Day Off

Apr
11


This photo (which will be appearing soon as part of another post) is currently my favorite picture of me. And not because of the me, but because of the way Poky is looking at me. Like she loves me. Donkeys are more affectionate than most, or any, other farm animals. Donkeys are very satisfying.


Today is my birthday, so I’m taking the day off posting. I’m baking myself my favorite super spice cake (see the recipe here). All the years I was growing up, whenever my mother asked me what cake I wanted for my birthday, it was always spice cake. I love spice cake. With cream cheese frosting, of course!

Already, for my birthday, I have been given a bunch of two-year-old asparagus plants (yay!) and a cherry tree (double yay!). And always, every day, I’m given the gift of you. Thank you for being here. I’ll be back to regular posting tomorrow.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUZANNE! I made a spice cake with cream cheese icing this weekend – though it was a mix & isn’t very good. I’ll try your recipe next time. Sometimes “quick” just isn’t worth it.

    You & Pokey both deserve a cookie. He IS precious.

    What an adorable pic. This is definitely a farm girl
    “glamor shot.”
    I was just looking at the pics from the last open farm day and remembering how much fun my father-in-law and my husband and I had. The picture that comes up on my husband’s phone when I call him is me milking Beulah Petunia. Thanks for the memories.
    Have a Happy happy birthday!

Thank you for that recipe, I think I smell your cake baking all the way over here. I like Brenda E.’s idea of the farm animals singing to you. I can just see them all lined up and singing away. Today is the day we should all celebrate “You”, and all you mean to us… and that’s a lot! “Celebration!” :snoopy:

    Happy birthday, Suzanne. I hope that besides giving yourself the day off from blogging, you get time to do the things you enjoy most. And I hope your farms chores ease up enough to let you spend time cuddling your furry and feathered friends.
    Many happy returns of the day! (I love that old-fashioned expression for wishing you a long and happy life.)

    Enjoy your cake. Spice cake was always my favorite also. I had it in a fancy restaurant once with pink fondant frosting. I thought “EEEwww” when I saw it, but it wasn’t bad when I tasted it although I’d still opt for cream cheese frosting if given my ‘druthers’.

    Cherry trees and asparagus are great gifts but nothing can top last year’s. BP has no equal (unless it’s her daughter).

    Happy happy birthday, Suzanne! Hope you had a really truly “day off” and everyone else did your chores for you.
    I’m sorry you had to make your own cake, maybe next year Morgan can make you one. Great presents! Nothing can beat BP, though.
    Today is my oldest granddaughter’s 29th birthday. How the time does fly by.
    See you tomorrow!

    I think trees are wonderful birthday gifts .
    When I was a child in West Virginia ,
    we had a Cherry tree in the back yard .
    The birds always beat us to the cherries ,
    but the cherry blossoms were enchanting .

    Joining the well wishers on this special day, but also writing to let you know that I made my first yeast bread ever today – yep, your Grandmother’s Bread. Thank you, thank you, it turned out beautifully and I just loved it! I have just come off of a gluten-free diet, so it was especially heavenly. Everyone should try it just once.

    I think Poky wants a big birthday kiss from you. Donkeys as well as horses are very intuitive.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
