I read blogs from all over the place and am amazed at how many locations have experienced this crazy weather. Today, it was pretty ugly here. Darkish from the get go.
For the first time, Jill brought Chester to the barn during chores. What a sweet boy. Phoebe and Gucci (who give some lip to new dogs on the property) were very accepting of his presence. After the horses were let out, we closed the front doors to the barn and he was able to check out every corner.
If you don't know about Chester, he was adopted about a month ago from Lollipop Farm. The Vet thinks he is about 11 years old. It's very noble of Jill to take on a dog of this age. He is full of spirit and they make a great team.
When we finished the stalls, went over to pick the indoor.
Abbe was curious about what we were doing.
I turned on the lights (even the twinkies up on the ceiling) and we let Chester, Gucci, Phoebe and Sidney have the run of the joint.
Gary got home just when they were leaving....he liked Chester a lot.
Now really....does this look like the third week in January?
Picked up around the house....built a nice fire in the kitchen...and then it was time for class.
Tina is really making progress with her drawing....it was time to work on Hickory today.
Mary is getting a feel for working with colored pencils.
And look at Judy's wabbit!
I was looking at another blog that had flowers posted and thought that was a good idea.
It's time for an upper....
Out to do chores around 5:15. "Goodnight ladies."
At the last minute (like about 4:30) I decided to make some cabbage soup for dinner. When it was done, I threw in the leftover lomain from last night! Perfect! Tasted great.
Phoebe and Lily have the right idea....After a nice hot shower I intend to join them.
