Congestion relief ~ Tidbits
You would think the jalapeno's in the chili would have opened my sinuses but they did not. I ended up brewing up hot ginger tea and that seemed to do the trick.
Sadie enjoyed her homemade dog food. She devoured it. I give thanks to the blog "With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart" for posting the references and information regarding making homemade dog food.
I am glad I made it too. Now I feel better in the way of preparedness as well, so if needed I could provide the right foods for them in an emergency. For now, Sadie will get all homemade dog food.
Today is day two with homemade dog food, and she is back to loving on us, tail waging and so forth.
The chickens continue to produce us a good supply of eggs. This is not all of the morning collection either. It's all I could fit in my jacket pockets (ha ha!). While carrying water out to the barn, I forgot the egg basket. Note to self: check eggs for poo before putting them in my pockets.
I was pleased with my progress yesterday, and thanks to the crock pot again, it saved me time - beef stew. There are still remaining chores on the to-do list - take items to recycling, returns to the library, house chores, clean the coop, etc.
I think, now that things are a bit back to normal around here, I'll actually put Christmas lights on the famous bathroom Christmas tree. That tree is the "talk" with the girls and school friends (ha ha!).
I'm told my daughter has posted on her facebook that she is "Goin Home" so this was happy news. The bad part is that she's keeping it all a secret from us. We have no idea when to expect her or if she needs a ride from the airport. She will be the best "medicine" for Sadie, so we are tickled to hear this, yet frustrated in the not knowing part. Kids!
