Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I have always liked Valentine's Day. It's a fun day to do a little something extra to let your loved ones know that they are special! When we were little, my sister and I always got a card and maybe a little gift or some candy from our Mom and Dad. We never expected anything big, but it was fun knowing that there would be a "little" something special for the day.

It was especially fun this year with our special little valentine, Tressie! Even though the babe has her second cold of the season, she was having fun.

Here she is "reading" her new Fancy Nancy Valentine book.

And here it's her Dora's Valentine Adventure book.

And this one, her Puppy Love book, she prefers to eat!

She got a set of little Mickey Mouse Clubhouse toys. She is pretty familiar with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto as she watches them every morning while she is eating her breakfast!

Happy Valentine's Day, Tressie! We love you lots!

Cold Morning!

On my last post, I was enjoying the beautiful day of temperatures in the low 70's! This morning, not so much! I am a warm weather girl, and am NOT enjoying these cold temperatures! This morning it is -7 and I am not sure of the wind chill. The Denver tv station is showing wind chill of -25 for Burlington, and -31 for Lamar. I'm sure that we are somewhere in that mix.

This is a picture outside our dining room window this morning at about 7:00 a.m.

We have a fairly large covey of quail hanging around the ranch. I enjoy watching them. However, I feel sorry for them this morning as it is obvious that they are not enjoying the morning temperatures either!

It sounds like we will have warmer temperatures this week-end. Am looking forward to that!
