I planted some amaranth and alfalfa to see how they grow. After making savory amaranth fritters (the recipe on the back of Bob's Red Mill amaranth), I thought I'd look for more recipes on their website and found that they suggest planting a few seeds: http://www.bobsredmill.com/organic-amaranth-grain.html
Yesterday, we got a surprise in the mail...from a friend of mine who is stationed in Uijeongbu, Korea.
I got a scarf from her. The girls each got a stamp (I think it's marble) engraved with their name in Korean. SO many cool candies, made from rice and chocolate and Pocky sticks...also tea and coffee and a mug with my dad's name on it!!! Little Paul gets the mug. He loves it already.
Fill me up!
And she sent this cuddly little suit and hat for him.
I started another cream colored slouchy hat, this yarn is a bit thinner,
Good for Ewe chord and I love it, although it's not as soft as the baby
alpaca yarn (the sad thing is, I crocheted it all up and there wasn't
enough yarn, I bought it while were were in Portland, OR and I really
want to use up what I have without having to get more, so I took it out
and am trying to figure out if I can make it tighter).

I've just started Land of Love and Drowning (it is the book that our library discussion group is going to talk about next). I just finished The Woman who Walked in Sunshine yesterday. It was another sweet story. ♥ Speaking of sweet stuff...we are getting ready for Valentine's day. My sister got Paul a set of bowties and this red one has little hearts all over it.
A friend of mine sent a mini scrapbook, one page for each month...I'm enjoying filling it up!
We got a bit more snow yesterday. It wasn't good for sledding, although we tried...
It was a beautiful morning, but chilly...only 19' Fahrenheit. Hopefully, I'll be helping out every Friday morning milking Sally, the Jersey cow. Or is it Guernsey? What's the difference?? I looked it up on Wikipedia, and they are both a reddish colored cow. We got to take the milk home.
Okay, back to work!
My turn to give some milk...
Hannah playing the piano with Paul...he really likes it!
