts for more than a couple weeks here but it can become extreme at times.  With occasional swings of 60 degrees Fahrenheit up or down in a matter of a couple hours, the inconsistency makes it difficult to plan.  Unseasonable warmth has now turned to single digit temperatures at night and 6-10 inches of snow around the property.

  1. New Mexico is a beautiful state! I had family in Albuquerque, so while I was growing up we visited there every summer and I fell in love with the state. Also, visited Santa Fe many times. 🙂
    Love the pic of the snow on your wagon! Did you build it?!
    BTW: I’m a hugger.
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

    1. Thanks, and yes, I built it. That and a few other projects were the impetus for this blog initially. If you are interested, there is a button on the right side of the page; if you click the picture, you can see the building process documented. That, and other little rolling homes is one of the themes of my blog.

      1. Wow! Great job!
        I will do that! I love seeing the process of things being made! I have friends who are builders and creators and handy-people and I love seeing their work as it’s being done. 🙂 My hubby and I have a side, just-for-fun business where we make custom leather projects.

      2. That is awesome. We work leather too. You’ll run into a few regular projects on the blog. Also, I do commissions, rarely make a dime on them, and have fun with it.

      3. I look forward to all of your blogs!
        Yes, it’s nice when the main goal is the fun of the creating. Everyone should have projects to help them enjoy life and deal with the stresses of life. 🙂
