Happy Birthday Harley Davidson! ~ Peanut Butter Lover's Day

Good 40º morning. Drizzled on and off all day
yesterday and we ended up with about .22" of
the liquid stuff.
Hard to believe it is March already.
Year is going too fast.
Breakfast was some sauteéd left over
chicken and grape tomatoes,
added egg, and then cheese.
Yesterday I paid bills, (Whooppee), made cards, fought with my printer again, did membership stuff for JCRW, went to Ace for cracked corn and a thingy that goes in the toilet tank that covers the hole where the water goes out, and store for sugar for my hummer food.
For dinner I cooked some Quinoa (an ancient grain..gluten free and filled with lots of nutrients) in my old rice cooker. (It's 37 years old and still working like a champ! Jerry and I bought it in Little Tokoyo in Los Angeles) Cooled it and added can of mushroom slices, black olives, diced tomato, diced avocado, chopped cooked garlic, finely diced shallot, mozzarella cheese, and chopped leftover chicken. I drizzled on olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon juice. AWESOME!

I am happy to report that as of yesterday Maggie's water consumption has dropped to half. She only drank about 1 gallon of water yesterday. YEAH!!! And she is eating ok. She likes Alpo so 1/3 of a large can for breakfast and dinner. The only treats she will eat now are Newman's Own. She likes the little heart shaped doggie cookies.
"My" geese are getting back to their old friendly selves. Today they came close when I tossed out some cracked corn. The rest of the day the 'played' in the creek in the lower pasture....
And the turkeys are everywhere.
I counted 15 Toms and over 30 hens...

Ok, all I know. Nuff said. Off to RR to
get the old choppers buffed up
and for my 6 month check up.
Happy Tuesday
