Sunday, June 30, 2013      12 comments

The numbers were a little better today. None of the Michigan cousins could attend this year but we have hopes they will be able to in 2 years. We had several new cousins that came so that was a plus for all of us. The food choices were exc... Read more

A much smaller group gathered today. The farmers are all cutting hay so they may be there tomorrow. I made my breakfast brunch casserole with my fresh eggs and goat milk. I added bacon, onion and shredded cheddar cheese. It was delicious a... Read more
Tapping into my reserves

Today started way to early with an ambulance run at 3:10 am. It was scary for the man's wife, as he has had heart issues for years. We made the long drive to his hospital of choice so he could see his own doctor. It was an uneventful trip ... Read more

I'm calling it sweat equity!
Tuesday, June 25, 2013      7 comments

As I told FROSTY99 on her page, all the inside and outside improvements to our home can be called sweat equity. The workouts and the physical labor involved are worth it. As I look at the garden now, I realize all the long hours are wor... Read more
The Mantis got me
Monday, June 24, 2013      13 comments

I am not talking yoga position here. The Mantis is my little garden tiller and it gave me a workout. Well, I guess we did it to each other. I had SIL help me get it started and running. Just a few minor adjustments. Despite the rain this ... Read more
Birthday party and bunny food
Sunday, June 23, 2013      14 comments

The birthday party started at 9 pm because this couple are dairy farmers and have evening milking to do. It was her birthday but one of the GC let it slip so the party was no longer a surprise. Everyone was still ordering food when we arri... Read more

We put those 2 little ones through their paces. We spent quite a bit of time in the garden after lunch. DH was burning garbage so GS had to help with that. We pulled almost a full row of radishes and cut off the black seeded simpson lettuc... Read more

Tonight was the night to invite DD and the GC out to the garden to pick the strawberries. What a riot! GS helped pick radishes, held the bags as I cut Romaine, Black Seeded Simpson and mixed variety of leaf lettuce. We made a haul. Now to... Read more

Tuesday, June 18, 2013      17 comments

Yes, it is official. DS signed the papers to sell his home yesterday. The couple put in an offer, he countered with a lower amount and they accepted. All papers were forwarded by email so he went to the office with me to print, sign and da... Read more
Pretty as a Picture!
Monday, June 17, 2013      17 comments

I thought to stop by DS2's house last night to pick some of his beautiful peonies. This may be the last time I can pick any if the house is sold. Last year they did not bloom due to the drought. I may blog more later but for now, enjoy! ... Read more
Why didn't someone tell me it was Sunday?
Sunday, June 16, 2013      13 comments

No, I knew perfectly well that today was Sunday. We went to church, coffee hour with the family and home to change clothes and head out to the garden. I ran the till through several open spaces, then parked it to help weed in the potatoes ... Read more
