The Doctor was out to Lunch!


It’s been tough to keep up with life this month. It all started with a sore shoulder which radiated downward until it hit my wrist and fingers. I tried to be a hard nut and stick it out no matter the agony. Finally I hit the emergency room. The verdict was that I needed an […]

My Flowers are Gorgeous


The last two years I had poor flowers. I began to think it was the soil I was using. It was the cheapest thing I could find. This year I experimented and used 1/2 of that rich (in dollars) Miracle Grow dirt. I mixed the two (cheap and expensive)  50-50. What a difference! The plants were at […]

Baking it


This wasn’t supposed to be a long-drawn out process. Well…yes and no. You have to spend time with Sourdough to make it ‘sour’.

Dry Washer Detergent


I’m still learning about this laundry soap. My washer is downstairs in the basement. It’s cool down there. The liquid laundry soap I made gets thicker as it cools. By the time it arrived at the basement temperature it was cool enough to not be cool any more. I couldn’t get it to pour out of […]

More Dead Birds


I’m so discouraged. I think I lost 2 hens because I let them out to early. It was still cold. With little feathers they didn’t have much cover but I thought they’d have the good sense to stay inside if they weren’t warm…NOT. The dog came dragging one in that looked like a messy rug…and […]
