58 Degrees. The Snow is gone!

 The girls were naked and the rain missed us today.  Yes!

 The "pond" in the big pasture was half the size it was yesterday, but it's going to be awhile before everything dries out.

 Gary spent much of the day cleaning up the area.
Plowing a stone driveway is a pain in the butt, so he had a lot of work to do.
 The entire yard needed raking because of all the branches that blew down during the windstorm and then got covered with a couple feet of snow.

 We cleaned the house after chores as Bobbie, Hanny and Ann were arriving at noon for 
lunch and bridge.
 Gary picked up some tulips for me on his way home from Java.
 Lunch was delicious.
 Syrian Bread, pasta with bacon and caramelized onions tossed 
with a little oil/butter and Romano Cheese.
 A green salad with my new favorite balsamic dressing
 and brownie pie for dessert.
 We jabbered for two full hours before we picked up the cards.
A very relaxing afternoon that ended about 4:30.
 I went outside when they left and raked for awhile.
By then the sun was making an appearance.

 I'm have to do some serious grooming tomorrow morning.

 Things are starting to pop in the gardens.
Could spring really be starting?
Night all.
