20 Acres One Sheep?

Girl of the House had one last spring break day of freedom. She returns to school tomorrow.

As she had the day off, she made the supper tonight.

Her first meatloaf.

She didn't care much for the actual mixing of the ingredients.

I've been suffering from a lack of ambition.

No-one likes to go back to work after a mini-vacation, do they?

I've done a little of this

A little of that

And a bit more of that other thing.

(This one actually got finished.)

Temporarily, we are no longer 20AcresNoSheep.

We are 20AcresOneSheep. And a BlackSheep, at that!

Many thanks to Coleen and Harlan.

17 inches of snowfall

The final word on the snowfall at Tofte was 17 inches.

It was an amazing change of scenery!

It drifted in around the truck. We had to excavate a bit to load it up and get home.

For the remainder of spring break, Girl of the House and I are working on her room.

Now that she's thirteen, she needs an updated room.

(What she really needed was a deep cleaning and de-cluttering, but we're calling it an 'updating'. It's all in the phrasing, isn't it?)

We carried everything out of the room, and we're placing the 'keepers' on this sheet in the family room.

I guess Paris must think he's a keeper.
