Walk in the woods

Posted by Range Officer Rhonda on March 17, 2008

Yesterday I was finally blessed with a few hours of quiet as the boys decided to take a walk in the woods. When they got home, I got to hear the full tale of the missing goat (probably dead after all these years) and how my son had found one new shed (antler) from an 8 point buck. Today he wants to go back and find some more, so I say more power to him! I just hope he doesn’t get caught out when the hail storms begin or the first tornado warnings start coming in. I think I’ve taught him well enough, and he is 14 years old. Dad is going fishing – is he nuts or what? The winds are steady at about 15mph and gusting probably to 40. I’m waiting on some clients that are stuck in the mess called IH35 as they battle the winds, rain and traffic from up north about 200 miles away. After my afternoon tax clients leave, I can see I will probably have to make a big pot of deer chili for our evening repast, or perhaps I’ll make another batch of fresh she-crab chowder. Two days ago I used that last of our Thanksgiving turkey & broth with frozen garden veggies to make a great stew that we all enjoyed. I’ve had the cooking bug lately, and this is a strange time of year for it. Yum! My lunch of a turkey wrap just isn’t cutting it now, and all I had for breakfast was the last slice of a sugar free cinnamon coffee cake that I whipped up while I was ‘stewing’ a couple days ago. Now I’m staring at a box of unsweetened chocolate that I found in the back of my pantry – I wonder what I can make next? You can tell I’ve been indulging in a little spring cleaning – as the pantry and freezer get emptied, recipes just pop out left and right from the tidbits I find. I’m sure I’ll create something in my mind while I work throught the next couple of tax returns. Wish me luck!
