It’s a frosty morning and will be a cold few days heading into spring. We won’t be planting our potatoes today.

We had our corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and carrots with my parents on Tuesday. I put a second corned beef brisket in the freezer for later. They are only available seasonally around here.

I finished _The Cloisters _. I wasn’t “in love” with any of the characters, but loved the descriptions inside the museum and the different areas of NYC. The plot wasn’t fast moving but I kept turning the pages to see what happened next. I found the ending a bit disturbing even though that was exactly where the author was leading.

I finally got _Demon Copperhead _ by Barbara Kingsolver from the library. It took several months on the wait list to get my turn. I’m a huge Kingsolver fan an the first 100 pages don’t disappoint. Damon Fields ( aka Demon Copperhead) reminds me of a few boys who struggled through middle school, bouncing around between relatives and foster homes. Hopefully their lives were not as horrific as in the book, but I know they were slipping through the cracks in spite of the teachers and our councilors who pushed the limits on how much they could legally do to help.

One of Junior’s cousins helped them do a seasonal photo shoot with JD. cutest leprechaun I’ve ever seen.
