I received a gift card to a book store for Christmas and I have been pondering what to get with it. I actually went to spend it once and could not make up my mind, so I just left empty handed. I’ve had several near purchases, but every time I would tell Tony what I was thinking of getting, he would persuade me otherwise. ahhhh!!! (side note: never ask your husband to be your accountability partner.) I also did not want to get a book that I could borrow from the library. So today I thought I’d take another stab at trying to make the big purchase. Over an hour later, a phone call to grandma to check the library online, and the decision was made! I scurried home to check the Amazon reviews of it. Ta-da! Nearly five stars–yes!
“Made from Scratch” is about a 26 year old girl that moves to a hobby farm and records the daily adventures. Gardens, chickens, fresh bread–I love it! I once told Tony when we were talking marriage, that I could be an old spinster on a farm. (Glad I got married, but it would have been a good alternative. At least for a few years…and in good weather…)
Heading out of town for a few days. Going to a shower for my cousin’s baby–Ava Rae. I made her a brown/pink/cream baby quilt, and a onsie. Hope she and parents like it!
That book looks good! I’ll have to go check it out.
