Amish Cook mixes butterscotch and zucchini

The farmers down the road are planting their fields. It looks like they might be planting potatoes.Timothy's (Elizabeth's friend) third mare delivered a foal on Sunday night. He now has four foals at his place as Susan's pony Roxie and her foal are there too. We want to go see the four new foals sometime. They're always so frisky and full of life.

We are in the process of getting a permit accepted to build on a ramp to the house. Loretta will be so glad for it. I would like to thank all you readers for the support you have given. It is appreciated very much.

Joe would also like to get some sidewalks made to the house before church services are held here. It will help a lot to keep dirt from getting dragged in.

My rhubarb and horseradishes are pepping through. The tulips are looking hearty too. I'm watching to see when the asparagus pops also. I love spring! After a long winter it will be even more special. God has created a wonderful world. How often do we take all our needs for granted? Do we appreciate our blessings enough? I read a saying recently that said "what if God only gave you tomorrow for what you prayed for today." How true to life. People tend to get so busy they truly miss the purpose we were put on this earth to begin with. I hope everyone had a very blessed Easter!
