  • Re: How do you celebrate when a student graduates from High School.

    We had cake & ice cream with extended family, & they received a few presents.  Some went to the school parties, others did not. Their choice, their expense, as they all had part-time jobs.

  • Re: Dehydrating foods

     One of my favorites is "old" bottled apricots, peaches or cherries. The time spent in the sugar syrup in the jar makes them incredibly sweet & chewy & delicious.

  • Re: Prayer Circle 2014

    Surgery went well & now I am home healing. Thank you so much for the prayers. DH gave me a blessing, & told me in it that I would be clam during the surgery, because I would feel the Lord close to.  I was & I did.  Wonderful experience, feeling the Lord so close, but the recovery is quite painful, so I am blessed to have ...

Harvested lettuce, spinach, Swiss chard, chives & parsley.  I already have a large bowl of lettuce & spinach in the fridge that we are using, so today's ...
