Three years ago yesterday we went to Connecticut to look at some half corgis that had come up from a southern state. The very nice woman said to another, "They have come to look at 'Stella'." We took one look at a little white with one spot sitting in the back of a horse stall being jumped on by her rambunctious brothers and said, "No, we've come to take 'Stella' home." She was such a timid little pup that she obviously needed a home that did not involve bullying brothers.
We decided That 'Stella' was a no go. Wandering around the woods, if she got off her run, Yelling STELLA! did not appeal at all. We named her Winter, because she is white and we could have a good time calling her the littlest Dire Wolf and saying, "WINTER IS COMING!" Obviously there has been entirely too much Game of Thrones in our lives.
This is the way Winter looked yesterday. Notice that the snow by the slab has melted and daffodils are beginning to show.
It's a far cry from the day we brought Winter home. That was a particularly warm spring. Of course we did have a drought later in the summer!
I made banoffee pie for Pi Day. It was delicious!
Yesterday we lost our electricity for several hours in the early evening. We hooked up the inverter, got out the gas stove and continued life. Every house should have a power inverter!
Today is sunny but very windy. It's a good day for working indoors. I am getting ready to fire the kiln Big Mama this weekend.
Here's to sunny days ahead!
As always, thanks for stopping by..............*s*
