Getting Back to Normal...

 While we were doing chores Gary had a surprise delivery of leaves.  He just finished moving another gigunda load wheel barrow at a time.  Brother, he's going to be busy.
 Berlin and Abbe were very curious.
 With the wind, the weatherman said it was about 22 degrees.

 This weekend we are going to try putting the horses together again.  Abbe and Maggie are buddies.

 I picked half a bushel of apples off the ground (wind helped me out).  That should about do it.
 Class at 10:30.

 My friend Joanne started back today.  She has not been here for years.  I used to trade her art lessons for piano lessons.
 She wants to learn how to use colored pencils so I gave her an exercise to help with blending.  It was very relaxing and I think a new set of Prisma Colors will be in her future.

 After lunch I went to Wegmans and bought too much.  By the time I headed home the sky was back in it's drama mode.

 Evening chores before dark.  Boy, do I ever appreciate feeling normal.

 Berlin was on 2 dex today and still has no hives...will switch to one tomorrow and hope for the best.
 All of them came in muddy.

 Added some lights to the back porch so Gary can see what he's doing when he grills in the dark.
 Finally.....a salad!  Romaine, pears, craisins, crumbly blue and onions.
 Seeing that we have no flowers in the house, I bought this plant at Weggies for $2.49....such a deal!
 Dinner was leftovers that I took out of the freezer...a weird combination, but it tasted great.
 Now.....the fire is calling me.
Night all.


  1. Good to hear you're back to feeling normal. It's an ordeal.

    Love your new header picture. Beautiful dramatic skies again today by you.

    Fingers crossed here for Berlin.

  2. I love, love, LOVE that header picture!

  3. Ah, another wonderful meander through your farm and home. I love the sketch of the collie dog. And LOVE the flowers in a pot. Greetings. Jo

  4. Grilling in the dark is fun way to end a busy day.

  5. When you have your coats on, I know it's cold

  6. I love all your words. Gigunda, ugmo... :-D
