I thought I should change the photo to reflect what things are looking like now. Even the fields have greened up.

Just did routine house work and then decided to go to the park and walk while DH did his exercise.
It was 31° and pretty breezy, but I made it around the walking track. The park is very small and open with streets on both sides so I feel safe walking there alone. I hadn't done that for a while and began to wonder if I would make it. It is just a 25 minute walk!
I went by the library to return some books and then picked DH up and we went home.
I spent most of he afternoon reading.
Wednesday, February 23, 2011. 35° at 4 AM but warmed up as soon as the sun was up. I should have milked.
I made peanut butter cookies for DH. I can't vary the recipe; it has to be the one out of the old BH&H cookbook.
While the oven was still warm, I made granola again; he is keeping me busy making this.
Back during the holidays I cooked a cheap brand of turkey and thought it was too tough so just froze the deboned bird and the carcass. Yesterday I got out the carcass added seasoning and about a cup of chopped celery and water and cooked it for a couple of hours. I also got out the turkey breast and thawed it and diced it. I had two bags of frozen homemade biscuits in the freezer. I made a huge pot of turkey pie. There is still some dark meat for soup left.
We will be eating it for some time! It was very good if I do say so myself.
I put a suet cake out on the tree stump and the birds found it.
