I awoke with energy and well rested, breakfast was egg, onion and some canned mushrooms, with spices, it was yummy, Dh added in two toast with raspberry jam, I had apple cider vinegar/honey tea and hubby had hot chocolate.
Don’t the sprouts look wonderful, sweet, crunchy and fresh!
The morning was all about work, work and more work with the horse’s and the house, we shoveled out a pathway to my one big clothes line, I want to be able to start hanging more things out now a day’s, still will need to dry hubbies work cloths and my good cloths, but the rest of the house stuff, the critter bedding etc can all be line dried, it will save me another 50 plus to slow down using the dryer.
Lunch was the leftover stirfry, I put about two to three cups of light white broth into a pot, added in the leftover stirfry and then about a cup of whole milk, and heated it up till just simmering, then I thickened it with cornstarch.. and it was our lunch, yum..
The afternoon passed in a blur of warm sunshine, laundry, housework and farm work, we are working to pull back another inch or two of bedding/manure off the fence line by the feeder area, each pull back creates a pile, each pile gets loaded into the sled and hauled to a garden area, and dumped, each day that sun warms the area just enough that we can pull off another inch or so down the line.. we really need to do this because between the snow and the bedding/manure pack that poor fence is getting lower and lower, this will help the fence come back up in size, and its a good workout each day to get one more pile done and moved for garden use.
Supper is planned, we are having herbed and parm breaded steak with rice and purple cabbage salad.
Dessert is some canned peaches in their lovely juice.. Life is good.. Now if I could just climb over the eight to ten plus foot banks of snow to get in to look at getting some taps, but given its still so cold, I don’t think I am missing my run yet but I do want to get to it this week, is the sap running in your area yet or are you on “ice” like I am?
