It rained last night and the paddock was muddy muddy. Grey, cold and ugly out there.
I am so lucky to have that shed roof! The hay is dry and the horses have protection.
I also put a hay net in the other run in, in case any of them get kicked out.
After I washed off my boots at the hydrant, I took a few photos of the last signs of fall. Tomorrow is the first day of December!
All these beautiful green things are going to be frozen in the near future.
By now, the Snow on the Mountain (below) is usually gone!
Inside, my Christmas Cactus continues to put out beautiful blossoms.
My little palm tree continues to grow....
Does anyone know where these dry "balls" come from?
The girls lounged around, but there was no beautiful sunshine coming through the windows today.
What are you doing today Dr. Porter?
After lunch I decided to do a little shopping for myself.
When I got in the car, the sky was starting to look a lot more like winter.
As I drove east on the expressway, the sun came out for a little while.
There were all kinds of sales going on at Rowe Photo, so I went in to check out the cameras.
I looked at a Nikon...
...and a Canon (this is the one I went in to see). There was quite a range in prices, depending on where I looked. On line they were $450, at Walmart $399 and at this store (probably the best photo shop in our area) it was $369. This price will hold for most of December. I liked the rechargeable battery in the Nikon, but the Canon seemed better made...it also is very highly rated. So I did it. Do any of you have this camera and do you have any hot tips?
I have to give this place a plug. The gentleman who waited on me was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. There are three locations in our area...this one happened to be in Greece, NY.
Home, chores, dinner....fire, pjs, couch time.....
