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.
I hope everyone is having a happy and healthy holiday season. It's a time of busy rush and lots of baking on this end. I thought I'd share some of my family's favorite holiday recipes in this column. Fresh fruitcake is a treat that keeps well. Children can help make the Peanutty Squares a…
A friend of ours took our children to the nearby lake for another swimming lesson. We really appreciate the time this lady is taking to teach them. Knowing how to swim is so important especially if they are out on the boat doing a lot fishing. We do make the children wear life jackets when t…
We spent the past weekend in Indiana. My Aunt Barbara's funeral was held on Saturday. It was exactly one month after her sudden death.
It is hard to believe that the month of June is already upon us. Where did the last five months go? A sure sign of summer: school doors have closed for another term. Daughter Elizabeth, 14, has now completed her school years and daughter Lovina, 5, will begin hers this fall. There will be si…
It is Ascension Day so we have spent a relaxing day at home. Amish-owned businesses in the area are closed in observance of the day. We were surprised to hear earlier in the week that brother Albert and wife Sarah Irene were bringing in dinner for us today. They brought a delicious meal cons…
As I sit here at the dining room table, I can smell the fragrance of the lilac bouquet my sister Emma brought me yesterday. I miss my lilac bushes since we had to cut them down while building the new house a few years ago. I'd like to get more started, but it will be a few years before they …

What a surprise for the children to awaken to a white world! Overnight we received quite a few inches of snow.
The five scholars just left for school. Hard to believe we are getting closer and closer to the end of another school year. Next week the children will be home for spring break. I am looking forward to it almost as much as they are.
This is another lovely spring-like day. Temperature is in the mid-40s, but the air makes it feel a bit chillier.
We are done with the hog butchering around here for another year, but I thought I'd talk about it one last time.
We awoke to find a fresh coating of snow in our yard, which was prettier to look at than the mud caused by warmer weather over the past week.
Spring break is over and the children are all back to school. It sure seems quiet this morning after a week of a lot of activity going on.
Monday, Dec. 10 was daughter Verena's birthday. She was excited because she made cupcakes to take to school and treat her classmates.
