Hiding Out



After a summer/fall drought, you sure don't ever want to wish away rain...but a couple days off would be nice.  What a slop fest!

  2. Aw, show us your scones too! Our kitties have sheepskin donuts like those in your photos. Have a great weekend. Jo

  3. The fur kids know what to do on a rainy day - sleep! Yes, inquiring minds want to see the scones and a recipe would be nice too. We are supposed to have rain in the coming week with temps in the 40s and 50s - strange weather for January.

    1. As anyone who's ever been to our farm knows, I am not a cook/baker. However, in an effort to be able to make sourdough pancakes for the Iditarod/Iknitarod this winter I got a sourdough starter...which requires weekly maintenance...which has led to me learning how to make pizza crust, simple breads and now scones :-). Amazing! Anyway, I just used the Christmas Scones recipe from King Arthur Flour http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/christmas-scones-recipe They were very tasty :-D.

    3. In response to thecrazysheeplady - Hey, I have fond memories of a pimento cheese sandwich. Truly, I'm not kidding!

      A good part of my house flooded on Tuesday night - due to uphill neighbors not maintaining the drains in their yard + the amount of rain we've been having. I'm sleeping on the couch in the family room while the bedrooms are ripped up. Good thing = no fiber was harmed during the flood :-)

  4. Our rainy days will be next week, nevertheless, my pets have already started their 20/24 sleep cycle. And gosh, I baked scones yesterday too (but the family has gobbled most of them up).

  5. We had a drought too here in the Northeast but I'm hoping it's over. It seemed to rain or snow continually since Christmas Eve. Caught a break this week though. Love scones too!

  6. Here in Oregon where I am, we've had record breaking snow and cold temps. Ill-equipped, the entire Portland metro area and it's surrounding suburbs came to a standstill. Now comes the rain, the thaw, and the threat of flooding. It sure has been an interesting winter so far.

    I think sweet Comby (xoxo!) has the right idea; hunker down in a donut and sleep until the rain passes...

  7. I always detest mud season, whenever it comes.
