"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

A Window to My World

The final leg of the drive I have when I go to town

Snacks I made for Bill to take to work
Rice Crispy Treats~Buckeyes

and Caramel Corn
I made parsley honey which I then used in place of karo syrup 
8 cups air popped corn(I have a Hot air popper)
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup cane sugar
1/4 cup karo syrup parsley honey
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda

Melt butter then add the brown sugar and  honey.  Add the remaining ingredients.   Put popcorn on cookie sheet~drizzle butter mixture on and stir.  Bake in oven 200F for about 30 minutes.

Duct tape to the rescue again.  Plumbing issues and not having the right
part mean a temporary repair until a trip to town the next day. 
Important side note~thanks to my sweetie for being a jack-of-all trades
as you can repair pretty much anything.  


A friend asked if I wanted to join her challenge of making meals from 
the freezer/pantry/fridge.  Here's one gathering I put together.
I made soup.  I used frozen squash medley from the garden(2 cups), canned veg stock,
canned carrots, 
the greens from green onions, 
2 seeing potatoes, a few cloves of garlic,
 a cup of frozen corn,
 celery that nearly had ended its shelf life,
 and not pictured~2 cups of frozen turkey from Thanksgiving, 
and 1 qt of canned tomato juice. 
Not the best photo, as I almost forgot to snap a photo of the finished 
product! Bill added half of the juice of a lime per bowl and told me
it was delicious.


  
And at the farm gym I worked on the Kindling machine


Which yielded a great workout with not two buckets
of Kindling~but a total of Four!! 
I skipped the Splitting Station as the split ax is half my height
and 

instead headed to the load and pull station. After two trips on this 
station I confess I was ready to conquer the world~ Kidding. 

I was ready for a nap!

That's a peek into the world of Me...and my life.
Have a lovely day!
