It was sort of dark all day, but the temperature went up to 40 (while my friends at Oak Creek Ranch in California have many inches of snow and experienced some single digit temperatures). Frozen pipes are no fun!
Got these flowers at least two weeks ago at Wegmans for 4 bucks, and they are still hanging in there. It keeps a bright spot in our kitchen.
I did go grocery shopping today but took it easy this afternoon. Gary had Finn and Coop duty and I sat by the fire and watched a movie. Since we got streaming, I have been taking advantage of too many films.
I made a pot of soup for dinner.
It was so dark by 4:30 I thought it was chore time. Went out and picked the paddock while I could still see and tucked the girls in. Maggie's knee seems to be doing much better.
I checked Berlin for hives under her blanket today....nothing. Good news.
and Phoebe kept me company tonight.
A Saint Tim Salad for dinner. Mixed greens, onion, mango, craisins, almonds and goat cheese.
The soup....I sauteed onion, carrots, celery and cabbage...added a little chicken stock and a bag of our tomato sauce....let it simmer for awhile, then added barley. Salt, pepper, a shot of vinegar and a shot of brown sugar...like that with the cabbage. Also had some nice bread with it.
Winter is going to return tomorrow.
