Random Tuesday

Here are some totally random photos the Bag Lady has taken recently. The first was taken on the short weekend camping trip the Rancher and the Bag Lady embarked upon recently (she has been trying to find time to put together a video of that weekend, but she's been quite busy with other things!)


Like this! These are the first (of many) beans she picked. These were consumed for supper that night, unlike the rest, which were processed into mustard beans, or put in the freezer for later:


And, believe it or not, this is a picture of the flock of geese who stopped for a rest in the pasture recently. They were on a training mission, teaching the young how to stay together in preparation for their upcoming journey south. The Bag Lady thinks they may need just a wee bit more practice, because when the flock took off, one of them must not have been paying proper attention. The Bag Lady and the Rancher watched the whole group fly off, then one poor lonesome soul almost a minute later came along, honking and flapping, trying to catch up!

(There's no point clicking on that one to try to see the geese - the Bag Lady was quite a distance away, and had the camera on maximum zoom, so it just gets blurrier when you enlarge it! You'll just have to take the Bag Lady's word for it that those are geese. They are! Has she ever lied to you?)

Oh, brekkie looked good. Campfire cooking is the best.

Nice looking beans. I have to go out to the big garden today and see what Mike's grown for peas and beans.

That poor goose getting left behind. It pays to pay attention.

Oh, I miss camping! Nothing beats cooking breakfast over a campfire. :)

POD said...

I could smell that burned toasty stuff from here.

I clicked to enlarge, because you told me not to. I'm rebellious that way.
And I want to come camping with you. You guys make good breakfast!

dfLeah - brekkie WAS good. There's just something about cooking over a campfire that makes things taste so much better!

Haleybird - that's so true! Cooking supper over a campfire is good, too.

POD - those were what we call Toad-in-a-Hole - eggs fried in a hole cut in a piece of bread. They are best if they are a little burnt!! :)

kcinnova - there were sausages and bacon to go along with the Toad-in-a-Hole.... it was very good!
You are such a rebel! Bet you couldn't tell anything more about those geese when you clicked to enlarge, could you? :)

That looks wonderful!

I used to tell my kids,
"The burnt-er the better." (since I'm not such a great cook.)

Perhaps I should have used a campfire, then I'd have had a good excuse.

Have you lied? ;)

the Bag Lady said...

Sparrow - cooking over a campfire the the only excuse for burning food! :)

Georgie - never! Well, hardly ever. :)

Your geese look remarkably similar to my turkeys. Only beige.

Mary Anne in Kentucky - either that or your turkeys look an awful lot like my geese! :)

MMMmmm...haven't had Toad-in-a-Hole in a long time! So, jealous. Couldn't tell from my cell phone the other day, then forgot to come back and comment.

the Bag Lady said...

Reb - they were very good. Even if they were slightly well-done - they're better that way, right?
