I was thinking I might go to town today to do my weekly shopping and perhaps go to Target for the first time in well over a year to look for shelf organizing things. But then it started to rain and then Mr. Moon took my car to town to buy paint and I got into repotting a few plants and planting a few things and the day just went by and I stayed right here, right here in Lloyd.
On rainy days the chickens spend a lot of time on my kitchen porch. They aren't interested in making dirt baths and lounging if it's wet out and they know that treats often come out of that door and so that's where they gather and chat and hope for manna to fall.
I watched Fancy Pants pecking the gnats off one of the hens for awhile. I do not know whether she enjoyed it, appreciated it, or just tolerated it.
Here's what I used today to make my bias tape.
Actually, none of my stuff really worked very well and my bias binding is going to be pretty darn wonky.
I've also made a sauce for lasagna with yellow squash, zucchini, onions, mushrooms, peppers, chopped tomatoes, rainbow chard and spinach. It's been simmering for hours and I hope it's good. I grew such beautiful rainbow chard this year and I have absolutely no idea what to do with it except to put it in salads and cook it with my other greens. If any of you have great ideas in that regard, let me know. I have a loaf of sourdough in the oven that I started yesterday afternoon with plenty of oat bran and whole wheat in it. Sounds like a fine supper to me.
Things must change. They must.
