Chilly Willy! Back to winter a winter hat and gloves.
Was it really near 80 a few days ago?
Jill and Chester were here for chores.
On their way out, you could see how much Belle means to Jill.
It is very fortunate that she has the option of going to visit her in her new home.
I sure hope that we can stay connected too. She has been a great help to me with the horses and we have had fun going to the market and talking food.
Besides, she'll have to come back to visit Lily and Sophie.
I think Chester has had some good times at the farm.
Anyway, with the windchill...it was very cold.....maybe below 20.
I went out and picked the pastures when everything else was done.
This afternoon Gary and I went down to get new cell phones. What an ordeal....it took forever and we still don't have them. We are on the conservative end in that department, as we only use them for making and taking calls. No music, no texting, no online connection. I know there are people out there who really need some of those things, but boy! it sure has turned this into a rude society. Too many people are addicted, and don't think they can survive unless they are constantly attached in some way. You know what I mean. And why do some people use such LOUD voices when they are talking in public places (like restaurants). What a way to have a good meal ruined. Texting!!!!!Yikes! Today we were told that some of the younger techies text up to 6000 messages a month. "Hi." "Hey." "Where are you?" "What did you have for lunch?" OMG! Empty conversations.... And of course, all children need them in case of an emergency. At the college level, they need to get warnings if they use them. What a pain in the butt. Can't anyone ever say no to some of this stuff?
I guess that's enough on that subject.
On to dinner.
Chopped up some tomatoes and green onions...washed some fresh spinach....
First I sauteed the onion, added some orzo and chicken stock...then the spinach and tomatoes.
Made a quick salad...romaine, pears, apple, onion and homemade croutons.
At 7 I went out to do chores. Had been sitting by the fire and was all cozy until I went out the door.
May go down to the teens tonight. The farmers with orchards are in a panic.
The sun was going down by the time I finished.
That moon was just staring at me when I went back to the house.
