COTTONWOOD Finally, we were able to get the snow pile off of our porch. I think the animals are happier with the milder weather also. We are hoping for better weather for calving. It is pretty tough for those little ones when it is so cold. A hair dryer blowing on them works wonders!
Did you watch the Super Bowl Game? First time ever for an overtime. I thought both teams played well. The chili and cinnamon rolls delivered by the Haiti team were delicious!
A new business opened Monday, Jan. 30 in the former Coffee Mill in the Mini-Mall in Cottonwood. Veronica Johnson has opened C’est La V’s, a small café. Veronica says she has always enjoyed cooking and loves seeing a smile on someone’s face when they’re eating her cooking. C’est La V’s is not a typical sit-down restaurant. Since Veronica is a solo act she wanted to keep it simple. There are some chairs and small tables available, but she does mostly takeout orders. She has daily specials and soups and a weekly salad special. She is looking to get a beer and wine license and hopes to be able to host things like birthdays, showers and also accommodate meetings. For phone orders you can contact her at 962-9999 or find her on Facebook, C’est La V’s.
