I knew I was behind in blogging, I just had no clue HOW behind! Lots going on between now and last I posted, 6 weeks ago! I have continued to post over at Mother Earth News and you can see all of my blogs HERE.
The annual dessert auction to raise funds for needy Seabee families and to decorate the children's ward at the Portsmouth Naval Hospital came and went.
Our Autumn Larder Swap had us trading up a storm. My favorite this time around was the Monkey Butter made by my neighbor, Lisa.
Our church had a "Community Service Day" last weekend, and while my husband and youngest daughter were landscaping/raking at her school, my oldest and I sewed bags for kids in the foster system. It turned out to be more complicated than I thought (serger? I don't know how to do that!), but after fighting with my machine, Abby got to at least sew a few seams and get the feel for things.
I've been experimenting with using the Stevia that I grew, dried, and ground. My first attempt at homemade sugar-free chocolate pudding was a disaster, but I'm determined to figure it out!
And, I am in seed heaven, because the new catalogs have started to come in. The first one was from Baker Creek, and is a much bigger version than their normal one. It's on sale at bookstores, so you can run out and get one if you'd like.
I guess that's it in a nutshell. I'll have more posts soon, I promise!
