I woke up to a giant truck parked practically on my back porch–which means Ross is home! He’s back from his first submarine voyage. He really appreciates the sky now.

Honey. Grated orange zest. Cinnamon. Allspice. All-purpose flour. Whole-wheat flour. Baking powder. Salt. Baking soda.
More cinnamon. More allspice. Vegetable oil. Butter. Sugar. More honey. Two eggs. Milk. More orange zest. Vanilla extract. Almond extract.
And I even left out all the 1/4 teaspoons and 1/2 cups that make it SO MUCH MORE MIND-SPINNING.
My cousin sent me an email with the 22 ingredients for Cranberry-Honey Spice Pinwheel Cookies yesterday. I knew what that meant.
He was bringing me my wagon.
MY HAY WAGON! For hay rides at the Party on the Farm! (Are you coming?)
The wagon is a little wider than I expected. It will be hooked up to the tractor, the wagon piled with bales, and we’ll be driving it back and forth from the barn yard through the goat field and back. I’m going to have to take out a section of fence (temporarily) so I can get it through to the goat field because the goat field gate is too small.
But that’s okay.
That’s what fence is for, taking up and down. (Right? No? Oh, well. It’s just one section.)
I have a vision. I’m going to get some paint this weekend and I’m painting that wagon.
Because, the weekend before the retreat, I have NOTHING ELSE TO DO. If you don’t count checking my list for what list I’m supposed to check. But. The wagon looks so sad and drab. It needs paint. It needs me! It needs Sassafras Farm stenciled in white against barn-red paint. Don’t you think? It will look so right with the hay bales.
In any case, of course I got right into the kitchen and whipped up 22 ingredients and made my cousin those insane cookies.
They were delicious. If you want the recipe, I’ve got it here: Cranberry-Honey Spice Pinwheel Cookies.
I’ll be back with a wagon-painting update!
