Surely you will all forgive me for my continual neglegence of posting on not only the family blog but also my own shop blog. I don't have any good excuses (mostly because my new goal is to not say, "I'm busy!" because I hate that excuse). I have simply not done it recently.
SO....I don't have any REAL news. We still plan on going out West sometime but don't know when, and I promise to give all of the pertinent people as much notice as I possibly can.
But I figured that I would throw a few pictures up anyway.
Here is a teaser of what I am posting on my shop blog: The toads are Barrett's parents.
Here is Weasel and Barrett, of couse, and Ursa chewing on a bone...of course. Note the Christmas tree that we finally took down a month ago. You can see the Mr. Toad doll in the upper left hand corner as part of the tree decoration.
This is me hugging my oven which I LOVE! Since this picture we have hung all of my cast iron above the stove.
Anyway, I hope that you all get a kick out of these photos. You sure learn a lot being married, you learn a lot "going without" electricity (it will be a full year this June) and you learn a lot traveling to different places and meeting different people. I would love to share all that I have learned, but I think it all sounds like cliches' that EVERYBODY has heard a hundered times....but it doesn't make them any less true. But I think it is mostly the type of learing that must be done by each person for themselves. If I ever think of a way to share what I have learned; not only about cooking on a wood stove or learning the best way to pee outside without filling up your shoes--but more about morals, integrity, true worth, and a good attitude--I will share it. Till then, I'll just keep learning.
Lots of love!
