Going In The Right Direction!

 This was a beautiful day.  Strong sunshine and a high of 24.

At noon we went down to the Rec Center to watch Finn's basketball game.  He played well and made several baskets, but they lost by 5 or 6 points.  
 Tomorrow Cooper is participating in a wrestling tournament.  That should keep him busy.
 I was up half the night thinking about how we can get rid of all the junk that has accumulated in the house and in Gary's barn...could not turn my brain off.  So when we got back to the farm I was ready for a nap.

Chores at 5:45.
 I can't believe how close we are to daylight saving time.
 I'm sure the girls enjoyed sun bathing today.

 The sky was still gorgeous when I headed back to the house.

 Late this morning I used the stock created yesterday (cauliflower etc.) to make a big pot of minestrone soup.
 Served it with extra sharp cheddar cheese, apples and homemade wheat bread.
Easy and delish.
Time to get back out by the fire.
Night all.
It is now 8 degrees and we are supposed to get up to 30 tomorrow.


  1. Beautiful pics. It was a high of 68 here today and we are freezin

  2. Sounds like the same weather we had yesterday too. Unfortunately, it started snowing here around 10 and will continue into tomorrow morning. temps are upper 20's though so not too bad. I love that it's starting to stay lighter for longer periods each day. Doesn't make it seem so bad.

  3. Our temps are warming up for a bit and that is welcome news.

  4. Fingers crossed Wednesday getting up to 40 here. I hope March begins the downhill slide. DST, sun, temps moving up.
