What a blah morning. Relatively mild and a dull grey. The first thing I did when I got outside... was to get some fresh water going into the water trough. The hose had defrosted and it was a perfect opportunity. I have to do it slowly or the well pump shuts off.
How's that for one ugly paddock.
We are into some premature mud....
After they ate their hay, the ponies went out to the back pasture and nibbled on what they viewed as grass.
Gary helped me with chores and we were done before 9.
When I got in the house I decided to make a one crust apple pie.
Around 1:30 Jenny and the kids came up for some outside time.
But first they wanted to watch a little football. Coop found the Viking helmut.
Seeing that Finn had on his Vikings (Brett F.) football jersey he thought it would be fun to try it on.
Then it was Mom's turn.
While the adults had pie, the kids preferred ice cream.
A yummy afternoon treat.
Coop and Finn both did a little coloring.
The subject for today was houses.
I have a closet full of art supplies, and they frequently draw or paint when they are at the farm.
Grampa did a couple of push ups with Coop on his back and Finn said he could do it too!
The pups got curious when the crew went outside at half-time. What the heck were they doing???
Within about 10 minutes they had a snow man going.
Look at that! Green grass and a snowman....
While we got ready to go to a movie with Randy and Arlene, the kids continued to play in the snow.
Will there be any snow left tomorrow?
During the drive into the movie theater, we passed a whole group of boys playing football.
They must have been psyched about the weather.
The film started at 4.
We saw "Up in the Air" with George Clooney. A little slow at the beginning, but I ended up liking it very much.
Justine did chores tonight. We got home around 6:30 and when we let the dogs out they started barking at the snow man...
It's only 8pm and I'm all done for today. Night all.
