Sunday Coffee Hour
The snow is arriving slowly. I am so glad there is no wind as well. It will be interesting, at nightfall, to see how much we actually get. You know how word spreads, right? The news said 2-5 inches. I heard up to 8 inches via word of mouth.
This guy. I had to laugh, because he did not move until I tapped the door. I wanted to see which barn he was actually slumming in, so I could plan where to sit the trap. Speaking of raccoon, Hubby told me at his last gathering with the guys, one of them brought raccoon. As in a dish to eat. I can't remember how the guy made it, but Hubby said it was really good. Now, in this day in age, where raccoons eat about everything they can scavenge for, would you eat one? I guess it would depend on where I lived at the time (or where the raccoon was at). I do have it in my "how to butcher" book too.
This weekend, I'm enjoying my canned applesauce as a snack, along with our popcorn we grew. Today, I think I print out our garden list and at least highlight what needs to be ordered (in the way of seeds). I do have a some saved, but some will be new to the garden this spring.
Here is a look-see at the current floor rug I am crocheting. I'm low on yarns in blues and greens, so I'm getting limited with colors. We'll see how it looks when it's all finished. Everyone who has seen my scrap rug is in love with it, so I plan to re-stock (yarn) when I can, and make more.
Oldest Daughter started back to work on the worst weather day. Roads are are bad despite lack of wind. I mentioned "kids" and she retorted, "I'm an adult" to which I responded, "you're my kid and will always be my kid, not matter what age." Even at whatever age they are, I still worry about safety, health and whatnot. It's just in a mother's blood I think.
I slept in today, and that is not normal. Stress can really tire you out. Youngest said she'd make french toast for us this morning, but I haven't see her in the kitchen yet, and it's approaching 10am here now. I guess we'll have brunch. Kind of suiting for a day like today anyway.
