The way the sun was coming into the kitchen, the morning looked pretty promising.
But what about the temperature? There was a brisk wind and it was in the 30s. On went the blankets.
Sidney has turned into a home body....
After lunch the pups and I went down to Country Max to pick up some shavings.
I had a raincheck at the last sale price so I packed 8 into my car and Gary put 12 in the van. Should be set for awhile.
Invited Sally up for dinner....Jill had chore duty. I swear, it didn't get past the very low 40's today and with the wind it was a lot colder than that.
Didn't have any flowers, so my centerpiece was made of two kinds of parsley.
I had to use up some red and green sweet peppers so I made a bolognaise sauce starting with onions and leeks...adding a jar of sauce that Kelly F canned and gave to us. Very different from ours. Added some red wine, let it reduce a little and threw it on some penne. Such full body! Delish. Served it right out of the pot.
Attention Sara and Tim (Punkin's Patch): Gary and Sally indulged in Kentucky's finest sippin' whiskey. Just a little.
Razzelberry pie for dessert.
After dinner Gary told Sally about his yoga class and showed us some moves. We both tried many of them and had a few laughs. Really enjoy spending time with someone who is so interesting and such a good sport. Lucky to have connected with Sally!
She is going to be very good at this.
By the time she left, the moon was really showing off.
PS - There will be no new Kyd on the block tomorrow. Still looking for one more horse (not for me) to keep these three company.
