Good thing I didn't boldly announce "MY NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION IS TO POST SOMETHING ON MY BLOG EVERY SINGLE DAY!" That was actually a thought, you know. :)
Let me begin with old sweetie pie. Can you tell he is asking, "MAMA, HOW LONG BEFORE SUPPER'S DONE"?
We talk to each other that way; it's those eyes! Wednesday was Eli's birthday. He turned seven years old. Seems like just yesterday we brought that sweet little ball of fur home...
His first visit to the vet, Dr. Davis said to me, "YOU WON'T BE CARRYING HIM AROUND IN YOUR ARMS VERY LONG", and he was right. Eli grew really big, really fast!
and has carried the same old Teddy Bear around for seven years...
and kept Teddy with him while on the job. Just kidding. Eli never worked a day in his life. He does like being with the goats but is probably saying, "YOU GOATS BETTER LEAVE MY TEDDY BEAR ALONE!"
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELI!
Well, here it is the middle of January and we still have half an acre of fall leaves to rake, but not to worry, Poppy stopped by Ace Hardware...
and brought me a brand new metal rake and new wheelbarrow. I have just about worked the wheels off my pretty pink wheelbarrow, no kidding, so it will be used for light duty now. Plus, I just didn't like that new wide plastic rake, purchased a few weeks ago. I am not a plastic person...give me heavy duty metal, any time! :)
Back in 1987 when we moved in our little log cabin, I vowed to do away with all plastic. We bought every piece of granite ware we could find. I still love, and use my old granite ware...
well, not so much those old slop jars on the top shelf. Sorry about the pitifully stocked pantry shelves. Had to spread things out to look like I spent lots of time canning last summer. :)
I've used the small blue roasting pan many many times. It is perfect for cooking turkey breast and there's a large one on the pantry shelf that's good for ham or whole turkey. Both are old granite ware found at flea markets. How did I get off on all this anyway?
Guess I'll get back to work. Poppy worked at Food Lion this morning, giving me a break to get a little housework done....He gets off at 1:00! Better go!
I'll be around to visit and catch up. Absolutely can't believe I have a few new followers. Thank you so much! Hey, you just can't beat blogging friends.
