Hello...for those of you wondering where the heck I am, I am outside. And I am very happy to be outside. But, it makes it hard for me to blog.
I am writing quickly, so if this post doesn't flow super well, that's why. I am writing quickly so I can go back outside. To weed my delicious onions, that's why. Pamela warned me this would happen, but here I am giving the preemptive "that' why" to every anticipated "why" question.

One quote: "Oh my goonness mommy, you just scared my hecks out of me." -Brilyn

One thing I am looking forward to: Camping out in our yard tonight. I especially like tin foil dinners (a meal of potatoes, burger, and onions cooked in a tin foil packet) and stockbrot (Snack made by molding bread dough around the end of a stick, cooking it in the fire, and then filling it with honey. Plus you eat it. Plus it's German.)

Word of the week: "Plus" (Anything may follow this phrase. It's like Ranch dressing it just goes wth anything.) -Brilyn

Cade has a word of the week, er, month for you too: "UP!" Must be pronounced with vehemence. Definition: "Something needs to change, I am not happy with the way things are right now." I really like that you can say so much with so little, so I may adopt this phrase-um- word. So, if I say "UP!" you know what I mean.

Brilyn has an imaginary friend. His name is Sean. Sometimes I respond to something
Brilyn has said, only to be informed that she was "talking to SEAN!" Let's just say I am really okay with this. Mommy's ears are tired. Actually, sometimes when I am cooking supper I say, "Go talk to Sean." And she GOES! That is really cool for me. I think I should get mommy-points for that one. Or, demerits, depending on your perspective.

I haven't written about Bailey because he is still more of a stress-inducer than stress-reducer. When that changes I will tell you more about him. I think it will change when we install invisible fence. I am looking forward to that. (Having it, not installing it.)

And now for my pictures:
Cade, being cute.
Brilyn, in my wedding dress.
A rainbow that actually landed in my was better than Lucky Charms.
Our beans are purple, but they turn green when you cook em, but if you rinse them in cold water, the water turns blue.
Brilyn likes the BIG blackberries we found growing behind a neighboring wheat field. YUM!

And now, ladies and gentlemen, I must go outside to weed my onions. And they are really good on ka-bobs. OH! One more thing...Brilyn checked a book out of the library... Emeril's cookbook for kids. (Only my daughter...she was like, "Mommy! This book is about FOOD!") So, in it there are some wonderful yummy recipes, and something new for the spice cupboard... Baby BAM!
Love, love.

So glad to hear the onions are coming along. I love your stories! Enjoy the outdoors now, for soon snow flies. I love Cade's hair and hope you, the family and the outdoors are doing well.....

What is the deal with the lottery spam? I only ever see it on your blog. How weird.

I'm happy for you that your onions are still in the ground. Mine? Drying in the garage. In the meantime, I'm sitting around twiddling my thumbs waiting for my tomatoes to ripen. I'd be eating bonbons if I was actually eating things. Maybe next week I'll eat again...

I don't know how I got on the spam list. It's annoying because I think I've got cool comments, but then it's just spam. I think I'll hop on over to your blog and see if I can't leave you a comment to help you be able to eat something.

Joce! Those beans look awesome! I've never seen beans like that. We froze about 20 quarts of the best sweet corn in the world last week. Any body up for bartering for sweet corn? Mel

Hey Joce,
I wondered where you were, figured you were outside.... wondered when you were going to come in for a breather! Like the idea of stockbrot (it has a name - yeah). I also heard of putting jelly in them - something new to try this year when the s'mores runs out! Love the beans! Got any funky blue potatoes? They're out there to grow - my Dad did one year. Happy harvesting! Happy camping!

Blue potatoes sound awesome! I will look for those in the spring.
Good to hear from you Rory!
