I love the smell of coffee in the morning. I thought I would start your day with a chuckle.

If there's serious cooking to be done, and I think that's a given here, we'll probably need an herb garden -- and a truck garden. Climate's no problem; what the heck -- it all can go under a dome. Plus we can just declare it weed-free at the start and it will be.

The kitties are sitting in the window tryinig to catch the snow flakes every time one lands on a window pane. They are so adorable. When I laid down for a nap, they jumped up on the bed. Every time I wiggled my toes, they thought they had a new toy to play with. So much for that nap. They each have their own bowl for feeding. I gave them a small amount of kitten food. One gobbled hers right down and then tried to push her playmate away so she could eat that too. I picked her up and held her in my lap while the other one finished eating.

I saw that. Mine was supposed to be an add on to yours around the left. That's it...an addition! Sorry PF, I only saw picture #1 the first time. Totally missed the second shot. We do need an outdoor pizza oven though and this was as close as I could get.

I'll plant the tomatoes, onions and strawberries. I apparently have a knack for those. Picture below is 3 week growth.
