First Snow of the Season

Monday, Nov 19

It snowed during the night–just a skiff–but as I write this, I’m looking out over the snowy draw and looking forward to more of the white stuff. We put salt licks out for the deer and moose, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them jumped the pasture fence to snarf up some hay. On the other hand, the wild turkeys chased a moose off the other day, so I don’t know how brave they are. I DO know I wouldn’t get between a cow and her calf for any reason!

I judged the last of the scholarship applications this weekend, and what a hard and fascinating job it was! I am both heartened and touched to realize how many of you are out there, trying to do great things, often against staggering odds, and I surely wish I could give all of you a leg-up. If you’re a finalist, you’ll hear about it soon. If you didn’t win, I hope you’ll enter again when we start the 2008 competition. All the information will be on the website, as usual.

Sadie-beagle is downstairs, barking her agreement! More likely, she’s just lonely and wonders where everybody is. 🙂 Or she wants an elevator ride! I’d better go check.
