I did not expect it to be so windy this morning.
Just a dusting of snow.
It was mild enough for me to clean the water trough, which Gary and Karen filled using buckets. Ended up plugging in the heater, as the temperature stayed in the high 20s...I was hoping for at least 32.
Put a little time in cleaning the house and watched another episode of "House of Cards."
Tonight Jenny, Scott, Finn and Coop came over for dinner.
We had a couple of appetizers...
then I went out to do chores before we ate.
It started snowing again but the wind had disappeared.
bananas and oranges
and stir fried chicken with onions, peppers, carrots, snow peas and cashews. Topped it with a sweet and sour sauce.
Cooper started playing chess at his school, so Jenny went down to the Lift Bridge Book Shop and bought him a set. One of the bishops was missing, so Scott used an old broom stick and a lathe to produce another piece. Pretty cool.
A couple of matches took place while they were here. I have to admit that I have totally forgotten how to play the game.
Today I defrosted some of our raspberries and blueberries so I could put them on shortcake.
A reminder of warmer days.
