We went out for Kristina's birthday. This is the first time we have ever gone out for a birthday dinner. I always cook at home for everyone. We had a really good time and I enjoyed that I was able to sit and visit with all the family. No cooking, no cleaning!
And...... we picked up a Green House!!
We hope to get started on putting it up next weekend. It is small, but a great start. I am not a good "seedling mom"- so better get busy researching and planning on what to plant. I am very excited to get started.
Today the usual chores slipped by the way side for the most part. A long time ago we used to show horses. There was a horse show in Red Bluff this weekend, one that we used to frequent every year for a very long time. Tonya and I rode up there this afternoon. The horses and show attire remains pretty much unchanged, but all the faces were mostly strangers.
I spent a good portion of the late afternoon sitting on the front porch soaking up as much sun as possible.
The temperatures were very cool and it froze last night-29 degrees this morning! I know, nothing compared to the mid-west and back east.
These are the mountains out back...
Pluot tree in the orchard...
I brought some flowers inside to brighten up the kitchen...
I am working on some new aprons and will be updating my apron page soon.
