i am a michigan hillbilly.
or, at least that is what paul and elousie said!
i was visiting with them in their garage yesterday, and we were talking about okra.
I've never had okra. never tried it. never cooked it. never nothing!
anyway...I said I was willing to try just about anything, and I'd love to learn...that's when E said..."you're a Michigan Hillbilly, aren't you?!?".
How could I NOT laugh!
"I guess" I said..."why do you say that?"
E : "oh, you're always making something, or doing something different."
I just smiled.
I love my neighbors!
Now, she would probably flip out if I told her how "hillbilly" I really am...(although that probably isn't the word I would have used until yesterday!)
She has no idea that :
I've been canning and preserving.
I make my own laundry soap.
I'm researching anything and everything I can find on homesteading right now.
I love crafts. (scrapbooking, crocheting, tatting, sewing)
And, the list could go on...but I really don't want to scare everyone else away either!
I made my first set of coasters yesterday (above.)
And I completed five scrapbook pages yesterday!
a productive day, indeed!
