>After snow last week, we’ve warmed up and had spring like weather. I’ve been working on the garden to get it ready for planting and do have one box of early stuff put in. Joe is still working long days and it is beginning to take it’s toll. Especially since the weekends are full too. This past weekend we actually went to visit some friends on their ranch to help with branding. They had too much rain for branding though so we just had a day of visiting. It was a fun time.

Some exciting news from Wardeh at Gnowfglins. I have mentioned before her amazing eCourse that I have been taking. It is the GNOWFGLINS Fundamentals eCourse and it has been a wonderful and simple way to learn how to cook traditional style foods. Starting Monday, May 24, Wardeh will be offering Open Enrollment. This means that you can sign up for the course and start taking it at any time. I have to admit that I thought I was feeling pretty comfortable with cooking traditional style foods but I have learned so many helpful tips and ideas from Wardeh, I wish I would have had this course when I started cooking this way! Her lessons are very straight-forward and makes everything easy to understand. Be sure to take a look at the GNOWFGLINS Fundamentals eCourse to learn about the course offerings and how the open enrollment works.
