Reading Blogs is a delight on these cold, dreary days! Thank you all for helping me.
Another gloomy Sunday with temperatures near freezing but down in the low teens tonight. I call anything under 20° dog nights. We bring Sugar on to the back porch when it dips that low.
I milked this morning. Willow didn't give quite as much as usual but no wonder. The Jersey now follows her up the ramp eagerly like she is afraid to be left alone. I check her udder and if it seems empty I just let her eat. I don't need the milk and I figure her calf does! We have to let them leave at the same time too or the Jersey gets very nervous!
Our neighbor called early this morning after driving his wife to work to tell us not to get out if we didn't have to. The roads were covered in black ice and were very treacherous. I was happy we did our shopping locally yesterday.
The bird feeder is serving double duty these days. I dump the leftover seeds after filling the kitchen window feeder.
Gail and Ilene, I have added you to me list so I will get notified when you post. Gail let me know if you can if the email thing is working for you now.
Lunch today was leftovers but I did make a very simple apple tart with some apples that were getting way past prime. I layered some apple butter on the crust and then a layer of apple slices tossed with sugar and flour, rolled up the crust edges and baked. It may not have been prime but we enjoyed it. I do love having the frozen crusts ready to go. They get soft very quickly laying on my cast aluminum pan.
