Spring is on its way!! It's supposed to get up to 50° today, and the snow is almost melted. My cow had her calf day before yesterday, a little heifer we named Suzy, after her grandmother. So now my herd has increased to two! I'm going to have to look for a bull calf in a couple of weeks so we have something to put in the freezer next year.

In the last two days, I've seen blue jays, chickadees, dark-eyed juncos, red-winged blackbirds, robins, house finches, red-bellied woodpecker, hairy woodpecker (I think), and bluebirds. Yup, now all we need is green grass and flowers!

It's hard to believe that just one week ago, I was still in Florida. It's cold and dreary and snowing here, and I can already feel myself sinking back into weepy depression.

I think instead of having all my plants and lights at the far end of my studio, I'm going to try to move them onto my glass and computer desk. The ferrets have been pretty good lately about not getting up on my desks, so maybe that will work. Then I can have all the light down here. I'm going to make that my day's project.
