Up Date On Birthday Ice Cream

Just a short up date on the Birthday.  Joe, Holly and Luke are still at work or out getting Landen’s birthday present from the family.  I got him an electric ice cream churn.  I remember when I was in high school and the school cook would churn fresh ice cream every Sunday afternoon.  I always volunteered to help her because I loved to clean the dasher and I thought that would be something Landen would like to do for the family where Holly loves a good ice cream so much and he loves to do things for his mother.  There is no store bought ice that could compare to a fresh churned so just now Landen got out the churn and decided to try the ice cream while his mother was gone.  I stayed out of it until he asked for help cause I didn’t want to push him or make him feel he could not do it.  He read the directions and washed the whole outfit then wanted to know where the ice went and where the cream etc went so I came out and told him how the machine worked.  It went very well and in about 30 minutes the motor shut off on its own.  When he pulled the dasher out and we scraped off all we could he tried it and exclaimed how great that was.  Then we put the cover on and add more ice to let it sit for one to two hours to harden tho it is hard enough right now to eat so it will be interesting to see how long they wait.  They just pulled into the yard so I had best go and help.  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.

    It always was a big deal to get the dasher! I had to outwit four brothers by times!
