Hello Friends!
.
Do you remember my blog post (here) that I wrote back in November about how hard the winter months are for me?   And even though I had so many good intentions and so many helpful ideas from all you wonderful readers, by the end of November I felt myself slipping into that awful state of wintertime blues.  My husband and I have joined the local gym for three months every winter with the hope that we’ll drop some inches and make the long evenings a little more profitable.  And every winter is a big fail.  I hate working out in the gym.  Could there possibly be anything more boring?  But the last day of November found me at the gym, signing up for another 3 month contract.  However, here is where it all changes.

Cast Iron Cooking {And A Giveaway}

I love cooking with cast iron.  I grew up watching both of my Grandmothers and my own Momma cook with it.  As a matter of fact I’ve already told my Momma that I would like to have her cast iron and my grandmother’s cast iron willed to me!  Because is there anything better than 75 year old perfectly seasoned cast iron cookware?!  Smile!  My daughter has watched me cook with it all her life and now I love seeing her love and care for her cast iron just as much as I do mine.

Make Something!

My post today is about gifts.  As most of you know that follow my posts here, I try to gift home-made as often as I possibly can.  I really believe in giving from the heart, and for me that usually means making something!  Unfortunately sometimes that also means that I don’t gift to as many people as I would like.    However I’ve also noticed that even the very simplest of home-made gifts are treasured.

Hello Friends!

.

For those of you that have been following along with me here you probably know that I am a Spring and Summertime girl!  And every September when people around me are talking about how excited they are about the coming of Fall and how they love everything about Fall, I just choose to keep my mouth shut.  Because really, who wouldn’t LOVE Fall???  But I do not.  And the only reason I do not love it, is because it means that my beloved Summer is over.  And Winter is right around the corner.  So I go into Fall sort of kicking and screaming.

Hello Farmgirl friends,

Hasn’t this weather been crazy the last month?  We are in Tennessee and felt some of the effects of both hurricanes and I can only imagine what it must be like for those of you that were right in the thick of it.  My thoughts have gone your way continually.

We have had such a gorgeous summer of rain, humidity, and beautiful days.  Along with that comes so many flowers that my daughter and I feel like we’ve been working around the clock to keep them harvested, the flower stand stocked, as well as the garden weeded and mowed.  We’ve been harvesting sunflowers that are 8 feet tall and our shoulders are just killing us!  BUT… that’s not what this blog post is about this month.  It’s about CORN!
