with plenty of Sunday to hang out in the wintry sun all day.
It is a beautiful old farm. It was a very reasonable price of six dollars a bale. Though I said to John, last year I would have been appalled at buying hay at six dollars a bale and today I think it is a good price. Everything is relative to something else.
Good morning. Yesterday I made mint and chocolate ice cream with my very own mint essence. To make the essence I packed a jar with mint from the neighbours that has been in her garden so long it has no name, covered it with everclear (you can use a good vodka too) and left it for a few months. Strained, it is very minty and bright green. Now we are wondering what else to use it with. Maybe I should add some to yesterdays yoghurt, well maybe not!!
I wish you all a fun and safe New Year’s Eve. We will be in bed early as usual as Daisy has no respect for sore heads or tired milkers. So I do not mind at all if you have an extra glass for me. And speaking of Daisy, after beginning the process to see if she has mastitis or not, she turned around yesterday morning and gave 5 pounds more milk than usual. So whatever is bothering her is not accelerating at all. I am still going to have her milk tested though, just to be sure. Something is not right.
Have a lovely day and a Happy New Year. See you next year. Just before dawn as usual.
