Macy's Monkey

Just now, Ben and I were looking through tricks to teach Macy. Well, while we were trying to teach something else, we came up with this. Isn't it so cute? We called it "Monkey".

It was so cute I just had to show everyone.

Wondering about my future

Today I was wondering how my life will turn out. Right now I want to be a vet but the career changes every year or so. When I grow up, I want to live on a animal farm in northern New York. I want pigs, cows, horses, chickens, goats, dogs, cats, and so on. I want to breed White Shepherds. I want to do so many things in my life. Like: Go to the northern, southern, eastern, and western points of the US, and I want to travel to all 50 states. I suppose that's a little too much to do in a life time. Oh well, but I really do wonder what I will actually end up doing.

Persimmon season

It's once again kaki (or in English it's persimmon) season! If you don't know what a kaki (or persimmon) is, click here. It's a link to Wikipedia's definition. We have 2 kinds, shibu-gaki and ama-gaki.

This is a shibu-gaki tree and fruit.

The trees don't look the same. Just the fruit looks different. The ama-gaki looks like the shibu-gaki except the bottom is flat.

In the last picture there is my White Shepherd, Macy. She just turned 1 on October 7th! Happy Birthday Macy!


Here is a picture of persimmons at step 4 of 6.
Step 1: Core and peel
Step 2: Air dry
Step 3: Dry with a dehydrater
Step 4: Air dry again
Step 5: Dehydrate again
Step 6: Flatten

YUMMY!            I'm going to spend some time with my family. Bye!


Okay, just to make it clear. I will not publish weekly or most likely even monthly. Anyway, welcome to my surprisingly girly blog!
