It's been a busy couple of days with work. Getting that new store set up and catching up on some other stores so they wouldn't be late. All caught up now. Starting fresh on Monday. Lots of projects to do, too.
Yay, it's Saturday. Boo, it's cage-cleaning day ... Fun times ...
First load of laundry started. Warming some tapioca in the oven. Exercises done ...

Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.

Well. Just over an hour to clean cages today. And, the bucks got to run around in the doves' room. Nice how quick things can get done when I have help.
We had some nice rain yesterday. And, more predicted tomorrow morning. But, today is clearing. So, I'll be uncovering the barbecue later and cleaning it and digging the charcoal out of the shed. Ribs! That's what's for dinner. ;)
Made a new batch of kefir.
Making an apple cider vinegar marinade for the ribs. Very spicy!
Late lunch. Smoothie: raw milk kefir, 4 large strawberries, 1 ripe banana, ¼ teaspoon each of maca powder, chia seeds, hemp seeds, gelatin & ½ teaspoon raw cacao powder. Mmmmm.
I should make more kombucha, but I think I'll wait until tomorrow. I hope to make yogurt tomorrow, too.
Third load of laundry in the washer ...
Got the barbecue going and the ribs are on. Decided to just do the apples the way my mom wanted to try. Apple halved and laid on the grill. I may sprinkle with a bit of sugar, too.
My mom's amaryllis finally bloomed. The other one should open soon. It never would bloom in a pot.

Early dinner. Sooo goood!
|Yeah, I got a little bit of char happening. Out-of-practice with tamping the flames down.|
|The marinade didn't turn out as spicy hot as I expected ...|
Not enough sugar left to make my kombucha. I may have to put it in the fridge tomorrow, so it won't get too vinegary before I can get more.
