Sunday morning is here along with a fresh dusting of snow on the ground. I’m going through my routine of trying to be quiet in the house while others are sleeping and I catch up on some reading on various websites.
I made some *cornmeal mush yesterday that I’ll cut into slices this morning and butter-fry up for breakfast. In the meantime while I wait for everyone to get up I will just focus on draining the french press of the goodness it holds!
We have had plenty of deer coming in to the yard and I have had the game camera going to try and keep track of the different visitors. While bow season started a few weeks ago, I am behind on getting things setup. Today seems like the day to correct that.
On the list of things to make progress on today are:
- Target time with the bow – need to check zero on it and just plain get some practice time. So many “hunters” come to these parts and it is the first time they have touched their gear since last years party disguised as a hunting trip.
- Get the pile of composted soil spread around on the garden so it can sit for the winter. It is fully “cooked” already, but I need to get it spread around so I have one less thing to do in the spring before we do planting.
- If I get the compost in place, I should try to **sweep up the leaves in the yard to get them covering the garden as well. This worked pretty good this year with leaves and other debris covering the planting rows. It really kept weeding down.
- Did someone say football?
I hope you have a great Sunday!
*Cornmeal mush is a simple recipe that I think of breakfast food, but you can have it as a side to anything. I make mine by boiling 3-3.5 cups of water and then adding 1 cup of cornmeal with 1 tsp salt. Let it simmer for about ten minutes until it is soft. I then pour this into a greased loaf pan allowing it to cool before putting it in the fridge for the night. In the morning, cut into half inch slices and fry in butter. Cover with syrup for a great breakfast that sticks with you.
**I just got a new 44″ lawn sweep by Agri-Fab. Once I get some time with it I will add a review on here to let you know what I think. I used a relatives last year fro ma different manufacturer and so far I am impressed with the construction of the Agri-fab.
