Mom got a potholder loom today.

Caleb and I aren't sure how useful this handicraft will be, but they're fun to make.

Salad Dressing and Eggs

Sweet and Sassy Oil and Vinegar Dressing
This is the *BEST* salad dressing ever! It tastes a bit like Dorthy Lynch. The recipe is...
1/2 cups sugar
1-2 tsp. dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 cup hot water
1/4 cup white or cider vinegar
2 garlic cloves minced( garlic powder works too )
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Put all ingredients into a jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake well. Refrigerate or leave at room temperature if you can't wait. It's good both ways! Enjoy :0)

The chickens are done molting and are laying eggs at the usual pace again. I love the blue ones.

A Day in the Life of Emma ( Ashlyn)

Jane Austen's Emma was on these past few weekends and Ashlyn loved the clothes and hair. She decided to dress up ,as she does nearly everyday, as Emma Woodhouse. (I helped a bit) She was exited to go to a ball...
but the dress was "choking" her.

Time for tea and cream (as she calls yogurt "It makes it much more fancier" she says.)

A time to relax and write letters.
All in a days work.
