I'm Back! :)

I’m back from taking my break! It was nice to have some time off the computer.. helps perspective sometimes, I think. During this time off Tobin and I got away for a few days. It was very nice. It was also good to get home and get back into the swing of life again… always so much to do.

The nice thing about getting away is you come home with fresh thoughts and renewed enthusiasm. I also came home to sunshine! Finally after so much rain and gray skies it was great to have some sunshine here at home in the last few days.

One thing that excites me is getting my garden going. My tomato starts are huge! I have had to repot some of them 4 times now. It is still a little too cool out at night to put them in the garden. Right now I am just setting them outside during the day and bringing them in at night to get them adjusted to the real world :). Tobin got the garden rototilled again yesterday so it is ready to go. I hope to get some lettuce and a few other things planted today.

News from the kitchen… My sourdough starter is still alive and well. I have big plans on using it again. The next plan is sourdough rye. I have the sourdough out tonight and it is currently proofing… tomorrow I make the bread.. I will keep you updated.

Leanne is now home from Denmark. She had an incredible visit with Emily. Enjoyed it very much but is glad to be home. She came home and had to quickly jump into her next 3 online college courses.. a few days late due to arriving home after they had started. She has been working tirelessly to catch up and get ahead of the game.. so far so good! If all goes well she hopes to have her degree by fall time.

That is all the updates for now .. will be back with more from the homestead soon! :)
