Despite the cold temps, like zero and below, we did spend a lot of time outside this week. Why? I really have no clue! None what so ever. But it made for fun times and great memories.
I also tweeked my chocolate chip recipe this week, much to the worry and fear of the natives, because, well, I make really great chocolate chip cookies, so why was I messing with perfection?!?!? I am happy to report they turned out just as good, if not better then the originals!!
So what made me smile this week.....
You see this egg? There is something special about this egg. Really there is!
Buffy had laid an egg IN the nest box!!!! This NEVER happens!
|Excess me Heidi the Homestead Hound.... are you on my couch? |
And are those my throw pillows I made?!? And why on
Earth do you have the television remote!?!?!?
|It may have been zero out, but after spending all day inside the day |
before, the ducks were having "coop fever" and just HAD to get out
and play in the snow.
|Who cares if it is ZERO out..... A duck has gotta do what a duck has gotta do. I'm not exactly sure what |
they had to do, but it would appear it includes sitting in the snow like a bunch of feathered idiots.
|Chocolate chip cookie magic! Bigger, softer, amazingly good!!|
|I had a sample of a chicken treat, so I took it out to see if anyone would like it. After one quick |
peck Grumpy Goldie decided it was all her's and be darned anyone else who tried to get a scrap.
|While I am not a big fan of air that hurts my face, I do love winter |
because I can see who has been wandering through the yard.
I see cat, squirrel, and rabbit prints in this photo.
|The oldest country kid discovered that when he threw a snowball at Heidi the Homestead Hound, |
well she didn't care for it! She proceeded to knock him down, pummel him with her paws, steal
both his gloves and chased him up a small tree. LOL
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
