A Little Something Homemade

I’m going to do a little giveaway today! This is my first giveaway so nothing too fancy. A set of 4 homemade coasters. I’m not doing a complicated raffle draw. I’ll just ask a question at the end and post in the comments your answer.

Here’s the prize!


I just whipped these up last night and I’m still learning so they aren’t perfect. But they are made with love!

Here’s the question: Do you use coasters? My answer is no. We have young kids so we don’t keep open drinks in the living room.

Open to Canada and the US. I’m choosing to close the giveaway on February 25th 2013. I’ll email the winner for their address to ship the coasters.


Good luck!!

Updated: Angela is the winner of the coaster set! Thanks everyone for playing along and I hope to do this again.


A Trip to the Terminal

Yesterday my husband and I hauled a load of durum to the grain terminal. He got the price he wanted for it and this was the 3rd of 4 loads of durum to haul.


You pull up and a vacuum comes down and sucks a small sample from your trailer. They test it for moisture, diseases, bugs, protein. All these make up your dockage and determine how much grain is in your trailer.


Our total haul yesterday was about 1200 bushels. With one more load going tomorrow and then a cheque 😀


Once your sample is done being processed, you pull up to a grate and open an unload hole under the trailer. The grain dumps down into the grate which only takes about 10 minutes.


Close the unload underneath and put the tarp back on top. All done!
