Good morning Lannie and TN ?
How are you all doing today ?
I've been stuck in the MUD for three days! Man, I love the warmer temps (we broke 50 twice in a row!), but the mud! Seriously, I get stuck in it and can't pull my foot out, and I was INSIDE the (flooded) horse barn. Also, I think the water trough is leaking out the hole where the de-icer thing goes in, because there's a huge puddle of water behind and to the side of it. One more month, and we can put the trough back outside and not worry about the de-icer until next winter. If it leaks outside, who cares?
Also, I just couldn't think of anything brilliant to say lately, so I've just been reading. Today is Rich's birthday, so yesterday I spent most of the day making a dark chocolate layer cake and the most amazing ganache frosting. A friend of ours has a chocolate farm (cacao farm, I mean) in Ecuador, with a processing plant, and he recently sent us several large bars (large meaning 12 oz, not candy-bar size) of 75% cacao bittersweet chocolate. O.M.G. It's SO GOOD! So I used some of it for the ganache and it BLOWS AWAY the stuff I usually make with "regular" semi-sweet chocolate. Of course, Rich, being the boring person he is, when I asked him how he liked it (he got to lick the bowl), said, "It's not very sweet, is it?" Holy cow, that's the whole point! Chocolate without all the overpowering sweetness! The chocolate is deep and dark, and you can taste the butter and vanilla in it, not just UGH-SWEET. He doesn't understand good chocolate, not at all.

This is why wheelbarrows were invented.
You put the bag in the wheelbarrow and wheel it out to the coop. Don't you have a wheelbarrow? We have three of them, one in each barn for poop, and one "floater" for general duty, plus a light-duty hand truck, a dolly, and of course, the sled for winter hauling. There's nothing I can't haul out to the barn from the garage.
