 A beautiful sunrise.

 Jill helped with morning chores.  The paddock was pretty rough, as the freezing temperatures created lots of bumps and frozen hoof prints. 

 A dusting of snow.

Had to go back to Weggies to pick up a few more things for dinner tonight.  These flowers were on sale for 4 bucks.
 When I got home, set the table and started chopping and mixing.
 Had to clean the house....moved the Bird of Paradise for the 4th time.
 Started off with some Gucamole...avacados, lime juice, salsa and sour cream.  Then, I chopped up all kinds of beautiful things and forgot to take pictures.  Peppers, scallions, tomatoes, lettuce, cheese etc.
 It started to snow when I went out to do evening chores.

 Tucked in the girls and went back in for a nice, hot shower.

As we watched the evening news, the weatherman said a big squall was approaching Brockport...lots of snow but only for half an hour.  Right when our company was supposed to arrive.  When we looked out at the road, the visibility was terrible....BUT, they all made it.

We had fruit.... 

Black Bean Burritos with two different kinds of rice.

And a gluten free cake with raspberries and cream.

 A very nice evening full of food and great conversation.

Night all.
