I am working on sprucing up my front porch. Here is my new addition - a wooden porch sign.
As promised, here is my other "chicken scratch" patterned hot pad.
Last fall, I froze my abundance of green peppers. For some, I put them ziploc freezer bags, and for others I used glass canning jars.
The results? Well, the bags worked out perfect. I was trying to see if I could avoid plastic bags, but they work better than the jars. If you freeze in canning jars, line a piece of something between the rim and lid. Air gets in there and you have a large build up of ice on your peppers.
Remember the woodpecker's nest?
Baby and Momma have come out of their nest today. I heard a bunch of noise, and went out to check. Mom flew over the house, and baby flew out of the nest. Seconds after this photo, baby flew off too.
Sickness updates: Three of us were down yesterday by bedtime. One went back to school, but I will be going back to bed after the last one is on her bed. This virus is nasty this time around. Each of us have had different symptoms.
I spent most of my day in the rocker on the porch. Our power went out due to a car accident up the highway. When our power goes out, we lose running water (no pump, no cooking, no anything). It was so windy, there was no way I was going to use my grill. We waited it out, and those who were not sick hand peanut butter sandwiches and pears. Thankfully, it came on just before 9pm.
We were concerned about the goat going into labor in the barn, without a light. Our camping lanterns need new batteries. I did dig out a string of battery operated lights. Those are staying handy until Peanut delivers.
I better get off here before the "clean police" here catch me putting my germs on the keyboard....
