the carpet shampooed, a new rug, new lamp, new side table, and new bar stools. :( I have no idea what that dirty looking spot is behind the chair. Looks like someone dropped a cup of coffee.
What we really really need is new carpeting. Wouldn't that be pretty! Want, want, want, says Poppy. If only I could win the lottery! :)
Clean the carpet is on my to do list for Monday!
Friends, wonder why I can't make biscuits. Seriously.
Mama used to make biscuits from scratch every day. She had one of those wooden dough bowls.
She would sift a little pile of flour into the bowl and with her finger tips, dip out a measure of shortening and while working the shortening into the flour, still using her fingers, she added milk and worked the mixture into a soft dough.
Mama then pinched off a section at a time and gently rolled it between her hands to form a small biscuit. When all the biscuits were on her old black bread pan, she made a fist and with the backs of her fingers, pressed the biscuits down then baked them.
Mama, back in the 40's. Wonder if she had biscuits in the oven at the time.
Those very flat biscuits in the picture, I'm ashamed to admit, were made by me for supper last night. Oh the biscuits tasted good, Poppy even said so, but they were supposed to rise more. I've never been able to make good biscuits.
"a pitiful looking selfie of me and a sweet little chick." :) Three of the little chicks like to be held. Once we moved them to the big chicken lot, the mama hen said, "I'm done with you bitties"!
It was cold out first thing this morning. My hands were as cold as they look too. I had taken off my gloves and dipped ice out of the goat's water. Actually, it was 29 degrees, which isn't bad, but after several mild days, 29 felt pretty cold.
Is the new chair too loud?
Talk to you soon!
