This is my sour dough starter after not having stirred it for a day. I just wanted to let you know that you should expect to see liquid settling on top. When this happens just stir it back down into the mixture.

Yesterday, (giggle, giggle!), I found a recipe that looked really good for sour dough rolls. I was so excited I didn’t realize… doesn’t use the sour dough starter! UGH!

It was good so I’m sharing this recipe today:

Sour Dough Dinner Rolls (These would be excellent made into cinnamon rolls!)

1 pkg. dry yeast
1c luke warm water
2c buttermilk
1/2c honey or slightly more
1/2c oil
1t salt
4t baking powder
1/4t baking soda
6c flour

Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water. Add buttermilk. Combine honey and oil and add to yeast mixture. Combine dry ingredients and sift into liquid mixture. Stir together. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls into small bowl of flour. Knead each roll in your hand a few times until not sticky. Flatten in hand. Dip in melted butter and form into a biscuit type roll. Line up in rows in oblong Pyrex dish. Brush tops with more melted butter, if needed. Refrigerate until ready to bake. Can be baked at once but better if allowed to rise about 20 minutes. Bake in 400 degree oven for 25 minutes. Place baking dish in middle of oven rather than on bottom rack to prevent bottoms from over-browning.


Prayer Requests:

Ms. Emma is still really struggling with her teeth today!

Fuch’s family–Dr. appointments this week.

My Aunt Denise and her family

Today, I’m Thankful For:

The rain that is promised for this afternoon…perfect for little seedlings in the yard!

All that I’ve accomplished today.

I think I’m finally beginning to figure out this new cell phone.

Yesterday, my friend Christy called and offered to give me the fabric scraps from the baby quilt that she and several of my friends made for Emma…they are coming at the time that I was getting ready to make a quilt out of the baby blankets that I have saved from each of my children. Perfect timing!!

My sweet Matthew!! I’m so blessed by this little 6 year old!! What did I ever do to deserve him? He is the most giving, joyful little boy. I love him….I love that I see what his Daddy must have looked like at his age, I love him because he is always playing with the babies and treating them as if they are super special to him, I love him because his missing front teeth make me smile and make him look like a baby for just a little longer, I love him because I see the light of the Lord in most everything he does. He is my little acorn right now….but I can see him changing everyday.

Tracy’s Task:

Today, I would like to encourage you to pull out your calendar and schedule time for yourself to do something that you enjoy! I try to sew (I love this!) everyday but today I made time for a manicure! That will be nice for my hubby too!!

Just try to schedule a few things during the month of May. We all need time to do things that we enjoy!

What I’m Learning:

Pumpkin seeds take their time sprouting! All those seeds that I planted a few weeks back and they are just now sprouting!

GRIT(S) can be a four letter word (are you getting my drift?) when they are all over your kitchen, following a morning frolic by the two year old! Bless his heart, Timothy came running to my room, out of breath…”It’s Ben mama…..Heeee’sssss innnnnn thhheeee ggrittttts!”.

Today’s Scripture Meditation:

Prov 14:4
“Where there are no oxen, the manger is empty, but from the strength of an ox comes an abundant harvest.”


What a blessing this verse is! I have eight children….yes, they are alot of work! But! We are trying so hard to raise them to make the Lord the love of their hearts…we are still “gardening” but our harvest is going to me immense!

I say that to say:

Congratulations to Matt and Jennie Chancey ( on the birth of their sweet little twins!
