Easter Greetings

Sending this wish to you and yours for a wonderful Easter filled with the blessings of family and friends.

Hope you are all enjoying spring... we had a dusting of snow just the other morning, but it promptly switched to a cold, damp rain. I brought in a small load of firewood last week, and assumed it would last for the rest of the season. Needless to say, I had to start up both the fireplace (once the wind died down after a week) and the wood furnace to get the dampness out of the house ,and there went the wood!

I spent a few days planting onions and leeks out in the garden, and tidying things up from the winter. The greens are planted, and I had some spinach left in the ground from the fall which is coming along. I am hoping the sun will warm things up, as I am longing to clean out the barn, and get some real outdoor work accomplished.

I have been delving a bit into raw foods; though I haven't been tested, I have had strong suspicions of being sensitive to wheat/gluten for quite some time. (You all know how much I love baking breads and sweet things, so this has fueled my denial!) However, it's opened a whole new world to me, and being vegetarian already, and running a natural/ organic foods buying club for many years, has not been too difficult to adjust to. Time will tell where this will lead to, and if I will relapse soon, but it's an interesting process!

Well, enough of my rambling catch-up! Take care, and may you all have a lovely day!
