The deck at the old house this morning. Can you believe this weather?
I know from seeing blogs today that people far and wide had snow, from a smattering to a few inches!
Winter... LET GO!!!!
I filled that fortex with warm water, you knew I would.
I turned the warming lights back on in the henhouses, just for the day.
We are going below freezing tonight.
Guess why Lil's on point?
Secret got in the yard again. I actually saw her this time, but could not get a picture fast enough.
She is actually going UNDER the fence, in the one spot that the fencer did not make it tight enough, on the slight terrace in the front. I brought a cement block from the old place to put in the place we
thought was the most vulnerable... but I watched Secret try it until she got through. Thank God Lilly doesn't realize she can get OUT.
Keith and I are talking about what to do to stop this... we cannot have her in the yard, Lilly wants to kill her. I have never seen her react so badly to another dog... she literally becomes a snarling mass of
dangerous dog. Seconds after I took this picture, Abby joined her at the door, growling and barking.
I slipped out and pushed the door shut behind me, and led Secret out of the yard.
I barely had the gate shut when Lilly and Abby managed to slide the patio door and get out.
The perpetrator, who is an elderly lab... she has a white face.
And here is the rest of the story. Secret belongs to my second cousin Kevin, who
lives on the corner. He lost his yellow lab last Thursday to old age, and was heartbroken. He admits they have never been fenced in, but I would feel awful if something happened to Secret while she was in our yard, so something is going to have to happen to secure the fence.
Abby wanted her out of the yard, too!
Then, it was time for this.
Keith's daughters, their husbands, and the babies came for pizza and to see the house for the first time.
We had such fun seeing them, and they got their Easter baskets early.
Baby Carson, the only one who didn't eat pizza!
What a lovely end to a wintry day!
Temps here are going to be going up and down this week... with down more than up... and
I am going to be working hard at cleaning the old place. If I can get
the house finished , I can paint next week. So... we make progress in leaps and bounds.
I have been enjoying reading and getting caught up on all your blogs again... and living vicariously thrrough your
gardening and animal babies!
