Well, there's 111 posts on last week's thread... Do ya' ever noticed when something is that good you just don't want to let go?! 馃槈

We were scheduled to have our fenceline painted on St Patty's Day. Not green and and now canceled because it's supposed to rain really hard tomorrow morning.

So aside from the rain, our weather is suppose to get somewhat warmer again. We woke up yesterday morning @ 38掳F.

Dinner is our standard salmon. When we grew up it was always chicken on Friday night.

I'd say our horse's shedding is about halfway through. On the other hand he's really thin coated so it's not a terrible job.

When my husband gets home from golf, hope to saddle up our horse and do a little bit of riding in the yard. He (horse not hubby) was a bit of a pinhead earlier this week so we'll see how it goes. Nothing terrible just didn't seem like he wanted to do much and he (horse not hubby, but maybe I won't go there!) had an opinion about everything.

We happened to be near a Trader Joe's yesterday. I was sort of disappointed because usually their eggs are less expensive than Walmart and less expensive than Aldi's. Yesterday they were not. We eat a lot of eggs so we usually have about three dozen in the house. Like I've mentioned before, hubby grew up on a farm with 50,000 chickens. He asked me to not have chickens here. I'm okay with that since I am spoiled in every other way.

@tempest: Hope you feel better! It's hard to not be able to sleep when you're not feeling good.

@Caledonian: I'm originally from the Chicago area and hubby's from Connecticut originally. There's not much 'old' in Chicago and stuff's just a bit more aged in Connecticut.

Thanks for sharing your pix!

Loved the history from our travels in England and Spain. For serious history buffs, IMO, there's so many fascinating things to take in in the Middle East, too.

Posting in the middle of the night... It's around 41 here and raining... Just went out to put some hay on the mat in our boy's open-to-the-pasture stall... When he trotted in get his unexpected snack, his body/neck/chest were wet but still warm (yay!) but his ears were cold... Since I don't blanket, my goal is to keep him from shivering... I worry about rain overnight and cool (for us) temps.

He was happily munching away when I turned off the lights.

@tempest: First, hope you are feeling better. I don't generally have a difficult time adjusting to the Spring forward time change. The thing is, I still get up after 7-8 hours of sleep but because we have an extra hour of daylight at the end of the day I just feel like I'm expending more energy because I'm doing more later in the day. Does that make any sense?
