I am progressing slowly on the kitchen...basically it looks to be a room a month while still maintaining a life. Here's my first cupboard. It was filled with canning jars so I am packing them away in boxes and putting in the basement. They don't need to take up precious cabinet space.
Last week I made ham and bean soup and corn muffins and today I'm making a pork loin roast and some kind of pumpkin dessert I think.
it was about a 16 year old homesteader taken from real events pieced together from various journals.
I read another book my daughter brought me and this was the other extreme. It was a children's book but this time it was a little too young for me. But I know why she gave it to me as it mentions Iowa and the specific towns where we lived and the Hawkeyes! LOL! It was a cute story though. There's another one about the Button family that I will read some other time.
I'm about a day behind on my 3 rows a day for the blanket..........
