Merry Christmas Eve! There isn't anything like being snowed in curled up by the tree and fireplace in a fluffy blanket with a hot peppermint mocha. I don't need to run out and go through a line to order one, I can make it right here at home. I am my own barrista!
Well, I've gone and done it again; I've made a new tradition or two. This year I really wanted to try a bunch of new recipes and make them my own, and so far two of them are really big hits! I have more to make, but I've already made rum/bourbon balls and pumpkin seed brittle.
There I was, minding my own business, getting hay for my sheep, when lo, under yonder pallet, a critter doth hissed! I screeched and laughed. Hhheee's bbbaaaccckkk!
I am always incredulous when it frosts or freezes here in Florida. It just doesn't seem like it's possible, but it often happens here in Central Florida. Hence, we really have to watch the weather forecast so we are ready for it.
It's that time of the year again! Well, it's been that time of year again for a while now. See, I'm normally way behind this time of the year, but THIS year - I'm actually keeping up. I've decided I'm going to start a new tradition, because I like those types of things. I'm going to make sure I do one Christmas activity each day until Christmas Day.

The lemons are ready! Now comes the incessant juicing and freezing of this liquid gold. Now begins the drooling over lemon meringue pie. Now begins the obsession over lemon bars and cookies. I love my lemon tree.
Sad story. I've been out finishing up the mowing of the pastures. We need to force a little more green and even out the hillocks.
So, a couple of weeks ago, in the middle of the night, I sat bolt upright in bed having heard a cat scream the most blood-curdling scream ever. I woke up yelling our outdoor cat's name, Tito, knowing for sure the scream meant he was in the throes of death.
