 The "Breakfast Club" was in the house eating breakfast before it was light out.

 By the time I headed out to do chores at 7:30, the moon was still high in the sky.
 And then the sun appeared....what an unbelievable morning!

 No coats for my assistants today.
 Doesn't this look more like October?

 A "bird" hatched last night....4 more to go.
After having 4 weeks off, Chorus rehearsals started today.
 We are working on these two songs and will perform them with the High School Chorus in March.
 We sang with them at their concert a couple of years ago and it was a great experience.  There will be well over a hundred voices.

Stopped at Wegmans on the way home and ran into Sally...we decided to go down to Java for lunch, where I ordered my favorite sandwich (period!!!!).  A Greek Panini.  Sally decided to try one too and loved it.  By the time we left, we had gabbed for a couple of hours.  What a relaxing way to spend the afternoon.  And believe me, we covered everything from politics to foaling to autism.  Last night I watched the movie "Horse Boy," about a 4 year old who had autism.  It was a documentary and clearly showed the connection he had with animals, particularly horses.  Very interesting... they traveled to Mongolia seeking help.
 The current art show at Java was a display of paintings by one of my colleague's (from Brockport Central School) sons.  Mr. Pop Art Himself.
 Gary spent the afternoon working on a couple of chairs out in his shop (his barn).  I can't tell you when there was a January that was warm enough to do such a thing.

Started on dinner and went out to do chores.  Still in the low 40s.

You've seen this before.  Veggie burgers, roasted potatoes and coleslaw.  Fine with me.
Night all.


  1. Looks like a great day. We are heading for a change in our weather. Tomorrow afternoon in the 20's and snow. I will believe it when I see it.

  2. What a beautiful day you had! That panini sounds wonderful.

  3. I knew when I got to the end of this post, there would be something delicious waiting. Yum! The "breakfast club" look as if they have it made. Your assistants don't look as if they have it in a bad way either. Have a great one!

  4. What a spectacular hatchling.

    It is indeed colic weather here. All seems well, but of course I worry.

  5. Sounds like a great day, Lori. Nice that we shared moon pics today. :)

  6. Kitty demanding breakfast before dawn,
    a lingering moon & birds of paradise: we live in very similar realities despite the very obvious differences!
