Well, the April Fools joke is on me, as I look out the window to about an inch of snow.

Made more Blueberry jam and it turned out so good, so I can check that off my list. Learned I can make steel cut oats and grits in my Instant Pot and they are much easier than making on the stove top, plus they are creamier and taste so much better made this way.
Going Saturday to the city to spend time with family and work on a garden and chicken pen. Packing a picnic lunch of baked ham, salads and cake for an early Easter lunch. I just wish things were moving faster with this move, but now we may here for a few months longer.
Have a happy & blessed Easter

Crow Bar. I don’t know where you are but you made me laugh. Snow! Check out https://electroverse.net/ every day. It gets it right way more often than ‘offical’ weather casters.

Just hopping in to say HI and Happy Easter!
Crowbar, I loved the 6 inches of snow that fell here in Upstate and went skiing the next day! Still finding great recipes from my Vincent Price cookbook, I gifted several to others at Christmas. All the recipients loved the cookbooks and asked where did I run across such a treasure. Your name was mentioned.
To everyone, enjoy Easter!

Hi Loving Life!
Good to see you!
I did not get a chance to go XC skiing this year. I think I am going to put a set on my Christmas list for this year.
That is great about the cook book! Glad they enjoyed them, and I feel honored at the mention. Thank you.
Happy Easter to you too!

It’s been a little busy this week paring down on things that is not needed or wanted. I have some boxes packed that will eventually get moved down to the house in the city in a few months.
Have made very little progress in getting the shed at the house in the city ready for the chickens, maybe this weekend if the rain holds off we’ll be able to go down and work on it.
I read where pork prices will increase this Summer due to possible shortage, so thinking I will get a few extra packages of sausage and bacon and vaccum seal them before storing in the freezer.

Last year we assumed inflation prices would be going up, and are getting two hogs this year. One of us, and the other for friends of ours.
We get the piglets in mid-May.

We are past the snow think goodness. But have been having a lot of rain. Weather is hot a few days and then cools down a few days. Need to get garden going. Tomatoes need to be planted soon.
Have been working on house. I am getting rid of a lot of stuff. Sent a lot of food to our church food ministry. Way to much food for just one person. So redoing and going through all of that. Got the older food moved to kitchen, so I will get that used first.
Decided to have a huge yard sale maybe this fall. Cook books and other books as well. Dishes I never use and so much more. There is just to much stuff in this house and the attic and shed is loaded. So will be really busy going through and boxing up what will go in yard sale. Granddaughter and her boyfriend are going to help me with the sale. They are putting things in there to sell as well.
As I go through things it has been hard, so having good days and bad days. Still need to go through and pack up Dh’s clothes. Going to make a memory quilt from his t shirts and a jean quilt from his jeans. So just packing clothes up and storing them till I get the things done around here.
Started getting things out of china hutch so I can get the floor jacked up. Then I might need to jack up the floor in small bedroom where the food I canned is at on the shelving. Looking like the floor is starting to sag there as well. Moving some furniture around in a way that will work better for me.
