We went to Kentucky for a church homecoming, and took some time to check out properties near Irvine that we saw on Zillow. Somehow our GPS got confused in the mountains, but we found the property I had my eye on purely by accident. It is everything that I want - a view, quiet, and a small house. The only problem is that we aren't ready to retire for anot her couple years, and can't afford two mortgages. I hope the LORD will keep it for us!

Tomorrow Mia leaves for Germany and her family. It has been a challenging year for her, but she said she had a great time and made many friends. She is always welcome here!

Excitement today! The pellet stove went POP and clouds of smoke filled my mother-in-law's apartment. Luckily my daughter was there and called the VFD, got my mother-in-law upstairs and herded the dogs into a room. We plan to get rid of it and will be putting in gas. The house smells like a campfire.

I haven't posted anything lately but I guess everyone is busy too. My clematis is blooming and my white Lilac is almost done.

Because of spring break, I was deputies to go with our German student to Arizona where my sister-in-law lives. I've been a homebody for so long that I wasn't enthusiastic about the trip. But now I'm here I am enjoying the different type of beauty in the southwest. Today we took a short hike in Madera Canyon.

Next month one of our daughters will be moving from Florida to try her luck in Kentucky. She has given her notice and has been applying for jobs. Hope she gets a good one, our guest room is also my sewing room.

One of our hives died over winter. I cleared out the frames today and kept 2 to extract honey. We don't have a centrifugal force extractor so I smashed it and strained it into jars. DIY!

Wonderful news! A bathroom faucet was dripping so my husband and I decided to fix it ourselves. Usually we are like the three stooges when it comes to repairs but miracle of miracles, it is fixed!

After he goes to all this trouble, I'm reminded that I need to keep him.

That is quite creative. Lowell and I just go out to a restaurant but not this year.

Each Valentines Day, my sweetie gets take out from a restaurant and presents it to me and his mom (if she is with us, and being a mother's boy, she usuaLly is). This year he had our German student Mia to help him.

When I got home from church they had a pretty table set up in the sunroof with candles and a menu. We had a choice or egg or spring rolls, then egg drop or hot &sour soup, then chicken or shrimp with broccoli or sweet & sour pork with rice. We finished with a cupcake and fortune cookie. Then Mia played her violin for us. Best of all, in my sweeties opinion was leftovers were easy to pack up.

Its been a nasty day today, so I cooked Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup from Laura Knippers, rye bread, chicken salad, and crustless pumpkin pie. Tuna steaks for dinner.
The weather is supposed to be worse overnight with icy roads. We had a scare when my mother-in-law fell and bumped her head, so we are keeping an eye on her.

It has been quiet here in my home, sort of like Lake Woebegon, but my husband has been seeing a fox (or foxes) as he drives farther down the road. He wonders how they survive. Me, I suspect their instincts help them. As I looked out the bedroom window yesterday I could see the dark forms of deer as they crossed the snow covered yard. Oskar always goes with me when I feed the birds and wildlife and he chased them, but they returned for breakfast.

Yesterday a package arrived from Mia's parents in Germany. It contained Christmas gifts, a little kate but still appreciated. The blue can is Nuremberg levkuchen, there are glazed nuts, chocolate pretzels and Lindt chocolates,and loose tea, along with boxes of homemade cookies and candies. Most of the goodies I'll share with my co workers.

This is my 2021 resolution: I will start collecting the hair from my hairbrush every day and see how much I have for the entire year. The picture above is the old wad of hair, goodness knows how long I've been adding to it.

My favorite magazine besides MJF is Victoria. It is more of a fine-living magazine with and emphasis on England and France. I wrote a letter and it is in the latest issue!
