A New Day..................................



The girls, free from "slobbers" today, pining for pasture, not happenin' and free from burrs!



The results from a local Farmer's Market Thursday. Fresh breads, fresh organic leg of lamb, fresh fruits and veggies. The spring onion are almost too beautiful to eat. We know what dinner will be tonight!



And I thought I'd show this. These are not clouds as such, but rather steam coming off of Lake Michigan which about 40 miles east from us. We woke up to a crisp Autumn like morning, cool air and a now heated large lake. Usually you don't see this until mid-winter. It stretched the length of the horizon. I find it fascinating.

I know, I know........I have never seen such beautiful spring onions before. We've already tapped into the bread.......Cannot wait to taste this meal when it's done. The organic lamb, I have such high hopes for, LOL!

Love the picture of the steam coming off Lake Michigan. Your dinner sounds like it is going to be delicious. Glad the girls are slobber free again.

I've never seen steam come off the lakes until Winter.. WOW !! (I was born and raised in MI about 10 miles from Lake Huron)

Callie - You deserve a great dinner after dealing with slobbers and burrs! Lake Michigan is such a cool body of water - almost like an ocean - when I grew up alongside it in Illinois, I used to love it when the waves would freeze in peaks during the winter. That photo of the steam is really great.

I got the slobbers just looking at that beautiful produce! YUM-MMY!! Don't you just love the farmers market?!

A trip to England, I can't wait to see the pictures and hear all about it. Will be nice for Stephen to see family and familiar places. Yes, I'm with you on the preparation, it takes FOREVER!

Glad the girls are doing good. Lil' Bud was slobbering a little bit the other day and I kept wiping his mouth. Never heard of horses getting it around here and he was over whatever it was in a couple days so I don't know if it was slobbers or not. He's fine now.

The picture of the steam coming off Lake Michigan is very interesting! I thought it was a bog storm blowing in!!!!!

Wow! The Lake Michigan steam is something! It has been so hot, I imagine the Lake is way warmer than normal. The fresh veggies look terriffic! Love this time of year when we get all that great, fresh stuff....
