I didn't have a new photo for today, so I opened iPhoto, made the photos all small, closed my eyes, scrolled up and down and clicked. I selected this photo from August 30, 2008.
I love my Grain Master Mill and hard white spring wheat from Montana. Yes, I'm a "crunchy" Christian Farmer's Wife, who mills her own flour. We've even grown it and sold it, but when 2 of the 3 years were crop failures, we decided it wasn't worth the hassle of having it triple-cleaned and coordinating customers' pickups.
I hope to bake tomorrow or cook or do something fun in the kitchen and I WILL sew tomorrow, even if it's just for 15 mins.
I've restarted my walking regimen, thanks to a dear friend who is
hounding... encouraging me via text-messages. 2.5 miles for the week so far. That east hill is a killer!
And just a reminder, in honor of my 4th blogiversary, I'm showing my appreciation to all my loyal readers by giving away an Amazon Gift Card (denomination to be determined very soon). Just Comment On This Post by 11:59 p.m. CST Nov. 8th. I'll randomly draw a name and send out the gift card via snailmail, so be sure to give me some way of contacting you for your address.
And I'd love to know how you found my blog.
