it's all about the mud

Seriously, after 5 straight days of rain
you don't want to see what the floors of our house look like.

Thank you mucky dog feets!

But I will show you what our old man Jack is sporting these days:
a  wondrous coat of mud!

There are plenty of burrs to go around, too:

Yep, autumn - time of plant seeding, cold rains,
shorter days and less to eat in the fields.

I hate to say it but I'm happy I get to live inside!

Today is grey and blustery
apparently a nice stretch of warm sunny weather is on the way.

*I'll cry if not*

For dinner tonight: 
Egg shred.

Layer in a baking dish:

Shredded potatoes, peeled and rinsed dry
Shredded cauliflower
Chopped spinach, green onions, peppers if you like
Shredded cheese

Cover with beaten mixture of eggs, milk, spices.

Bake until bubbly and browned on top.

Of course carb content has been monitored during the day,
plenty of fruit and veggies have been eaten
and junk food has been avoided.



I'll leave you with a sound byte -
it's kind of relaxing, isn't it?

Happy Hump Day, peeps!

Blog looks beautiful!

Horses look beautiful!

Egg dish sounded divine! Yummy!

Do you feed your chickens anything special (such as organic feed?) to keep them healthy?
