Day 7 of Indiana Quarantine

Lately I’ve been working with Finn to teach him a new trick. We have been working on rolling over. Since I have plenty of eggs, I boil my bantam eggs and use them as treats for Finn. He loves them. I put a couple in my jacket pocket when I head outside. He gets so excited. Until today I’ve always had to touch his side when he lays down to get him to roll over. Today he smelled the eggs in my pocket. I told him to lay down and I no sooner got roll out of my mouth and he rolled over and sat up waiting on his egg. 😂

Finn is such a good dog. He is a perfect fit with us.

I did a bit of laundry today and worked on my quilt pieces. My diamond painting got a bit attention today. Now I need to go get a property map printed off. We are getting ready to run the timber on this property and need the egis map.

Day 6 of Indiana Quarantine

I slept in this morning. My husband had to go look at some logs. The forestry industry has been declared essential so my husband is still working. He is a log buyer for Michigan Veneer. My company(NJ Logging) is still working also. I do my part from home. The guys did not work today because of all the rain we have had the last few days.

I swept all the floors and cleaned up the house this morning. I started the laundry. I then called The Toy Chest here in Nashville. They are putting together packages for families during this quarantine time. Since we will not get to have our usual Easter with our grandkids I ordered a package for each family. They put together a variety of things according to the kids ages. There will be activity stuff, games and things for them to use outside. They deliver in a certain range and ship to others. Our grandkids will be getting their packages in a few days. I ordered early so that their parents could put the package in he garage or storage shed for a few days before the kids get to open them. Everyone on staff at the Toy Chest are well, but the packages that are being shipped will go through multiple hands and if they sit for a few days the virus germs, if there, will decease.

I started a new puzzle today. I love these White Mountain puzzles.

When the kids were still at home I used to make this Amish sourdough bread. These past couple weeks I started up the starter again. Today I made the first batch of bread from the starter.

My husband done some mowing this afternoon. I fixed me a cup of tea and went out on the deck with a book while he was mowing. I had offered to get my mower out and help, but he said he was just doing a quick go over back there.

I fixed turkey and noodles for supper with our leftover turkey.

I’m sitting here watching Hometown as I post my blog. My dear husband is sleeping in his chair.

Stay safe and stay home as much as possible.

Day 5 of Indiana Quarantine

We started our day with breakfast. Sunday is the only day either one of us eats breakfast. I have coffee Most every morning, but not breakfast.

We watched the Elevation church service on YouTube.

After the church service we went for a walk with our son and his wife . They brought their 3 dogs to go mushroom hunting and hiking on our property. They headed out before us and we met them down by our lake.

This has been an afternoon of finishing projects. I finished the book I was reading. I finished the pillowcases I had been working on.

I worked on my quilt pieces for a bit. I am working on step 3 of a mystery quilt along.

This evening I finished the puzzle that I started a month ago.

I’m sitting here this evening with my husband watching tv. I hope you all are staying safe at home. We will get through this.

Day 4 of Indiana Quarantine

Today was really kind of a lazy day. We slept in a bit this morning. I enjoyed my coffee out on the deck. I’ve been looking forward to it being warm enough for me to have my coffee out there.

I paid a few bills. I cleaned a bit and then had a turkey sandwich for lunch. We then headed out for a walk.

It started raining on us before we got back to the house. It did not last long. It is storming as I write this. As of this time we have lightening warnings, but no tornado warnings. I’m hoping we don’t get any of those. I know Jonesboro, Arkansas got hit pretty bad earlier today. My prayers and thoughts are with them.

We are enjoying a movie this evening. We are watching the early release of I Still Believe.

Day 3 of Indiana Quarantine

It was raining this morning. I put a turkey in brine to soak. I used my crock weights to keep it down in the brine.

I worked for a while in the office. After I was finished in the office I headed outside. I planted my romaine lettuce today and discovered that some critter had transplanted a daffodil to my raised garden. My rhubarb is looking good.

I mixed up som dormant oil to spray my peach tree, apple tree and blueberry bushes. My peach tree is going to be loaded if we don’t have a freeze.

My husband had went to look at some logs and when he returned were going to go on our daily walk. I stuffed my turkey with celery, onion and apples. I put my turkey in the oven before we took off.

It was a bit wet out there today.

We headed back to the house and had our supper out on the deck.

Day 2 of Indiana Quarantine

I spent this morning working in my office. My business office is in my home, so I almost always work from home.
I have a few pictures from my walk today. I always take my walks on our property. I can easily get a 3 mile walk in on our property.

just out in the woods

I came back and tried a new recipe. I will share the link to the recipe below the pictures. These are bar cookies. I really think that I should not have made these. They tasted so good.
