I'm pretty tired as I got home late last night after attending a banquet with my husband , my son and his girlfriend at the Delta Hotel  in Fredericton for the 37th Annual Meeting of Dairy Farmers of New Brunswick.

Our farm won two awards. The first award was for the Most Improved Milk Quality and the second award was The Excellent Milk Quality. The two awards were $500.00 each. There was four hospitality rooms before the banquet hosted by the banks and Farm Credit Canada and lots and lots of free drinks but I limited myself to one glass of white wine. The buffet was fantastic. I overate but so did everyone else.

It was about 10:30p.m. when I got home and checked my blog and commented on everybody else's. It was past midnight when I got under the blankets and was up at 6:30 a.m. this morning. I've been doing too many late nights lately.

Today I worked my butts off, (well there isn't much left there to work off) lol. I cleaned some pens and today I scrubbed and disinfected them and did my other chores too. It's been raining all day here and the snow is going down fast. Can't say that I'm sorry.

I aged my overflow bottle of Gewurztr for a full two days and I must say, it went down smooth as silk. I love my Gewurtzr. I only had a glass at supper time though.

I had some photos that I took of my holiday plants and couldn't upload them the other day because of my Picasa fiasco but here they are now.

Started from a broken segment from my large Christmas Cactus. I got the parent plant started from a piece of my daughter 's plant. 

I got this red Poinsettia for Christmas last year from our employee and I meant to repot it along with the other but never got around to it. It's starting to change color.

I got this pink one from our church last Christmas too after the Holidays and it's doing it's thing too.

Another one from the church that someone gave me last year. This one is a cream color and is starting to change color too.

                                                         A fushia color Christmas Cactus.
                                        A scarlet  color Christmas Cactus.
                      All my Christmas Cactus were started with a small segment.

I finally attached some pads under my frame to protect my floor. No more old towels under to prevent scratches on the floor. What took me so long???
