White is a good color!

What a difference two days make. I was ready to start my garden(yes I know we are still in Jan) But the difference in all the shades of brown are getting me down. I want color!!!!!!! The Lord listened to me...we are now covered with beautiful white snow. So beautiful, and even nicer since my dh takes care of the outside for me. He wouldn't even let me go and pick my meds. He is very wise, he knows I'm not good in snow.
I found a mag. called Hobby Farm Home. I bought it because is shows how to make Mozzarella Cheese, can't wait to try it, but it is a great mag. has a little of everything in it.
I love to grow spinach!!!!!!!!!! And this year I plan to plant a lot. The bad thing is it doesn't like hot weather. I found in the book a spinach substitue and it loves hot weather. Yah, only I can't find anyone who knows where to find it. It vines up and could grow in a pot. Another good thing. The mag. has a web site so I will have to go there , I know when you have to go to their web site it will cost an arm and a leg. I really don't want to find out I can't get it!
Spring is just a day closer, Yah!

should I laugh or cry

This weekend I fixed bbq wings for my hubby. I really don't like them but for lack of anything else to eat ,I had two wings. Hate the mess and almost no meat. Plus all the work for very little. Well , as I was getting messy and thinking it was just to much mess, it hit me. When I was a little girl and on the farm. My mom would fry up chicken (first she had to chase it and kill it, but that is another story) we would start out getting the wings to eat. As we grew up, we worked up to the drum stick and then the thigh. We never got to go up further than that because the adults would eat them. So at last, I have started working backwords again. Can you believe that hot wings are the thing to eat now. And you pay big buck for the wings that have no meat and little kids get stuck eating them. Ug, that is probably why I don't like anything but the white meat(the breast). My hubby doesn't understand why I don't love the bbq wings.....I guess you had to be there to understand.
