10 days later it looks like this.  Amazing!  Things are really popping out here and I am so glad.  Monday and Tuesday, I had to help Hubby with the electrical at the the job site.  Today, I am very glad to be here at home.  We are hoping to get some outside work done this afternoon after school.  I’m not sure though.  The morning has been chilly with lots of fog.  The fog is lifting now and the sun is starting to lighten things up.  It is looking hopeful for outside work.

I wanted to share with you all something I just recently purchased for our kitchen.  It is called a butter keeper.  Are any of you familar with them?  Well I just love it.  I love using real butter but do not like the fact that it is so hard to spread when kept in the fridge.  Well, this butter keeper allows me to leave the butter sitting on the table without spoiling.  And it looks cute, too.

Here’s how it works.  Every couple of days, I put cold water in the bottom of the crock.  The butter then stays nice and cool but spreadable.  I really like it. 

Well, it is time for me to give a history test.  I hope you all have a wonderful evening and God bless.

 

Pears

We have been blessed to have quite a few pears given to us.  Do any of you all have any pear recipes you would like to share?  I usually just can them like apples but I am always looking for new things to try.  One thing I want to do is make juice this year.  Anyway, the girls and I will be working up pears tomorrow.  Today, I helped Hubby.   We textured the ceilings on the job he has been working on.  They looked really nice. 

I have a question for you ladies who have chickens.  Last week we were getting 8-10 eggs a day.  Yesterday and today, we got one each day.  What do you think is going on?  We did have a couple of days that we didn’t feed them the layer crumbles.  We had all kinds of scraps from the corn.  Do you think that would affect their laying?  I’m just not sure what would have happened. 

Well, I’m tired and it is my turn for the shower.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

Growing Up

This boy has definitely grown.  I’m not sure based on the past year if he’ll ever grown up but he has certainly grown.  He is a very playful pup and has brought lots of love into our house.  (Lots of other things too-but we won’t go into that.)  Things have been busy around here for the last couple of days.  Saturday I went grocery shopping while Hubby worked on clearing out some stuff from his wood working building.  Sunday was church.  Then early Monday morning we decided to make a trip to Grundy to see George’s Mom and Dad.  We didn’t get back home until a little after 10:00 that night.  Long day.  Yesterday was piano and I attempted to move that mountain of laundry that had built up.  We had to dry everything inside.  It was very overcast, chilly and windy.  Today promises to be better.  The sun is shining already.  Hopefully we can use the clothesline today.  We have 5 baby geese on the pond.  Big excitement.  I hope to get a picture of them today so you all can see them.  Our rhubarb is ready.  I think I will make some strawberry-rhubarb jam.  It’s one of our favorites.  Well, I think my crew is hungry.  I better get some breakfast going.  Take care and God bless.
