It is Thursday morning and the children are all sleeping in a little longer. It’s their first day of not having to go to school for the summer.
We are having a light rain this morning which we are so thankful for. Yesterday we also had some rain and it sure has made my garden perk up. I think we will be having radishes to use soon.
This is Tuesday evening around 10 p.m. It’s late and I should join the rest of the family and go to bed. It seems our days are filled with all the extra cleaning we are doing plus gardening.
Our garden is beginning to fill up more and more. So far we have potatoes, onions, peas, lettuce, radishes, red beets, carrots and dill planted. Hope to get time to plant corn, green beans, and zucchini this week yet. I’ll wait until next week to put out any tomato and pepper plants. The see…
It's 7 a.m. and the children just left for school. My husband, Joe, has been at work several hours already and daughter Elizabeth left for her job at 5:15 a.m.
We are having cold, rainy weather again. Monday was nice and sunny so we could get the laundry all dried. We are out of coal so hopefully it won’t get too cold yet.
It is windy and looks like rain. This whole week seems to have been rainy and stormy. Yesterday we managed to get half of our laundry dried before the rain came.
The children went back to school after a week here at home for Spring break. My husband Joe went back to work on Tuesday. The house seems empty during the day. Daughter Susan is working 4 days this week but is home today.
5 a.m. The alarm goes off. I get up because daughter Elizabeth will leave for her job at the factory soon. She has been working a lot of 10-hour days at the factory.
This is a very nice and sunny Thursday with the mercury going over the 50-degree mark on our thermometer. Susan and I did laundry including some curtains.
Rhubarb finds its way into so many baked goods. It just adds a nice, tart taste to everything. Mom baked with her homegrown rhubarb often, and she never had trouble growing rhubarb.
It's a nice sunny day in March although the thermometer shows 25 degrees this a.m. We have all the meat from our beef either in cans or in the freezer.
Note: Lovina Eicher's regular Amish Cook column will return next week. For today, Lovina is sharing a couple of quick recipes from "The Amish Cook's Baking Book."
Editor’s Note: Lovina’s church is more progressive when it comes to safety-oriented technology like smoke detectors. When their home was built, local home inspectors required such detectors be installed. Some more conservative Amish groups, like the Swartzentruber Amish, have opposed such devices.
The school will have Friday and Monday off for a mid-winter break. Today is Valentine’s Day so the elementary classes are having their party.
My husband Joe has been home the last three days, not having any work. Makes it a little harder on payday but we shouldn’t complain. God always provides a way if we keep our trust in him.
The darkness of the early morning is leaving and daylight is appearing. We are being greeted by a world of white. It has been snowing all night and several inches are covering the ground.
Hi, I am Susan. I decided to write for Mom this week. My 17th birthday is tomorrow the 24th so my treat to Mom is to write the column for her.
We attended both funerals of my cousins over the weekend. So nice to see cousins, uncles, aunts, and friends that we don’t often see but sad for the reason we had to gather.
The following is a rundown of a recent day.
