Surprise, surprise. After all these weeks of mild weather I woke up to a
hard frost and 28 degrees.
It was hard enough to look like snow.
Notice Abbe. She is so stained I don't think she will ever look clean again.
(Maybe when their blankets go on....).
I do believe some colder temps are going to become the norm.
We've had a fire going since late morning and it has inspired lots of reading and rest.
My car has not left the driveway for days.
After making a second batch of ham salad from the Christmas Eve leftovers, I decided to throw the rest in a pot with some onions, carrots (there are still some out in the garden),
green cabbage and potatoes. A classic New England dinner. Added some cider vinegar and a little brown sugar to get that flavor we like so much.
The girls were tucked in by 5. Maggie is still gimpy.
The house felt very cozy when I got back in....
Took a quick shower
and fed the dogs. As they are spoiled, at night they get a little of whatever we are eating
or peas, or rice if what we are having does not work (about 2 tablespoons).
They had 1/3 of a cup of kibble topped with potato, carrots, a little cheese and some ham.
I wonder if Lily and Edward get meals like this.
We had toasted French bread, extra sharp cheddar cheese, apple slices
and the boiled dinner. Delish!!!!
