Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Yes, A good Idea Chocolate Cake

I knew better than to think about baking a cake.. but, I was craving chocolate... I even left one end unfrosted for Clay per his request..
A good thing to make on a cold day. I chopped cashews too and tossed them on top. Lets see, I can probably eat 1/2 of it this week..if I sneak out for a midnight snack with a tall glass of milk....and there is always breakfast tomorrow.. You never throw away chocolate know that...and besides
Chocolate is good for you, research has proven it. It's Dark chocolate too.. and It has good Diet stuff in it like Organic white flour, cocoa, eggs, milk, sour cream, ...water, yes it has water..thats the Diet part.
Sure wish I had some company coming over......

Winter is still here

Yesterday Clay &I went out to the Lower Klamath National Bird Refuge. We saw several Tundra Swans, a few Bald eagles , Canada Geese, some unidentified ducks, & Snow Geese. It was cold with a few tiny snowflakes falling. Buster had a great time running and sniffing every hole and bunch grass he found.
I think this picture is one that captures "Winter stillness" Today I am going to practice stillness. I am anxious to get the garden ready to plant and know full well Mother Nature is not going to be be rushed. Today will be a planning day. Making plans for Spring planting, wait for seeds to arrive and read. I might even bake a cake.
