Mazy here reportin' in. The weather hasn't been nice for
a week now. We've had drizzles,cold,gray,cloudy,breezy
and snow flurries ALL weekend. SO NOPE we haven't finished
our leaf chasing project!
We did manage to make our pasta sauce. Now have 19 pts.
No TOMATOES in our freezer! We did dry another batch of
apples. We cleaned,chopped and froze apples. They are
for our muffins,bread and oatmeal cookies. We baked,
all day one day this past week. Gma was testing 3 new
cookies recipes. Looking for a couple new ones to add
to the favorites for Holiday Gift Boxes.
Wednesday, we took everything but the treadmill,washer
and dryer out of the laundry room. Thursday, my human
sis and Gma painted. Gma did the brush work and Melissa
did all the rolling. The rolling is real tough on Gma's
shoulders. Looks really nice but was a very long day
for us Furs! There is no door on the laundry room....
Precious and I had to spend the day with only the
kitchen,entry and sun-room as our turf...We were NOT
Happy about this! You'll Never guess what the wall
color is called???? DILL PICKLE! I kid you not!
Really isn't the color of Gma's pickles.... It is a
bright, light green. All the woodwork is a peach
oil based enamel. Gma didn't want to repaint the woodwork.
Brighter and cheery for winter days....Pulls lots
more light into the 1 large window.
Gma put everything back,except the wall stuff. Since
it was so cold, she's giving it a week before she
hangs the wall stuff. Gpa has to install the new
small fan and light combo. The other one is 30+ years
with 2 speeds burnt out and 1 light socket is bad.
Friday Gma left me to hold down the fort. She went to
have her furry mop redone. Followed by a massage to regroup.
Left the crock-pot filled with roast beef and vegetables
My Nose has been teased by pasta sauce,drying apples,
yummy cookies and apple pies baking. Plus homemade
clam chowder simmering and biscuits baking. Tonight
having yellow rice and grilled chicken breasts.
I know she defrosted an extra piece for Precious and
I to share over the next few days.
Gma brought a few more apples home. She plans to dry
them for human bro. Maybe freeze a few for baking.
We tried the canned apple pie filling yesterday. We
made little pies the size of potpies. Perfect for just
We did the usually weekly cleaning and laundry. We caught
up on snail mail. Made a long list for supply run. Gma
has a toopher for dentist to repair. Barn kitties are
out of food AGAIN! Gma even cooked some meat out of the
freezer for them.....So Monday, I'm on guard duty....
Gma did all my grooming today. I was really good UNTIL
she started brushing my toophers! I was a Naughty Girl!
I was do a Growly! Gma brushed anyway and let me finish
with a mini dental bone. She said behave or she'd brush
Precious and I have been playing the house. Gma and I
did walk to mailbox yesterday. It was only 28,cloudy,
spittin' snow....She said, we needed a little fresh
air. It's only a 1/2 mile to the box. We were both
ready to come inside......
Suppose to be in high 40's with sunshine by Wednesday.
We HOPE so.......We still need 1 long day to chase
and clean up leaves. We're gearing up to start making
jerky. Baking and freezing for the Holidays.
By the weekend, venison beasty season will be open!
They need 2 beasties this year. I can't go along!
Too much noise with the rifles. Too much walking...
Once they have their beasties, we have to de-bone
it. Package the steak. Cut up all the rest for
sausage and jerky making. Can you imagine? Some
of the beasty is for the kitties! Who said, I
wanted to share?????????
Gma,Precious and I took a badly needed NAP late on
Saturday. The Cold weather was really doing Gma
Gotta go, catch ya later. Hugs and Kisses, Mazy

Momma sez she gets tired just readin' all the stuff your Gma is doin, Mazy!!
We just had to pull in our tropical plants... but warmer weather is supposed to come back. Momma sez she don't care, once they're in, they stay in until Spring!
Me and my momma could come help taste test da cookies! BOL!
We LOVE having Cookie Tasters! Gma will only let me taste some.... Cuz so many have chocolate in them. The soft apple oatmeal is a keeper.......Well, I see Gpa is hitting the shower...Off to Bismarck/Mandan for Gma's tooth repair. All the supplies they need. I know the baking supply list is very long..... When you're 50 m from the big stores, you keep a very large pantry. It's like a 7-11.....Have a Great Day!!!!!!!
Of course a new Space Heater for Gpa's shop. Sometimes in very cold weather:
You need those to start tractors and defrost frozen stock tanks when the heaters go out......
Wow, Gma has been very busy in the kitchen...
Wish I could try some of the delicious past sauce and taste some cookies!
Absoluitely understand your feeling...I hate to get my teeth brushed too! But no kisses from mommy if I don't get my teeth clean. So I end up doing it :-(
