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.
