Hello ladies!! I know it has been a while since I made a post but I have been having technical difficulties with my blog. My thanks to Dave for getting me back up and running. I’m still having trouble with my pictures so no picture today.(Picture Added – Dave) Well, we have been busy here this week. Monday, I helped Hubby at the farmhouse. He started on the plumbing this week. Under the bathroom, the crawl space is about 18 inches. As you can imagine, not my favorite place to work but someone has to do it. Then on Tuesday, the girls and I went down to Jessica’s. They all have been sick, even little Miss Katie. Hopefully, though, they are finally on the mend. Wednesday, I helped Hubby again. Difficulties with the plumbing caused us to decide to finish it up Monday. (Didn’t hurt my feelings any). I’m sorry, I guess I am complaining a little but of all the jobs I help him with, plumbing is my least favorite. Thursday and Friday, the girls and I stayed home and worked on things here.
Well, that’s about all for our week. I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
Honey Vanilla Coffee Creamer
Makes about 2 1/4 cups
Whisk together cream, milk and honey in a medium saucepan over medium heat. When the mixture begins to steam, remove from the heat. Whisk in vanilla. Pour into a glass bottle and store in the refrigerator.
Hubby likes cream in his coffee. I usually buy this from the store. Today in my laziness, (I did not want to drive into town) I decided to see if I could find a recipe to make our own. I went to my favorite place, Google, came across this recipe and many, many more. I chose this one because I had all the ingredients. (Remember I do not want to drive into town). I’ll test it out tomorrow morning and see if he likes it. Anyway, I was very excited about finding this and couldn’t wait to share it with you ladies. I”ll let you know if he likes it. Enjoy your day and God bless.
P.S. I apologize to http://www.deliciouslyorganic.net. I did not mention that this is where I got this recipe. I have been asked to remove the recipe but if anyone is interested in getting it you can go to the above mentioned site.
This is a far off picture of the graveyard that is on the farm. This picture was taken from the top of our driveway.
This is a closer shot. Right beside the graveyard is a hay barn.
I’m sure Jess will recognize this picture. On the left of this picture at the bottom of the hill is an old farmhouse. Dave and Jess lived there for several years before they moved to N.C.
Today will be school as usual, though we have not gotten our early start. We are running a little behind as Hubby and I did not wake up as early as usual. Saturday, we worked on cleaning up an area where we used to have the swimming pool. This was a major job which required almost 5 hrs. to finish. We had the back of the truck completely full of trash to haul to the dumpster. We had to cut the pool liner in pieces. It was too heavy to move in one solid piece. We kept the parts of the pool we thought we might could reuse. We were all muddy from head to toe, including the “bumpy truck”. But I am so glad to get this job done. Vicki and Quintin are giving us some strawberry plants and we plan on putting them in that space.
Yesterday’s menu at church was pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, green beans, cole slaw, beef strogonoff, key lime pie and cookies. We started our new study on Galatians. I think it will be a very good study. I better get busy or school will be starting really late. Enjoy your day and God bless.
