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…
As I write this, Christmas is six days away. I do not need to look at the calendar to know, as the children remind me every morning. Jesus is the reason for the season. Let us rejoice on the day Christ was born. May each of your holiday seasons be filled with all the joy and peace on earth.
Oh my! Looking at the calendar Christmas is only 13 days away. It seems such a short time between Thanksgiving Day and Christmas this year.
We are in the first week of December, the final month of 2013. I went to town yesterday to take son Kevin to the dentist. Everywhere you see reminders that the Christmas holiday is approaching fast. It gets dark early so it was dark when we left town. Kevin enjoyed watching all the Christmas lights.
It is Friday and everyone is home today. Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day. My sister Emma, her husband Jacob, and children, sisters Verena and Susan and daughter Elizabeth’s friend Timothy all joined us for Thanksgiving dinner.
We had a few days of sunshine this week. The girls took advantage of it and raked up the rest of the leaves in our yard. We still have some here and there but most of them are picked up. What a relief before the weather gets much cooler.
It is 3:40 a.m. and my husband Joe is waiting on his ride to the factory. Daughter Elizabeth doesn’t have to work today. Her factory let the workers have off since shotgun season opens for the deer hunters today. Elizabeth will go hunting with Timothy, and Susan will accompany Mose. Joe will…

It’s Wednesday evening and it has really warmed up. I am finally having my garage sale on Friday and Saturday. Every time I wanted to have it all summer something else more important came up.
We awoke to a world full of snow flurries. The flakes were big and flaky but none of it stuck to the ground. It was enough to get the children excited about winter weather, especially sledding.
Today (Oct. 18) is Elizabeth’s friend Timothy’s birthday. Happy birthday wishes go out to him. We were going to take supper to Timothy’s house tonight but told him it’s easier if he would come here instead.
Since this is pumpkin season, the column is devoted to two reader favorite recipes involving this tasty autumn garden goodie. More about the happenings in the Eicher household next week!
Sunday morning turned out to be nice and sunny although a bit on the chilly side. Friends and family attended our church services at Jacob and Emma’s house, in honor of baptismal services being held for Mose, Susan and Elizabeth.
Here's a rundown of a recent day:
We feel blessed to have received some much needed rain tonight. It wasn’t that much but it will help. We haven’t had any rain in quite some time, so everything was dry.
