Horrible picture of me but you get the point :) I scored a used costume so was able to keep it within the budget! I am all ready to dance in our first show next Saturday!
Today we are heading to a Birth Management Seminar (for sheep) just in time for lambing. It’s just me and hubby. This is the farmer’s romance I guess :) I’ll take it!

The February 2011 Daring Cooks’ challenge was hosted by Lisa of Blueberry Girl. She challenged Daring Cooks to make Hiyashi Soba and Tempura. She has various sources for her challenge including japanesefood.about.com, pinkbites.com, and itsybitsyfoodies.com.
I was quite nervous about this challenge. As much as I pride myself on teaching my children to enjoy different foods (and enjoying them myself) I am a farm girl at heart and this didn’t have the stick to your ribs feel to it.
Imagine my surprise….we liked it! We really liked it!
I am not quite sure my tempura came out just right but all in all in was a successful challenge and I am glad I gave it a go!

I hear we have some warmth coming our way though :) A heat wave of 42 degrees!
The cows are looking forward to it! Okay I am too.
I hope you are keeping warm!

Can you believe that it is February already? Today I decided to get in the mood of the season and made a Valentine Treat Box for The Ironcraft’s Weekly Crafting Challenge.
It is just the right size to fill with a bar of handmade soap, some bath salts and a bit of candy.
We just finished January’s Challenge (Selfish Knitting). Now February is here and it’s time for Entrelac!
Apparently Entrelac is not as complicated as it looks (this will be my first time trying it.)
If you would like to knit along (and join in on the contest) the details are here.
