Fence from the road.
Same fence but from the other side of the fence in the field
☀ ☁ ☀ ☁This morning it was 30 degrees, very still and sunny with some clouds. Went to the post office first and dropped another Netlix down the mail slot. Then continued around the Farm Loop.
No cows today out in the field by the road at Farmer Bill's farm. I saw them all up the hill in another field.
Once back to town I took a loop around the ball park loop and then headed home.
I saw a lady that lives 2 tenths of a mile from the ball park get in her truck and DRIVE to the ball park, walk twice around the loop which is a 1/2 mile, then get back in her truck and drive home!! That is just unbelievable to me!!
Today's walk was 5.3 miles.
☁ ☁ ☀ ☁Yesterday afternoon we put up our Christmas tree. We got an artificial one this year and got one that fit perfectly in the front bay window. It doesn't have the tinsel on it yet. I know most people don't use tinsel anymore but I think the tree is missing something without it.
- Cream 3/4 cup of butter and 2 cups sugar.
- Beat in 4 eggs
- Add 3/4 cup honey
- 4 cups Rye flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
Add to mixture alternating with 1 cup buttermilk.
No buttermilk? A substitute is 1 tablespoon lemon juice in cup filled rest of the way with milk.
Pour into 2 greased loaf pans.
Bake one hour at 350 degrees.
I made some the other week but the middles didn't bake enough. This time I made 4 smaller loaves and still kept them in the oven the full hour and they came out fine.
I finished knitting 4 more scarves which brings the number up to 13 of them and I'm working on number 14 now. I think I will have just enough for my project which I'll be able to tell you about by the end of the week. : )
Hope you found happiness scattered throughout your day.
