Mowing ~ Geese and Turkeys ~ Mac & Cheese w/ Pesto

Good 38ยบ soon to be rainy morning.
Yesterday I got busy... steam cleaned the kitchen and back porch floors. They always feel so great after I do that. Then did laundry. The back door rug needed it badly, so now all nice and fluffy clean again. Made more Easter earrings. The I mowed. And mowed. And mowed! Ran out of gas....
There it is, way down there. The gas can was so heavy I put it on the hand truck and walked it down there. Then on the way back I held onto the hand truck and drove back to the carport.
It got cold and very windy. I quit after I filled the tank. Smelling like gasoline... not my favorite smell... Came in, cleaned up, and poured a glass of wine. Ahhhhh.... 
The geese are making their visits out front now...
This is GOOD!!!! Came from Ben Hunt and DeWayne Honey P-berger!

Dinner was an experiment...
I started with cooking some wild rice. Then added the elbows the last few minutes. When done added the sauce that came in the box with the elbows. Then added pesto. Also, drained mushrooms, cooked peas, diced up left over pork sirloin chop... and more cheese and some evaporated milk and pulled the meat off a chicken leg and added that. OH MY. What a concoction. It was GOOD! Pesto in mac and cheese is the way to go....
All I know. Nuff said.
