Wind chill was about 30 below this morning but I was encouraged by the geraniums blooming in my sunroom. What a treat! I know it’s cold everywhere but soon it will be March and then we’ll be really close to spring.
Gipper and Lexie have been with me for over 2 weeks – almost 3 weeks actually and they have been model boarders. Because it’s so cold and they are my only boarders this week, I moved their beds into the house so it was easier for me to let them in and out. They don’t want to use the dog door so it’s a constant journey to the door and back. Their parents are in Florida but coming home this weekend.
Connie, Claudia and I worked in the classroom again yesterday and this is the mess we left it in because we just couldn’t get it all done. We are very disappointed to find all these extra old books in a box. Many have asked to buy copies in the past but we thought they were all gone only to find quite a few upstairs. So they will be on the sale along with all the original artwork from years past. It was a day full of memories as we emptied box after box. I sorted old newsletters and found Susannah’s picture on the front page of many issues. Can she really not be in the barn? I am still in disbelief that she’s been gone over a week now.
Connie and I are also working on the “save the date” postcards marking the dates of June 4-5-6 for our huge yard sale. Connie is leaving next weekend for the month of March and we are hoping to mail the postcards soon after that.
Rick had to travel in the Southeast US this week in the awful weather – the ice near Nashville, heavy snow in West Virginia and now truck engine trouble in Kentucky. Oh, but he will be glad to get home.

The man who lost his wife in the blizzard has now lost his hands and likely his eyes. I hate to report that but someone asked and I did say I would update you. Poor man!
My email is email@example.com if you need a personal answer in a hurry about anything or just want to chat. I won’t be going many places until it warms up. My pumpkin seeds arrived in the mail this week – can’t wait to plant them!
