S is for....

Update: Thank You Maria, I cannot believe I forgot this most important S....Sewing I love it and have taught myself so much, but there is so much more I can learn and want to learn.

Silly: see this woman sitting next to me, she and I can have the biggest laugh over the silliest of things. Her and I are working at the front table at our volunteering job. We love working together, she was my assistant at girl's camp and we laughed and laughed, so much so my asthma kicked in more than once. She has become a friend I know will love me no matter how silly I am, since she is just as silly if not more so!

Simplified: me above, this is me in all my simplicity, no makeup, handmade blouse, no styling of my hair. This is me everyday, everything else is to complicated

Squirral: Yguy caught this little guy over the weekend, actually he rescued him from one of the barn cats. He was stunned so he brought him in, and kept him warm in a kennel till I came home and decided he was recovered enough to be let go. He was oh so happy to be released.

Science Fiction: Love it! Have no idea why I just do. Issac Asimov I used to read and loved him. Star Trek, Star Gate all of them, I love.

Words from my husband....
supreme ruler, super, seductive, spooky, short-compared to my son and husband, yes I am

Yguy, worked yesterday at a friends house picking corn so our friend could get hay taken care of before the weather came in. He just bought two draft horses, of course I had to take a picture of them.

This morning's breakfast, I try to make something Yguy will eat so he has something on his stomach otherwise he gets a headache, sidetracked easily, etc. Even if its something little, I don't like to give the kids sugary cereals etc. Though when in a pinch for ideas I have gotten them poptarts so that the picky one will actually eat. But, I really dislike doing it I feel that if you get them on the road of junk now as adults it becomes a problem.As it is now for me, teach them while they are young the road they should take and they will stay on it. I was never taught that, so as an adult it is hard and my body is letting me know it.

Camping Bars (typed the way I cooked them recipe change etc)

3/4 c sprouted wheat flour
1/2 c quick oats
1/4 c flax seed
1/2 c butter softened
1 T orange zest
3/4 c sucanat
2 eggs
1/2 c coconut

Mix with a mixer all ingredients, Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Cut into bars.

I want to make this with honey, but this morning I didn't want to change it to much.

Hope you have a wonderfully blessed day.




  1. Dear Erika,

    Another fun list! You will love the silly song I just posted on my blog, if you like silly. :)

    I'm working on a letter to you; hopefully I beat the mailman today!



  2. I thought you will put 's' for sewing :) but silly is good too! :)

    Like Marqueta, I am working on a letter for you. I carry the last one with me, so that I can answer the wonderful questions you shared.
