I shouldn't complain, but ... we just didn't have the best weather in the world this weekend, though yesterday was better. Still cold, but not unbearable. However, they are predicting sunshine and near 70 degrees starting on Thursday - YAY!!!
I found bulbs growing UNDER my front steps yesterday. Best guess? The chipmunk that used to live there (the one I live-trapped a week or two ago) must have nabbed them from somewhere and brought them home to eat later. And they grew. I'll frequently find masses of sunflowers growing where the chippie buried sunflower seeds. It must really frustrate them to go back to where they buried their food and find... nothing.
Anyway, I dug up the bulbs and moved them. I don't recognize the foliage, though, so it'll be a surprise for me when they bloom.
DD finished a second 1000 piece puzzle yesterday and nearly finished a third. She's having so much fun working them! I heard somewhere that keeping your mind busy as you get older helps stave off dementia and Alzheimer's. I should be safe.
I made yogurt on Saturday, and the most interesting thing occurred. The yogurt set, but the top of each glass was FULL of liquid that I dumped out, probably 3/4" deep (the jars are only about 4" tall, so that was a LOT). The only thing I did differently this time was use off-brand milk. I almost NEVER buy the cheap milk (I prefer to use either organic or, at the very least, the "no growth hormones, no antibiotics" milk and you can only get that in brand name) but I was at Target and they only had the cheap stuff or Hood and we wanted to use the jug for our greenhouses. Since Hood comes in a "light block bottle", we couldn't use that one, so I got the other.
I found, while reading about food in one book or another, that the way they "make" milk (in all it's various fat content forms) is by skimming off ALL the cream/fat first so that all milk starts as skim, and then adding back in the fat to meet whatever content they're making: 1%, 2% or whole.
I wonder... do you suppose that the cheap milk uses a different process?
I'm puzzled by this and now am driven by the need to find out.
Your Bed Says You Have Your Head in the Clouds
Outward appearances are very important to you. You do your best to look good and have an attractive home.
You try to be an organized person, but you often fall behind. Certain parts of your life tend to fall into chaos.
You are very high maintenance. You like everything a certain way, and you're grumpy if things aren't the way you like them.
In relationships, you tend to kick back and let the other person be in charge.
You tend to be a dreamy, head in the clouds type of person. You think in terms of possibilities.
You are a bit of a homebody, but you can also make yourself at home anywhere.
Hmmm... maybe 75% right.
