I am very glad that the farmers market season is almost over. I need to get my house back, store all the boxed used for hauling cakes and breads and noodles. Ready to put away the trays used for the tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, etc. Just ... Read more
Farmers market cancelled

We should have known this would happen but it is only a minor inconvenience. The market has been cancelled. Hubby did bake some breads and cakes but all can be frozen and sold next week. The veggies are a different story. I can make toma... Read more
We missed Autumn and went straight to Winter
Friday, October 11, 2019      13 comments

A frigid Friday to be sure. I think the temperature has stopped dropping and we had rain yesterday and snow flurries overnight. Maybe after this cold front passes, the weather will warm up. Time will tell if any of the flowers will survi... Read more
A day of transition
Thursday, October 10, 2019      17 comments

We are going from a day in the low 70's to a day of falling temperatures and maybe the 45 degrees I see now is all the warmer it will get. We did butcher those 14 old roosters last night after work and I am glad to be done. Not so happy ... Read more
A wintry forecast ahead
Wednesday, October 09, 2019      11 comments

The weather forecast is for snow this weekend. It appears that the western part of the state could see 5-20 inches of snow. We may see more rain than snow but still 2+ inches of snow is more than enough. We cleared out the garden and pic... Read more
The new week
Monday, October 07, 2019      16 comments

Monday has arrived and the week will be a roller coaster of temperatures and activity. We are expecting snow on Friday, which will put an end to most of the garden but then the weather will warm up and stay dry for 2 weeks after that. I... Read more

Now that some of us are experiencing the change of seasons from the heat of summer to the cool of Autumn, we reach for comfort foods like hearty stews and rich, thick soups, grilled cheese sandwiches and hearty breads. These, in and of ... Read more
October is a change
Wednesday, October 02, 2019      18 comments

The weather has gotten cooler and we are getting the fall rains that are normal but certainly not needed this year. The garden had just dried enough to get around and now, with over an inch of rain, it will be a slippery mess. The hubby... Read more
Our Sunday outing
Monday, September 30, 2019      12 comments

We went to church, then loaded everything up for a trip to MIL's. Arrived in plenty of time to make eggplant parmesan and fry the chicken drumsticks. Hubby's brother and wife would not be joining us for lunch but that was okay. After we ... Read more
September is slipping away

One more day and September will be over. MIL returned home on Friday and the worst is behind her. She is making a slow recovery but was able to enjoy her 91st birthday. We are traveling to her house this morning after church and staying ... Read more
A step in the right direction

MIL was well enough to be transferred closer to home and is now in a swing bed at the hospital 30 minutes from home. I picked up DH yesterday afternoon and he was able to sleep in his own bed last night. MIL will stay there until the doc... Read more
So many blessings!

MIL's procedure was longer that anticipated but she is slowly recovering and DH will stay with her until she is released. I have many tasks to keep my busy and so I can handle the long nights alone. I made sauerkraut last night and wil... Read more
A taste of Indian Summer
Wednesday, September 18, 2019      15 comments

It is not quite Fall just yet and we have a couple of warm and humid days ahead of us. It is good for drying out the flooded fields and giving us hope that the roads will be in better shape come winter. DH is taking his mother in for ano... Read more
The great divide
Sunday, September 15, 2019      15 comments

Our county and those to the north and south of us are now divided by a flooding situation that we have not seen before. Half of our school students, teachers and staff are on one side of the river and we are on the other. All of the brid... Read more
We have mud again

DH and I needed to wear our chore boots in the garden yesterday. I picked tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, broccoli and zucchini. He picked the last of the grapes. Too wet to pick the beans and we need to cut cabbage tonight. No school tomor... Read more
