That's right my dog Skeeter(my miniature dachshund)is driving me crazy!!! Lil' Sis gave her a toy. This toy is shaped like a baby chick. It's purple, so it doesn't really look like a real one. One thing that it does do is it peeps. If you touch it in a certain area, it makes the sound like a baby chick. I think that is the problem. She thinks its her baby!!!! She carries it around wherever she goes. If it peeps, she goes crazy! If she is not in her carrier with her "baby," she wines. It's not a normal whine, it's a very high pitch "whistle." It's driving me crazy!!!!! Thanks Lil' Sis. (Imagine a very big frown on my face.)
This last weekend was very nice. The weather was perfect. Now if only the garden will catch up. I picked some beans Saturday, but it wasn't enough to really make a batch.
The berries are still going strong. My uncle and his three grand daughters came over yesterday to pick some. They couldn't believe how much there were and how big. I kept telling them they were monsters. lol. Anyway, we picked tons(well maybe not tons) of berries. We were all scattered out picking until our hearts were content. Then all of the sudden, my uncle lets out a yell and starts running out of the berry patch. Hornet nest!!!!! As he was running, he dropped his bucket,which was full of berries, and he fell, sliding down the hill. Once he stopped sliding, he laid still hoping the hornets wouldn't sting him. He is allergic to them. I kept the grand kids over by me that way them wouldn't get into the hornets. We kept yelling over to him to make sure that he was ok. He said he was, but he dropped all of his berries. He also dropped his Gerber multi-tool back by the nest. Great. After a little while he gets up slowly and makes his way over to us. No stings! YEA! We decided we can go back latter and get the Gerber. I think he was more mad about the berries though. lol. He had smashed berries all up his side from shoulder to shoes. When he got home he said he even had them in his underwear. lol. Poor guy.
Anyway everything came out alright. I'm just freezing my berries now. Oh, I have the best frozen yogart recipe.
1 lb fruit(If using berries with a lot of seeds, you might want to strain them)
1 1/2 cups greek yogart(more if you want. I used a lot of yogert)
sugar to taste.( I used about 1/2 cup)
vanilla (once again, to taste)
blend in blender, pour into bowl and freeze for at least 3 hrs.
eat and enjoy!
This is the best cold dessert for the summer.
Hubby is lactose intolernt but he can have yogart. He LOVES this! I hope you do too.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, frozen yogart eater.
