Tomorrow night, we will have the four bigger grand boys...
two are already here, having come up from Garnett this afternoon.
Chris will be staying over to go to town at the old house with me next week.
We had a gloriously beautiful spring day.
I don't even mind the dandelions!
The straw bales that protected the ducks this past winter are sprouting grass now.
They are so heavy, they are staying right where they are!
I'm still planning on doing a straw-bale experiement next spring.
Double click on this picture above... and you will see the happy surprise I found down in the
wild corner of the pasture after I did the chores!
See their little heads nodding at you?
The first morels of the season.
Here they are at home, before cleaning.
Dredged in egg, milk, and flour... salted and peppered... no, it's not a diet food... they were cooked in butter.
And, voila! Ready to go on our plates, with a piece of steak, and green beans.
Let's just say I nuked the baked potato a LITTLE TOO LONG.
Keith and I are still dragging a little... so he is already asleep, as soon as he ate.
And... as I reminded Christopher, who helped me do chores on the way home... remember...
there are little worlds all around us, friends... be cognizant of them and take care of them.
We put the lost baby back in with his brothers and sisters, and put the cover down over them.
Even the wee mice deserve a chance.
We are going to pick up our season tickets for the T Bones tomorrow,
and watch a bit of the open tryouts... at 1 grandson Jacob has another soccer game,
and after the game, Jake, and Jax are coming back with us. We'll have an afternoon of
basketball playing, frisbie tossing and Monopoly playing, and we have borrowed a couple of
good movies for the evening. After hamburgers we'll have lots of popcorn and soft drinks, and settle in for the movies.
Sunday, our area is in the plains-wide severe weather watch... so
after breakfast, Jim will come out to collect Jax and Jake, and Nathan and I will head for Garnett and see if I can beat the storms home.
Should be a FUN weekend!
