Another Artic Blast is Forecast for this Weekend

Hopefully this blast will not be as cold or last as long.
The last one gave us 1-2 inches of ice in all the animal pools and waterers.
It also froze our beloved rooster when the power went out.

Rest In Peace Sunny.
You are greatly missed.

More Candied Citrus Fun!

I used my tiny cookie cutters
to make them more interesting.
Sure wish you could taste them!


Flying Hercules!

Meet Hercules

Meet Hercules Compleanno Sinatra
-So named because he is strong and showed up on my birthday "singing"!

Birthday Surprise

This little guy came onto the porch and climbed the door-
swung from the farm bell and wanted in!

Woodpecker on the Telephone Pole

Orange Sugar

I made a huge batch of candied citrus peels and took the leftover syrup- cooked it to softball stage and made orange flavored sugar with it.. Perfect addition to morning tea, or crushed and stirred into oatmeal for a new take on ho-hum morning staples.

Candied Orange Peel

I add a little cinnamon and cloves to the mix
to add some bass notes to the flavor!
