Selling Books

Things are moving along nicely. I now have my books in several stores. Good Earth, Kitchen Kneads, Bosch Kitchen Center, Alpine Clinic, Wooley's Dairy, Varian Credit Union and a few other places. We are working on the website and should have it finished by the end of November.

What I really look forward to doing is helping other people with Crohn's disease. I KNOW that I have something to offer, and the more people I can help, the better.

I also want to open everyones eyes about the importance of healthy eating. How to use whole wheat so it tastes good. How to cut back on sugar etc etc. How to use honey instead of sugar in recipes. You REALLY will not miss out on a thing. I have been able to duplicate almost every recipe that I find using honey instead of sugar.

Marshmallows, Lemon Mousse Cake, Puddings, Cakes, Cookies, Ice Cream etc.
Give me a challenge, I will try to make it!!

Canning Tomatoes

My sister-in-law was nice enough to give me a whole bunch of tomatoes. Thank you Flor.


My books have made it all the way from Korea!
My unbelievably generous neighbor, offered to let us borrow his truck and trailer to pick up my books. He drove his truck and trailer to the publisher, loaded the books, brought it back to our house, and unloaded the books. All on his day off! Thanks Dave! It is hard to tell from the pictures, but the trailer was full from front to back, stacked 3 boxes high. It's a huge trailer. There was a total of 186 boxes. We brought home 181. The publisher kept the other 5 to distribute.
Above is my awesome family! Miguel, Emerald, Logan, Tanner and me. And down in front Boo our dog. Miguel only got 1 hour of sleep before we went to pick up the books. He worked the night before, all night and then we got the call that my books arrived. He only took a 1 hour nap, then went with to load the books. I am so grateful for him and all that he does for us. He works so hard so that I can stay at home with our kids. He has also ALWAYS supported me in this book venture. Thank you Miguel, I love you! As you can see, we just stacked the books all over our home. I guess I will have to sell them fast to get them out of my living room. Tanner sort of wants his room back too.

We had a lot of cucumbers in our garden so I decided to make pickles. The jars in the middle are Hot pickles, the jars on the right are Bread and Butter pickles, and the jars on the left are pickled onions. I haven't tried any of them yet because I want them to cure first. Hope they are good.
