Today it is still warm for February. But the winds are up and supposed to blow in a snow storm tonight. Still a flock of about 50 robins showed up a few days ago and have been singing their little hearts out. I hope they know something about spring that I don't! The chickens have enjoyed a week of getting out and stirring up the leaf debris in the field. They are a happy lot..clucking and canoodling with The Rooster I Call Bob all over our property and the neighbor's horse pasture.
The knee is a bit better. Still restless nights and I finished the Tailchaser Song book. I have 2 dvds to watch. One on Cezannne in Provence and another movie about Rembrandt called Nightwatching. That is the fun thing about Netflix. I rent all the art movies and documentaries along with some of the newer releases and watch at my leisure. Problem is I watch them late night and then snooze a bit through them! Then I have to go back and see what I missed!
I did see the Scottish Deerhound win the Westminster Dog Show. Now there is a wonderful breed. I always wanted one. But the breeders are a closed lot and they put you on a waiting list after you have provided references. Then they keep your dog for 3 years as they show and finish its' championship! A friend who had been showing German Shepherds successfully for years and whose husband is the retired CEO of a well known toy company (with the $$ to spend) could not get a deerhound!!
So I have never owned one.
The photo I posted today was one I took a few days ago when the sun decided to come out of hiding.
I hope to get started on making some eraser stamps and building my journals today.
No news on the job call back. So I assume I am not in the running. Still they have the rest of the day to call!
I hope you all have a great day today. I intend to!
