When the sun came up, there was still snow on the ground.
The temperature was approaching the mid thirties by the time I went out to the barn.
Jill was there right on time.
Chester and Sidney were just getting to know each other.
By 8:30, it was time for the girls to get naked.
We finished chores in no time and I spent awhile on the driveway. I don't know why I bothered, as it warmed up quickly and the little snow we got last night was disappearing.
At 9 this morning, the fourth bird was ready to hatch.
By 11 it appeared. I'm calling this one "Aloha." There may be two more on the way.
Class started at 1:30 with the Phoebe/Gucci treat ceremony.
Time passed very quickly.
So where did all the snow go?
When I went out to do the evening chores, decided not to put blankets on the girls, as the temperature went up to 52 today and was supposed to stay near 50 all night.
In the house and managed a quick shower before Jill and Ralph arrived for our special dinner.
I made the salad.....mixed greens, onion, kiwi, blueberries, craisins, dried appricots, toasted pecans and crumbly blue.
Jill brought a cheezy/vegetable soup. Potatoes, celery, carrots, peppers and tomatoes. Outstanding!
She also made the main course. Mushroom Bourguignon!!! Believe me, it tasted even better than it looked. One of the best vegetarian dishes ever.
I made a chocolate cream pie that was lined with sliced bananas and topped with fresh whipped cream.
A great meal....with good friends.
