The day started out alright. I forgot to post my SkyWatch shots....
Jill helped with chores.
No blankets for the girls today....going up to 50.
By noon, all this snow disappeared.
That's when my long afternoon started.
I drove into Rochester for my annual mammogram.
This beautiful fish tank was in the waiting room where 30 to 40 women were in robes, listening for their names to be called.
It was my turn....I went in once, got called back again...and yet one more time.
By then I was a basket case. I had been reading a Sharon Creech book that I brought along to keep busy, but by then could not concentrate . The fish were not helping and I was listening to conversations all around me.
3 hours later I was called and thought I was going to be sent to one of the doctors for some bad news.
Instead, they said everything was ok....just needed a clearer picture. I started to breath again and drove back home.
Went out to do chores around five, and by then the sun was almost down.
All three ponies had rolled in the mud and were disasters.
Picked the paddock, got their grain ready and tucked them in for the night.
I was not in the mood to cook so we went down to Steven's Loft for a nice dinner.
Gary started off with some cajun soup...
I had a grilled pork chop on mashed potatoes with a side of carrots. The meat was topped with a spectacular sauce with cranberries and grilled pineapple. SO GOOD! You will have to forgive me for not having the descriptions for all these dishes...should have taken home a copy of the menu. Every 10 weeks or so, it changes depending on what Steve wants to feature and what is available according to the season.
Gary had haddock french...
I also photographed some other food that was served.
and a rib eye steak.
Good reviews all the way around. Of course we knew a lot of the people who were dining and they all seemed very happy.
Steve was working his butt off in the kitchen. There are no restaurants in the area that can touch this one with a ten foot pole (what does that mean?). Ambiance and top notch cuisine.
The lights are still on in the village and add a little magic.
