Lesson 1224 – Bandage buddies

With winter comes a lot of winter cooking. Soups, stews, casseroles, I’ve written about some of the recipes our family has tried over the last few freezing months.

With all that chopping and cutting also comes this:


It’s inevitable. Even when you’re careful, vegetables like carrots can be harder than you had anticipated and the knife slips. It happens. In this particular case, it wasn’t a big deal. As a seasoned mama hen who still needed to get dinner on the table for the flock, I quickly dressed my finger with a non-hello-kitty bandage and pressed on with my stew.

But this is what happens to your bandage when you still have kids living at home (and it was a high schooler who decided to do this.) When they see that you have a bandage, they take your finger and they make you a friend.


Why have only a bandage when you can have a bandage buddy?

Also, join me on Facebook to find out more about the flock (children and chickens) and see some pretty funny chicken jokes, photos of tiny houses, and even a recipe or two.
