Dandelion Syrup

Well, I made it. No, I haven't taken pictures of it yet, but I will. I will admit, when I first started it, it smelled like ass. It was REALLY stinky when you start the brewing process. BUT, holy hannah is it ever good! It has the consistency of honey, looks sort of like honey, but tastes NOTHING like honey. I wish I had smaller jars, I would can some. I'm going to take some to work to get another opinion.

In other news, we set up our trampoline in the backyard. And yes Chris, we bought an enclosure for it so the boys won't fall off. I was out there today with Joey. Well, I was laying on it, Joey was running around me. It was equally beneficial for both of us.

My job was posted again at the beginning of May. The school board has to post it every year because I don't have my full ECE (Early Childhood Education) YET, but I am finished the 1st of a 2 year program. The closing date on the job was Sunday and I still haven't heard if anyone else applied. If no one else applies, it's automatically mine again, if I accept of course. I've checked my email about 50 times today to see if there was an email, but nothing. Patience is NOT a virtue of mine. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Without going into too many details, 2 weeks ago one of my favorite uncles had a massive stroke and is now in the hospital. He is completely paralyzed on the left side and is not doing very well. If you believe, please add my family to your prayers. I'm praying for strength for them for the days to come. They are not going to be easy. This is one of the very few times I wish we lived closer.
