 The way the morning started out....I thought we were going to have a beautiful day.
 Two new blossoms on the way.
 When Jill and Chester got here, it was grey out there.

 We were finished by 8:20.
 Finn did not feel well this morning, so Jen dropped him off on her way to work.
He rested for hours.

 By late morning we had some lake effect snow.
 Gary went across the street to get some eggs and by the time he got back there was a whiteout.
 At 1:30 I left for my first Tai Chi class.  I decided to take it so I could learn the basics.  6 weeks on Fridays.  I will continue to go on Mondays and will only participate in the Qi Gong part.  Once I have a good foundation, it should be easier.  I would recommend it to everyone.

On the way home the sky was brilliant.  Darklightdarklightdarklight.

 This is what I see when I drive toward the farm.

 Ta Daaaaaa.  Home a little before 4.
 All the snow that covered the ground earlier was gone.
 These daffodils are tough little plants to go through so many changes.
 Started on dinner.  Par boiled a little package of organic wings and made a sweet and sour sauce.
 In a pie plate, I put onion, a green pepper and 1 carrot.
Poured on the sauce and popped it in the oven at 350.  (Covered with another pie plate).
 Went out to do chores and it was the nicest part of the day.

 Berlin was looking at a herd of deer beyond the first hedge row.

 Tucked them in and was back in the house for dinner a little after 6.
 Salad, brown rice....
 and wings.
 The sauce was so good.
Night all.


  1. mmm that dinner looks awesome !

  2. I always marvel at the way the sky changes through your days.When daffy leaves show through, spring must be near.we end our daylight saving on April 1st, each year it is a bit longer.Great dinners as well as landscape scenes. Cheers from Jean

  5. Man you have a lot of mud! Ugh. Dinner looks good -- I bet the sauce was great mixed into the rice.

  6. Mmmmm, yum. Hope Finn is feeling better. (That reminds me: the upcoming book, due out in Sept, is the one that has char. named Finn in it.)

  7. So many beautiful photos on your blog. I love country life.

  8. mmm... yummy dinner! Such a beautiful farm. Beautiful views. The horse in your header looks so intelligent and lovely.

  9. The weather is quite variable I see. The Qi Gong classes will definitely add calmness to your life, so glad you like them. Have a great w/e Lori!
