Cooler than yesterday and a very muddy, grey morning.
We were in the mood for a good old fashioned lunch...
Grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup.
It never gets old.
Late afternoon the wind was kicking up and the pups were not that hot to stay outside.
Things were finally winding down upstairs.
Gary gathered up about 15 trips worth of paint, drop clothes, garbage and more
and brought it downstairs to be put away when he recovers.
I was happy to see this quilt back up on the wall.
It was produced over 15 years ago by my students. Each appliquéd a square and Connie Bonner put it all together (she also did one of the squares).
I actually had the energy to help reorganize the rooms
and really appreciated the early evening light.
We had homemade pizza and a salad for dinner.
I just remembered to photograph day two of blossom #1.
So different in the dark.

Now I appreciate those sunny mornings more than ever.
Talk about a swamp.
99% of the snow is gone.
The hibiscus plant in our dining room must have 10 buds waiting to pop,
and this one arrived today.
I finished my gazzilionth Grisham book while I was cleaning stalls this morning and spent much of the afternoon vegging. My energy level has improved and I had a half decent night of sleep again...but the cough is taking a long time to disappear. Maybe if I ignore it, that will help.
Dinner was a combination of leftovers from the past two nights.
We have had rain on and off and doing nothing seems
to be the best option for the duration.
This afternoon Gary finished painting the hallway upstairs!
Everything is done! Now we can set up all the rooms and it will look beautiful.
A major accomplishment.
4 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom and the hallway.
