Good 41º morning. Wow, 20º's warmer than the beginning of the week. What a difference. It's actually nice. I'm not freezing my buttinski off! And... the toilet seat wasn't frozen!
Yesterday I was pleased the geese came down off the barn roof and ate some corn and lay in the grass. (They are out there right
now having a snack!)
They are still waiting for more of their 'relatives'.
Should be 2 or 3 more pairs.
Trish called me yesterday, thank you dear, and while
we were chatting I noticed this hawk sitting on the
top of a pine tree surveying the area...
Friday I started my newest infusion project...
basil infused vodka.
It definitely smells like basil and has a fresh clean
almost 'green' taste to it. I like it! With a couple ice
cubes and a lemon wedge..... Mmmmmm....
Maggie and I went to Patty and Cliff's for a wonderful
corned beef and cabbage (+potatoes and carrots) dinner!
Maggie kept and eye on us...
and Cliff watched the car races, kindly with his headphones on!!! LOL
Patty had some good Chardonnay for me and a funny Valentine's card. The card has a baboon on the front with a heart-shaped box of candy. Inside it says, "As long as he brings chocolate, who cares what he looks like!" Me thinks Patty and Cliff are teasing me about the Geezer Magnet thing!!! LOL
We came home, made a fire, and got snuggy in my chair.
