A girl that plays hard must crash hard.
I know a lot of folks don’t agree with hunting, but Glen and I do think hunting is a good thing as long as the meat is used. Last Saturday was the start of rifle season for deer. Sunday was the first opportunity for Glen to go and it was very cold and raining. Naturally not one deer made an appearance.
Can’t really tell in the pictures just how miserable it was. Hoping Wednesday turns out much better. Deer sure do look good in our freezer!
Glen and I walked down our driveway so we could properly introduce ourselves to our “naybors”. They were kind of leery of us at first.
We talked to them to get them to come closer to us.
It was when they realized we had carrots that it was determined we weren’t the devil incarnate
This guy was across the road and was telepathically yelling at us that he too likes carrots.
Glen’s mom had knee surgery, so we are dog sitting Tippy again.
He may look happy go lucky in this picture, but that is not the case. Even now that he is used to our routine, I still have to force him to go outside. He and Petey get along fine. The cat on the other hand……Tippy had never been around cats before so we were kind of worried how that would all go down. Lilly was quite upset and absolutely didn’t like Tippy one little bit.
Now she taunts him. She tempts him by acting like she wants to play and then runs to places she knows he can’t fit. He falls for it every time.
In an effort to be more healthy, Glen and I tried our hand at making kale chips. First we went to the store and bought some kale…and were quite surprised at how expensive this hearty leafy green is.
Glen cut the stem off and chopped the kale into about 1 inch pieces and put it in a bowl with some olive oil.
Then we laid it out on a cookie sheet and seasoned it with some salt and chipotle chili pepper. However, after I tasted our first batch, (so spicy), the other half was seasoned with salt and smoked paprika. We baked it at 275 degrees for 20 minutes.
Glen and I both thought these were very tasty and will be making them again.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
