 I'm feeling a wee bit better thanks to the good care I received from my husband. He made me stay in bed all day and did all my barn chores for me. He knew what to do since he  helped me yesterday morning because I was so sick with a head and chest cold.

I had chills today even though I cranked the heat up and had to wear a wool tuque to bed and had two very warm Magic bags in bed to try to keep warm. My husband wanted to take a photo of me wearing the tuque but on second thought maybe I looked so bad he decided against it, I don't know. I think he knows better than that. lol...

Remember the great Hubbard squash harvest a little while back?
My husband had sent two squashes to Ontario to my daughter Christine via some close friends and she just got around to process one this weekend and she gave the other to a friend.
This one is only 28 pounds. My husband gave one to the milk tester and it was 52 pounds. There are hardly any fibers and seeds inside. Maybe only half a pound.


This is 11 pounds of squash.

A lot of the goodies went in the freezer. And now she has placed her order for another squash next fall for her and friends,  I just wanted to share this with you and now I'm all worn out again and I'm returning to bed  for more rest.   Keep well everyone and thanks for stopping by.  JB
