There has been a black tom cat on my porch this last week, and he will scratch and the windows and meow at me. This has a tendency to create a bit of a stir inside. He is smelling like a tom cat, and if he is still around next week I am calling my vet and getting him neutered. I don't care who he belongs to, if he is hanging out on my porch, I want him fixed. It will be way too stinky this spring.
This is a jug of water Kefir, brewing for
a few days. Then I take out the kefir grains and allow it to continue to ferment for a few days, and add flavorings, like lemon or cherry concentrate or fresh cranberries, like the one pictured below. The grains were dehydrated when I got them and it has taken a few feedings to get them going strong, but the last batch carbonated nicely. I am using it in my smoothies. It is full of probiotics. I also got my old sprouter out and am giving that a go again. It has been tucked away a long time.
Ramona is a sometimes lap kitty, but she loves to climb the ladder as much as Jean-Claude. I love this picture of him, because it shows his chest circle!
