Just a "regular" -12 F degrees on the outside thermometer here this am. Don't know what the wind chill is, and I would rather not know.
The bushes and trees are frozen
The tractor is frozen, even though it was plugged in all night.
Got a pipe that's frozen, even though we had heat on it.
(Plumber is on his way.)
I am frozen, even though I have 4 layers of clothes on and a cup of hot chocolate in my hand.
Its so cold outside the mailbox door broke in half.
Cows are fine, birds are eating all my sunflower seeds and suet and my geranium is blooming.
Bean soup for supper.
Dreaming about planting squash, beans and melons.
Murray McMurray catalog is on the way. (Lord, give me strength and self control)
Searching for Appleyard ducks to be my "weapons of mass snail destruction" but can't seem to find any.
For all of you folks who asked me to share my secret, yummy corn bread recipe, here it is:
Follow the complete, exact instructions on the back of the box.
Add 2 tablespoons of local honey and use only fresh eggs and the taste will amaze you.
Because of my muffins there is a rumor going around town that I am a fabulous cook. I was utterly shocked when I heard it!
Now, everyone is asking me to bring my corn bread muffins to every event I attend. Even the church ladies want me to make 10 dozen for their bake sale.
I hate rumors. Little do they know that the smoke alarms in my home get a screaming workout twice a week and...
We just had to replace one of the fire extinguishers 2 weeks ago because of one of my cooking adventures.
But the muffin recipe is simple, usually fire-less and quick to do.
