I've started making homemade yogurt. I could almost kick myself for not doing this sooner. We eat a lot of yogurt at our house. The day often begins with a smoothie and I can eat tons of the stuff with just a little honey or jam mixed in. We're also... Continue reading

In spite of the "No Intruders" warning, I dared to interupt their strategizing and they were forgiving enough to pose for a few... Continue reading

We've been enjoying Christmas break but now it's time to get back to work! Time to get the laundry caught up, and the floors mopped and the cabinets wiped get the picture. But most importantly it's time to hit the books. Hoping that nobody's forgotten how to read or... Continue reading
