What's a little frost scare anyway?

Ohhh my goodness, we had a cols snap here in Idaho. We had a freeze warning.... Ans boy did I move into action.  There was no way all my seelungs that I started from seed under growing lites were going to die on my if I could help it. So, all the gallonilk jugs that I've been saving, every extra sheet and box that I could find were used for plant protection. My Garden is 4000 square ft. It was no easy task, but each and every plant was protected. Happy to report that only one basil plant succumbed to the frost. Eveything else survived.... Whew, we dodged that bullet... Now to tell jack frost.... Don't come back until winter!!!

Finishing touch on Glamper Bunkhouse

I wanted a nice backsplash around the stove, was thinking silver. When I saw the Copper,I fell in love!. It looked warm and was so easy to install. I was so surprised, its actually plastic . Can't tell by the look of it. I also scored some great things at the Idaho Expo giant garage sale.all new cook ware for glamping,a Lasoo,steamer and a Awsome wood basket. I'm lovingy Glamper!

My first mothers day alone

Tomorrow marks a bittersweet milestone in my life. After being a mother for 30 years, raising. 5 kids, going thru all the trials And tribulations that life had for us.. tomorrow is my first mothers day without my kids living in the same state.... Funny thing is, I'm okay with it!. I actually feel liberated and free..... Without having to do the traditional lunch or dinner with the kids in wich most of the time I cooked anyway and often times bhad to break up a squabble or or patch someone up because they got hurt on a skateboard. Tomorrow is truly my day. I'm not doing any work, cooking or gardening... Which I do everyday. I've decided I'm sitting in the shade with a good book and some iced tea... And may take a nap while I'm at it too. Happy mothers day ladies... Put your feet ip too.

Winter is fast approaching... so I have been sooooo busy here.

Harvesing the garden and not to mention all the herbs. Tinctures to make, soaps to set to cure...  I do love my life here on this little plo...
