Eerily Calm

Our weather has been so cold, clear and's eery when we hear about all the havoc being reeked on the east coast.  Maybe the calm before the storm....I hope not.

One of the things I did recently was harvest my basil that's been growing in the sunroom...

A couple of  the plants had died...probably from the cold seeping through the windows, so it was time to harvest it before it all died!

I just love fresh basil pesto!
