the week that summer came...

I s that Abbie... dressed for summer?? What month is this??? We have just come threw a week of real summer weather!! Temps in the high 70's and low 80's, breaking records every day. And while that is good on the wood pile side of things, it is just not right for New England in March!!! Last year (and I checked on the blog) we had three feet of snow and temps in the single numbers.

It was fun to get outside without all those extra layers, but we're not used to it, and I have to admit... I was complaining!!!! Abbie however, had a ball and on this morning, she was so excited to get out there and help with morning chores. She even ran to the coop to let the guinea hens out. Bet there will be good tick eating this summer (uugghhh)

Mona laid in the shade and told those guineas, they could simply walk around her!!!!!

The boys enjoyed breakfast outside... if this weather keeps up, they'll need to shed those winter coats off and fast!!!!

Spring has certainly come early, but what a difference a month makes. We began March with a good old snow storm and sleigh rides, and looks like it will be going out with flowers and leaves. Even the birds are back a tad early and looking for good "real estate" for their families....

Looks like this little gal had made up her mind!!! The weekend is suppose to be cooler and more seasonable.. and really, for now.. it's OK by me.
