Tasha Tudor August 28, 1915 - June 18, 2008

I am so sadden by the passing of Tasha Tudor. I have been greatly inspired by her life and example. Her contribution to children's books will be sorely missed. They were so very pure and innocent. The family has set up a Memorial Website in her honor.

15 Years

Today is our 15th Anniversary. It's hard to believe how quickly it has gone by. We celebrated last night with a wonderful Italian Cream Cake that I got from Not Quite June Cleaver. It was yummy. I was able to get some farm fresh eggs and I had soured some fresh raw milk to use in place of the buttermilk. It was incredible. I hate to admit it but I am more excited about the farm fresh eggs then I am the 15 years. I know shame on me. I have pictures of the cake that I will add later. My desire for celebration was to spend it together as a family doing something fun. We went to the zoo in Little Rock this past weekend and so I got my gift. I figure that June 17th was the start of our little family (6 humans and 7 animals so far) so I have always wanted wanted to celebrate it as a family. It was great. Today I also ordered seeds for fall planting and readied another area of the garden. Praise God for all his Blessings.

First Post

Well I have another blog but it is supposed to be a knitting blog but I have found that I am not one dimensional. I have many interests so I created this blog to showcase my many dimensions. Here are just a few of my interests: sewing, cooking, knitting, crossstitch, homeschooling, homesteading, traditional roles, and last but not least God. I am a Christian stay at home mom to 4 kids. I also love to read and learn new things. So I welcome all to pull up a chair and sit down with a nice cup of tea or coffee and enjoy my ramblings. I hope that you will find something to amuse you here.
