No posts the last two days….work has me swamped and its taking a toll on my nerves. Luckily– its Thursday.

I only last week (don’t laugh) realized that my husband and I are more or less part of the locavore movement (I hadn’t known what that meant) and so that changes things, opens up my access to information and researching topics that directly effect us as a home and business.

Well — last night we had about –golly …this many onions:
