Happy New Year

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I am so looking forward to this new year of 2011. I was born on Jan 1, so my birthday this year is 1-1-11. Kind of cool - hope it means good luck or something good coming our way.

We have had a rough 2010 with my hubby being unemployed all year. It was rough and we have learned to appreciate how our ancestors made ends meet, especially during the depression and during the war years.

Cooking, planning and serving meals take a lot more time when you are cooking from scratch. But it is also more rewarding for me too!!

We have our health, we have family and good friends, and we pray that hubby will be blessed with a good job this year. Please keep us in your prayers.

I have so many wonderful ideas for workshops, especially for VALENTINES DAY. Won't you contact me and let me share my ideas with you and your friends? I am ready to demo a workshop at YOUR HOME.

A new family member has arrived

We have a new.... grandpig. Yep, a grand pig. Well, a pig now owned by my grandson, Kyle. This little piggie is so darned cute!!

The first day they brought him home and put him in the pen at the FFA Barn and he squeeled with fear from being away from his mommie and litter mates. There is a bit older piggie in the pen next to him and Milton (that is his new name) tried to squeeze through the bars to get to this other pig. He got his head stuck between the bars and this made him squeel with pain and fear. He now has bruises on both of his cheeks from trying to squeeze through. Poor baby. He would not eat for 3 days and would only let Kyle come near him. He is afraid of everyone else.

Kyle is in FFA for the first time and this is his show pig. He will learn valuable lessons by taking care of and showing his pig. He will be showing him at the Montgomery County Fair this spring.
