Today…May 18th 2009

Outside my window…A nice, warm and spring-type day!

I am thinking…About the garage sale we are having in two weeks!

I am thankful for…Spring flowers

I am wearing…My yellow jumper with daisies on it.

I am reading…Psalms, Proverbs, Hosa, and Ezekiel. No other books…for now πŸ™‚

I am creating…Homemade sour cream, a tatted bookmark and an Edwardian apron for outside!

One of my favorite thingsPlanting gardens!

For education this week…Science, history, copywork, 4-H, Spanish, spelling, grammar, etc. πŸ™‚Dave Ramsey’s "Financial Peace School Curriculum" is finished!

A keeper at home skill I am using…Developing good relationships with my siblings, and making sour cream and such! πŸ™‚

A spiritual lesson I am learning…Prayer

A godly character trait I am working on…Patience


Scripture I am memorizing…Psalms 138:8


For the rest of the week…Dog club tomorrow night, cello lessons on Wednesday, getting stuff ready for the garage sale, llama meeting Thursday night, cello recital Saturday and I want to get more sewing and tatting done.

A picture I’d like to share…(or two!)


The sour cream I made on Friday. We go through lots of it!


Half of the tatted bookmark πŸ™‚ I’ll post finished pictures when it’s done.

    What wonderful looking sour cream! Can you tell me more about making it? Do you use your own goats milk? We have two dairy goats right now (and two babies soon to be!), but we are having a couple of problems with the one of the them. We thinks it's worms….we do an herbal wormer (from Hogger), but it wasn't seeming to work. Probably because she has WAY to many! We bought a "regular" wormer from a farm store and it's seemed to help. We'll be back to using the Hogger herbal wormer soon, though. *smile*

    I've always wanted to make cheese from our goats milk! Maybe one day I'll learn how to do it. Have you ever made yogurt?

    Have a wonderful day!

    Hmmm….I'm wondering why the link isn't working. I'll have to go look into that in a few minutes. Sometimes computers are the most awful things in the whole world–you know?

    Wow! Really?! What an honor to be chosen as "blog of the week"! Thank you so very much–I'm flattered!

    Have a wonderful day!

    In Christ, Tessa
