Will not get much gardening done today.  It has been thundering and raining since we woke up at 5 this morning.  We had planned to burn this morning, we still could get rid of our paper trash but had also wanted to burn the weeds we pulled from the garden along with other garden waste and some old posts that have rotted, but can’t when they are this wet.  If the sun comes out later I may still try.  Instead I will make bread today, then I don’t have to do it tomorrow.  I have to make bread every three to four days.  I just put the new web site for the Littlton Grist Mill on my Stone Ground Recipes site so if you missed it follow this one www.littletongristmillonline.com  If you haven’t tried their flour you should or at least try some of their mixes, the pan cake mix is great!  Add a half cup of blueberries and you have a very special treat or make them up as half dollar pancakes and they are wonderful for snacks or finger food.  It is the same mix just make them small about a teaspoon full at a time.  We used to eat those at the Georgia Mountain Fair.  Last night I finished a new set for the twins and am now back to a Christmas sweaters for Luke.  I still have quite a bit of my yarns left to will make sweaters for Gina and Dyhana for Christmas also.   Have a good day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
