Babies, Cleaning, and Ground Cherries


Well...today started out with me cleaning once again. Only this time I am trying to clean out a room so that we can move our son into it. At the house we previously lived in we stored everything in the basement. Well this house...the basement is too damp to store things and the attic just is not conducive to storing items up there easily. So I am trying to sort through and clean items so my son can eventually move over to his own room and DD can get used to sleeping in a toddler bed.

I made a dinner for a family in our church today and took it over this afternoon. They have a darling little girl that I just got to see for the first time today. She is going to have quit the interesting life with three older brothers. I took over a Taco Pie, chips and salsa, applesauce, and I shared some sunflowers and broom corn with them.

On my way back home I stopped at a friend's house and picked some ground cherries. I hope to try making a pie with them. I have heard a lot about them and thought it would be fun to try. My friend wasn't fond of them and that is why she didn't mind getting rid of them. I hope to find them tolerable. If not I know I can give them to my MIL and she can take them to work. There are residents at the retirement center that love ground cherries.

Well I probably should get back to work cleaning out that upstair bedroom. Check out the new link I added under homesteading. This is a wonderful lady and she has a wonderful website too! Here is the link Down On the Farm

Did you see the post about her children helping her make soap and stuff? That is why I sent it. How did the ground cherry pie taste?
