HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY TO ALL..........
Hi there pals. Can you believe it is mid-March already?
We've done the dreaded time change? Now it isn't dark until
after 8 p.m. way up north. Supper of course has been messed
with too....Gma and Gpa are lucky to be eating by 8ish. This
of course, means my venison or other meatz nibbles are later
too...Gma and I can't get to sleep at night. We also, can't
start our day as early as Gpa. Sure glad, he doesn't need
Gma to do his breakfast!
Saint Patrick's Day is just about here. I hope, whatever
Gma makes that day has my name on it too. Easter isn't
too far away. Lucky for me, Easter will be here. I won't
be left alone for the day. I will have an Easter dinner
too! We hide plastic eggs with goodies for the grand kids.
Last time, they hid eggs filled with my own treats for
me to sniff out. OMD,I had the best time!So much FUN!
Gma planned the Easter menu last night after finding out
she was the COOK for the day. We will sit and play games
through the afternoon. We aren't having Ham because,Jaxcen
the grandson is confirmed on April 13th. His Mom is making
a ham dinner after church for both sides of the furmily.
So with all those extra peeps,I'll have to stay home.
Human-bro will be back to ND for the weekend. He is Jaxcen's
Godfather. The next day, Gma and Gpa have been married
40 years. The kids are taking them to the capitol city
for supper. By then we are calving. So they are hoping,
no problems with weather or cattle. Gma would be very
disappointed, if she had to stay home and cook her own
Gma is busy baking for Jaxcen's special day and for Easter
too! Also to fill grandkids and Gma's freezers with goodies.
Once we can work outside, Gma doesn't have much time for
the big baking. Believe it or not,both houses have eaten
all the other stuff. In fact we made 3 kinds of cookies
this week. Had to fill Gpa's jars on the counter.
Gpa redid Great-Grandma's Lefse board with a new pastry
cloth today. Gpa wants lefse for Easter and just any old
day. Gma hasn't made lefse in years, but she is going to
give it a whirl. A tiny package in the store is over $6.
Do you pals know, lefse?(It's a flat round potato bread
and it's Norwegian) She is planning on apple and lemon
pies for Easter. She promised Gpa some homemade caramel
rolls. She made him huge man's sized biscuits,double
batch and froze half. Gma had 1 and he ate the other 11.
I think, Gpa is as SPOILED as I am!!!! If you go to
AllRecipes.com you can type lefse in and see pictures.
Gma finally made it to the dreaded big mess in the
basement. Gpa hauled all the old boxes to the garbage
building and they came today. She managed 1/2 of the
project. Dryer pipes came apart,blew fuzzy,dusty
bunnies and other gremlins ALL over the place. Just
plain nasty! Cobwebs up in the ceiling and around
all the furnace pipes. She was a major Piggy, when
she hit the shower!Precious ran down to snoop but
I stayed on the main floor. I knew she was on a
mission! OMD, when that happens,just stay out of
It was only 2 when I woke up this morning. It did
make 30. I've been outside a little more but still
can't stay long. We need the snow to melt and go away!
Gma and I are so tired of winter! Well pals, time for
me to eat. Gma fixed 5 stuffies this week.....
so much FUN to have new squeakers in some of my
Catch ya later,Mazy

The apple pie will be made with the filling we canned last fall. That worked out real well. everyone liked it when we did for other holidays. We gave daughter 1/2 of the jars.
