A hard's the first day of March at last...

I'm recovering from the flu...I missed work Monday through Thursday, went in on Friday because I finally felt nearly human again and wasn't sneezing and hacking myself to death...and BONUS, I didn't have a fever for over 24 hours, so the worst was finally over. Dang.

I feel better, thanks for asking.

We had another visit from the Polar Vortex...I'll be glad when this winter is over with, it's been a difficult one to say the least... before I got sick, I did venture out to photograph the acre after the last big snowstorm, the snow being well past my knees has made it difficult to navigate...these are photos from 2/16/2014

It's been beautiful out there, but too cold to really enjoy a walk beyond to the mailbox and back, or to the bird feeder and back...

I'm laying low today, having a little bit of a snuggle fest with the Little Monster, he's settled down on the couch with me...he's becoming a better kitty, it's been a slow process, his life before us must've been such a horror for him to be such a...well, a monster. He is learning to be a good kitty a little at a time, it's been almost a year already. Patience.

Elizabeth 2/23/2014
While I've been sick, I've missed my daily trips to the barn to see my wee donkey and goats. I did get to see her yesterday and Wednesday, before that was's been reported to me that Elizabeth seems to pine when I'm not there, and can dish out a stink-eye when dissatisfied...she's always happy to see me...and I can't say enough how much I love this wee donkey.

Good news is, my new sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project (click to see previous post January 20th) is going on the full tour this year, that's very cool!

It has been an unusually long winter here too with snow falling as I type this! I hope it all clears up and you can get out farther than your mailbox. Can you give Elizabethe a hug from me. Thanks.
Oh yes, this is the first year I've joined in the sketchbook project.
