Dancer was the "queen of the woodstove" today. She knows where there is a warm toasty spot, and the best thing... the dogs can't fit here!!! So, unless Mona decides to join her... this little spot is just for her.
The horses were soaking up all the sunshine they could get. We are in for some snow tomorrow, and then over the weekend as well. I think they sense the change in the weather and take advantage of every good day possible. Duke, for the most part, has settled into our little herd... Tonka will still remind him every so often as to "who is whom" in the herd, but overall, peace is in the pasture. I think the three big guys look a bit like a "oreo" cookie!!!!
Everyone was back at work on the house again. The masons have begun the brick work... this will be the "visual" side of the chimney and the hearth as well. As with any job, getting it started is the most time consuming, once the pattern is laid out, it will go quick from here.
With any luck at all.. this will be the ONLY time that we have ice inside the house!!! We have had a bit of damage, but nothing that can't be fixed... so, we really did come thru the storm well.
