OMD, has Winter arrived to stay?????? It has been
snowing off and on since Friday. The temperatures have
been between 28-33. The open prairie has a white blanket
covering it. Right now,it is snowing again. We've only
seen Mr. Sunshine one day this past week. So awful gray
I've been outside 30 minutes each day. Wasn't my idea!
Gma made me go and have some fresh air...Actually,I
think Gma wanted the fresh air and just made me go along!
I decided awhile back that I was a normal smooth haired
doxie AND I DO NOT LIKE snow,rain,cold and wind! One
reason Gma chose me was SHE DOESN'T LIKE THESE THINGS
I had Grandma thinking, the first 3 plus years that
I was a Crazy Doxie.....Cuz, I was always wanting
to go play in such Weather! She Faithfully bundled up
and took me in and out....All day long! Dressing and
undressing in all the heavy clothes! Alot of other stuff
wasn't being done...Gma even herniated a disc in her
back while allowing me to HUNT bunnies in the hay yard.
She stepped in a hole under the snow....Anyhoo! The coyotes
ATE all my BUNNIES! I have none to hunt now!
SSSSSoooooooooo I try to pester the barn cats all I can!
Some of them run but most of then blow me off...Can't
even give a doxie a Good Game of Chase! Gpa feeds them so
well...They are hanging up by the patio in the morning and
evening ...just Waiting for the Lunch wagon! I guess, they
are doing the mice thing...Cuz, I can't even sniff out a
batch to play with....
Anyway this weekend Gpa worked on his well. Now knows
what he needs to fix it. Threaded cupplers for the
sucker rods and 40 ft. of new well pipe. Some sections
had rusted through. So couldn't pump water.Also well
is narrowed down to nothing from built up minerals.
Store wasn't open by the time he knew what he needed.
Off to buy the stuff on Monday after all the cattle
are fed. I bet,right about now, Gpa wishes he had
fixed the well over the summer. Ya think???????
Since Friday,He's had to shovel the feed bunks
before he can grain the calves. As if, he needed
another extra chore.....
Gma did Big housecleaning. Some baking and we had
a Huge Flop! Rarely happens! Gma was making soft
sour cream chocolate chip cookies. Oopsie! Gma
picked up the wrong kind of sour cream. Note to
Bakers! Fat-free sour cream does NOT work! The
cookies had 2 troubles. 1st. wouldn't bake out.
Turned oven up and they baked. Looked good!
What we salvaged taste good! They stuck to the
pans and crumbled some.....Who cares? They had
nasty chocolate so I can snag any! How dare
they have cookies I can't share!
