Tully El-e-men-tare-y

I really love living in a small town.
Especially a sweet, small town.
(The WHOLE town says El-e-men-TARE-ee, it's humorous.)

Yesterday, I signed up for-
You can place an order online from local farms to get produce, dairy, homemade cheeses, grass-fed meat, honey, breads, etc.
On Thursday you pick up your order from the Tully Free Library.
Fun, huh?!

I love fresh, healthy food.
I've been reading about Paleo eating and Whole30.  I really love fresh food.
Can I just say something though?
I don't believe God intended us to have to live off of coconuts.
I just don't.

I don't think grains are evil.
I think God made it so that even poor people can be healthy.
I'm not sure what this means exactly, but it does keep me moderate and cautious with every new food fad.

Anyone know how I can find oats, rice, corn and wheat that is healthy?  Because I believe that-

 14 All grain is ordained for the use of man and of beasts, to be the staff of life, not only for man but for the beasts of the field, and the fowls of heaven, and all wild animals that run or creep on the earth;

 15 And these hath God made for the use of man only in times of famine and excess of hunger.

 16 All grain is good for the food of man; as also the fruit of the vine; that which yieldeth fruit, whether in the ground or above the ground—

(This is from the word of wisdom- from modern-day revelation.)

I just think grain is good for the food of man.

My girls had an art gallery and choir concert last night.

My kids are adorable!!  (Check out Facebook or Instagram if you want to see them boogie down on their solos.)  


I absolutely love school, I love teachers who invest time and effort teaching my children.  I love watching my kids interact with other children.  I love their confidence, spunk and SHINE.  And, I love spending time with them at BK after the littles are asleep.

Being a mom is great.

I love small towns.

Life IS good.

(Today is open the pool day!)

PS- we have crazy barn swallows that built nests in our barn and above our screen door.  I'm a bit of a Fern Arable and I wouldn't let my husband knock the nests down.  But now, I wonder if we should.  These birds are building a commune.  Um, what do you do with your barn swallows?

Hang up a plastic snake and the birds will not come back. If you have a huge problem you may want more than one snake but the birds will fly in a few times look and the snake and fly away. No more nests! :)

I agree with you- lots of healthy foods in moderation, including good grains. I order wheat and rolled oats from lds.org and I think it's a good deal.

My opinion on the barn swallows...yes, they will keep building, and more will come! Good comment about the plastic snake. You are not poisoning them to kill them; you just want them to go away and build elsewhere. If you knock down their nest, they may build elsewhere. I do not think this is bad.

By the way, you have been a big inspiration to me! Thank you for what you write; I love it, and it helps me so much!
