Love is in the air & Chocolate Caramel Pie!

Is this not precious? I mean lovebirds!! Come on!! Get a room, already!!!
Why did ya come in here looking like that?

Yes you guessed it. Breeding season!!

I know everyone else on here is experiencing kidding season but why would I want to be like everyone else? I am always a day late and a dollar short!!! You know kinda off beat!! Off the beat or something like that! The truth is that I got a really late start last year by trying to find a buck and that in turn messed this year up too. I can't say that I didn't like not having to be worrying about kidding in the cold weather though!! July worked quite well!

I can say that I like warm weather! We had a beautiful day and of course I took advantage of some sunshine to get the laundry out! .........and to get the chicken coop cleaned out, some spray painting outside, cleaning porches etc etc etc....... and playing in the mud!
Better than snow and ice!!!!

I just love this picture! Still playing with my camera ;-)

The guineas loved the warm weather too! This picture looks a little tropical with the green bamboo! We'll just pretend that is sand in the background, OK????
Watch your step, sandspurs ya know!!

Now for the celebration I made this pie! I took pictures but I decided that since the pictures don't do it justice that I will save you from having to endure them. The pictures and the pie look pretty rough. However it looks pretty darned good too. It's in the fridge chilling as we speak and in about 30 minutes I plan to be ready for dessert!!
I have something to celebrate now. I mentioned a couple posts back about a phone call that I received with a job offer and an interview scheduled for the next day. I got the job offer!!!! Woo wooooooo!!!!
That's not what I am celebrating though. I am celebrating the fact that I came to my senses and declined the job offer!!!!! Double woowooowooooowoooowoooo!!!! I know I probably shouldn't feel that way about it but it is like a great big black cloud settled in on my shoulders right about the time I made it to the interview and did not leave for 3 days until I made up my mind not to take it!! Why mess up a good thing? We are certainly not going hungry! Actually far from it!!
So come back in about 30 minutes and we'll have coffee and
Chocolate Caramel Pie!!
Of course I could have been a good blogger and typed out this recipe for you but I am not a good blogger and this is how I do things. OK?????? Shut up and go make you some pie if you won't come and have a piece with me. Better hurry cause Danny looks hungry ;-)

Pie update:

Don't go get your shoes and coat on quite yet. No need to hurry over. It was just so so because the crust tasted almost burnt. It was really dry and sorta scorched. Didn't look like it so I think it was probably not good to begin with cause you all know I couldn't up mess up a pie if I tried! Wrong!!!
I baked it on an airbake cookie sheet too. ??????
The filling, however is to die for chocolate. A cross between a chocolate mousse and a chocolate cheesecake! Smooth and heavenly! I will make this one again with a different crust!

Cute goats! The pie sounds wonderful. Yes, that dark cloud thing is a definite indicator that something is not right! I'm glad you made the right decision for you.

Kudos to you! What a lot of companies don't get is that the hiree is also interviewing the company and making sure it's right for them. Yeehaw! I'm proud of you. God is leading you in the right direction.

Is that really green grass??? We're not even dreaming about green grass up North yet!

"What loooong ears you have my dear!" Beautiful Nubians! They are my soft spot! How wise of you to not be expecting kids in the middle of January~ I'll have to remember that next year;))

Another great looking pie! You're going to get a reputation my friend!

Becky, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving comments. It's so nice to find like minded gals out here in blogland! Love the goats! I've always wanted a couple of fainting goats, don't know why really, but every time I see a video of them I laugh till I about pee myself!!! Can't wait to make it back here and snoop around some more!
