September 14, 2011. October 30, 2012. Quite the little male, don’t you think? We support his malehood, given that Missy is 5X his size. He has to work hard to stay on top. And I mean that literally. For reference, the lower pillow is where I sit. Daughter C sits on the upper one. Not
I need to work on the color balance of this photo because the white sweet potatoes were a little whiter than they appear here. The vegan side dish with tonight’s oven fried chicken. Pulled the sweet taters out of the garden about 10 days ago. Washed them off. Pare boiled them for about 20 minutes.
The view from my desk. Like an 8th grade perspective drawing. The drapes have been steamed. The lamp globes rinsed in hot water. The fan blades dusted as best I could. Still need to Windex the TV. Whoever came up with the concept of a non-flat ceiling was a freaking moron. Fall Cleaning.
21-0.I do believe we are getting the snot kicked out of us. College football is the last best diversion. Oh. Man. A four man rush and Russel is creamed. Well, it’s just football.
“I should have asked [Mr. Big Food] to help me roll them thinner,” she said. And then, after we’d all had one, she said, “I should have made the whole recipe.” I say, “Live & Learn & Bake” Recipe here. We had a great jambalaya tonight. Recipe soon. I promise.
National Pit Bull Awareness Day!
I should have taken some photos while in S’vegas today but I didn’t. So this one at AR-15 will have to suffice: Places and People all over Starkvegas are sporting “We Believe 8-0” signs. For the Record, Dudes & Dudettes, I’m hoping we win. But Hoping and Believing isn’t going to change the fact that
Dear Reader(s),Yesterday’s post about leaving the dogs at home when we take the dogs for a walk received a delightfully irrelevant comment about raw dog feed and a link to a dog food brand. Thankfully, except for suek’s comments sent from her work computer, the blog doesn’t get much spam– and what it does get
I have been delinquent in posting recipes. We’ve had some delightful food lately. I especially liked “Delightful Chicken.” It’s a keeper. The dressing for the 3-bean salad–and the salad itself– was off the hook. Mr. Big Food pulled it out of the fridge and we nibbled on it as he made tonight’s supper of homemade
Recharging He’s been walking to the Court House and back with Miss M– about 2.4 miles round trip– the past few mornings. And then he’s been walking around the property with Miss M, Missy, & I later in the afternoons. He’s tired. Missy, on the other hand, keeps going and going and going… . Just
let’s leave the dogs at home.” Constructive thought from Miss M. Man. Talk about not minding your manners… ! I appreciate that the woods must be an olfactory smorgasbord for them, and that they are not perfect. But even by their standards they were misbehaved– wild & crazy, even. I blame the moon.

today was I for not properly documenting Miss M’s gradual Transition from a City Mouse to a Country Mouse Adventures here on the Farm in Rural Mississippi. She was right to do so. In my defense, those vegan bonbons we’ve been enjoying are right filling! This afternoon, we paused our Soap Operas and prepared to
to our Crappy Old Friend, A. Leland– the Hume dude! A. Leland is unintelligible sometimes.
However, after Sandy crosses Jamaica and Cuba, things get really interesting — and dangerous — because the atmospheric setup is uniquely conducive for Sandy to become a bizarre and, possibly, extremely destructive hybrid storm, injecting its tropical moisture, warm core, and low barometric pressure into a dynamic atmospheric situation involving a diving upper-level trough, driven
Unfortunately right now our culture seems interested in finding out whatever we can, instead of using discretion about what’s relevant and what’s not, and instead of thinking about whether the enormous pain we are about to inflict on the individuals involved (including innocent family members) is really worth it. Politicians are not the Kardashians. Their
I understand– and am sympathetic– when one of my “written by a person with a life” go-to blogs goes silent for a while. Hope you do–are–too!
Today Mr. Big Food and I traveled to Oxfordtown and TSUN.* Miss M and Mike joined us. There was an EVENT on campus. We were not there for the EVENT, and that’s what I told the security guard who was guarding Visitor Parking Street, but he let us park in EVENT PARKING anyway. As per usual
That’s what Miss M. says she’s going to call her blog! Sorry. The photo seems a bit out of focus but I don’t have time to play with it– I’m we’re cleaning up the patio gardens.
