An icy morning....single digits.
The good news was the sunshine.
The girls were loving it.
Zap! It was brilliant out there.
The Sunday Stills challenge was "corners" today. Here is one I did not post. Gary has a real chair collection going in his barn.
My bird is doing well and it would be nice if the four others would hatch. I want to see them all at once.
There is something about that morning light that comes into the kitchen.
At 10:30 we arrived at Apple Creek Farm for a nice leisurely brunch.
Louise always outdoes herself.
Today we had scrambled eggs, Polish sausage (with horseradish), carrot salad, homemade coffee cake, grits and bagels with fresh raspberry jam.
After we finished eating we went in by the fire and gabbed for a couple of hours.
The temperature went up almost 10 degrees while we were there.
Home before 3.
Somehow it is much easier to tolerate the cold when the sun is out.
Even the horses like it.
Gary went down to Brockport for a walk with Randy and I started watching the MAD MEN series. Brenda and Al loaned it to us...it's going to take many hours but NO commercials. Love it.
Out to do chores after five.
Gary helped with water buckets and paddock picking, so I was done in a flash.
Dinner was different tonight. When he went to Wegmans to get the Sunday Buffalo News I asked him to pick up a $6 Meal of his choice (Kim at Golden Pines knows what I'm talkin' about) and I made some turnips and a salad.
Normally Gary only likes Italian dressing, but tonight I made one that you may want to try. It was a spin off of Russian....mayo, sour cream, ketchup and salsa. So good for a change.
We split chicken French and a bunch of veggies. Pretty good!
PS - I can't comment on certain blogs: Benny and Lily, The Smushies and a couple of others. Very frustrating. Just when I think I can write something, it disappears. Sorry, it's not that I don't want to.
