Aunt Julie and Uncle Raul came to visit this weekend and left today. We miss them already! We enjoyed chatting and learned a great deal about Josh’s heritage. Josh’s ancestors were Irish farmers and Native Americans. He holds the values of the Native Americans very dear to his heart. He is very kind to animals and respectful of the world around him. He also looks Irish and is obviously into farming! This explains a lot! Thank you, Aunt Julie, and be sure to keep us posted as you make more discoveries!
During lunch on Saturday, our dear friends (owners of Elvis) stopped by and gave us the most wonderful gift bag of goodies from north Georgia! We couldn’t resist trying the Apple Spice Pecan Honey Butter with some homemade bread:
All we can say is YUMMY!! Thank you! You are too good to us!
I am rediscovering knitting and have a little scarf project made with scrap yarn. Now that I’ve remembered how to do the basics, I’ll finish out this scarf (and give it to Goodwill) and start on some fun projects.
We are also planning our garden this month and are so excited!!! We can’t wait until we can plant!

What a terrific night of watching movies and eating homemade pizzas (Mediterranean and BBQ chicken) with our wonderful friend, Heather! Here are the pizzas before attack:
This morning, we tackled the koi pond out front. Josh pulled on waders and cleaned out the leaves and scrubbed the fountain tubing.
Here is the after shot:
I’ll add a page on the website soon with pizza recipes and step-by-step photos. Promise.

My blogging hero, Rhonda Jean, signed the guestbook on the website! Do check out her wonderful site, Down—to—Earth, with great insights into simple living, gardening, cooking, crafts, and more.
For those of you who have seen the movie “Waking Ned Devine,” you are aware of fruity soaps being a great gift for someone who needs relief from “pig smell.” Anyway, at Josh’s Aunt Julie’s suggestion I made some soaps to sell or rather to give away in hopes that someone would like them well enough to order some! Here they are:
Pizza night tonight!
