Big storms last night and tornadoes on all sides......

Sock knitting.....I need to get back to it!
I am running behind today because the weather radio kept waking me up all night.  I slept in finally.   There were tornadoes to the west and south but we were lucky and it bypassed us.  Mountain Home got hit near the hospital but I have no idea how bad.  It's hard to get news here.  I'll find out tonight on the local news hopefully.
Today was much cooler!  High 50's but no 70's!  I went for my walk, went up to the town mailbox and mailed a letter.  I had washed a load of clothes last night so I hung them outside.  I made bread dough which is rising on top of the fridge. It was chilly and damp in the house so I got a fire going.
 I put another corned beef on the stove to cook
 and now I am sitting down with a cup of tea..............
and my crocheted scarf.............

I hope you are enjoying your Friday...I'll catch up with everyone tomorrow as I was way behind today getting up so late...........
Here are your "tidbits" for today........................Here's the link

I've tried sourdough and I love it.  I may give it a go again I just have to be careful as I don't need too much.............


and here's a little humor for today..........


Happy Trails!!!

  1. I am so glad you were missed by the tornadoes. We saw them on the news last night and it looks pretty bad in some areas. Your fire looks so nice and cozy. What a lovely place to sit and crochet. Loved your humor today. Those Legos are the worse thing to step on in bare feet! OUCH!

    Stay well my friend.

    1. I nver did find out about the storms. I should just check the internet. I think legos are the reason I learned to never go barefoot....that the fact that I have big feet and was always stubbing my toes! LOL!

    2. I have been married with my wife for 6 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to Dr Emu. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. You can contact him via email: Emutemple@gmail.com He will help you in anything you need and quick to answer once you contact him through his whats-app number: +2347012841542

  2. Sam! I'm so glad that the tornadoes missed you. Mandy said they had lots of storms last night too but the tornadoes ended up going south of them. Scary. And I want to move back to the midwest? Yep, if it means being close to Mandy and Piper it would be worth it. After all, we grew up with the weather. I guess we would get used to it again.
    That lego meme is very accurate! Our minister who is diabetic stepped on his grandsons lego and almost ended up having his foot amputated. It took almost a year to heal but thankfully it did.
    I just found a really easy sounding recipe for Amish white bread. Since that lady stole the one loaf of bread I had out of my grocery cart on Tuesday, I'm going to have to make my own soon.
    I put the deck furniture out yesterday and was able to sit outside yesterday and today to read my Bible. It got up to 59 degrees but in the sunshine it felt much warmer. I'm under no illusions. Snow is predicted again next week but I know it won't stick around and I'm so grateful that we have a place to go outside and get fresh air unlike some people around the world right now.
    Wishing you a good evening with a good sleep tonight Sam.
    Blessings and hugs,
    Betsy

    1. Someone stole a loaf of bread from your cart? How awful! Crisis seem to bring out the worst and the best in people! Glad you got to sit outside...fresh air nurtures the soul!

  3. It's the first full day of spring, but we, also, have a fire going. However, we are going to warm up again! Yay! The storms never developed here last night, so I got a good night's sleep!

  5. So glad you weren't in the path of tornados. We've been sleeping in late nearly every day. I've got to get on some sort of program/schedule but here I sit at my computer with less than 4 hours of sleep. I'm sure I'll get a nap in later.

  6. We had tornado warnings a few days ago. Now it's snowing here. Crazy. I'm crocheting cross bookmarks right now. I hope all this craziness settles down soon, so I can sell them too.

    1. If you sell them online maybe but I wouldn't count on any craft fairs taking place any time soon.

  7. Oh goodness! I'm glad you are okay. We've had some wet weather these past few days. Yesterday was warm though. I'm still trying to collect sap for one more round of syrup. I'm not sure I'll get it though. I've been catching up on a lot of things around the house. That's been nice. I've been feeding the starter for almost a week now. Hoping to use it soon. It was a little wet earlier this week so I cut back on the water and now she seems to be doing a-okay. Grocery stores are getting bare around here and the most interesting things that are disappearing are vinegar and yeast. I, of course, was looking for both of these things. I hope you are staying busy and healthy and safe. xoxo

    1. Oh not yeast and vinegar! Those are our staples! LOL! That's fascianting that you are making your own syrup! Do you have to boil it on the stove? I've only seen those sugar houses with the huge vats boiling away. I can't wait to see it!

    2. yes! The vinegar and yeast! I know, I know! Certainly there are more tragedies than that. Sigh. LOL. Typically, for the syrup, you would want to boil it outside but time got away from us again this year so it was boiled all inside. On the stove. It is a messy affair but it gets the job done. I think I ended up with about 2.5 gallons of syrup. I forgot to keep track of how many gallons of sap that is. It normally takes about 40 gallons of sap from a sugar maple (which is the kind we tap) to make 1 gallon of syrup. So I think we can safely presume we had at least 90 gallons of sap. Not bad for a few weeks worth of work. And we end up with a yummy product at the end. I hope you are hanging in there and taking good care!! xoxo
