6,6 pound of liver, a lemon and a bog.
It has been a rather nice morning and noon despite the cold wind we’re having. But dressed properly no wind can destroy a walk with my dogs, but I was close to boiling when the sun started to shine every now and again. It does give more heat than one might imagine now in February.
I started the morning by going down in to my cold cellar to pick the one and only lemon I have on my lemon tree 🙂 I should have picked it a week ago but since it’s rather cold down there it’s still in good shape. I haven’t tried it yet but my guess is that it’s either so sour that its impossible to use it or not sour at all 🙂 🙂
After that I brought out 6,6 pounds of liver from the freezer so it could start to defrost. I have it in the oven at the moment and when it is done I’ll ground it down so I can put it in my dogs food. They just love it when I do like that and I guess the food gets much better nutrition wise as well. The livers come from older pigs and does taste a bit too much to use as food for myself but the dogs just loves it. I could give it to them raw of course but liver tends to be very messy if it is uncooked.
Like always on a Saturday morning we went down to the creek and there were lots of tracks from mostly hares, deers and foxes. But later today we went out on the bog and walked rather far this time. Bogs are treacherous if one doesn’t know where to walk, tree roots can grow out over deep holes so that they can’t be seen and it’s rather nasty to fall down in to one of those. But the ice is so thick now that there was no risk of doing that.
The bog (well it’s actually a lake they have lowered several times) is a nature reserve and one of my favorite places to walk around. It is so quiet there and even if my dogs and I makes lots of noise we still managed to surprise two Black Grouse hen, I think they scared us more than we scared them 🙂 🙂 🙂 Nova must have thought she was in heaven because of all scents she could follow 🙂 This was the first time she gone this far even if we actually turned back after a short while. Bogs are strange in many ways but I’ve never figured out how or why my foot prints always disappears. I can never find them when we’re walking back the same way we came.
The liver is soon ready to be ground down and after that I’ll take a nap. They say the sun will shine tomorrow and if it does I think we’ll walk even further out in to the bog, perhaps all the way to the small rest that still exists of the lake!
Have a great day!
