Silly children. They are enjoying a video before bedtime. Actually, we are waiting for a man to come buy 15 raspberry plants...at 10:15 pm! He works at the local airport until 10 pm. That's an additional $30 for the camp jar. We have Anna's camp paid for, now we're saving for the gas for the 12-hour trip. But I am weary and want to crawl into bed!
Today I took Maggie up to Walter Reed Army Hospital (or whatever WRAMC stands for) for a checkup. The doctor is very pleased. Maggie is doing much better...but was disappointed that the dr didn't do an accupuncture treatment. Even though the pain is nothing like she's used to, after 5 years...it's annoying.

Afterwards we stopped at the large thrift shop outside Andrews Air Force Base and bought three things. Maggie bought an IKEA flowerpot for $1. I bought the above 2-quart pitcher for $7.
I also bought this unusual cast iron pan for $5. How unusual is it? I couldn't find another one on the internet! The only words printed on the bottom are "Made in the U.S.A." and 74 H. Anyone know anything about this pan?! I have never seen a cornstick pan with the handle on the side like this one, nor have I ever seen an 8-stick cornstick pan. Very rare.
The amish children are finished with school for the year. I will miss seeing them playing at recess.
One more question for my readers. Does anyone do worm composting? If so, what model composter do you have? I like the idea of keeping my worms in the kitchen (I know...I couldn't believe it either). According to the many reviews on Amazon, if done properly, there are no smells or escaping worms.
I also like this "Can-o-Worms" model. Most of the models got good reviews...which makes it hard to choose. Our family produces a lot of compost in the summer, so I would like to know if one of these models could handle that much. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Today was a cool day...temps didn't hit 60. Tomorrow's high will be 54. What happened to spring? So glad I didn't plant tomatoes yet.


Many blessings ~ Kathie
