Me on horse on Beach in Accra


I leave in 6 days

Photobucketso as of today I have 6 days left until I leave for Africa.  I can't wait to be there again.  This is my 3rd time going there.  My ex is not happy at all, but what do I care what he thinks anyways?
So I won't have much of a garden here in Alaska this year, but so far it is proving to be a very cold spring so far.  Not a nice spring at all, so maybe I should not waste my time, like last year.
I should have been taking pictures, but I have not felt much like doing anything at all.  I've gotten a different laptop, one that works right and I will take that with me and take pictures and try to add them here.  I don't know how long I will be there as I have some things to do there.

It's getting closer

Its getting closer to heading back to Africa. I'm taking some jump ropes to teach the little girls how to jump rope. I'm also going to take frisbees and a few other games and things. I can not wait. I will not be staying in any hotels this time, but with my friend Abass at his home. Hmmmmm, I think I'll invest in mosquitoes netting as I'll be going this time during the rainy season. Oh which reminds me to get into Anchorage to the Travelers Clinic for a prescription for malaria meds. Last times I was in Africa was during dry season and I did not see nary a mosquito! Lots to do this month.

Muffins today


I am wanting to make some muffins today.  What kind?  don't know yet.  I have lots of frozen raspberries in the freezer so maybe it should have raspberries in them.  I ought to make some seedless raspberry jam, jelly and syrup so that I can give some to my mom.  she can't have the seeds in the raspberries.    so I'm going now to look in my many books and recipes for the perfect one.

Finally got this on my iPad

Geesh it took a long time too. I'm ready to settle down for the evening and watch tv and /or finish my book.
It's also time to clean out my sun room soon, but gosh it has been averaging minus 22 degrees for several day, NO weeks now. Enough of that I say. Time to think of gardening. I've gotten a few seed catalogs in the mail.
I'm also thinkining of my trip to Africa which will be in a couple months and I am going alone, for a very good reason.....and I simply can't wait, although I have to wait. LOL

I'm going to start adding recipes and garden/homestead things here and pictures if I can figure that out!
