Yesterday just got away from me so I will post for it now.

I decided to milk again this morning to beat the cold front...two days in a row. That must set a record for me. I may do more of that this spring and try some cheeses.
We needed cat and dog food so made a run to two stores.......again. I promise myself to stay out of grocery stores for at least two weeks, but would like to get it up to l month.
We have decided the lovely new Price Cutter's is just way too expensive. I checked out kale (your fault Kris!)and it was almost .75 a leaf! No way this gardener is paying that for any leaf that I can grow myself. Call me cheap....I am.
So, back to WalMart for the major shopping. I committed blasphemy for a cook. I bought a DiGiorno frozen pizza and cooked it for lunch in the new little oven.
My sis and I had one of our lengthy chats the day before and she mentioned she and her husband really liked them for a quick lunch. I report she is right. I will not be buying our old standby Red Baron again! Such is word of mouth advertising.
It is more expensive, but much tastier.
I was able to get a much needed haircut late in the afternoon. I guess I am a rarity among women, but I hate spending any time in a beauty shop! I am in and out in about 20 minutes.
God bless crock pots! I had put a pork roast in when we got back from shopping around noon. All I did was salt it, put about l T. of a beef base for color, put the lid on and turn it to high. By 5 PM, it was done. We had a hot pork sandwich (sliced with gravy over toasted whole wheat bread) with a baked potato. Really very good.

This is the ancient silo standing next to the old barn where I milk Willow. The previous owner said this was an idea from the Extension people and he only used it a few times! What a waste.
