Well, first let me tell you, it is cold! -4° this morning. This is unusual for us but we are surviving. We got 3-4 inches of snow yesterday which isn't that unusual and actually helps insulate foundations and plants form the horrible cold.
We are both perking along. Max is still doing his cow chores and I am pretty much staying inside do my inside chores. I am still making bread. This is the last baking. I am doing English Muffins next.
This is KA's recipe for Oatmeal Toasting and Sandwich bread. I doubled the recipe to get two loaves. It makes such nice,large loaves we cut one slice in half for a serving.
I am happy to report the new chickens have begun laying and we are delighted. I thought we would have to wait until much longer day lengths for eggs.
Not much else to report. Max is now eating almost normal foods, but still is very careful with chewing hard things or even steak.
One new thing that I am happy about is we have hired a local man (who turns out to be the same one who did the screened porch) to enclose our never used porch off the living room (south and west facing) to make a small office area for me. I will finally be able to get the desk and computer out of the dining room.
He is moving very slowly due to other jobs and also because of the weather. We anticipated this and since it does not disturb our living space at all, we are OK with the slow pace.
This is the work so far on the front enclosure.
I hope this belated post finds everyone well and happy. Best wishes from the cold Ozarks!
