These are the photos blogger wouldn't let me post last yesterday. They are photos of the homestead stew. Ang, I cook it in my cast iron dutch oven then I can it. Today has been spent getting soaps packaged and mailed out. Your soaps are on their way Ms. Robyn and Miss Diva says thank you. I also had packages going to Hawaii, Texas, Arizona, California and one to London, England. Think everyone is starting to shop for the holidays. I also had to deliver eggs because the ladies at the post office couldn't leave work to come get them so I made a trip back. Nice to live about 5 minutes away from everything yet still live so far out in the country no one can find your house! Got the best of both worlds. Now its time to get back outside and do yardwork. I almost cried today. The leaves are starting to turn and fall. I still DON'T have last years all raked and cleared away. Now I will never get caught up. We are so blessed to have huge oak trees shading our home and parts of our yards. The down fall is the leaves, as there are so many it kills our grass so we need to rake them. But falling leaves mean cooler weather is just around the corner. Everyone knows how much I love fall and decorating! Just have to count my blessings everytime I see a leaf fall to the ground. Have a great day!

Mmmm, Peggy, I just finished lunch but that stew is still making my mouth water! :) Can't wait for colder weather so I can make soups and stews. I love fall more than any other season, especially just when it begins to exhibit its arrival with the turn of leaves and crisp air in the morning and evening. Don't feel too regretful about your unraked piles from last year! When we moved here last December there were mountains of leaves to be raked. Under the bushes especially (and we have a couple dozen ancient lilacs), we found literally several years' worth of accumulation. I had only cleared out a few myself before the snow hit, and am now waiting patiently for this season's hot weather to be done with so I can get going again! Love working outdoors and the chickens love my company. God's blessings to you. :)

What a lovely blog! I followed a link to you from Echo from the Green Hills, and look forward to coming back.

A practical question...maybe I'm blind, but i couldnt find a way to get to your archives, especially the yummy recipes. Is there?

Blessings! Wendy

That soap will someday be famous! Still think you should add laundry soap to your etsy! That would be great! Perhaps some nice flaky stuff like Ivory with a hint of lavender??? I keep wanting to say chamomile but it's not that....grrrrr, hate that! Maybe you know what I'm talking 'bout! Glad you were able to get away for a bit. I know how that is. Just getting in a cool car can make all the difference. That soup looks so good. My mom doesn't put beans in her vegy soup, but what a great idea!! And now you're off to constructing buildings! You go girl!! xoxo (When will you be able to test Miss Diva...I'm so worried about her!!)
