What a beautiful morning! Supposedly, it was 47 degrees.
A lot of melting had occurred and the driveway was glare ice.
The weatherman said rain was on the way, the temperature was going to drop, and then snow!
So, I put hay nets under the shed roof and some loose hay in the paddock.
Didn't the wind start blowing like crazy?
Most of the paddock had a little texture to it, but there were several areas with ice. I did my best to my it safe for the ponies.
By the time I got back to the house, the temperature had already started dropping and we had a couple of bursts of rain. Lovely.
You can see how stressful it is for L'orange to be in the house.
Had lunch and called the message therapist to make an appointment. She had time today at 3:30, so I was happy to get in. This print is in her office.
Of course I had to take a few shots of the fish.
Monday night...dinner with Jenny and the boys. Home around 4:30 and got a few things ready to take down (I never bake, and actually made chocolate/peanut butter chip cookies with granola in them).
Out to do evening chores around 5:20 and the wind was still wild. I use these buckets to set up the grain, beet pulp, supplements and, if they are lucky, 1 or 2 pieces of carrot. I pick the paddock every night...it may go down to 10 and I didn't want any frozen manure hanging around. It's like being on automatic pilot.
Hurry! Hurry! Supposed to be there by 6. (Pulled in at 6:15...the story of my life when I have chore duty).
Tonight I made a salad with mixed greens, orange, clementine, banana, craisins, walnuts, 1 tablespoon of crumbly blue and Good Seasons Italian Dressing. Refreshing.
Jenny made a fabulous meatloaf...peas....
sauteed mushrooms with red wine...
mashed potatoes and gravy...corn muffins from Barb.
What a great meal.
Finn and Coop were meatballs!
Jen has turned into a great cook! What a dinner!
When we finished eating, we skyped Ariana out in Nevada for some lively conversation.
Home now, and ready for a cupa tea. Going to watch a new TV show that starts at 10.
It's called Harry's Law and stars Kathy Bates. One of the few good shows out there. Have you seen it?
