I forgot to show you the painting our friend Sara did of L'orange. She gave it to us Christmas Eve.
Looks just like him....don't ya think?
It was extremely cold here today (2 degrees with the windchill) so he was most happy to snuggle up in his little "cubicle/box/bed."
|She seemed fine, so we proceeded with chores.|
|Gary would have to put the wall back in place when he got back from coffee. You can just imagine how thrilled he was.|
|It started to snow and the wind was nasty. The Vet came for an appointment with Mustafa late morning and then we the horses back in the barn.|
Back to the house and made sure Sid and Seymour came in.
Started making some beans and greens for dinner. Monday night! Jenny and the boys.
First I sauteed some garlic and onions....then added a large can of crushed tomatoes and four cups of beef (or chicken) stock.
Sid was not interested.
At 4 I let the horses out....cleaned the stalls and set up for evening chores. It did not seem quite as cold as it was this morning.
The sky was actually quite beautiful.
Got back in the house by 5:20. Added beans, baby spinach and pasta to the soup.
Topped it with Romano cheese.
The salad...mixed greens, pears, walnuts, dried cranberries and onion.
Served with crusty Italian bread.
After dinner there was a competitive game of Junior Monopoly.
Followed by an outrageous Skyping with their cousins in Nevada.
Time for a cupa tea and the fire.
Night all. Fortunately, we may get up into the low 40s in the next couple of days.
