A Sunshine Day
So what did today bring along the sunshine, after doing the rounds of feeding,
I got some logs split
I wanted to get the Rayburn oven hot as I had bread making on the agenda, I find if the logs are split down they give more heat,
With the log basket full and the fire stoked I got the bread proving
I also got some prawns out to defrost
I had in mind to do a risotto for dinner
while the bread was proving I decided to clean the glass on the log burner
I bought this cleaner the other day
Before the blacken glass
Really easy to use, spray it on leave for 5 mins, wipe off with a damp cloth
One nice clean window
I can see the fire again, the fire was then laid ready for a match to be put to it later.
The bread got baked
A little pale but it tasted fine.
I then got down the cabin finished sorting it out and got some card making done, pics on my craft blog.
Kara and me walked up to the post box to collect the post, then it was time for afternoon feeds I had a quick check on the mouse traps and yes we had one
a little mouse in one of the rat traps, when I removed it and re-set the trap Kara grabbed the mouse and started to devour it, I got it back from her. She cant get to the traps they are out of her reach just as well.
I got my dinner on the way
Prawn and Chirozo Risotto with bread and butter.
The fire is lit I am going to shut up the chooks and ducks then jump in the shower, its been a very satisfying day, gets lots done.
