I tried to make Miss Emily some "big girl panties" midstream, but the pattern really isn't a good one. I fudged and tinkered, but I'm not at all happy with the results. Of course, I'll keep plugging away, but I'm down to only boy prints and blues in the soft flannel for trainers. Oh well...she won't care and I can adjust the pattern with that and get the real girly stuff later.
Now I'm moving on to cutting 2 nightgowns in the right size...don't ask. Then a couple dresses for the older girls to whip up tomorrow.
I think we've done good. Yes, what I should be doing is binding that quilt...I know, Mom. I will. I'm not skipping that. I'm just on an assembly-line roll with these dresses right now :o)
The yard is finished but for a touch of weed-eater trim workaround the building and dog runs. The chickens are relocated and happy campersnow at the barn coop. Feed barrels relocated to the milking room.
We even have dinner prepped and good to go...a sort of stir-fry with a broccoli blend, some rice and some ground turkey. No recipe -- just sort of winging it on seasoning it up. The cookies are even finished and tucked away! Peanutbutter cookies are absolutely perfect with whole wheat flour because they easily take on the peanutty flavor :o). No one would know they were made with Prairie Gold...except we switched to total wheat flour a few months ago and they know I don't even have 5# of white here anymore.
There's no word on an actual move for us yet-- thought I should clarify that :o) We will be making at least 2 trips monthly to fellowship and do service, and we'll keep our eyes open for land. We have a couple leads to check out...something like 62 acres with house and some buildings for about $140k and another with a few less acres and fixer-upper about $130k. Andthere's always the prayer of finding a lease with option done personally instead of bank loan. We don't want a bank loan at all.
As to a newsletter if we go bush...LOL, never thought of that. Figure I barely have useful ramblings (blabberings) as it is, could I fill a couple pages with something useful? Maybe if and when the time comes, The Lord will tweak my ear about something to share. :o)
Back to the view of my day...
