Living with our decisions

I've had a difficult week. On Monday, I had to make a very hard decision about one of my animals. I have been struggling with this decision for some time now. I'm telling you about this with a heavy heart. I decided to put one of my animals to sleep. He has been sick for some time now. He's been having seizers for about 2 years, and had started having accidents in the house and refusing to use the cat box. I won't go into much detail about this, but after he pooped on my daughters bed in the spring, he spent the rest of the summer outside. Since we've had some colder weather, he wanted in the house. ...... This week after cleaning up after him several times. I came to the decision, I could not go though the same thing as last winter ....... I'm feeling so bad.

Apple Butter, Yumm!

I'll continue with my four legged friends later this week.

I wanted to share with you what I made this weekend. A friend brought us some homemade apple butter and biscuits in to work on Thusday, " It was so yummy." I wanted to try to make it myself. I had never tried this recipe before.
I'm sharing just in case you want to try some yourself.

Wine sap apples

Crock Pot Apple Butter
8 cups apples - sliced and unpeeled ( I used Wine saps)
4 cups sugar
4 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. allspice
2 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. cloves
Stir all ingredients together. Place in crock pot; uncovered, cook on high for 8 to 10 hours. It isn't necessary to stir. Put in sterilized jars and seal in water. Bath 10 minutes. May also kept in refrigerator or freeze. Should make about 12 (8oz.) jars.


I did stir mine, several time ... just couldn't leave it alone. I put mine in the freezer, in little bags. Didn't have any small jars, but, I love that idea , they would make great gifts.
I ran mine through the blender to make it smoother. It was a little lumpy.

Meet Gidget

This is Gidget. She is the most mature .... (oldest) animal that lives with me. She's nine years old. She has been sick lately, I've had her to the vet twice in the last two months and both times she has had a fever of 104 ( I'm not sure if that a high temperature for a dog, but it seamed high to me ). They gave me a different reason for the fever's both times. I 'm worried that somethings else is going on with her. I hope she gets better soon.

I love this picture, she was looking up at the island in the kitchen. She just knew there was food up there.

They have to actually put this little picture on the intertubes, Like someone wouldn't know, NOT to ride with their head in the water.

Wild Flower so many shapes

I don't know what most are called.
I couldn't find one of these with all of its pedals.
I think this one is called Western Ironweed.
I love how it has those little curly things on top.
I think this is the one that causes everyone fall allergies.

Ya'll have a Good Day!
