 Did your pancakes have a message on them this morning?  Ours did......anyone have a clue what it means???

P.S.  These are from scratch, of course.  Easy peasy.
 After breakfast (included real maple syrup from Costco and COFFEE, of course!) off to do my morning farm chores!  Checked on my litter of English Lop bunnies - they're about 5 days old now and so far looking pretty good!  Don't you love that little white & black spotted one curled up on top?  The coloring is called Magpie and I'm surely hoping that one is a keeper!
 Husband was out early and shot a were rabbit (oops! that's what we call them around here...).  Actually it's just a wild bunny that raids the garden all the time!  The coyote population is diminished and we're overrun with rabbits this year.  This is Baby DeeDee and she has claimed this feast as her own!  (Farm life is not for the faint-of-heart).  Wouldn't it be nice if she'd get a taste for wild rabbit and keep the population down a bit?
 On to my chosen job for the day....WEEDS!  My flower beds are coming back!  I'm winning the war on weeds (famous last words...).  Actually this is just one teensy spot that needed weeding and LOOK at that ridiculously large pile of weeds.  UGH.  I may not survive.
Epsom salts bath for me tonight!
 Honesty (also known as Money Plant - figure that out!) where it self-seeded under the steps.  This is on the north side of the house and gets mossy & needs painting every year!
 VIOLETS!
 BEARDED IRIS!
 SNAPDRAGONS!
Ok, I got tired of being outside (and just plain TIRED) and I never did make my son's chosen birthday cake back in May, so I came in and made Esther's Orange Marmalade Cake from the Mitford Series written by Jan Karon.  I LOVE those books and who wouldn't love this cake????  And then we ate it!
PERFECT after all that weeding!  Now I'm signing off and the day is not over yet!  Still have evening milking to do and dinner to make........
Italian Bread Crumb Chicken sounds good...Yes???

  1. Obviously your pancake is referring you to Exodus 8:11, "And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only."

    Unless you have been really naughty and it is referring you to Deuteronomy 8:11-14, "Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day: Lest when thou hast eaten and art full [of pancakes, maybe?], and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein; And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied; Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage."

    Or you could just have a scratchy pan or spatula.

    We love Jan Karon's Mitford series at our house, but we have never made Esther's Orange Marmalade Cake.
