First, two confessions.
Then, a marvelous recommendation.
(And stay tuned for an exciting giveaway.)
Confession #1: We use bleach in our toilets.
Yes, bleach is terrible and should be avoided at all costs. I know, and I agree. That’s why we don’t use it anywhere else.*
But we live out in the country, with our own well-water which happens to be quite hard. (The water is hard. Living in the country is not hard. It’s fun.)
Our water is so hard, that when we moved in a few years ago the toilets looked absolutely filthy and seemed beyond all hope. I wanted to post little signs in the bathrooms declaring something along the lines of “We really do clean our toilets. The stains are from our well-water. We promise.”
I’m happy to point out a new feature that should make it much easier to print recipes or other awesome Yankee Homestead posts…Print Friendly!
No doubt most of you are already familiar with the green Print Friendly button. Just in case you have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s a brief run down…

What will you order?
Last December we enjoyed our first experience with The Nutcracker.
Older Brother was five and Little Brother not quite two, so we haven’t yet ventured out to a live performance.
[I should also point out that Mr. Native Texan is not quite convinced of the value in watching leotard-clad dancers pirouetting around a stage, especially in light of the fact that we’re raising sons here at the Yankee Homestead.]
But we love listening to the music and reading the story together at home.
Older Brother also really enjoyed picking out a small, ceramic Nutcracker ornament to hang on our tree. In fact, he mentioned just the other day how he was looking forward to seeing our little blue Nutcracker soon and hanging him on the tree. 🙂
There are many versions available, of both the sound recording of Tchaikovsky’s music, as well as the story itself. Did you know the original story differs from the ballet version?
