Home On The Range...

A chilly day.
At 7:30am Gary was outside with a roofer as we need to have work done after it was damaged by the windstorm.  Looks like he can come back in the middle of next week.
Who knows when the barns will get done.
 As you can see, most of the leaves are out now.

 We also have these beautiful blossoms and I can't ever remember what they are called.

 The grass has been growing like crazy so I mowed the lawn and outside the back pasture fence.
 The girls like this weather...no bugs today.

 The pups were in and out all day, helping me work in a couple of the gardens.
Weeds, weeds and more weeds.

 We had a simple pizza for dinner.
Sauce/onions and cheese.
This time I made it on a cookie sheet so the crust would be thinner and crispier.

 I was able to slide it right out of the pan onto a cutting board that is just the right size.
 Delicious.  We had dinner theater and started watching a new Netflix series.
 Can you believe the position Phoebe was in while she ate her dinner?

 I had chore duty tonight.

 We had about 15 minutes of sunshine before the sun went down...
 and Gary continued replanting strawberry plants.
 I'm loving these tulips.
Night all.

Another Day Full Of Sunshine

Pretty soon I just may go out and do chores earlier.
When the sun is out before 6:30 my eyes won't stay closed.

 Once again the wind was pretty strong.
 After finishing chores I decided to mow one of the small grass paddocks.
 Then I worked on the front paddock
 and started stripping one of the run ins.
 I managed to do a little yard work before going back in the house and then went to Brockport to run a couple of errands.
 Little Wonder was in one of his photogenic moods when I got back to the farm.

 This afternoon we had a nice quiet time before dinner.

Leftover spags and a salad.
At 7:30 we were in our seats waiting to watch Sankofa.
(Sankofa is an African Drumming and Dance Ensemble at SUNY Brockport).
Here is a short peak of one of the numbers I videoed at the dress rehearsal.
From beginning to end, the show was high energy, innovative and a pleasure to watch.
Of course my drumming pals were superb!
I don't know if there are any tickets left, but I would highly recommend trying to get some.
Several friends who work for the Town attended tonight (first time seeing Sankofa...which has taken place for at least 23 years) and I'm pretty sure they will be back next year!
 And to think we can see work of this caliber less than 10 minutes away from the farm!

Night all.
