lamb or hogget chops are really nice on their own fried with garlic and rosemary. at least the heavy horse float should stay stuck on the road with a horse in it to help in this wind. is she just taking one or two horses? pretty exciting. my middle dd would love to run off with the rodeo. i prob would too given half a chance lol
I actually ended up crock potting them. I have just woken up to the most delicious smells in my house. Look out breakfast here I come !!!!
Middle DD is only taking one horse with her. It is only just broken in, so it really is a learning curve for the wee thing. I think she is just camping at each site, and then maybe bludging a shower here and there as required !
I am not sure what the tarr weight of the float would be, but yep I agree - it will stay on the road in this wind - for sure !!!!
Really Really cold here this morning - as in woollen jersey, headband and woolly sox - cold.
...........anyway happy Waitangi day everyone........... I hope nothing untoward happens on the Marae today !!!!!!
Here is the Cotton reel that DH has made for me out of the big cable reel that he 'found' on the side of the road !!! LOL
actually the boyz said he could have it for a dozen of beer.
Anyway he cut it down and made this table. It is 2.4 mtrs wide, so huge. I think that I could fit 14/16 people around it, so I need to buy some raffia? chairs. I am really dissappointed with the clear polyurithane that we used. I had hoped that it would come out clear, but its gone a wee bit yellow - BUGGAR !!!!! I don't DO yellow !!!!. Anyway should I restain darker ????
We think that its a Scandinavian Spruce, but not sure.
The other thing, and I need to look at Pininterest, is to fill the hole in the middle, and I am thinking that a homemade driftwood candelabra. I could buy a cast iron one, but that would not be a cheap option.
If I leave the hole, I can imagine things falling down into the middle, and then I would have a wee problem retrieving said items.

Not much here yet but we are the wrong side of the country. i was gonna go down to the ocean and check it out. last one we had the most unreal old gnarly shells washed up on the beach in drifts. things like circular saw shells which are deep sea shells.
