This same time, years previous: apricot couronne, the tables are turning, the last weekend, applied mathematics, no buffer, oatmeal toffee bars, fabulous fatira, caramelized onions.


  1. The mystery photo is some kind of amazingly symmetrical chopped/cut wood....not sure if it's firewood or posts???

  2. Could it be a massive cylindrical tree trunk?

  3. Answer: a tree stump that's been cross-hatched to help it rot.

  4. Dear Jennifer, I am a long time reader, but have never commented. Today it is time, as I’ve just read your entire March postings through, and have, as is often the case, made a list of, or taken a photo of, your latest recommendations for books, blogs, etc. I am a very long time friend of your mother-in-law, way back to when our first born were age four, and in nursery school. I generally love your homeschooling adventures (each of my three children homeschooled their children at least for a portion of their schooling). And I enjoy reading about your very creative family, as well as your adventures in the kitchen, and various missions trips! I thought I should finally identify myself!!

    1. Thank you for popping in to introduce yourself, Flos --- I love meeting my readers!
