Baked chocolate chip cookies this afternoon as there is no chocolate in the house - heresy ! Added walnuts and coconut, turned out rather well.
Then there was a craving for biting ginger ale, so poured some from the bug I'm making on the windowsill. His 2nd glass was better after googling the original Vernors recipe, added lemon and vanilla. I refilled the jar so in a few days I should have fermented ginger again to make ginger beer. Ordered some Stoney Ginger Beer from the South African store in California, and has horribly disappointed as it's not like I remembered it. So, need to work out my own recipe. Something that burns the back of the throat, and makes a great float.
Anni actually was in her dog house today ! I've never seen her in it before. I realised that she was probably lying next to the garage door or under the horse trailer, so went to call her, and her nose stuck out the dog house. The chickens aren't laying there anymore, so glad that she's using it.
Aflac is a funny boy. The roosters think he's a girl and ride him whenever they see him, so he tends to stay in the front garden under the diningroom windows. I give him his grain there, call him and then give it to him, so he now knows that he'll be fed there. Think in a few days he'll take food from my hand.
Still haven't butchered any roosters or the drake, but am feeding them in the horse trailer. Hubby not impressed as he cleaned it out with the power washer after the bull, and now I have chickens pooping in there. Butchering is a horrible enough job without trying to do it in the rain, so I've just put it on hold.
Dolly needs more groceries. I'm giving her 3rd cutting hay in the lower barn, and the grain while being milked, but don't think she's getting enough for the amount of milk she's producing. The sheep are fat. Daron came back to me, so will be delivering the 3 sheep to him in the next week or so. He needs to find a place to put them first. Didn't shear the ones he wants, they're looking a little ratty, but at least they're warm and sort of water-proof.
