Very Very Cold at Woodhaven and Lobster Tail

A very cold day
blustery wind and a dusting of snow
Callie will only stay out minutes
then at the door wagging her tail
to return to the warmth inside.

Hopefully these low digit numbers
 will kill the winter weeds that
have over taken my garden.

Yesterday, doctor appt went well
office filled and a long wait.
Then 4 errands and was exhausted
when returning home.
All well and return in 10 days

So I either did too much, stupid remark
or it is body healing, immune problem,
or the youthful spirit has an  old body.

Made a nourishing lunch treat.
A lobster tail in freezer was prepared
with my green beans and potatoes.
Chocolate cake for desert.
Now healing body
take that...

Have seen so few deer this winter
or any kind of wild life.  Guess
there is still much for them to eat in the woods.

But a few days ago at dusk there were 8 in
the front field.
When I open the door to take an image
they scattered....

You prepare nourishing foods and display them beautifully. I am immediately hungry.

Please you are recovering so well.

Loved the deer and news of your life.

Blessings and prayers.
