Not a very special morning. I think it went down to 7 degrees last night and it was freezing when I went out to the barn.
By the time I finished (Gary helped), it was not exactly gorgeous, but the temperature was up in the low 20s.
No shoveling today....bonus time.
Gary split more wood and pulled my little trailer out to the driveway so I can get more sawdust.
Sid was prowling....
Made a trip over to Lima to pick up some cards I had made at Copy Town. Passed a few interesting places but did not have much success taking pictures through the car windows. By now, the temperature was 33. Can you believe that it is not officially winter yet?
Here is one of the cards I had printed. I was extremely happy with the way they all turned out. It's a drawing by Lydia de Cabiedes, one of my art students who passed away a few weeks ago. I knew her family would appreciate having them.
While I was driving all over the countryside, Gary met Finn and Coop at the bus and brought them here for dinner. Jen had a reception so we had Friday night pizza from Ralph and Rosie's. It was delish.
Both boys love to draw and paint.
Then....they made their debut on Skype.
A 36 minute conversation with their Aunt Steph and cousins Ariana and Daniela.
It took about 25 minutes to get them to settle down...so excited!
So here is an example of their conversation....
Time for a hot shower.
