Collecting my raw milk today was especially fun - milking was over and the cows were back in the paddock, I had to walk right through the middle of the herd, and past an electric fence, to get to the cowshed.
L: Chicken and bacon quiche with veges and cheese (HUGE).
S: Piece of dark choc.
D: Sweet and sour pork and kumara, green peas. Grapefruit juice.
For supper a piece of my Mum's coconut and peach slice.
Haha, the animals had no intentions of pushing me around like a rag doll, they just moved out of my way as I passed through the middle, kind of like the parting of the Red Sea! The fence was one of those that you have to grasp the handle and unlink it from the other fence without touching the wire and then relink so as not to let the cows out I was really out of place being dressed in skirt and sandals (again) but it was definitely fun. Then do it all in reverse carrying 6litres of milk.
Today someone mistook me for my daughter - from a distance, admittedly. I should be flattered as she is gorgeous (if I say so myself). But evidently I still haven't managed to put a look together for myself which is stylish enough without being "girlish". Better try again.
L: Two eggs, bacon, roast potato, banana.
Snacks: raisins and chocolate, brazil nuts.
D: Beef satay, rice and broccoli - fresh from my very own garden!! Grapefruit juice - ditto.

just watch the dairy bulls LOL they are almost always aggro as. i miss raw milk but i cant be stuffed driving all over town to get it. i made potato salad tonight with genuine new potatoes. jersey bennes and garlic scaups from my garden instead of chives. i didnt even get to eat any as the kids ate it all before i realised it was gone.Haha, the animals had no intentions of pushing me around like a rag doll, they just moved out of my way as I passed through the middle, kind of like the parting of the Red Sea!
Oh no, I love new potatoes, I hope you have some more.
we have some left and there are more in the shops. $11/kg tho. eeek!! i prefer them boiled and eaten with a bit of butter and salt and pepper to stuffed up in potato salad myself which was why i wasnt quick enough to get any.
when my oldest was a teen, i just happened to be outside in one of her long sleeve tshirts getting something out of my car. some teen boy wandered past and yelled hey at who he thought was her. this was before the rise of the cougar LOL the poor boy nearly died when he realised it was me and i laughed at him.Today someone mistook me for my daughter - from a distance, admittedly.
