Home Sweet Home

Dear Friends,

We are finally feeling somewhat settled in here in our new home, hanging up all of our beloved artwork and wall hangings, to make it more "homey" (and to cover the cracks in the walls).

We have been getting to know the nature in our yard, raising up a new batch of Monarch caterpillars from milkweed vines in the lawn, and discovering that Rose of Sharon seeds taste like fava beans. They're quite time-consuming to harvest, though!

Our cat Ginger has made a new "friend" in the neighborhood, who thinks that he belongs here now.

 We've named him "Puff," after the Dick and Jane kitten.

I hope that you have been enjoying your September. We keep our friends in the hurricane areas in our prayers, as well as those out West experiencing fires.


"Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home."

New Beginnings

Hello, dear friends!

You probably thought I dropped off the edge of the earth, but here I am, alive and well. :)

We had to move quickly out of our home in Kansas City so the landlord could get it ready to sell, and ended up staying with friends for over a month while everything was in storage (long story!).

We finally found a home that is in town, but closer to where we were hoping to move, in the country. We've only been here a few days, so everything is still piled up and in a mess, but it's good to be in our own place again, even if it is temporary. Life is the great adventure!

I hope that you have all been doing well, and I will do my best to catch up on your blogs as soon as I am able.

Wild Recipes for You to Try

Dear Friends,

 It is high season for foraging greens, and I have put together a couple of videos (with the help of my daughters) with creative ways of getting them into your family's diet.

Here they are!

I hope you like them.
