This snowy fence picture was taken this past Sunday morning on my walk.HERE.
✿ ✿ ✿ ✿A cloudy morning today for my walk but it was a warm 55 degrees. Hard to believe I took the snowy picture above just a few days ago.
My walk today took me down toward Happy Trials and then back to town, around the cemeteries and the ball park loop. Not as many people about as yesterday.
Walking up to one of the cemeteries I met Farmer Marvin driving by with a rolled hay bale on his tractor bringing the hay to Star and the other horses. I snapped a quick picture. These things are HUGE when you are right next to them!!
Down around the ball park loop I got a picture of this Robin on the fence.
I've seen quite a few Robins so far this year
but this is the first one that was still long enough so I could get a picture.
Found a penny too. : )
✿ ✿ ✿ ✿Home in the morning and then after lunch we went up to Happy Trails. Didn't work on the cabin though. We have a little stream that is full of leaves and debris and I worked on clearing a small part of it out so we could see the water running. Still have a long way to go. Ken was on the tractor moving some huge rocks around and continuing working on the stone wall. It was cloudy with just a few peeks of sun but a warm day and we enjoyed our time up there.
I cooked our supper tonight in a Reynolds plastic oven bag. Has anyone used them before?
The recipe calls for a 14 x 20 bag but I didn't have that size so used the next bigger size.
2 Tablespoons flour
1/3 Cup water
1/2 Teaspoon EACH Basil, thyme, and salt
1 med onion
1 red pepper
Chicken pieces - seasoned with paprika
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Shake flour in bag, place in baking pan.
Add water, basil, thyme and salt to bag.
Squeeze bag to blend ingredients.
Cut onion and potatoes into wedges.
Slice carrots and pepper into cubes.
Add vegetables to bag. Turn to coat.
Arrange in even layer.
Place chicken in bag and close with tie.
Make 6, 1/2 slits in top of bag.
Here it is on my plate and ready to eat.
Looking forward to starting the next Louise Penny book later.
I wish you a happy day.

My Three Happy Things Today
- Getting the bird pictures
- Being up at Happy Trails
- A nice cold glass of milk
Kerri - I hadn't planned on that idea with the window but it is a good one. Thanks, I'll have to get another window and try it.
Lisa - You have another great idea for the window.Thanks.
Melanie - the color of my car is Torch Red. The sun may have washed out the color a bit. Someone once told me that they liked to watch me fold myself into the seat. : ) If you lived near me I'd take you for a ride.
