Little Okie

Here’s a picture of the little kitten the girls have decided to give lots of love to.  He is the runt of the liter.  His mother is one of the wild cats that stay here but he is anything but wild.  He is definitely a people kitty.  He loves being where we are and will come running when they call his name.  His mother’s name is Mexico so they decided to call him Oklahoma-Okie for short.  We have been feeding him special food hoping he will catch up to his brothers and sisters. 

I have a whole chicken in the crock pot for supper.  I tried a new recipe that I found online.  This is the first time I’ve tried it so I’ll have to let you know if we like it but it smells delicious.  I think I have mentioned before I want to try out new crock pot recipes more this summer.  Hopefully, it will mean easier for me and less heat in the kitchen.  Along with the chicken we will be having stir fry veggies-fresh from our garden.  Squash, zucchini, green onions and peas.  YUM!!  The recipe is as follows. 

Directions:

 

  1.  In a small bowl, combine the spices.
  2.  Remove any giblets from chicken and clean chicken.
  3.  Rub spice mixture onto the chicken.
  4.  When ready to cook, put chopped onion in bottom of crock pot.
  5.  Add chicken. No liquid is needed, the chicken will make it’s own juices.
  6.  Cook on low 4-8 hours.

Today is a beautiful day here in Floyd.  Temperature is about 72 degrees right now.  We have a strong breeze and the sun is shining.  We got a little rain last night which our plants really appreciated.  I have clothes to hang on the line.  My girls are doing school on the front porch.  My Hubby is at work and our supper is cooking in the crockpot.  God is SO good.  I am indeed a truly blessed woman. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Gilbert

Daniel’s little kitten, Gilbert, taking a much needed rest under the Christmas tree.  He certainly is a cute kitten.  Very fuzzy.  Sam’s eyes light up every time he sees Gilbert.  He would love to sink his chubby little hands into all that fur.

We had a fun day yesterday.  We went over to our friends, the Horns.  Vicki fixed us lunch, then while the kids played, we make some gingersnap cookies.  They were very good.  We also tried our hand at making some breakfast bars or as we call them energy bars.  They did not turn out near as well as I had hoped.  Not too bad just not as I envisoned them being.  We all had a lot of fun though.  God is so good to provide us with friends like the Horns.  We feel very blessed that they are in our lives.

We had so much rain here the first of the week.  I have no idea how much but I know it was a lot.  Everything was soaking wet.  Water was standing in so many places in our yard.  After the rain, temperatures took a drop.  It dropped about 20 degrees from yesterday morning till this morning.  The sun is shining though so hopefully things will warm up some.  I would like to hang my sheets on the line.

The girls and I have lots to get done today so we better get busy.  God bless.
