The Temperature is Going South....Again

Not too bad this morning, but right now it's 5 degrees and dropping.  Great.

 Interesting questions about the pellet bedding I talked about yesterday.
This is what it looks like after it was soaked, puffed up and spread.

 We had just a dusting of snow today.
I spent a couple hours cleaning the house and making red lentil soup.

 Loving that afternoon sun.

 I decided to give my piano away.  May or may not have another one given to me.
Love paying it forward.
 Once I finished what needed to be done, spent some time by the fire.
 Chores at 5:15.

 The Kleins and Cretneys arrived around 6 for dinner.
We started off by the fire with a few goodies.
 I made soup...
 and paninis (sun dried tomato turkey, swiss cheese, roasted red peppers, bacon and a honey mustard/mayo spread).
Ann brought that's not a tomato, it's watermelon, goat cheese and greens topped with a piece of shrimp.  So refreshing!

 Also had some of Gary's dill pickles and Greek olives.

 Brenda brought a peanut butter pie that disappeared quickly.
 Another great meal with good company.
Night all.


  1. I love the tulips. Would you close the big door up there so the south will stay warm.

  2. I love the tulips. Would you have someone close the North door so the South can warm up.

  3. Lovely! (And I adore that twisted banner pic of windmill!) We're prepping for LOTS of snow. Sweet preggers mare FINALLY decided that staying in the stall all night wasn't so bad. She took one look out this morning and asked to just stay in. It's a miracle! ;-) Will have a full barn of TBs later, riding out the storm. Then I too will put a pot on the stove n curl up by the wood stove (with a cuddly puppy on my lap).
    Good luck to you my northern friend!

  4. Good food and good friends to share with. What could be better in the cold of winter.

    Our N'Easter/Blizzard just started this morning. Will see how it goes for the next few days. Should be fun.

  5. What a cool header picture! You are one artistic lady. I hope all is going well for you. I don't envy the weather you will be getting soon. Stay safe and warm. This blog post made me hungry! Take care.

  6. Hope you are ready for your two feets of snow

  7. I need to remember not to read your blog on an empty stomach. Your header photo is a work of a art!
