Month: April 2007

  • Sourdough and Spelt, Soaking, bread (food)

    I put my original sourdough culture in the fridge the other day, as well as a small batch of some from that which I had started to add only white spelt to. They both seemed to be going along fine, so into the fridge with them was my choice. I was reading further in my […]

  • Sourdough Culture (food)

    I picked up a package of Sourdough Starter at Whole Foods Market the other day. Today I started the culture. I had purchased a small bag of Red Mill Organic Rye Berries some time ago, to make a natural sourdough culture, but hadn’t used it (actually I had a couple of packages, might have used […]

  • Nourishing Traditions (hardback)

    I just added a new link to my sidebar “Links” area … Nourishing Traditions. Why? It’s a great book that I’ve had a long time (well, since it was published in the late 90’s). It’s a cookbook and more. I found today, while researching something on Migraines that I read in NT this afternoon, that […]

  • What Poetry Form am I?

    My #1 Answer: I am, of course, none other than blank verse. I don’t know where I’m going, yes, quite right; And when I get there (if I ever do) I might not recognise it. So? Your point? Why should I have a destination set? I’m relatively happy as I am, And wouldn’t want to […]

  • The Water Heater

    My previous post has been fulfilled. We had the water heater installed Saturday morning (April 14, 2007) and my –it’s been a long time since we’ve had HOT water … we just have been Reverse-Frogs (you know the idea about frogs, put them in a pot of cold water, and slowly heat the water up […]

  • Water Heater to be replaced

    Our hot water isn’t so good lately. Actually it’s been declining for awhile, and recently took a big leap downhill. We have a new water heater scheduled to go in on Saturday — and if that takes place … hot showers again (I mean “just hot enough” for “as long as one likes” within reason.) […]

  • April Freeze Damage

    I posted the other day about the “freezing weather” and wanted to post an update on the situation. When I looked at the back yard after the sun came up Sunday mornig it was obviously “frosty” out — the grass was not the bright verdant color that is usual of late. I waited awhile for […]

  • April Freeze and Gardening 2007

    From Friday night to Saturday morning it was supposed to be really cold, just below freezing. I don’t think that actually happened on our property … yes it was cold, but not quite to freezing, from how the grass and blooms and herbs and such look in our yard(s) as of Saturday afternoon … Now […]

  • Cloth Diapering #2 (baby)

    I wrote about diapering baby and my supplies not being known if they were OK or not, basically. Yesterday DH cleaned out the garage. It was really clogged up due to many different reasons, and it was a known thing that IF any diapers were in there, they were in the corner, which was not […]

  • Garden 2007 #1

    We are planning our garden for this 2007 Growing Season. I have 4 Red Pepper (Sweet Bell) plants to install, but still need to get the actual garden space ready. I have some peat starter kits to start the rest of my garden from seed. I hope to get those going today. I’ll make a […]

  • Middle of the Night Stuff

    I woke up at 3:30am –being pregnant –this is happening a lot, I sleep a few hours and then … (of course, normal times I, often enough, awake during the night, being an NT, a Night Owl, INTP, with my mind going a mile a minute, but being pregnant for so long now, it’s a […]
