Big ol trees make big ol leaves…
A good pie crust is not an easy thing.Kid has now also learned to make pie crust...
Twice I got chicks at the very end of April or early May thinking they would start kicking out eggs about the time the older girls moulted and quit laying, then lay through the winter. Only one ever did. Every chick I've gotten in early June has laid through their first winter but of course they didn't start until most of the older girls had quit for the winter.One lonely egg in the basket. My May chicks are grown up but the days are short.
While having plenty of wood I've been using the garage wood stove also. Yesterday while barely running it all day, I decided to use it to cook (calf fries) on. I thought the boys would think it was neat. I forgot how long it takes a cook stove to go from cold to boiling a pot of oil.I turned on the AC last night, it was 76F degrees in the house
Think I've gotten most the groceries we need for Thanksgiving, really not any extra effort for me, and saves my mom 2+ hours of driving.
Definitely "nowhere land" for sure. There are two small restaurants and two gas stations within about 10 minutes, and a small grocery store about 30 minutes away. Otherwise, it is an hour or an hour and a half. Or to have everything, it is two hours. Really makes you plan out your town trips, and use the freezer. Very different from what we had, though we were so lucky to have our animals at home.Wow, they moved to "nowhere land". I'm spoiled with plenty of shopping 7 & 15 miles in either direction. If I want the big name stores, malls, etc, that's about 40 miles. I rarely go there 🤣yet, I live on a road that looks rural enough 👍. Maybe that's why real estate assessments jump dramatically. 🤫
I'm an hour and a half to go grab a pack of smokes and hate that I'm to close to neighbors. I loved the old rental place. On a dead end dirt road. Here it's 8 miles to a paved road and a lot of people right next to me but after a mile you can go the next 8 in certain directions with only 0-3 houses depending on which route you take.Definitely "nowhere land" for sure. There are two small restaurants and two gas stations within about 10 minutes
