No Escape

I realize some (probably most) of you can do it but I'm having a hard time reading.  I can read how to books but I can not for the life of me get into a novel.  I'm relieved that I can watch a movie and enjoy it.  That's it though, the concentration is totally gone.  I've done this before when there has been some sort of catastrophe in the family but to think, when I need an escape the most right now, I can't read!  

I hope that my means of escape will come back soon.  I'm so happy when I can read and venture into someone's else's world, if only for a few hours.  For now though, I'll read my how to books and be thankful that I'm learning something new.  

Am I weird or is this happening to anyone else?

Free Kindle Books for Today 4/3/20 and What about Worms?

What about the worms?  



We decided a walk in the woods and shoreline fishing at  a  lake nearby, was in order yesterday.  Don't worry we made sure  we were social distancing the whole time.  Thank God for now they are letting us in the parks.   No, we didn't catch anything and yes, we froze to death near the shore.

We did run into a problem with our plan, where to get worms?   Now we have dug for worms in the garden before but that's  after it's been plowed and it's a bit  warmer.  The worms we found were very small and hard  to  find.  That seemed to be right up youngest grand  child's alley though. She loved it.

We came back home and decided to move our patio furniture around and boom right  under  the potting bag there were 10 big worms.  Not wanting to let them go to waste I put them in a old cool whip container and decided to start a worm bin.  Of course I didn't know how, so I went to you tube.   My favorite go to is MI gardener  and he showed me how.  There are many tutorials on there so, you  can pick you favorite if you want to do this too.

The worm bin is in the garage in a dark place by the freezer.  I had a nightmare last night that they all escaped and were now in the freezer.  To tell the truth, I'm a little afraid to go and find out this morning.  Maybe I should move them.

Free Kindle Books for Today 4/2/20 plus Cutting hair, and a Longer Stay at Home order?

Cutting Hair

When I said, I'm going to learn how to cut your hair, it kind of freak my husband out yesterday morning. He said something like, he would rather put it in a ponytail.  Well...  Just give me a chance husband.   I said, I can watch youtube videos to learn how and he finally said ok.  It was that point in the conversation that he turned the tide and said he would trim my hair after I got done with his.  That shut me up.  Nope, it's not going to happen.  Just to let you know that we will be some wild looking people after this lockdown.  

Extending the Stay at Home Order

So, I heard this morning that the Governor Whitmer of Michigan wants to extend the stay at home order for 70 more days.  Not for sure what they will agree to.  No matter what is decided everyone, we have to get tough and stick it out.  We can do this!

I was brave and wore my first mask to the school bus to pick up the kids lunches.  They said that I rocked the look.  

Some sad news for Michigan, we now has 9,334 cases reported to date and 337 deaths.  A lot of great people have passed away, young and old alike.  I'm praying for all those grieving families. 

We have to stay vigilant.

Free Kindle Books for Today 4/1/20 Plus Mixing Powdered Milk

Mixing powdered milk.


I have had a hard time getting the husband to adjust to powdered milk but then I found that I was mixing it all wrong.  I watched a great youtube video and remembered this is exactly how Mom made it back when I was a child in the 60's.  So, I decided to add 1 tsp of sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla and put it in the fridge overnight.  Then I mixed that with about 2 or 3 quarts of regular milk.  This has really helped to make our milk last longer.

The grandson loves it when I mix it with nestle quik, daughter loves it with cereal, and I've used it for both baking and making yogurt with it this week.  I still have a problem with the husband sticking his nose between his eyebrows when he drinks it, so he just drinks the regular milk. I think he just has too many bad memories ha ha. 

It's  really helping extend our milk and keeping us out of the store.  We need to flatten the curve! 

Did you get this book? 

I wanted to bring this book to your attention again today in case you didn't get this book downloaded yesterday.  I started reading it last night and it's a gem!  So many helpful hints that we can still use today.
