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...

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.

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

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 !!
