I could not believe it...we had 2 or 3 more inches of very wet snow!

Morning chores went quickly with Gary's help. He went to Java for coffee and out to Hamlin Beach for a walk with Randy. I did some shoveling.

I was looking forward to watching the US vs. Canada Hockey game....

while sitting in front of the fire....

When I got in the house, I figured out what we were going to have for dinner and called Jen to see if they wanted to join us.

I made some fresh applesauce...

and put together the ingredients for chicken and biscuits.

The later it got, the brighter the sky became.

It has been many days since there was anything but grey up there.

The thermometer said it was about 38 degrees...

and the ponies lounged in the front paddock.

After shoveling this morning, the snow on the sides of the driveway was even evening I could see some stones and grass.

Around 5, the sky was the brightest.

By the time I went out to do evening chores it became much softer looking.

Can you see the pink?

Of course the pups were with me.

and the horses were waiting patiently.

They were tucked in a little before 6.

Made it to the house before Jenny and the kids arrived for dinner.

Mashed potatoes...

Chicken and biscuits....

Jenny brought a nice salad...

Homemade applesauce for the boys....

who wanted dessert but at the same time said they were too full to eat their dinners.

The little darlings!!!!

With some bribing they ate enough to earn their way to dessert.

Dessert? Finn picked out a Boston Cream Pie and Coop went for cookies.

After dinner, they played for about an hour and went home early enough to get ready for school tomorrow.

Now it's time to take a hot shower and get in some couch time. Night all.

What a lovely life you lead!

That dinner looks delicious, specially on a cold winter's day.

I'm glad you saw some blue (and pink) sky today--a harbinger of milder days to come.

Glad you jhad some blue sky - it looks so welcoming and I'm sure you're looking forward to the warmer weather. The horses are going in later, already? Lori, when you say Chicken and Biscuits, is that a dumpling type of batter/dough on the chicken. Looks yummy and comforting eating. Glad you had your beautiful boys and their mum over. She makes lovely salads like her mum! May it become warmer and warmer this week...

Hi Lori and Gari. That dinner looks a real winter warmer. Still, it's March today, so we can start thinking about spring. You've been having a hard winter, and over here we've been having a real winter that's reminded us of what winter can be like. So spring will be even more welcome. From meory :- The flowers that bloom in the spring, tra la,
Give promise of merry sunshine,
As we happily dance and we sing, tra la,
We welcome the hope that they bring, tra la,
Of a summer of roses and wine.
And that's what we mean when we say of a thing,
it's welcome as flowers that bloom in the spring.
Sorry -waffling on- Mikado.
Cheers, Mike.

If you don't have a recipe blog, you should start one - what lovely meals you make. And everyone knows that dessert can go in and fill up the little cracks that dinner just can't : )

I think yesterday was the first time we had no snow. No blue skies either.
Our ponies want to come in early every day too. I think they are just soooo bored.
Your dinner looks delicious as usual.
