I have received a couple of birthday presents already. My husband got me a couple of vintage rock posters and these flowers. My father got me a farm cart. I assembled it on a rainy day on the back porch. This was somewhat challenging because there are spaces between the floor board of the porch, and I had to be really careful not to drop any of the nuts, bolts, washers, etc. And it was challenging because the instructions were ridiculous. But I got it done. A farm cart is essential for moving things like feed around here especially during mud season. Hopefully this one will last many years to come.
I have also been cooking nostalgic foods. I have been posting about this at https://www.facebook.com/donna.schoonover rather than here as it is not farm related. But since I have been making full recipes and there is only Tom and I, the chickens have been getting the leftovers. It is kind of a chicken vacation. Here they are eating sherry bundt cake, apple fritters and tiramisu. This morning they got eggs rolls and chocolate zucchini cake.
