“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

Another Record Breaker...

 Yep, we had some sun today (not all day...but most of it).

 I got a lot of the mud off the girls last night and tried to finish the job this morning.

 Went to Wegmans after chores and had lunch when I got home.  Honey oat bread, lettuce, tomato, swiss cheese and thinly sliced chicken.  Hit the spot.
 Seeing that it was 69 degrees, I went out and did some raking under that dirty willow tree. 
Branches all over the place.  By then, the sky was full of drama.
 There was a repeat performance by Abbe.

 Berlin was not quite so bad.

 A quick dinner.
 Sauteed some onions and when they were done I added some frozen peas.  Also defrosted some leftover Swedish meatballs....threw everything together with some pasta and it tasted great.
 The salad was romaine, onion, pears and craisins with a little crumbly blue.
Now if we just had some dessert hanging around the house.  I just might have to make some popcorn later (while I'm watching "The Good Wife.")
Night all.


  1. That sky sure is looking stormy. Boy lady, you are good in the kitchen
    Benny & Lily

  2. some quite artistic shots; the basketball backboard. . .
    your skies, your words your post, are all the winter my bones can deal with. I admire and salute your winter courage, Friend!

  3. Mmmm! Sunshine and... 69?! degrees? Wow. That's a record indeed. Very odd. It almost makes me uncomfortable.. Your salad looks as Mmmm as the sunshine!

  4. 69 degrees!!! We're still wicked-cold (-4 right now). One more cold day, and then relief.

  5. 69 degrees? Are you serious? We didn't get out of the 30s here! That's just wrong... (and I'm jealous)

  6. Wasn't the Good Wife funny tonight... lots of humor thrown in. I love the redheaded lawyer and am excited she's going to be on the show more. Her quirky character makes it fun.

    I would love to bask in 69 degrees.... sounds wonderful. My joints are hurting as we have a snow storm moving in. It was 34* and raining at my house early. Our roads are going to be horrible. Notlooking forwrd to this.

  7. Great pictures. The muddier they get the happier the horses seem. I wonder why that is.

    We haven't gotten out of the 40's here and it's still very foggy. Supposed to be in the 50's today but we'll see.

    I taped the Good Wife last night so will watch it tonight. Can't wait.

  8. Abbe brings a whole new (something - can't think of the word) to turn out rugs. One with a full hood probably ;-).

  9. I think Abbe and Berlin must roll in the mud so you'd have something to do. Little do they know how busy you truly are. Maybe they also just like to be brushed.

    Wonderful rustic photos of your place.

  10. Always nice to get a break in the weather. You have quite a talent at throwing meals together. I always get tips here : )

  11. I thought you were having freezing weather when you said you set records... not spring-like weather! It seems that your weather has been very changeable!

  12. Amazing ... 69 degrees. It's colder in our barn! Love the photo of the basketball hoop. Your delicious sandwich is getting to me. Haven't had lunch, yet. Need to check the clock before I click on your site. :-)

  13. Beautiful pictures as always! I love when horses are naughty and get all muddy-totally cracks me up :) but that might only be be wise my horses don't have access to muddy areas yet-hehehe. I'll be eating my words soon enough :)

    Yum-popcorn sounds great! Wish I could come over and have some with you!
