A new week and its almost Easter!
I have gone off my food again, but I am okay just don't want to eat.
Spring is just around the corner, which means that the Stinkhorn Mushrooms will be back soon Yeaaahh!
But I am not wishing my time away, I have lots to look forward to in the mean time.
Finding the things buried in the snow will be first, seeing what all this is about "flowers" is next, Ash says they are beautiful creations of wonder, and each one is a miracle. He tells me Mum buried lots of things last year and they will all come up and be miracles. Seems odd to me, when I bury my things (and any one elses) they come up dirty. What I may do is go out and dig them up so I can see what he is talking about, no point waiting for these thing's. Murph said Flour it is something used to make bread, treats and cakes, and there is a special one called "Cauli" that is good with cheese sauce. So I don't know who is telling the truth but I will let you know what I think when it all happens. That is unless the treats are the same as last time, in which case you will have to wait till they have been buried for a few weeks before I can bite them. That's a point if I dig these things up, that Mum buried maybe they are the treats Mum made and she is softening them up, in which case I had best leave them a few more months.............I need to think this over some more.
So that is Spring, then its summer I am told it gets warm, so I am not keen on that. I have a fur coat so I think that will be a problem for me, the boys go down the basement I am told where its cool. As some of you know I don't go down there EVER and will have to find some where else to go. However I am looking forward to going for long walks in different smells, oh sorry I mean different places.
Then of course it will be Stink horn season which is where we started.
What did we do this weekend Dad worked some of it. Mum left the house again to go to work our plan did not work at all.
On Sunday Dad took me for a long walk, but he made us come back when it got exciting, "TRACKS" big footed going down into the dense trees, I was a little afraid it may be the animal with the scarf and no teeth, but thought it worth looking at a distance, but Dad said "no" we must leave it and go back. I don't think he liked the scarf either! We came back and played a while then waited for Mum but its a long wait as she is not back till its very dark. Now I am not one to complain but between us Dad dropped the ball this weekend. He did not make my ice-creams............. I am not sure if I should report this or not, but Mum got back asked and he said some thing that made her roll her eyes. Good job she had a special treat hidden in the drawer, I know she has made me some now so tonight is Ice-cream night ...... I wonder if you could make them with essence of "stink -horn"
now that would be something all the ice cream taste with that wonderful smell Ahhhhhhh perfick!
No Mum I am sticking with "Perfick" not Perfect.
Take good care everyone
I send my woofs

Perfick... the word used by Pa Larkin in the blissful book series "The Darling Buds Of May" by H.E.Bates.
It became part of the vernacular... and the series was a dream to read.. and perfick as the English TV series.
Ice cream !!! This is a recipe for doggie Frosty Paws ..
1 container fat free plain yoghurt (the very large size)
1 large jar baby food bananas (or peach, any flavour really)
2 tbs honey
2 tbs peanut butter
Put in a blender and mix. Then pour in to plastic ice cube trays and freeze. When they are frozen, pop them out and store in freezer bags.
Yes Mum is English and watched the TV series over in England and again over here with her husband. They are so gentle and a delightful compliment to the book.
Mum is not to sure how many people would understand the word if she did not explain, but she will probably slip a few more in from time to time LOL
I love my FP and Mum uses a very similar recipe YUMMMMYYY
Almost time now I get so excited, once that freezer door opens!
Thanks for the comment and its good to hear from you.
I am English too. Married a lovely American gent in Jan 2005 and now live in Oklahoma. Despite having travelled and lived abroad alot .. I am dreadfully homesick still.
I was able to go Home for 3 weeks in March 2011.. and sadly it will be a while before I can again.
The books which I read in my 20's.. and the series on the TV were wonderful. The feelgood factor.. a little escapism.. good for the soul !
Blessed Be my friend
