Art

Today the chickadees and I were given the privilege of meeting P. Buckley Moss. What a beautiful woman. She was so gracious to open her home and gallery to our co-op group this morning. The girls and I felt as if we had spent some precious time with our own Bocia. She had so many fascinating stories to share and her artwork is beautiful.

You'll see no pictures here today. I felt it just wasn't right to be snapping away in this lovely women's home. If your interested in taking a peek at her work go here.

She really gave encouragement to my eldest daughters. She, like them has dealt with learning disabilities but hasn't let that stop her. Finding what she loved to do at an early age and doing it. In no way expecting or even wanting to become famous, she has become world renown. A gracious, keep you own your toes kind of lady. She has so much to share with her family and the world.

Thank you Ms. Buckley.

Pumpkin Bread Season

Ahhhhhhhh can you smell it? I can taste it and it is delicious. Ahhhhhhhhh. Fall has started off with a bang here a 4 Sweet Sisters. School Girl has be in charge of advertising the chickadees business. She's gotten orders for 250 loaves of our mouthwatering pumpkin bread. Amazing! This is the biggest year we have had so far.

Besides baking we have been apart of an enormous garage sale at our friend's farm (yes we have more than beaches and Mickey here). A tremendous amount of business went on and we now have the funds to purchase a new stand up freezer. I am so excited! I'm deal hunting at this very moment :) We also sold another 24 loaves of our tasty bread there and lots of chocolate chip cookies. It was a great weekend, we bartered, dickered, swapped recipes and chatted about life.

So much more is happening. I hope to post later about our fall gardens and test garden, Superman's new business and much, much more!
