Well, yesterday was “barn day”, as every Wednesday is, and I have to say 28 degrees felt like summer! What a difference it made! The sun was shining, the horses were happy, the doors were open! whew!  I wasn’t immediately freezing. The younger kids actually played outside.

I haven’t had a chance to start my lunch bag – maybe this weekend. – Although this Saturday is my birthday! and Sunday Jaia has a feis. (irish dancing competition) Tomorrow I’ll walk you through our feis prep –

Have a wonderful Thursday! Enjoy the sun – and

Bright Blessings –
