It was cold enough for the furnace to go on automatically this morning.
However, the sun came out....we turned it off and the entire day was gorgeous.
After chores, Karen picked up a load of delicious second cutting grass and unloaded it
while I mowed three of the paddocks.
No problem with grass this year.
At 11:30 I had an appointment with the Massage Therapist. My last one was two weeks ago as I was hurting. Fortunately it really helped me and today was to get a jump start to keep me that way.
Hot stones...of course.
This afternoon I went out to our garden and picked a few cherry tomatoes,
peppers, zucchini and a couple of green tomatoes (yum, fried green tomatoes).
While I was out there I started pulling out our tomato plants as they have been hit with a blight.
I was really in the mood to start making sauce so we put the pups in the car and went for a ride.
We stopped at 2 Farm Markets and neither had plum/roma tomatoes. The nights have been too cold (in the 40s) and it's going to take a little longer for them to turn red.
When we got back to the farm I went out the Studio to finish my chair.
(Last night I did not have the energy).
I don't think I can do anything else and have given up.
Tomorrow Gary will coat it with min wax poly.
I had chore duty tonight.
The girls are always happy to go in. I open the gate and they walk to their stalls voluntarily.
As per usual, Little Wonder ended up with shavings on his coat.
Not in the mood to make a big dinner, so I thawed out Carina's pizza dough earlier today.
I used whatever we had handy.
First I brushed the dough lightly with olive oil,
then I added sliced tomatoes.
While I was in the barn, Gary sauteed an onion....
so I added that and roasted red peppers.
Picked a few basil leaves, sprinkled on a little Romano cheese
and finished it off with mozzarella.
