I decide to make a simple breakfast this morning of succotash and homemade tortillas. We eat a lot of potatoes throughout the year. This year they are around $1 or more a pound. This price has to be some kind of record. That's a lot of money considering not so long ago that's what you could get hamburger for by the pound.
The dogs look for warmth in the winter. They will follow the sun around the house as it comes through the windows to bask in it's warmth. If the sun is not out or up they will find a bed or basket with blankets to warm up in. We keep our heater set around sixty degrees to save on propane. We are looking into wood heat to save money too. The heat rarely comes on during the day, because the sun is powerful and warms the house. It also provides 99% of our power. (That's for another post)
