Just the Highlights

I normally don't like to do a multi-topic blog posts but life has just been that way lately. A little of this and a little of that has made for some pretty full days.
More Handwork

I finished the hat and mitten set I have been working on for Harold. I thought they turned out pretty sharp looking. He has to grow into the mitts but at the rate he's going . . .

A New Addition
My coworkers, Steve and Angie, adopted a beautiful little girl from here in Brevig Mission. Some of the ladies from work threw a shower for her over the weekend. We are very happy for them and their baby girl.

Johnny's Musical Debut
As you may or may not know my brother John has quite the musical talent. Lately he's been writing some of his own music and recently made a recording of his work. Last week his first album, "Movin' On" which includes traditional and original music was released on iTunes. He's got a Bluegrass/ New Grass kind of sound. I think it's great but I'm a bit biased. Why don't you go ahead and get your own copy and see what you think. Psst!--> Click here to purchase.

Summer Plans
Summer plans are shaping up nicely. Plane tickets are purchased, reservations are made and our calendar is filling up. We will be in Minnesota the last week of May, then on to Guatemala for three weeks and back to Side Lake for July and part of August. We are looking forward to our journey and the chance to see our Minnesota friends and family again.

A Touch of Spring
Our Full Circle Farm produce boxes had daffodils for sale last week. Without hesitation, I added them to our box and enjoyed their cheery little faces for a while.

The Whole Hog
And last but certainly not least, we bought a hog . . . the whole hog. We've had a hankerin' for some tasty pork products around here. We finally took the leap and ordered the "Whole Hog Pack" from Mat-Valley Meats. I think we have enough to last us for a while now. 

What's the news in your life dear readers? We'd love to hear from you.

We'll miss you in Minnesota--bummer!--as we plan to be there mid-June.

I love the flowers. Maybe I'll buy some at the grocery store!

I've been so behind on visiting! I can't believe how big Harold has gotten! He looks so much older. Y'all really won't need any pork for awhile, lol! Your summer plans sound like a lot of fun. I hope your adoption speeds back up soon!
