We’re snowed in here in the great Pacific Northwest. Since the Oldsmobile didn’t want to leave the house, I decided I’d tuck myself away and bake some Italian “Christmas” Cookies. i found the recipe at All Recipes, and if you click here on Ravioli Dolci, you will be taken to the recipe.
I used my very own homemade Bing Cherry Almond Preserves. I like the taste of the cherry and almond flavors together in this very buttery and tender cookie dough.
My vintage Frosty looks right at home on a blanket of snow furnished by, none other than, Mother Nature herself.
Although, I might add, since the photo was taken, she has gifted us with a few inches (and counting) more.
I’ve been worried about the chickens. The weather has dipped down to 15 degrees here. The girls just seem to shake it off and look up at the sky with an, “Is that all ya got?” look on their faces. They are tough old birds!
I took this photo, the other day, while I was out checking for eggs. Four and five eggs a day and they just keep’em comin’.
Pearl is the Golden Comet here in the front. I told her that if she and her girlfriends needed to take a break from laying, I’d understand. She didn’t say anything, but I knew from the look of disgust on her face that I had insulted her.
Two hours later I heard her announcing the eggs. Sure enough, five eggs were sitting in the nest when I went out to check on them.
As I walked away from the coop, I could have swore I heard her mumbling, under her breath— something to do with the size of my backside and just how many breaks one woman needs to take in a day.
Pearl has a good heart, but she has no patience with women who don’t work as hard as she does.
My new table centerpiece because, as usual, it’s all about the chickens.
