Friday on the Farm

Last Friday was gorgeous and I got the chance to spend some time in Hartville at my friend Kathy's farm. Sheep, chickens, a lamaa, dogs, cats and of course, horses! Anyone who knows me, knows that I love horses. Each of these photos really makes me smile!

Happy New Year -- 2008

The weather has blown in a cold snowy 2008. I didn't leave the house on New Year's Day except to shovel the steps and part of the driveway in anticipation of trying to get out of the driveway today!

Three New Year's gardening resolutions:

1) to plan out my garden while it's covered in snow. What do I want to move? Separate? Plant? Mulch? Eliminate? And what order will I do it in? I know I want to use more purple, yellow and red in the side garden next to turn around

2) to buy some pruners, sitting stool with wheels, and new little fence to try to keep the dogs out in March/April.

3) to add more compost to each of the gardens, but especially the one next to the turn around. The ground has so much clay in there and it's my newest garden.

So while I'm waiting for the snow to melt, I may as well hang out in the house, read my new gardening book from Christmas and dream about being out in the garden.

Or I can win the blogger's contest to get Orville Redinbacker Popcorn & a Netflicks movie every week during 2008! It's a contest only open to bloggers. The rules are simple: you just have to mention the contest in a post by Jan 11 (this one qualifies!) and then link back to Roni at http://weightwatchen.com and to Orville http://orville.com. The winner gets picked January 11th, so I don't have to wait too long!

Maybe I'll rent "the secret garden"! Whoot!
