We Caught A Break Today.

A break in the weather.  It was cold alright, but no wind and the sun came out.  I'll take it!
 Started off with some snow.

 And ended up with sunshine.

After lunch I decided to go to drumming.  A friend gave me this drum and I brought it along to see what Khalid had to say about it.  It weighs about 1/3 as much as my djembe and is very easy to carry.  Played it for 3 hours and although it was different, it was not too bad.

After we performed last Saturday I was motivated to get a couple more African shirts.  It's good to have a choice as I have been participating more with "Umoja."

 I have a skirt (and headpiece behind top) to go with this one.  It is from Nigeria and was given to me by a friend (whose husband got it for her many years ago while he was visiting there).

Very bright on my way home (4:15).

 The moon was already in view when I got back to the farm.

 Chores at 5:15.
 Got the girls tucked in and it was still not dark.

 Leftover cabbage soup....(surprise)
 with a nice hunk of bread topped with melted swiss cheese.  Apples on the side.  Easy dinner.
17 degrees with snow on the way.
Night all.


  1. Days are getting longer. More chore time. Or lazy time. Depends.

  2. Oh I love those shirts! I have a hand made short poncho from Guatemala that I just love. The colors are amazing!
