bottle rootbeer

Homemade root beer

2 gallons warm water
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon yeast
3 tablespoons root beer extract

mix everything together and poor it in a bottle, and let it sit for 12 to 15 hours.
Put lid on tight, and place in fridge.

I didn't like it. Tasted like yeast. Like a bad burnt marshmallow. Mom says it should have sat longer before tasting.

But if you let it get too warm it will go BOOM!

until next time ~Medium

Rainbows and sand plums

Picture 1132

I saw a double rainbow yesterday. Mom couldn't get a picture of that. So she got the single.

Yesterday we went to the farmstead and picked sand plums. I don't like them. They are growing next to the drive way. There was a lot and Large got the most because he was the first one there. My brothers threw plums at me. It hurt.

After we picked plums we went back up to the house. I helped mimaw and pawpaw put the couch into the truck.

I found a gopher snake. It was 3 feet long. It was all gray. It was over by the cattle fence near the pond. It was under a rock. I saw it going under the rock, then I ran. I didn't like the snake because it was too big, and I didn't want to stick around.

I am still pulling ticks off of me today.

Picture 262

I was 4 in this picture. A long time ago. But I still catch snakes. We have a lot of snakes here.

I few weeks ago I caught a garter snake for our friend Hooter. It was his birthday and he likes snakes. He got it to eat a small mouse and he said it was a keeper.

I like snakes. But they bite. When I first tried catching snakes, mom says that I came running to the house crying, a baby garter snake had bite my finger. She said it was still hanging from my finger when she came outside.

Soon were getting rabbits we don't know if it is 20 or 60. So were building a rabbit hutch. Is it a big hutch. It is made of scrap wood and fencing.

I am excited about the rabbits. They are loose in someones barn. They are going to catch them, and then bring them to the motorcycle shop were my dad works. Then we will bring them home.

I like rabbits. I am going to use pelts to make a hat and mittens.

Creek Flood

my brother and his girl

This picture is our creek, that's my Uncle and aunt in the picture.

We were at the farm, taking cows out. I went to the creek with my brothers. It had been raining hard. We could barely see the road as we went. We made a dam at the creek. Mom told us to stay away from the creek, I was trying to tell my brother Large not to go. But he went because he wanted to, he kept ignoring me.

The water rose really fast, I was not scared. We made a pathway in the water. I wasn't sitting in the water, Large and medium where in the water, and Large's friend. The island was covered by water.

Large's friend held on to a tree branch. The water tried to take him away. We left because Large started to leave. I didn't hear mom yelling for me. Mom was mad when she found us by the house. She had been searching the creek. She was crying, she was scared that we drowned.

I won't go to the creek again when it's raining.

Sorry none of us have posted in a while, we really couldn't get on the computer that much. We'll what has happened since the last post was on the 7nth of july was my birthday and i got a gerbil and earlier he bit me and drew blood on my left thumb. He got out so i picked him up and he bit me. My mom said we might go and bye a ball for him to run around the house in. I also had to clean my room. i think the last time i cleaned it was around Halloween. But still not as dirty as my brothers' room. Now I'm starting to think Vanderbelt (my gerbil's name) just doesn't like me. I mean by the way he stares at me when i wake up. It is like he is trying to suck my soul out while I'm asleep and when i get up he crawls back in his cage and just hates me for just being alive. thats all for now.
