Cookies, pool, and dog hair…

My oatmeal raisin cookies are WONDERFUL.  I’m not bragging on my kitchen skills, I’m bragging on the recipe (it’s not mine either).  I can never make sheet cookies that turn out well.  I usually blame the oven, hee! hee!  It’s propane, and I always have to cook them longer than the recipe calls for, but not too long to where they turn hard and crunchy.  These are just right!  Plus it made enough to freeze some to have for wheat harvest when we have to pack dinners. 

Dh worked his tail off on the pool getting put together and filled.  He’s striving to have it up and running by the time his Dad and Stepmom get here next weekend.  We had the coolest night so far this month last night which is pretty standard when you’re trying to warm pool water .     I suppose it will be warm soon enough.

I’m not entirely sure we won’t have hairless dogs by the end of this shedding season.  I vacuumed our family room last night.  Good grief!  Dh and I had to unclog the hoses and by the time we were done we had recreated another dog with all the dog hair we pulled out of the vacuum hoses.  Our cattledog “blows” her fur twice a year meaning it literally falls out in clumps.  Koal is just an all around shedder.  He gets nervous he sheds, he eats he sheds, he sleeps he sheds.  Love ’em, but hate the dog hair.  I could easily stand to vacuum once a day if I had the time.

Tonight I’m trying a new recipe!  Yummy Pinto Beans from www.thefamilyhomestead.com

Have a great Wednesday!

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
