Yesterday I was feeling either a little bit adventurous, or a little bored, (maybe both) but I decided that the day had come to go into our woods to have a closer look at something...For 3 years I have been looking at what appears to be an old cow trough upside down in our woods. I cleared the weeds away from it and had Carl help me turn it over. It's fully intact and very heavy--We 'think' it's made of cast iron. But thankfully there was no dead-body or anything living underneath. Carl really feels that it should go right to the dump. He's probably right (don't tell him I said that). But I think it's a sort of 'treasure find' and I think I'd like to put it on the backside of our barn and of plant flowers or something inside--What do you think it could be used for?
With that excursion done, the next one was the New Years meal of black-eyed peas. I really enjoyed reading your comments yesterday about your meal traditions for New Years--THANKS for sharing them! Our 'good luck' meal which was cooked with ham and a few vegetables in the crock pot, and served on top of homemade cornbread, turned out pretty well. I'm all ready to face 2011 now and I hope you are too!
Rudi enjoyed the day as well.
Do you have any idea how many things
there are to smell, eat and roll on in the damp woods? She does.
