Something has shifted here though I can’t say just what. It’s not fall by any stretch of the imagination, but I wonder if we are coming out of the you-might-die-if-you-don’t-carefully-monitor-your-sweat-output-and-water-intake-with-every-second-of-your-day season, also known as summer. And just when I was getting used to it…
In other exciting news: the long-awaited fence is going up! Chickens in, cows out is the idea, I believe. Though beyond saying there were a few intense days of t-post pounding (I did one… out of 100), a whole bunch of concrete, and some really big logs awaiting their destination; I know very little about the actual construction of said fence. I think all parties involved will be happier if we keep it that way.
What I do know about is these pancakes. I make them about twice per week and we eat at least a stick of butter on them… probably more like a stick and a half. They are huge and fluffy and made with 100% rye flour and some say "the best pancakes ever". I’ve got a secret, ladies… all you’ve got to do is take away grains for months on end and anything you pop out of the "baked good" category will be the best thing ever. Trust me.
Because big and little men need all the carbs they can get when they’re cutting firewood. I’ve always wanted a woodpile and just thinking about cozying up around the wood stove with a pot of soup bubbling away makes me smile.
Ya know who I want to make soup out of? That guy, right there. The guy who screams at the top of his lungs from his perch right next to our cabin at 4 a.m. The one who wakes my baby up every afternoon during her nap. The one that is not-so-affectionately named after a politician that shall go unnamed. Yep, that guy’s gonna’ be tasty.
Besides plotting the (very tasty and nutritious) demise of said rooster, we have been reading when we can spare a minute. I am planning the fall garden during independent school time. We’re also reading through this history book which is a fan favorite around here in the six and under crowd.
And those jars there – they are my daily dance partner, all two dozen of them. They once came filled with milk or perhaps they made the morning coffee or acted as someone’s water glass for the day. At the end of the day (snort, three days is more like it) they all get washed. From counter to sink to hand to dishrag and back to counter again. If I could just find a place for all of these jars it would be a beautiful thing we’ve got going on.
And with that I think my partner is looking for another twirl around the dance floor…
