It Really Hit 8 Degrees This Morning.....



 What a gorgeous start to the day....too bad my hands were freezing.

 Can you tell I'm not getting around much anymore?  I think they call it vegging.  In that sitting by the fire mode and being lazy.  

By late afternoon the sun was doin' it's thing.
 It did manage to get up to 31 degrees.
 Went out a little after 5 to tuck in the girls.  One of them is in trouble as there were several boards knocked down.  We'll be busy tomorrow.

 Jenny came up for dinner.

 We all needed a pasta fix.
Night all.  Maybe I'll get the lead out tomorrow.

 I think we had a high of 24 degrees today.  Fortunately it came with a good dose of sunshine.

 As it got brighter, it almost looked like steam was rising in the back 40.

Leftovers for lunch.
 I love to put cranberry-orange relish on a turkey sandwich.  (Yesterday we made a turkey breast so Finn and Coop would not miss out and I kept enough to make 2 sandwiches today).  If you saw my pictures yesterday, we did not have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.  Instead, a roasted pork loin stuffed with caramelized apples, onions, apricots, prunes and craisins....along with potato pancakes, applesauce, sour cream, acorn squash (from our garden), stuffing, gravy, cranberry-orange relish and a waldorf salad.  Not to mention three pies made by Jenny (pumpkin, pecan and apple).
 Who would guess that we could be hungry today?

Spent the afternoon in front of the fire....watching a movie.

Evening chores at 5.  Didn't feel too bad out there.  Tonight it is supposed to go down to 9 degrees and back up to 35 tomorrow.

Tucked those ponies in and am ready for a nice hot shower.
Night all.
