Today's Update - 1 Aug 2014

Just a short blurb to let everyone know that all the usual suspects have been updated today in addition to the late additions from last night.  Arm is still sore as all get out but getting better.  I was hoping for a little rain today so I wouldn't have to hand water all of my new plantings but that didn't happen.  Not to mention it was a tad and more on the other side of warm.  About like wading through warm soup most of the day.

I also added some interesting videos to Mother Hen's Recipes.  I've run across some that are very interesting while doing research for stories.  Most I have tried and those I haven't are on my to do list.  One of the more interesting ones that I posted was how to pickle and can wild thistle.  I particularly enjoyed noticing the bowie knife the young woman narrating the video had.  It was a thing of beauty.  LOL.

Finally something I thought you would find interesting.  Marriage in the Middle Ages:


  1. Thank you for the many chapter updates especially done when you were most uncomfortable. They are such a pleasure to read. Thanks for the video links and recipes. .

  2. Thankyou so much Kathy. I find that after I learn about all the bad things going on in the world, I desperately need a lift. Your stories provide that time to escape and get my head back on right. Have a good rest of the weekend.
