 It rained last night, but it sure shaped up this morning.
 It was mild when I went out to the barn, so off with the blankets.
 In fact, we got into the 60s.
 Sara, from Punkin's Patch, asked how we made out with the freezing temperatures the night before last.  We covered up a couple of our fragile, young plants and they made it.  The daffodils took a little beating.  Some of them were flat out on the ground so I picked them.

 Dropped my car off for an inspection and oil change on the way down to chorus.
 A fine rehearsal!  We are really catching on.
 On the way home we stopped to pick up my car....BAD NEWS!  I needed new front brakes and some other expensive the tune of $666.  That sure did not make my day.

When we got back to the farm,  I tested out the camera on my cell phone and took 
some photos of the girls.

Caught a shot of  the rhubarb for Annette so she can see how far behind we are compared to what's happening in California.
 What a beautiful afternoon!!!!

 Back to get my car at 3.  I like this old depot  next to where I got it repaired....

Gary met Finn and Coop at the bus.  At 5:30 we took them up to the Golden Eagle for dinner.

 Gary challenged Finn and Coop into tasting a pepperochini and they actually tried it!

 Shucks Gomer....

 Chores when I got home.  The temperature had dropped and there was a little spitting rain.

Tucked them in....
Time for PJs and a cuppa tea.
Night all.


  1. Glad you didn't get too popped. How about the local orchards? What kind of phone did you end up getting?

  2. You are making mom crave the east coast ( and real food)
    Benny & Lily

  3. Your rhubarb will catch up to mine in no time.

  4. You seem to live in an enchanted part of the world. Lovely shots.

  5. I love your banner picture! I don't know how you keep doing it.
    Your place is so beautiful. You may be behind Annette, but we're behind you :)
    Very cute kids, and burgers and fries are front runners for my favorite meal. Looks like a great day.

  6. My rhubarb looks just like yours. The boys are a hoot : )

  7. I love your new header picture, and those smiling faces are the best too!!

    I hope you're having a good Thursday!!

    PS: Sorry about your car--I put that right up there with bank problems!!

  8. Nude celebrities, huh? A wee bit intriguing but obviously a nuisance.

    Really sweet boys in your post. I also love the photos of your horses. It's fun to see how your day has evolved. Such a beautiful setting at your farm.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and for the nice comments.

  9. That cowboy hat suits Coop to a t.

  10. Your grandsons are still adorable - I enjoyed looking through for a few moments.

    Hope all is well with you.
