Hi. I'm Gloria Yoder, age 24.
It is Thursday already and time to get this column out in today’s mail. It hardly seems like two weeks have passed since I penned the last column. I was happy that daughter Verena offered to write last week in my place. She loves to write so she didn’t have a problem about not getting the le…
Hello! This is Lovina’s daughter, Verena. Mom has been extra busy lately, so I wanted to help her out by writing the column for her this week.
It is a rainy Wednesday in June as I write this. Son Kevin’s class went to a state park in Indiana today for their school field trip. I am hoping the weather is nicer there. The temperature never went over 60 degrees so far today so it could be chilly for their nature walk through the woods.
It is Tuesday evening. I’m sitting out here on the front porch and it is very quiet, almost too quiet.
Soups are always a good meal option for dinner. Following are a few favorites from The Amish Cook column over the years.
Another rainy day! It has been rainy all week. We were able to get all the clothes dried on Monday even though there was a shower after the clothes were on the lines. We need to do laundry again and sure am hoping for a nice day on Friday or Saturday.
It is a beautiful May morning with the sun shining and the temperature already in the 60s, a perfect day for gardening!
3:15 a.m. Time to start the day! I pack my husband Joe’s lunch while he gets ready for work. I pack a container of leftover breakfast casserole for him to eat at his 8:30 a.m. break. He isn’t hungry for breakfast this early in the morning. Then for his lunch I pack some fried chicken, cherry…
We are still in the process of getting everything cleaned for our upcoming church services that we will host on May 4, Lord willing. Council meeting was set for that day, so lunch will be served during the service. We usually have two tables set and people take turns coming to eat over the n…
It is turning out to be a nice, sunny day. The temperature is almost 40. We awoke one morning this week with the ground all covered with snow. It stayed cold for a few days with the temperature going down to 22 one night.
April is here, bringing us warmer temperatures. Monday was nice and warm. We hung all the laundry outside on the lines. By evening all of it was dry.
It is the first day of spring. The temperature is staying around the freezing mark this morning. I am hoping we will see some sun to make it seem more like spring.
Here's a rundown of a recent day.
We are into the first week of March which is unbelievable. It makes us think of spring but the weather outside is telling us something a whole lot different.
We had 200 gallons of propane delivered here this morning. The price was $2.69 a gallon which is probably the most we have paid since we started using it.
We are having thunder, lightning, and rain right now. The temperature is just over the freezing mark so it turns the driveway into a sheet of ice. It’s a challenge to walk on and for daughter Loretta so much more.
We are still having temperatures below zero on some mornings. We also received a few more inches of snow. The local paper said we have had 41.5 inches of snow this year and the average temperature has been zero.
We are already into the second month of 2014. Many, many inches of snow have fallen already this year. Our neighbor cleaned our drive again yesterday. We have some pretty big snow banks that have accumulated from the drive being cleaned out quite often.
This my final column of 2013. This is Friday after Christmas. We had a very nice enjoyable Christmas Day. We made a big breakfast casserole the night before with the ingredients being scrambled eggs, shredded potatoes, onions, green peppers, diced cheese, bacon, ham, and then topped with sau…
