Stand By

Mar

The blooms on my tulip tree are coming and going so quickly!

I’m hoping that I’m going to be able to tell you about some really exciting news this afternoon. Please check back! I can hardly wait to tell you!

UPDATE: I’m going to have to wait a few more days until I can tell you! (A few pesky details.)

My Little Runner Girl

I took this picture at track practice yesterday evening. Morgan, of course, is in track. Because she has to play everything. She’s the one in front, grabbing the baton. This coming week is college spring break here, by the way. (Not for high school–that’s in April.) So, Weston will be home! And Ross will be home sometime in April, I hope. He has his orders–he has been assigned to the USS Scranton in Norfolk, Virginia. (Yay! Only 7 hours away from mom.)

In other news, I’m all loaded up with supplies, ready for fencing, and it’s supposed to rain, which could also interfere with Buttercup’s arrival this weekend. Cross fingers for dry weather!

Oranges in Triple Sec (BBB)

Mar

This is the latest recipe I’ve tried from the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving. I love this book! It has photos, which means I will probably make all the recipes with photos first because they all look so delicious. The other day when I posted about Strawberry Lemonade Concentrate, someone asked for the recipe. I’ve got that recipe and the Oranges in Triple Sec on Farm Bell Recipes here now:

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
