Our little grandson...

The newest grandson came with his mommy to visit this morning.  He actually smiled at me and "talked" to me!  He's nearly 6 weeks old.  What a sweetie...

Our new little living room...

I think the living room is pretty much complete now.  Here are a few pictures.  As you can see, it's quite small but fine for two people.  :)
At last my piano is here.

Kitty LOVES our new house!

When I sit here, I can look out of that window and watch the goat and the chickens.  :)

Perfect brown rice in the wonderful cooking bag!

For Mother's Day, my daughter sent me a 2 quart Lodge cast iron Dutch oven.  It came in the mail yesterday and I opened it.  Yes.  I did.  Early.  :)  I had to try it out.  Just before I went to bed, I started a batch of brown rice in it and let it cook all night in the cooking bag I told you about not long ago.  I put 4 cups of water and 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt in the pot, brought it to a boil, added 2 cups of brown rice, brought it back to a boil, put on the lid and turned the heat down some and let it boil for 5 minutes.  Then, I tucked it all snugly into the cooking bag and let it cook all night.  We ate some for breakfast.  I don't think I've ever had such perfectly cooked brown rice before.  Thank you, DD !!
