Everyone loves their buckets of fresh food except Bobby Blanc who does not like celery – fancy having a fussy calf. I store a few buckets full in the house, so they do not freeze solid overnight, these are Daisy’s milking treats for a couple of days. Until The Matriarch comes out with another delivery.
Later, after getting the idea from my father, I made labneh into little balls, carefully packed them in jars, covered them with olive oil, added rosemary and garlic and lids and popped the jars into the fridge for next Friday. These will not be shared with the looters.
Good morning everyone. We are cooling down today. It is 16F (-8C) right now but will drop to 7F (-14C) overnight. And then colder again the next day. The cold itself is manageable but whether Daisy’s milking pump will work in the cold always foremost in my mind. It is interesting how carrying the pump to and fro from the barn has become normal. Between milkings, it lives on the floor in the dining room along with the pulsator and the hoses, in the warm and out of the way of general traffic. No-one even bats an eyelid anymore.
Have a wonderful day. Find lots of loveliness and kindness.
