Honey Bear!

Paleo Bread


Paleo seems to be all the rage now, so I thought I would try this recipe!  The outcome was well...just okay and it would need to be kept in the frig, because I didn't and it molded within a couple of days.  Give it a try if ya like and let me know what your thoughts are....


The recipe came from Elana's Pantry here!    Enjoy!

This Is So Cool......

Baked Hard Boiled Eggs


Just put your raw eggs in the muffin tin. Put them in the oven at 325 degrees (Don't Preheat) for 30 minutes.



Fill a bowl with ice water and when the eggs are done, place them in the water for 10 minutes.



I peeled one right away and I was so amazed, this was the best tasting egg and OMG!!  so easy to peel, (which is a first) usually I fight with eggs to get this job done!



From now on this will be my method!  


Enjoy!  :)

Deep



DEEP

Deep blue is the sea
as the eyes shine true.

The whispers of the night
come from the depth
of the sea.

Breathe...Breathe...
says one thought to another,
as the whisper continues
to the depth of the sea.

Oh lordy, says one bubble to
another at the depth of the blue sea.

Meet Chloe and Taffeta!!

Today, was getting back into the Goatie World....cleaning and organizing the barn for our new arrivals that came this afternoon! Chloe is on the left and Taffeta is on the right! Now these girls come from very pure breed Pygmy stock, but we don't care anything about that, we just wanted some fun, happy, and adorable little friends to love on, and that is exactly what we got. Their previous Mama which was Jill was looking for a wonderful home for them, because they can't be bred anymore, as their last pregnancies didn't go so well!


Chloe is 7 and Taffeta is 6 yrs. of age. We just love how calm and sweet these girl's are.....we are very lucky to get them!

Here's Chloe, hopefully we can get some other photo's soon of them not behind the panel....they were kinda checking out everything going on today.

Hello Taffeta!! :)

Enjoying their first dinner and did I mention they love animal crackers...he he.....go figure! :) I am so looking forward to some new and fun adventures with them....I love you girls and we just met! Hugs!
