Pixel ended 2010 the way she ends most nights - wreaking havoc. I imagine 2011 will bring more of the same; she is, indeed, a creature of habit.

Peace. Love. Nuts.

Pixel doesn't drink coffee, but she really loves the box.

Pixel took a liking to my Christmas stocking.



It's in the bag and on the board )

I decorated the tree today.


Cake balls_0154, originally uploaded by maystone1.

Dar has come up with a wonderful new confection: cake pops! Rolled in chocolate! And they're gluten free. I know that several of you wanted her recipes for cookies, but she's just been crazy busy and hasn't had time to transcribe them. She reworks them a lot until she gets them just right, so the recipes have been evolving, too. But these? These are perfection.



Rocky is dexterous. And icicles can get pretty big. )

Drift door_0132, originally uploaded by maystone1.

It's been insane around here for the past three days. High winds from the north with wind chills of -30C/-22F, snow squalls, flash freezing. The drifts have been crazy. This one stands between the house and the mill. No one can pull into the parking lot because of the deep snow. We are all so ready for this to go away.



More drifts )

I wasn't fast enough to keep her from climbing behind the bowl drawer.


Pixel Santa_0115, originally uploaded by maystone1.

It looks like she's hugging Santa, but Pixel is actually just taking a break from gnawing on his face.

OK, sometimes snow can be pretty. It was very cold and clear overnight, and the snow crystalized on the branches.

Snow. We have reflectors up along the driveway to help keep us from driving onto the lawn.

Tire tracks_0045

Tire tracks. They don't go all the way down to the barns, so it's a bit of a slog walking down there.


Mill_0015, originally uploaded by maystone1.

Our collective had the first of four open houses at the mill today. We had a good turnout; there were tours of the mill and people were buying at the gift shop. The weather turned very cold, but almost everyone still braved it to take a tour of the grounds and visit with the alpacas.

The mill has been decorated for Christmas.



And the alpacas share in the decorations )

Cookies_0985, originally uploaded by maystone1.

Dar perfected another recipe for gluten-free cookies. They taste like heaven. Chocolate-drizzled heaven.

Pixel has her eyes on you, so you better behave.

He has prodigious claws and fang. )

Chair pattern_0945, originally uploaded by maystone1.

It seemed appropriate for today: dark gray shadow of a steel gray chair against a light gray wall.


Pix foot_0930, originally uploaded by maystone1.

I've decided that the box is the equivalent of Cleopatra's barge, at least as far as Pixel is concerned. She luxuriates in it.
