Wednesday Around The Homestead
Have been enjoying the day as tomorrow brings back the 90F weather. I am so not a summer person. Give me snow, cold winter winds and a nice warm fire and a mug of tea or cocoa any day. I love being outside in the snow. Its beautiful and so quiet and peaceful. I can always bundle up but I think there would be a problem if I went naked to try to cool off in these hot humid days! But anyhoo I did a little gardening. Got some beautiful squash from one garden that will be tomorrows supper. I gave Rusty and Kuma baths. We took our trash to the dump and let them both ride and believe me they needed those baths just so they would smell better! I cleaned off the front porch and did a little rearranging. Set out some moon flowers and purple sage that a friend gave me. Got the kitchen and back porch cleaned and swept. Folded and put away laundry, cleaned the rabbit cages, and the duck swimming pools. The baby bunnies are so cute! Time for them to find new homes. One I call Mr. Bean as he is the runt and is long and slim. I want to keep him but will let him go because I really don't need any more rabbits at the moment.
Grilled baby back ribs, homemade coleslaw, sauteed squash and potatoes, homemade mac n cheese and biscuits was supper tonight followed by strawberry shortcake made with strawberries from the homestead. Thank you Pam for the biscuit recipe. I also made a batch of cookies and will post the recipe tomorrow. I found the recipe on a blog and can't remember which one so will try to find it tonight. They are sooooo good! Life here on the homestead keeps me busy but its a good busy and I am blessed to love and enjoy every minute.
