It's About That Wind....

Phoebe and Little Wonder went out to the barn with me this morning
and neither of them lasted very long.   It had to be 0 or lower with the wind.

 I put hay in the paddock and the indoor.

 I managed to get them all to come in so they would know the hay was there.

 I made myself go to Agape late morning
and then met Judy at Java for a salad.
I went home, grabbed a shower and drove back down to the village for a haircut.
When I got back to the farm, the pups went out and I got organized for dinner.

 Check out day two with the hibiscus blossom.
Could it be more beautiful?

On days like this, the fire makes winter so much nicer.
 Corn bread, apples, cheddar cheese, deviled eggs and corn chowder.

Finished my book last night and have to find another.
Night all.

Lazy Day...

I woke up to another blossom.
 These photos were taken at first light.

 I let the dogs out, fed them, fed the cats and headed out to the barn.
 The sunrise was beautiful but it disappeared within minutes.
 Little Wonder and
 Phoebe joined me, but she did not last very long.

 The wind was nasty.

 My assistant waited patiently while I finished cleaning the stalls
 and then we headed back to the house.

 Now the light was better and I took more photos.
 This variety of hibiscus is like no other I have ever had.  The colors are just stunning.

 I messed around too long and did not get down to Agape at my usual time....
thinking that I would go down this afternoon with Gary.
That never happened.  With me, it's morning or nothing.
Now I have to go tomorrow in order to get in my three days this week. 
Today I really vegged by the fire.

Managed to make corn chowder.

Gary had a dinner meeting and tasted a cup before he left.
I had a bowl for dinner
 with a side salad.  Flavorific!

The fire is calling me.
 Night all.
