DON'T BELIEVE WHAT THE THERMOMETER SAYS WHEN THERE'S STRONG WIND!
It looked nice....
but it sure didn't feel so great!
The wind was howling. I put on long underwear, a T-neck, sweatshirt, 2 pair of sweat pants, heavy socks, a thick jacket with the hood over my hat, a scarf and my Muckboots.
The strong wind was doing me in.
Can you see those snow spouts?
Fortunately, the sun made an appearance making it somewhat bearable for the ponies. The stockade fence on the outside of the old paddock fence blocked the wind pretty well....so the hay didn't blow all over the place.
They all had a sheets on top of their blankets.
I finished chores up in time to take a shower before going to chorus. We accomplished quite a bit. So behind since last Wednesday was a snow day and we got cancelled.
I'd say we have enough snow.....
The pups did not stay out too long today.
I love the different shades of blue and violet when the sky is so brilliant.
Back home for lunch. L'orange spent some time in the house.
I'm very happy with the way Gucci and Phoebe have accepted him.
We had egg salad (with green olives and a little onion) sandwiches for lunch.
Then, I started on dinner. Made some yellow split pea soup.
Carrots, celery, onion, soaked peas...to which we added half a slice of cubed ham fried with 2 more onions.
Gary finished making it while I did evening chores.
Phoebe and Gucci stuck with me the whole time.
I was done with everything in about 35 minutes.
Made a salad when I got in. Leaf lettuce, onion, 1 pear, 1 apple and craisins topped with crumbly blue.
The soup turned out great.
Had a nice multi-grain roll on the side.
Time to go out by the fire.
