a week (or two) in pictures...

the weather has been beautiful (maybe a little too beautiful for january)---low 70's during the day and 30's-40's at night.  finally see the possibility for some rain at the end of the month---we'll be dancing for it.

some happy plants in one of the cold frames






quince blossoms


billy hanging out with the kumquat tree


staal and i built a wall so the kitties could have a new room with direct access to their cat door and the outdoors.  i framed the wall and staal hung the door and screwed up some old pieces of sheetrock he found.







fred drove up with a load of horse manure for the garden and i gave him a haircut for his efforts.


 we ate some pretty good food.

pork loin and veggies topped with garlic ginger lime sauce

beef and veggies cooked in homemade bone broth and steamed acorn squash


today i put some paint on a pen-and-ink drawing of a succulent i did last year (or was it the year before last?)

 



oh...and i got a new niece and nephew on the 15th.
