What A Difference A Day Makes

No blankets.  No sun.  No snow.

 After chores Karen rode Angel and I picked the brussel sprouts.  As you can see, this was a good rolling day for Maggie....who kept an eye on her mom.

 A replay on the turkey reuben paninis for lunch, as Gary missed out yesterday.
 Very lazy again.  Fire.  French film.
 Gary took a nap and I went out to do chores.

 Took a few shots in the dark on my way back to the house.

Not making dinner. 
Night all.

Yesterday's colorful sunrise and today's.  What will it look like tomorrow?

Chores as usual, but it seems to be taking me longer these days.  Threw hay down from the loft and added new shavings to the stalls....maybe that's why.  Still cold this morning, but a warm up is on the way.  44 degrees now and it's almost 9pm.
 The front paddock will be a mess by morning.

 Never got out of my barn clothes today...didn't leave the property either.  Spent a lot of time on Center business.  Gary, Al and Randy went to Rochester to watch a football game (play offs - Jamestown High School).  I just built a fire and got together some sauerkraut before going out to do evening chores.

 Made me a turkey reuben panini for dinner with a side of pickled beets.
Pumpernickel bread, homemade sauerkraut, swiss cheese and Russian dressing.
May have to do that again.
Tomorrow I need to get the lead out.
Night all.

Tuscany Stack

 There was quite a glow in the sunrise this morning.

 By the time I got out to the barn there were humungus snowflakes falling.

 That was my cue to start shoveling our long driveway.  Fortunately it was very light.

 Had History Club at 2pm and by the time I left the sun was starting to go down.
 Got back to the farm for a few minutes and had to go out and do chores.
 Scott and Jenny invited us to go over to The Village Inn in Caledonia for dinner.
 What a treat.
 We had not been there in years.  Just love the atmosphere and the service was outstanding.
The menu was simple and different....you could see that the chef was very creative.

I had a Tuscany Stack (chicken, portabella mushroom, spinach, mozarella cheese and a roasted red pepper sauce) with risotto and a side of perfectly prepared veggies.  Forgot to take a photo of the delicious salads and warm bread.
 Gary had a cup of chowder and broiled fish with french fries and coleslaw.
 Jenny had chicken french with rice and a side of veggies.
 Scott had a cup of chowder and lightly battered fish with mashed potatoes and coleslaw.
Every single meal was fantastic and we would all go back again.
Thank you Scott!

We are supposed to start warming up tomorrow...headed toward 60 in a couple of days.
What is going to happen when all that snow melts in the Buffalo area?
Night all.
