Here is lovely miss Victoria. She is six months old now and has two teeth. Her hair looks dark brown but in the sunlight it's auburn. Her eyes are a more clear blue than the picture shows. She's a little beauty!
I already told you that I put 15 gravenstein apple pies in the freezer. I also canned applesauce and in this picture is apple butter. It's sort of an old fashioned preserve that I used to make a lot of when I still had family at home. There's no way to explain the flavor except to say it's sweet, spicy and I like it on toast, english muffins and hotcakes. I'm wondering what it would be like warmed a bit and spooned over vanilla ice cream~~~~Kinda like apple pie without the crust, maybe.
I've used all the apples I plan to, so when this nice buck came to clean up the apples off the lawn I took his picture. He wasn't a bit afraid of me, but I stayed on my deck. Rutting season is here and those guys know how to use those antlers and hoofs. If his doe's were nearby I could be in trouble if I got too close to them.
Ok! I know this isn't the sort of thing I usually post, but I think it's funny. Well actually it would be a lot funnier if it wasn't so darn true! And do you know that my little grandma could tuck hers into her waistband in her older years. It was handy I suppose, but it did look odd to see two little bumps down by her belly button.
I can't remember where I found this. I hope it wasn't from someone's blog!
God bless and keep you all and please remember our troops and our country's leaders in your prayers.|
