Weekend

December 08, 2013







Another busy weekend of craft shows.  One more craft show weekend to go - woo hoo!  Next weekend we're back in Glens Falls and then we're on hiatus for a bit.  Emerson and Oliver are bummed that our weekends are spent away.  Poor guys - they just want one relaxing day where we sit and drink coffee in the morning and spend time with them.  The good old days.  I'm with them.  I miss the weekend mornings where I wake up, take the boys out, then make a hot cup of coffee while they eat.  Together we watch the sun slowly light the property.  I love to go outside and listen to the Coop Girls chat about their daily treat and their plans for the day.  They are some busy girls!

We got a sprinkling of snow Friday night.  Not even enough to measure but enough to make everything sparkle and glisten this morning.  We were supposed to get 2-6 inches of wintry mix.  They are predicting snow tonight and I'm thinking we may be able to measure it this time.

The Coop Girls are just about finished molting.  Trudy is pulling up the rear and is just beginning to get her feathers back.  Poor girl.  Two of the newer Coop Girls are very naughty.  They are escape artists.  Chicken Deb and Chicken Danielle seem to think if the outdoor coop is closed, it's only closed to the others.  Not them.  So, they fly up and squeeze themselves through a small slit in the netting.  We took care of that problem tonight.  Tomorrow we're hoping they realize we know best.  Stay in when we aren't home so the neighbor's outdoor cat and the fox we've seen run through our yard can't get them.

I did not get my tree up.  Jack's pretty bummed.  He enjoys playing with all the ornaments I hang just for his amusement.  The wreaths are up, the holiday music is on, but the tree has yet to make it's appearance.  I'm going to try again this week.  Where does the time go??

I didn't even get any soup made, a weekly ritual I rarely break all fall and winter.  There's nothing better than a big bowl of soup and a slab of homemade bread on a cold day.

Hoping you are having a wonderful weekend!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Quick Bread

November 07, 2017


It's pumpkin season and this may be a perfect way to put it to good use.  This bread is light on pumpkin flavor but super moist and extremely delicious.  You can also freeze pumpkin puree measured into 1 c. containers to make this throughout the winter.  


I have not yet attempted a vegan version of this.  If I get brave I'll let you know......  Be careful not to over bake it.

Fall Is Almost Over?

October 24, 2017



Is it possible that fall is almost over? Temp's here are in the upper 60's and low 70's so you'd never know that it's the end of October. This just doesn't usually happen! Even the leaf peepers were likely disappointed this year........it was so warm that the leaves just kind of crumbled off of the trees. Although they were pretty, there didn't seem to be the same brilliance of color that is...
