My Week on Wednesday… April 23

Join me for 'My Week on Wednesday"… where I share what I've been doing all week!

Hello and welcome to another My Week on Wednesday where I take a few moments to share what I’ve been doing over the week. I share some of the blogs I’ve visited, and some of the things that I have learned.

We survived Spring Break without incident, and had some fun along the way… which led to this week’s post–The Dessert Which Must Not Be Named. 🙂

And Spring has sprung. Sure, it’s not warm yet… but if you look closely most trees have the tiny bits of green leaves peeking out, and, as the rain falls steadily, you can almost watch the grass turning green. I really love this season!

First off… Tasty & Delicious…

  • Chai Coconut Ice Cream. It’s ice cream made with coconut milk and a blend of yummy-looking spices.  I absolutely love chai, and I cannot wait to try this!
  • Since I’m on the “ice cream” theme at the moment, how about Lemon Mint Frozen Yogurt with Chocolate Chips? To tell the truth, I can’t quite imagine how those flavors could mix well, but Janet from One Acre Farm says it’s “perfect for the adventurous frozen dessert lover in search of novel flavor sensations,” and I’m all of that, so as soon as I have fresh mint in my garden, I’ll be giving this one a try! 🙂

  • And, because we can’t eat ice cream all day long, and because I am dying for fresh (local!) asparagus… Garlicky Roasted Potatoes & Asparagus from Homespun Seasonal Living. Garlic. Potatoes. Asparagus. Enough said.

Do you get headaches, or worse, migraines? The Herbal Academy of New England shares some Herbal Remedies for Headaches. I also found Joybilee Farm’s post about Balm of Gilead fascinating. I’m not sure if we have the right kind of trees around here… but I am going to find out!

Also, do you knit or crochet? Where does your yarn come from? Peaceful Acres Farm takes us along on The Journey of Yarn Farming. That was one of the more interesting thing I have read in a long time!

Did you know that yesterday was Earth Day? It was hard to miss, right? But to really take care of the Earth, we have to do it every day… not just for one day every April.

Attainable Sustainable shares 66 Small Changes to Make a Big Difference. They really are small changes, too. I bet you’re doing a bunch of them already… and could start doing a bunch more without hardly noticing! Go for it!

Common Sense Home also has some great–and money saving!–ways to Celebrate Earth Day. The 104 Homestead also has some earth-loving tips, plus a great reading list to get little minds thinking about caring for the earth!


Finally, approximately daily, I post quotes on my Facebook Page. The quote with the most likes, shares, and comments will become the Quote of the Week. 🙂

And soooo… your Quote of the Week:
