This is a view of our drive toward the road. That is smoke in the air, coming down across Oklahoma from brush fires in Kansas. It’s not too bad, not enough to make my eyes water and burn, but I feel for anyone who has to work outside today. If I stayed outside very long I would be grabbing for my asthma inhaler for sure.
We slept very late this morning and somehow baking biscuits just didn’t seem to be the thing to do, so we had English muffins with coffee instead. I think I may fix breakfast for dinner tonight. I’ve got everything we need to make salads for lunch later.
My chicken broth simmered all night and I strained it this morning. It’s covered and chilling in the fridge so I can skim the fat off of it before putting it in smaller containers to freeze. If I had a large enough pot I would can a few jars of it. I may ask Audrey if she would like some of it. I already have a quart of broth in the freezer as it is, but I can’t pass up the chance to make a fresh batch.
The chiropractor worked on my bad ankle yesterday and after a walk out to the road and back a few minutes ago I need to put some ice on it. Guess I’ll grab one of my knitting projects and see if my hands will tolerate some knitting time.
Have a great Thursday, ya’ll. The weekend will soon be upon us.
