Homemade Yogurt Update

I wanted to give you all an update on the homemade yogurt.  I did like it very much.  I think it is the best recipe I have tried so far.  I am going to try using pureed fruit next time as I think it could be more fruity.  I used peach jelly with this try.

Not much going on here today.  School, cleaning and laundry as usual.  Our temperatures have dropped considerably.  25 degrees this morning when we got up.  It is about 30 degrees right now as I type this.  Needless to say, we do have a fire.  I do not like cold but I do like having a fire.  This way, we can cook on the wood stove and not have to use the electric stove.  Saving money, yeah!  Well, I don’t know exactly how much money it saves but I do enjoy doing it.

Well, I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

A New Day

What a difference a day can make.  Yesterday the snow was falling.  Today is equally as beautiful but in a different way.  The sun is shining and as you can see the sky is a georgeous blue.  It occurred to me that sometimes life is like that too.  Each day brings a different type of beauty.  Sometimes we have to look deeper to find the beauty and sometimes it is easier to find.  I believe God has a treasure for us each day, it is our responsiblity to search and find it.    Today will be another snuggle in day.  Church at home.  Maybe play some games with our girls.  Fun stuff.  Family stuff.  The things memories are made of.  I love days like these.  I wanted to tell everyone that I now have a comment link on each post.  If you want to leave a comment just click on the link.  It is always exciting when someone leaves a comment.  Thanks Dave for fixing this for me.  I want to take a minute to let you all know what a great son-in-law I have.  The Lord did a great job picking him out.  He is always ready to help us (no matter how dirty the job).  I just wanted you to know, Dave, we’re glad you are part of our family.  Okay enough of that, I don’t want his head to get too big.  Todays menus is venison roast cooking on the wood stove and also some beans.  I think maybe biscuits and fried potatoes would be good with this.  I try to cook on our wood stove as often as possible.  I think the food tastes better and of course it saves on the electric bill.  I’m always for saving money.  Well, I think I’ll get busy enjoying my day.  God Bless.
