Jeepers! It was -10 this morning. I was dressed for it and still got chapped legs.
What a gorgeous sunrise.
It's funny, the horses don't seem to show discomfort no matter what the weather is. Yes, they have on two coats, and yes I try to put their hay in the sun and yes, they are spoiled rotten.
My old thermometer said it was about -3 around 8am.
By 9:30 the sun really made a difference.
I vegged most of the afternoon and tried to take a nap but it didn't work. I woke up a little after 5 (as I went to bed too early) and could not go back to sleep.
Got things going for dinner (Monday night - Jen and the boys) and went out to do chores.
This is what it looked like just before dark. Just enough light to see the house and barns.
Used whatever I had to make a salad. Mango, banana blah blah blah.
Jen wanted pasta. I would highly recommend this sauce.... saute onions, red peppers and crumbled sweet Italian sausage....add a couple cans of diced tomatoes (or your homemade sauce), a little sugar, salt, fresh ground pepper and 3 or 4 tablespoons of Romano cheese...maybe just a little red wine. Cook down and serve over your favorite pasta. You will love it.
I would have preferred a different salad, but that's what I had available. Greens, onion, Greek olives, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, homemade croutons and some good Italian dressing would have been much better.
The boys ate very well tonight....you never know at that age.
When we finished, Cooper wanted to draw....
while Finn did his homework....
After that, all hell broke loose. They wanted to do "skin the cat" and a few other gymnastic moves.
Fortunately they survived...way too much energy!
They left before 8, Gary has the dishes done, I'm going to wrap this up....
...and here is a special video for Sally (Sidney and Seymour's biggest fan).
Night all. Tomorrow it just might hit 34 degrees. (Kate is sending the weather to me from Chicago!)
