Friday Randoms


Just a sweet Katydid inspecting the clothesline.  

My son left the gate open and our herd of cows decided to explore the farmette during the night.  They left evidence of their travels by the garage, the back porch, the dog kennel, the pool, etc.....

The girl of the house dropped a fresh bar of Dove soap in the toilet and then it was flushed......good times here on the farmette lately!  Good Times!  

I made this recipe from Pinterest.  What did I think about it?  Meh, would be the word of choice.  

NPR had a sweet story about Bob Dylan giving Old Crow Medicine Show a song he had written.  Here is the product from their recently released CD.  

Linking up with Tanya today!

  1. love the picture, how cute! oh no about the gate!! do you use the pink dove? my mom used that all her life. it's a smell that takes me back to my childhood. how funny, the other day i was thinking of her while at the grocery store so i bought some pink dove :) bummer about the recipe, i bet it would be much better on the grill though. i hate when i try something new and it's not really all that. that's the problem with pinterest, everything looks so good and you have so many people that just want to make pretty pictures with their recipes, and then they really aren't all that great! anyways, thanks for joining and have a great weekend!

  4. Not sure about the Hawaiian sauce- doesn't really sound good, but I like to try new crock pot recipes- easy peasy meals, for sure. Sorry about the open gate..good thing they didn't take a stroll down the road! Have a great weekend!

  6. At least the cows stayed close to home so they were easier to round up! I bet your son doesn't leave the gate open again.
    At least it was just a bar of soap. It could have been something more valuable.
    Have a great weekend.

  9. I agree with Barb, at least the cows stayed near. Otherwise it would have been a complete nightmare hunting them down :D

  10. I remember back in the day in jolly old England, if the farmer left the gate open and the cows got into our neighborhood, many came out with bucket and pail to pick up the manure for their rose gardens. It was a happy day when the cows got out. True story! My dad was one of them.

  11. Well then I won't try that recipe! Meh is a good enough critique for me! So glad the cows didn't wander far!

  12. Great picture! Too bad the recipe was just so so. It was so easy! I really like that song!

  13. Hope the cows were easily herded back to the right place! Don't you just love the evidence that they leave behind!! No pun intended!!
    But....one thing for sure.....it's great fertilize!

  14. Love your bright green friend! The story of the cows is funny, at least at a distance. I confirm the 'meh' about the recipe...

  17. great shot of your little green visitor. a bar of soap... hope it didn't stop up the plumbing! or flush bubbles! no words regarding your wandering cows

  18. It's kinda funny about the roaming cows….but surely only from my distance. The soap in the toilet? We've not experienced that. Don't you hate it when you go through the trouble of a new recipe and it comes out *meh*…..makes me wonder what I did wrong of if the recipe sharer has bad taste. HA HA.

  19. We are being visited by grasshoppers this hear...making swiss cheese out of my garden. Maybe that bar of soap will clean out the plumbing when it dissolves.

  20. On a farm there is never a dull moment, but escaping cows is not a good one. Super shot of the grasshopper!

  22. Too bad that recipe wasn't fantastic...it sounds like it would have been. Ughghgh...patties in the pool and suds in the pot. Sorry.

  23. The little green Katy is a great catch (rather now that in the closet!)
    Oh boy - accidents happen, your son may remember to close the gate next time !? :). I hope everybody help with cleaning up ...,
    Hope you get some peaceful moments with a cup of coffee at some point, Michelle!

  25. Some days are worse than others and yiurs may wuality, Michelle, but then there will be those Wow days and the bad ones will seem so insignificant. We have all had our share of recipes that look good but don't taste the same.

  26. Oh no! Cows on the lose and soap ion the toilet--it sounds like a lot of messes that had to be cleaned up!

  27. Superb picture.

  28. It looks like it's setting up for a dual with the clothes peg.
    wow, it's a long time since I saw something so appealing to eat with just 4 ingredients.
