Snow and meat

Yesterday the snow came. We woke up and everything was white and clean and crisp, like a layer of icing. The full moon made it magical and all the kids gathered here to play and make snowlanterns and pulled the sledges and taboggans out of the garage to play. Today two lambs arrived from our neighbour who helped me cut it into the right bits on our kitchen table. The lambs were walking on the field outside our house only a couple of weeks ago. I spent the whole day salting and preparing a winters supply.
