Alittle Wildlife

The first 3 were taken on Thurs. the 14th but others were this a.m..  All out of my bay window in front room.  The deer and her twins have been coming out in the mornings across the road.  The babies went by the road today but momma went down the dirt road after awhile and then followed.

Teigan of course in the first picture. 

This a.m. I saw this deer with her 2 babies come out across the road.  We had a small garden there but mowed it down and the grass is very tender coming up.

The rockers we purchased them both on the same day from our favorite little shop.  The metal one Teigan loves to sit on outside (when she sits). And the wooden is inside.  For Christmas I also got her an old hand made one that she has at her house.

Has Been Awhile!

My posting has been lousy lately.

Don't know why in April and May but June has been extremely busy for me.

My hubby was on a ladder back on June 5th and it broke and down he came.  He broke his left leg in 2 spots below the knee. Big and little bone and one bone came out and went back in.  He has a plate and screws and can not bear weight on it for at least 3 months if not 4.  Will see.  He had a check up last week and x-rays and all is looking good. Healing good too.  He has a boot and walker.  So in evenings or days I am off we take the boot off and he lays with it off for a few hours and we clean the wound.

A big change because he normally did the grocery shopping and supper. We have some sheep, few cows, chickens and ducks so I help some with them.  Son does a lot of it, before and after his job.  The dogs, cats, and rabbit are at our house along with some of the sheep.  The garden bit the dust already. :( Was really hoping for a good canning season. I did always help here and there outside but sure is different when you have it all.

We were in the middle of cleaning sheds and such so crap is sitting out. Inside redoing some stuff.  But it will wait.  It could of been a lot worse so I am very thankful to the Lord that it is his leg that should heal.

We did get our house sided (was taking guttering down when ladder broke) and new guttering is to get put on tom..

I hate to wish my life away but Sept./Oct. can't come fast enough!!!!

Mix together the ingredients.  Serve with grilled or roasted beef or spread on bread for sandwiches made of beef, chicken, turkey or pork.

 Saw this in the paper today.  Will have to try it for my husband---I think he will like it.

Asparagus Bundles

We made these for Easter and everybody loved them.  I got the recipe off of a Trisha Yearwood show.
Asparagus is starting to come up here good now so hope we get to make several more.

2 pounds fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
12 slices bacon
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Divide asparagus spears into 12 bundles.  Carefully wrap 1 piece of bacon around each bundle, starting about 1/2 " from the bottom of the tips.  Secure bacon wrapped spears with a toothpick.  Lay the bundles in a low sided casserole dish.

In a medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter, soy sauce, garlic salt and pepper.  Bring the mixture to a boil.  Pour the hot sugar mixture over the asparagus bundles.  Put into the oven and roast until the spears have begun to wilt and the bacon looks fully cooked.  About 25 minutes.  Remove toothpicks.

Depending on the size of spears for the time.

Few more miscellaneous

Allens birthday was March 20th.  He enjoys deer hunting, fishing, we have some sheep and then gardening.  Wish they would of had colorful veggies but...  I also said if they could get a little blonde girl on it but they weren't sure how to do it.

On Good Friday Grandpa and Teigan planted jelly beans to come up on Easter.  I don't have a picture of it but we put small individual bags on popsicle sticks for Easter Day.  Only about 12 and put them where the jelly beans were planted.

Teigan wanted milk yesterday afternoon.  She uses straws often but this was a first and she thought it was hilarious--needless to say the straw went bye bye.
