Well, the summer is going pretty well.
I dont think I have mentioned this before (but I may have). We have been watching a fun video series- Road to Avonlea. We get the DVD's from the library and have been watching season by season.
They are nice because:
1. We can watch them whenever we get a chance (after we get our chores done).
2. Brilyn can can understand them (mostly).
3. They don't give her nightmares (although Aunt Hettie is a little scary).
4. They allow me to maintain my (possibly unhealthy) addiction to anything connected with Anne.

Okay cool, so when I was looking up the link to give you for this TV series, I saw that they just made a prequel movie Anne of Green Gables: A New Beginning. Let's hope it is as good as the book prequel by Budge Wilson.
Just a reminder, if anyone would like to go the the Anne of Green Gables picnic with me at Present Tense Book Store in Batavia, it is on Saturday, August 16th, at 1 pm. We need to RSVP by August 9 if we want to attend.
Okay, enough about Anne for now.
I found some GREAT goat milk soap at the new Farmer's Market in LeRoy. It will be every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. It's nice, but not very big yet. But, judging by the turnout, it will probably grow to be big and famous. Anyway, about the soap, it's from Harper Hill Farm in Darien and works so nicely. Ah, my face is so happy that I am not putting salicylic acid on it everyday anymore.
And lastly, I would like to make a rag rug for my NEW kitchen floor (that's a story for it's own post). So, if you have any old flannel sheets, shirts, nightgowns, etc. please pass them down to me. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with that.
Here's a rag rug in case any of you don't know what I am talking about.
Okay, I'll tell the floor story and update you on my flourishing garden next time, I have to go work in the garden before my kids wake up.
Love ya!
XOXO

Hi Joce~It was nice to get an update from you! It's funny to hear about your obsession with Anne..I have a fairly new obsession with everything Amish. I started reading a great series of books by Wanda Brunstetter recently and can't wait to get the next one. I also love goat's milk soap, I've only ever used stuff from the store though, there aren't any good farmer's markets around here that I've found. I'm glad your garden is growing well, mine isn't looking too healthy..but the local deer aren't going hungry if you know what I mean--ugh. Take care, Carol

Ooh, you got spammed.

I just heard about Harper Hill Farm. It's about five minutes from my house, and they sell yummy goats milk, too. Now I'm going to have to take a trip up there.

Glad to hear you're well!

Do you know of any good video series at the library that would appeal to four boys?

Rebz said...

Hey all-
Carol...have you read the series by Beverly Lewis that starts "The Shunning?" It's pretty good, and the Amish setting is accurate.
Pamela...It makes me a little jealous that you live so close.
Mel...I will have to think about that one.
XOXOX

You could come over and we could take a field trip. But not this week. We are almost doing nothing this week, totally on purpose.

Carol should get her some boys and have them pee around the perimeter of her garden. I only have one little boy, and he is doing a fabulous job of pest control.

Kathy Kuss once told us that placing human hair around a garden will deter animals. Being a hair dresser, she has tons of it:)
