I was trying to come up with row markers that were both pretty and practical and didn't cost very much. Then I remembered - we have rocks - lots of them. Rocks don't blow away in the wind, they aren't much bothered by rain either. They do have a tendency to get carried around by Ruger (our dog) but I'm not sure much is safe from him. So, I took a sharpie and a bit of paint to my pile of (clean) rocks, and now have my row markers. Heidi really enjoyed this project, I let her paint the darker rocks white before I wrote on them and she didn't want to stop!

and finally, on the way home, we took the road so she could ride it!

I left my crockpot plugged in a half an hour longer than normal, so it got warmer than normal. Also, our home was a toasty 75 degrees today instead of its normal winter 65. When I opened the crockpot, the whole top layer had separated and looked like cottage cheese.
I'm not sure if this is because it got too warm and actually started to become cottage cheese and is therefore safe and just a texture issue, or if something is indeed wrong and it is unsafe to consume. I stuck the whole thing in my fridge while trying to figure out what to do because I'd sure hate to unnecessarily throw out a whole gallon of yogurt. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know!

On the bright side, I haven't had any trouble combing the knots out of her face or arms!

Last night we began by going to the local stone store (aka. Our field) and picking rocks. This is going to be a LOOOOOOONG project! On the bright side, I have plenty of available materials, if I was more ambitious I could build a castle. Heidi was a great helper, but I think I'll get a little farther with the size rocks Karl was gathering.
We got a nice load then took it home to pile by the building site.

The first video is of Hannah playing peek-a-boo, you can hear Heidi talking to her imaginary friend, "Gordon" in the background. The second is of Heidi dancing her "Scottish dance". I have no idea where she picked this up, but she does it every so often and it cracks me up!
You say "whee!" and "yee-haw!" and slide down the hill.
