Don't say you haven't been warned...

Behold my 'Battle Dress"! I was off to tackle the various and sundry piles that are the rites of spring. The dazzling socks are 'tick repellent', although I will probably have to re-treat them this year. I am determined to NOT get Lyme's this year. Perhaps the color, alone, will repel them.
On Friday we had this:
We had piled up about five inches of snow before it turned to sleet, and then to rain. By Saturday morning, it was gone - just a foul memory. April, she is cruel. I took Peanut to the vet for his monthly allergy shot. When the vet tech came to the car to pick him up, Peanut launched himself into the guy's arms. He was taken aback, given that most dogs hate the vet's office and all vet personnel. Not my P. However, he was greatly subdued on his return, having received a shot in the ass for all his love overtures. We then made our way to the farm to pick up our vege order. Lovey was so relieved and happy to see us - she takes guarding the house very seriously.
I have appointments today, Wednesday and Friday, with a cheese run for Marianne tomorrow. At least it will be easier to keep track of what day it is. I'm going to pull out my copy of "Ugly Little Greens" to see if I can come up with a recipe or two that call for nettles. It looks as though I am in for a bumper crop this year (as in every year) and I'd like to make something more than soup. If any of y'all have nettle recipe ideas, do share, please!
