Today it Rained

Today it rained. I wasn't able to make the ground ready for planting.

Churned butter. Baked bread. Darned Jacob's socks.

Today's Tip: When churning butter, really get your hips into it. It takes the pressure and stress off of your upper arms and lower back. Churn until you think it is creamy enough. Then churn a bit longer, give or take.


God Bless,
Rebekah

I´m fascinated! Are your really an Amish housewife? I am a Mennonite living in Paraguay and since we have similar backgrounds, I am really interested in what your life is like. Can´t wait for your next post!

So, today I am sitting on the stand in church when the memory of this blog popped into my head. I had to turn my head so people would not see me laughing.

Oh you are hilarious! I just added your new blog to my list. I feel kind of guilty laughing at the Amish, though.

Paige said...

Castle, you are not laughing at the Amish, you are laughing at the nutty Emma.

Its all good, I am pretty sure that is the point!
