Cheese Giveaway update

Everyone that has commented is in plus everyone from last week. If you want into the cheese giveaway, get your comment in now! I'll be drawing sometime around noonish tomorrow. I still have a piece available for donation, a 14oz round of cheddar...
We got just a little bit of snow from the great snow storm that was predicted. Just enough to cover the ground. it sure does make everything look clean and pretty.
We spent the whole day today cleaning the house. Apparently, the ventless fireplace decided it was dirty and sooted up the whole place overnight. So, out came the cleaning brushes and the whole thing had to be taken apart to be cleaned and the whole house needed wiped down. I can hardly wait to get the storage house all done so we can move into it with the wood burning stove and fireplace. I like the ventless gas fireplace but every little speck of dust seems to be attracted to it and makes it soot up.
Tomorrow is a whole new day, hoping we get some good news on the job front! I've got my fingers crossed.......


  1. My yogurt cheese and powdered milk curds went excellent. For anyone that seriously wants to try their hand at making cheese, I plan on for a starter kit and buying my own parts afterwards.

    In the mean time, I would still love a taste of some homemade cheese. Our selections is seriously limited by one big box store here.

  2. Gee, Snow AND homemade cheese? I'm jealous!

  3. I miss snow...sigh. I know, I'll get plenty when I move to Vermont, but right now down in south east Texas...nada.
    Still hoping I'll win some cheese, though, to comfort my snow envy!

  4. I was afraid you'd get the 5-6 inches called for, we only had 2-3 but your right, it made everything all clean and pretty...till it melted LOL

  5. 'get the storage house all done so we can move into it'? What does that mean? BTW, your check is in the mail today for my share of the cheese! Can't wait!

  6. I just discovered your blog and I love it! Would love to try some of that delicious looking cheese! :)

  7. Gen, I've got your piece reserved, all's well! The storage house needs electrical, plumbing and insulation... all cost money.

    Queen! Good to see you, you're in!

    Angela! Welcome to the blog, you're in too!

  8. I've just stumbled across your web page. I'm in the process of learning how to do everything the "Pioneer" way. I am determined that by the end of summer, to be completely self sustained. I have enjoyed reading your blogs. If you have any sugestions on how to make cheap solar panels, please let me know.
