Ken did the first mowing the day before yesterday after the fence was finished. It sure does look nice. You can just barely see the River in the top-right corner of this picture.
I walked down to the far back corner of our property this morning to see exactly what I could see. This is what I saw. You can see the railroad tracks between the camera and that house, and you can see the river just to the right of that house. There are two or three horses that live in the fenced pasture on this side of the tracks.
The previous owner of this house left me this big planter with a tomato plant in it. We just noticed some ripe cherry tomatoes on it yesterday and I picked them this morning.
I washed them and picked one out to try, shook a little salt on it, and popped it in my mouth whole. OMG, sweet! So good!
The tag was in the pot. They are Yellow Pear Tomatoes.
The tree is still loaded with some that are not ripe yet.
What a nice surprise and treat.
I swept and mopped my kitchen and bathroom floors for the first time.
See how nice and clean they are? Love that 70's linoleum. Ha.
It's not long for this world.
Here she is. My sad little 70's kitchen with yellow counters.
What was with these people and YELLOW??
Obviously they liked it. Ick!
I really don't hate it like I thought I would.
It's kind of neat, really. I like the oldness of it.
But I'm not crazy or anything...it's going to be totally updated soon.
It's next after the new deck.
I did my first baking yesterday. I made a Butter Sugar Cookie recipe that was in the Friendship Cookbook I bought at a yard sale the other day. A new kitchen takes some getting used to. Every time I needed something, I'd open six drawers before I found the one with what I needed in it.
Here's the recipe. Click on the picture and when it comes up in a new window, print or copy and paste into a Word document and print from there. The Word document method works best and prints faster, but if you don't have Microsoft Office on your computer, the other method works too.
A goofy picture of Fletcher.
These two deer were laying in someone's yard.
Aren't they cute? They look fake.
Tonight is Taco Tuesday at Tuk's Tavern! Can't wait to see how that is. I'll try to take some pictures while I'm there and tell you about it tomorrow. I'm a little nervous because that's just how I am about any social situation. I just have to suck it up and make myself go. I know I'll be glad I did.
