Friday Follow-Up

This week:

-- I traveled to visit my new grandson! I spent a wonderful week with two of our daughters and their families.

-- The day after I got home, I accompanied our daughter-in-law-to-be and her mother to pick out her wedding dress - another wonderful day. I'm so thankful that she included me in this event.

-- Hubby told me he saw a mouse in a sack of grain while I was gone. I'm glad he warned me so that I wasn't startled when I found it the next morning. I let the cats into the feed room but they ignored the mouse. I moved the nearly-empty feed sack outside where the cats' food bowl is, but again they ignored it, they were too busy eating their breakfast. Finally I poured the grain into a bucket until the mouse was also poured out, and set the bucket in the middle of the six cats where they had congregated after finishing breakfast. That worked: one of the cats caught the mouse in short order and ran off with it. That's what happens to mice at my house: cat food!

We also caught a mouse in the kitchen. That's how I dispose of dead mice: cat food!

-- We had over 2.5" of rain on Saturday, and very nearly got stuck in the mud on our way to town Sunday morning.

-- This week's posts wereCanning Pears and Another Day of Thankfulness


-- What I found this week: Apple Cider and Citrus Turkey Brine with Herbs and Spices. This is the first time I've tried brining a turkey. Even though I didn't let it marinate for as long as recommended, and I didn't have all those exotic spices, our turkey was moist and delicious.
