What's Goin' On?

Below freezing this morning.
Phoebe did not even bother going to the barn with me.
 We got about 2 or 3 inches of snow last night and are headed toward the teens.

 Little Wonder is always chewing on something when we are in the barn.
Hay, sticks....you name it.
 Why do horses look for grass under the snow when they have piles of hay in the paddock?

 Phoebe knows just where to be.  After all, she had a lot of hair cut off on Friday
 and the fire felt a lot better than the cold air.





 Sunday Jam day.  There were about 10 of us and we played for almost 3 hours.
 We spent the first hour working on our playlist, then switched over to whatever each person selected.  Several new songs.

 About half an hour before we were finished,  my stand got knocked over and my book fell on the floor making a mess of all the music!  Just yesterday, I spent a LONG time putting all the sheets in sleeves and in the order of our playlists!  I had to look through everything to find what we were playing.  I must have over a hundred songs in that pile.
Back to the farm around 4:15 and the sun was making everything look gorgeous.






 Chore duty tonight.




 I forgot to take pictures of dinner!
Grilled cheese and tomato soup.  Gary was in charge.
Night all.

  2. I like Phoebes idea, laying in front of the fire is the best place to be on a cold morning. Putting all the music together must have been a big job but at least it's all organized now. Ginger does the same thing in the barn, always chewing something. She even helps clean up the grain the horses drop in the aisle.

  4. Our two ukulele clubs are using Box.com (an app) to store our music on our IPads. The paper notebooks are just getting too filled up and difficult to keep under control. You might look into it to see if it would work for you and your group. It allows you to download the music within wifi range and then use it in places where there is no service.

    1. Thank you so much for this info. Just yesterday one of our members was talking about doing this. I forwarded the info to our entire group.

  5. Horses dig under the snow because that is in their instincts. In the wild or in large pastures in the winter they will seek out those tasty tidbits of green grass or even dry grass under the snow. :)
    We've enjoyed some cold days which froze things up again. Today is supposed to be 35 and then back to the deep freeze. Up and down!
