Ode de Pepe Le Pew

This morning we woke to fog lingering over Somewhere, Oklahoma.  The fog created a fine mist, and with the temperatures at 26 degrees, this mist turned into miserable ice.  Roads were slick, black ice very apparent.  This was one of those mornings where you wanted to drive your kids to school.  After opening the door and walking gingerly on the front porch (to prevent falling because of ice), I made sure our little friend, Pepe Le Pew was nowhere in sight.  It was obvious he was near, you could smell him.   Apparently, some poor bastard got nailed, lol.  I must say, it’s nice to have a skunk that alerts you with its scent when someone or something has cut through your property. 

 I borrowed a great cookie recipe, Mountain Man’s Everything Cookies, from a friend’s blog.  Please check out Glo’s blog for the recipe and information on living off the grid, and homesteading: http://offthegridat-30.blogspot.com/2012/02/recipe-thursday-mountain-mans.html
Picture of the Cookies (talk about heaven!!!!)

I made roasted chicken for dinner the other night.  The chicken was prepped with olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice, lemon slices and orange slices (picture of chicken in prep stage. Sorry, I failed to take a picture of the end result).  When finished baking, I served the chicken with mashed potatoes and fresh broccoli.

In closing for the night, I had to take this picture of Beans with his toy (a hedge hog).  He felt the need to bring this toy to our bed.  This hedge hog toy has become a mate for our silly little dog.  He takes this toy everywhere, shakes it, throws it, and bites it. 



  1. Beans looks like he takes VERY good care of his little buddy. :)

    1. Oh yes, Beans loves his little buddy. Beans is a great dog, he's part of the family and very spoiled, lol.

  2. LOL! Love reading your blog! We had a huge problem with skunks so I can totally relate to the smell! I just made another batch of those cookies today! I so have to keep my hands of them! :) Have a great weekend!

    1. Glo, Thank you, I love reading your blog too. Your cookie recipe is a hit in my house. I will be pulling out another batch from the freezer and baking more tomorrow. Have a great weekend.
