OK we're not having a white Christmas but look at my sourdough starter. I fed it about 5 hours ago and its really bubbling away. And it smells like old gym socks! I can't wait to make bread from this.....
This is a photo from last year, in Feburary. I'm jealous because so many people are having a white Christmas this year and its just raining here, so we'll have a wet Christmas. Merry Christmas anyway, and have fun in the snow.
She's a cat of very few words. Full of meows but short on words. We've had some nasty cold weather lately and we let our outside cat, named "Cat" in the house for the first time. She liked it so well she parked on my chair and has not moved in two days. I have to eat in my bedroom as she won't get out of my chair. Anyway, she's the cats meow.
The story of Thanksgiving Long ago, people called Pilgrims left their home in England and came across the ocean to America in a boat called the Mayflower. They built their own houses, planted seeds they had brought with them, and made friends with the Indians, who were already living in America. The Indians taught them how to plant corn and hunt and fish for animals that they could eat. In the fall, when the corn was ready, the Pilgrims picked it. The Indian friends they made wanted some corn and the Pilgrims would not give them any. Jealousy grew and the Indians stole some corn and the Pilgrims killed many Indians. Many many moons later the Indians built casinos for the Pilgrims to lose all there money in and thou they did not have corn the Indians gained much green from the Pilgrim. That is the story of Thanksgiving.
Dad took his shoes off this time. Sometimes he wonders how I know he walked in the house with muddy shoes. One time the floor was sticky so I asked him if he spilled something and he said he did but he cleaned it all up. Go figure.....
We picked tomatoes the other day. I've already canned two batches and it looks like I'll be canning more.
We celebrated Dans birthday today by going to the seven feathers casino. Oh darn! We forgot to take Dan. Well he should be getting used to that by now. Hope you had a great birthday today Dan, hope you didn't spend it sitting on the porch.
We stopped at a produce stand on the way home, got some corn for 10 for $1.00. And some cantalope for 3 for $1.00.
This goat has driven me crazy. If I check into a insane asylum now and with months and months of treatment I may be able to live a normal life. Or I could just get rid of the goat. Nah she's to cute. Just give me my teddy bear and leave me alone.
Thanks goodness that the previous blogs are thru, it was exhausting. I promise to post about more interesting stuff now, like bees and bats and haunted trees. You've seen this before but I made a few changes. I like it. The neighbors drive by this every day but never comment about how cool it is. In fact we used to chat but now they roll up there window and zoom by. I wave but they look the over way. I should give all the trees here a face, it would be the friendlest forrest anywhere.
This is my blog, it is only a blog, do not attempt to adjust your computer, it will return to normal when you leave. Please do not wave your hands about and keep small children with there parents. I am not responsible for anyone reading this blog, read at your own risk. Thank you for your support.
A few months ago we had bats living on the porch. squeezed in between a couple of 2 by 4s. I kicked them out one night and felt so guilty about being the Bat Terminator that I built this bat house. They were leaving bat droppings everywhere. Anyway, I built this cool bat house from directions on the internet. People really care about bats, I thought I was weird, well I am but so are other bat people. I went out tonight and bats are living in my bat house. I'm so happy. I didn't build it exactly like the ones on the internet, I figure the bats don't have little bat rulers, and bat specs. I hope they stay here all year long.
I was making a soup today. I asked Dad to go get 1 large or 2 med or 4 small carrots. He said, huh so I repeated what I just said only LOUDER. He comes in with theses carrots and says he could'nt find any small one's so picked all big one's. I said "huh"?
I noticed the goat eating the neighbors tree last nite and this morning. Boy they like that tree, I thought. Come to find out she got her head stuck in the fence. The poor thing was there all night. More live storys from the farm to follow as they happen.
The neighbor lady gave me some strange plants. This is the result of one of them. Since then she has moved away. I think I seen a spacecraft leave when she left. I think I seen little green men get on. Or is this a vege. Pictures don't lie, I think its from Mars.
It seems that every year we try a new vegetable. This year it is Bok Choy, and you know its really good. We've tried Kale, Swiss Chard, Rutabaga's, even sasify. Hey I just grow them I can't spell them. I'll have to post some photos of the really ugly veges we grow, some are down right scarey.
This is the Daddy Llama to the new baby. My goodness what a Llama! We were thinking of breeding him to our own Firecracker but if Blacky seen this monster who knows what would happen. This thing looks like it could run the Belmont and win.
For all you people that aren't reading this, at least somebody likes me.
My nephew Dan, girlfriend Crystal and son came to visit. We hadn't had company for so long it was strange that someone wanted to see us. And no one but Dan reads my blogs so I have to wait for them to get home to see if they read this blog. Look, Crystal is even smiling as if she's enjoying the visit. (more than I can say for the other two)
The dog was barking last night. I let her out, she ran to the river and barked more. Coon, I figured. Then she ran back to the house and right in front started sniffing as if something was just there. Skunk, I thought. She ran back to the river, barking, and something from the dark came at me, I could'nt make it out but it was dark, not the dog, and moving toward me. It got bigger as it got closer. It stopped just short of me and, "Meow". It was the darn cat. About scared me to death.
