Another week of staying at home, working outside and then getting two puppies. I’ve had a couple of pretty miserable days with the puppies who have now finished 3 days of worming. The worming medicine gives them diarrhea – black liquid stools – everywhere! I’ll bet I cleaned up 100 puddles of diarrhea before I gave up last night and moved them out to the indoor/outdoor kennel in the quilt shop. Here they are looking pretty adorable.
I’ve decided it was my stupidity that had them in my house in the first place – now I let them out of the kennel many times throughout the day and I sit outside and watch them. Hazel would like to join in their play but I just know she doesn’t want to stoop to their level – ha! She’s a diva for sure.
Life on the farm has always meant mowing the ditch and last year I struggled with the walk behind mower on the inclines. I’ve always used mowing the ditch as my benchmark for living on the farm. If I can still mow the ditch, I can handle almost anything around here. Today I mowed it for the first time with new knees and I was so pleased! I have to admit however that after I sat down for a bite to eat, my knees were extremely stiff when I stood up again. If any of you are contemplating knee replacement surgery, go for it! Last summer was very miserable with knee pain – I couldn’t do anything! And this summer is looking great – so far!
Here was lunch – cauliflower salad and garlic toast.
I know you’re gonna ask about the recipe. I made a small amount.
1/2 head cauliflower, cut into small pieces
4 green onions, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 small bag of frozen peas
Dressing: 1/2 c. Mayo
1 tsp. Lawry salt
Adjust the ingredients you like best.
That’s all I have today – it’s time to hang your little May Flower quilt that you ordered from us – send me a picture – everybody is interested. Also the two flag Itty Bittys – Memorial Day is coming up! Here they are again – $3 each and a SASE.
Hazel thought she saw a mouse in the feed room window today so I lifted her up to look. No mouse.
And I found Mama sleeping in the goat’s hay bunk.
It’s been another nice day – mid 60’s and south wind but Rick is busy planting the garden while I puppy sit. Another week of social distancing ahead.
