Good morning from the mountain.. at a whooping -4 this morning its a bit chilly.
Its9:30am and the sun has finally come out to see us. Still extremely cold out there. Believe me when I say NO BARE SKIN.. I went out and moved my truck a little bit ago and ouch,, didnt take long for me to get back in the house.
Doing some baking today to keep the cook stove burning extra warm.
A strawberry cake has already come out of the oven and a pumpkin pie has gone in. a pine apple upside down cake is waiting its turn. Table is covered with all kinds of baking stuff.
Did the animal check while I was moving the truck,,no new babies yet.. Wont be long 4 of my does are due this month. Everyone is huddled together keeping each other warm. As the sun come out they will spread out a bit.
We have been receiving our seed catalogs,, what a pleasure it is to be able sit and dream of planting as the wind is howling at the door. Cant wait to have dirty fingernails again. making a bigger garden this year. More tomatoes, potatoes, squashes carrots and cucumbers. need to restock the pantry this year as things will be running low by fall. We are hoping to add turkeys and pigs this year to the farm,, if nothing more than for our own personal use. The cost of food is going thru the roof, but so is the cost of grains. But home grown is still best and with all the goats we have and the milk that will be coming in,, pigs will enjoy it every day.
After baking this morning I need to do some sewing and ironing and get things all caught back up. Last week I spent most of the week shoveling out from it was 3 storms but i dont think many hours were between from when one stopped and the other started.
Time to dig out the ole recipe books again and start posting them again,, finally have site working so I can do it.
Well Donut batter is calling my name,, so I hope you enjoy the day and have a wonderful week. As we start fresh in a New Year may you be Blessed beyond your wildest dreams,, but in everything give thanks and be thankful for what you have
