A little nervous on the ride down....

After acquiring this very nice, large ottoman, I was called upon to do a bit of rearranging.
Anna and I (with the help of those nice little gliding things you can slide underneath) moved the book shelf out of the piano room, exchanged one chair for another in the sitting room and had the couch and love seat trade places! We found a new home for the coffee table and swivel rocker from the sitting room. And voila!
Please ignore the table full of books and stuff behind the chair Anna is sitting in - gearing up for a home school book sale the first May! There always has to be some area still in progress :)

finishing off the boiling down of the sap we collected off of 3 trees - thought it would never reach the desired temp - 219° --only to find out my thermometer was inaccurate! grrr.

Even Mia is curious about how this will turn out!
Feeling pretty pumped up after Day .5 of No Wheat Dairy or Corn!
Actually I felt great when I got up this morning and hadn't even started - I'm guess I'm a great candidate for Placebo Effect!
For several different reasons, Anna and I are eliminating wheat, dairy and corn from our diet for 2 weeks. The plan we're following also calls for no caffeine - we'll see about that.
In the picture is sloppy joes made with venison, celery, green pepper, onion, garlic, crushed tomatoes and a few spices - we ate in on green pepper wedges. Pineapple and oranges for a side. I realize I'm taking a risk posting this, after only 1/2 a day into it, but oh well!
