Today has been a lovely day. There were eagles soaring every which way I looked. The marsh has open water in several areas and the snow geese should be here by tomorrow. Soon the caribou will migrate to their calving grounds. Spring is indeed here. Oh, we may still get a snow shower, but it won’t last. The nights are still in the 20 degree range, however, within a couple weeks it should stay above freezing most nights.
While feeding the Savannah monitor lizard a few days ago I was mistaken for her food. She grabbed hold of the side of my index finger and when it didn’t die right away, she clamped down harder. Well, with my husband tapping of the side of the aquarium she let loose. Then she saw her real food. I washed up really well, rinsed with hydrogen peroxide and then applied grapefruit seed extract to the area. I really expected that to be the end of it. I’ve soaked the finger in Epsom salt water a couple times a day and put calendula tincture, tea tree oil, or GSE on it, but it is still red, swollen, and sore. It’s about time to soak my finger again.
I have been busy working on our taxes for several days, but now they are finished. I’ll be sending them off on Monday with a check.
I made up a double batch of vegetable broth this morning, packaged it in two gallon-size bags and put them in the freezer to use at a later time. It certainly smelled good. Then, this afternoon I bought three legs of lamb. One will be for Easter dinner and one I cut up into several bags of stew meat and a bag with a meaty bone and fat. The third just went into my freezer for a large meal some other time. If it didn’t have a bone in it, I would have cut it into two roasts. I really like lamb, but it is usually only available here for Easter so I had to buy in a little bulk amount.
While at the store, I also bought some fresh green beans. Okay, they aren't extremely fresh, but they are almost as fresh as we can get here. They will be a part of Easter dinner. I also bought some mint jelly to go with the lamb, and sweet potatoes, too. That should make a pretty good meal full of "O" foods.
That is just about all for now. Those taxes just wore me out. Till next time…
