Actually Bet may wish to post about her culinary doings today so I'm just forewarning you of pictures that may cause overeating.
Today we sheared Kathy's sheep, I'll give her the chance to post pictures of her own sheep first, aren't I being courteous today? But now we are all home thawing out. Buggers it is cold out.
Tomorrow the duck fence goes up because the logging trip was canceled. Which in my world is a good thing because I am not thinking of next year's heat but this year's onion plants that are being pulled out. The little stinkers. They don't even eat them, they are onions after all, so why do they feel the need to pull them out?
They also need to be kept from sitting on the garlic bed. I am trying to console my garden heart by telling myself that sitting on my garlic is keeping lice or something off of my little duckies that I love but that can be just this side of maddening.
No pictures today at all because lately Blogger will only upload one of my pictures at a time. Tia is going to show me how to change my pics in Photoshop so that they are smaller or something any way technical lingo and understanding aside she said they would load much faster. So I am hoping that not only will they load faster but they will actually load. However, this will cut into my Mahjong playing time.
Tuesday is St. Patrick's Feast Day, feast days are usually celebrated on the death of the saint or whomever is being celebrated. And much like Shrove or Fat Tuesday I am saddened that it has turned into an excuse for debauchery. I like beer as much as the next Northern European import to America, but it doesn't need to be green and I don't need to drink so much that I can't remember why my beer is green.
But making things green isn't a bad idea, green is a very meaningful color, it is the color of:
- evergreen, never changing like God.
- promise of eternal life
So because green is significant and in the middle of this season (winter/spring and lent) green can be a welcome reminder of what is to come, the girls and I will be making green velvet cupcakes to take around on Tuesday to all our town folks.
Oh man, just had a bite of the turkey pot pie. Sorry but this post has come to an abrupt end. Till next time Dear Reader, take care of what God has given you.
