THE AMISH COOK
April is here, bringing us warmer temperatures. Monday was nice and warm. We hung all the laundry outside on the lines. By evening all of it was dry. How nice to be able to wash the clothes and put them away the same day. It is laundry day again today but it doesn’t look like we will be able to hang the clothes outside. It is rainy and very windy. I’m wondering if we could have a thunderstorm yet today. The frost in the ground is leaving more every day so hopefully it will be okay to get some early garden planted a few weeks from now. Time will tell if the winter weather is over.
The excitement last night was that daughter Susan’s pony, Roxie, gave birth to a cute little foal. Susan is still undecided what to name him. Daughter Elizabeth’s friend, Timothy, had his second horse give birth to a foal this week. He has another horse that should deliver soon. He has some frisky little foals running around on nice days outside.
Susan spent Tuesday evening at her friend Mose’s house. Mose’s sister, Marilyn, and some of her children were visiting from Iowa. Most of Mose’s family gathered at their parents house so they could all get to visit with her.
Daughter Verena and I have been cleaning out the kitchen cabinets. Things seem to accumulate and get disorganized from one cleaning to the next. It will be so relaxing once everything is cleaned for the upcoming church services we will host here soon. My sewing is getting pushed back again. Hopefully it can wait until the garden is planted, but all that depends on the weather.
