Winter is cold this year, but all is well in our little homestead. I hope you feel the same about your place. I'm really pleased the readers' photos feature is so popular. If you want to be a part of it, just send me your photos and a description. Thanks for your visits this week, I'll see you again soon.

One of my favourite blog reads at the moment is Broadturn Farm, in Maine. It's written by Stacy and John who run a CSA farm selling fruit, berries, vegetables and flowers. Their photos are lovely, the writing style, and I suspect feeling on the farm, is relaxed and warm. I think you'll like it.
I'm also enjoying reading Our Aussie off grid heaven, written by Jane. She and her husband have just moved from the coast to an off grid bush home further inland. The blog shows the diverse range of skills Jane and her husband need to live on their land, and the joy they feel living there.
My sister Tricia lives in Blackheath in the Blue Mountains. She just sent these photos of the snow at her place. They have no electricity either but she's okay with a wood stove and gas stove. Stay warm, Tricia!
