27 degrees here this morning.  Wind makes it feel colder.  Finally put the
heater in the greenhouse Tuesday night.  I had to heat lamps in there which
seemed to be doing O.K., until now.  Brrrrrr.  I went out to feed all the
animals at 6:00 a.m. this morning, and walked into the greenhouse to check
the temps.  A nice, balmy 60 degrees in there.  I just wanted to stay in
there all morning long and putter...but I couldn't.
I've been studying for my finals next week...so I haven't spent much time on
the computer.  Plus, trying to put up the tree and decorations.  I'm ready
to start doing the countdown for spring.......all my gardening catalogs are
coming in.
