We won't be going to the farm again this weekend. Steve has a ski trip next week so there is a lot to do at the shop before he goes. He needs to get away & do what he loves to do. We have been so busy lately. I miss the farm. New Years weekend was the last time we were up there. I am reading about gardening in between other books to get me through the farm withdrawal I am feeling. I just started a book called "The Seasons on Henry's Farm : A Year of Food and Life on a Sustainable Farm". It is about a farm in Illinois beteen Peoria & Bloomington. I am only into the second chapter but I'm hooked. I'll do a more complete review after I'm done with it.
Nothing is going on with the townhome as of yet. Still no showings. It would be helpful if the foreclosures & short sales would sell & get off the market & not drive the prices down. Oh well. We aren't in that much of a hurry with the shop not on the market yet. I did get the women's bathroom painted at the shop. That's a start. We still have other things to do to, but have been concentrating on the work that is coming in.
Here is another "living foods" recipe that I've made several times & is really good . Enjoy!
