I'm a Bit Behind

I'm behind in my Compound updates, so here goes;

This past Saturday was incredibly foggy.  It was like peanut butter! (don't you mean pea soup?, you eat what you like and I'll eat what I like)  If you catch the reference let me know what show it's from.  Just a little trivia game.

The temperatures warmed up to the lower 80's and it felt great after the past couple weeks of cold.  We fired up the pizza oven and made a Jamaican Jerk Chicken Pizza, and then the typical pepperoni, sausage, etc.   My dough didn't turn out as good, ended up more like a deep dish, which came out doughy as the toppings would burn before the dough was done.  I know what the issue was and will correct it for the next time.

We took care of the typical stuff, and had to add some additional mulch to the chicken coop and hog pen areas due to the over abundance of rain the previous few days.  I'd say upwards of 5-7 inches of steady rain, maybe more.

The new pigs are doing great, starting to fill out and quickly figured out that people = food.

Yes, they've almost rutted up the entire area!
I'm throwing this picture out there just for the heck of it, because I liked it!  Robins, we have lots of Robins this time of year. Until next time, have a great day everyone!

the photo looks better on my computer, not so fuzzy


  1. The canal pics are lovely. I'm not a big TV watcher but I'll guess ... Seinfeld?

  2. I'm not a big tv watcher either these days (although we used to be big Seifeld fans). Your view is gorgeous, Izzy! And the piglets are pretty cute. :)

  3. Izzy,

    Love your pictures. Do you live off of a canal? We used to live down in Southern Florida next to several canals. Love them however, didn't love the gators <**>

    1. We don't live there, its just vacant property. We don't care for the gators that float down it either. We had one that was at least 14' long last year. Haven't seen him/her this year but have been told it's still out there.

  4. Here's another one (my personal fave)

    I'm cute! I'm cute! She said I'm cuuute!!

    One of the best Christmas stories ever.



We love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
