More of the Same

Until late afternoon, it was very drab and downright cold.
I picked some daffodils before going out to do morning chores.  
Most of the year we have fresh flowers on our kitchen table.

 After the stalls were cleaned I spent a little time moving more brush

 and then we went in the house for awhile.
 I had to run an errand and took Little Wonder and Phoebe along for the ride.
Someone else had the same idea.

 We stopped at the Town Park on the way home and did a little exploring.

After we got back we went outside again.
(The garlic is growing like crazy).

I finished my book and started listening to another, which put me right to sleep.
Then, I don't know where I've left off and have to back track.  I'm better off reading.
Gary had a long workshop today and when he got home he started attacking 
the garden by the studio.
He has not had much time for that lately.
I made a simple dinner.
Salad, organic chicken and sweet potatoes....(and leftover pie).

 My turn for evening chores.  As soon as the girls saw me they came up to the front paddock.

 The sun sure improved this part of the day.

 The pond will probably be gone by tomorrow morning.  
For the next 7 days we should have temps between 60 and 72.
I'll take it.

 The sunset was gorgeous!
Night all.

More Rain...the Pond is Back

Grey most of the day and around 50.
We had plenty of rain again, so there is a lot of standing water.
 The back pasture is high and drains well, so it looks great and the grass is growing.
 I hope the pond disappears quickly.
We are putting out less hay, and today it was set up way out back.
A few days ago I called Gordon B. to have him come up and rototill the outdoor arena and Gary's gardens.  Let's hope it dries out before Tuesday.  The weekend forecast sounds pretty good.

At least the dogs were willing to go outside today...

I spent much of the afternoon reading and made a banana cream pie.
Off duty....no appointments.

 Dinner....leftover replay.
 The pie tasted great!
 Time to get back to my book.
Night all.
