Nowhere To Lay My Head by Craig Daliessio

Nowhere To Lay My Head: The True Story of a Homeless Dad by [Daliessio, Craig]     To order your copy click here




If you think you would never be homeless you may want to think again after reading Nowhere to Lay My head by Craig Daliessio. Craig lost everything in 90 days his business and home, etc.. He had to choices to make and in order to be near his daughter he ended up being homeless. This gives a upfront and personal look into the life of a every day man on his journey out of homelessness and the very real candid thoughts of man struggling to put his life back together again. He shares how every day is a Monday waking up to the blues. Putting out resumes in the midst of his situation and even of having a church get together and the being handing the offering and after having the men offering business cards to help him out and praying for him in need of gas and food. Stories of walking through the park tears and pain. A moving story I believe you will enjoy. This is a book that will draw you in and you won't be able to put it down. A wonderful book to purchase too for your church library to encourage and education others. I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

Emergency Bee KILL

Image result for vinegar and bees

I am a lover of bees, but I also have a son that has been allergic to bees. First of all let me say that if you have a nest of bees around your house - call a beekeeper - they will usually take the hive for free or a low fee if it is in your home they will probably have to charge as they may have to tear apart walls, etc..  but if you have a child or you are allergic to bees and you need to take action fast.. fill a spay bottle with vinegar and spray them and even put a little on yourself - No vinegar.. try salt water or water as bees can't fly when wet. Another alternative is to use one of those tennis type electric zappers. If you are allergic to bees it would be a good idea to have these handy in and outside of your home along with emergency numbers. And make sure you make an appointment with your doctor to get a epi - pen if necessary.

Cable left/ Cable Right #CROCHET #STOREY #PRODUCTREVIEW

   To order your copy http://www.storey.com/


I decided to stretch my fiber arts more this year and decided it was time to start cable knitting. May I say SUPER EASY. I was always so afraid of this in the past, but it is so easy it was a shame I didn't pick it up earlier. Storey Publishing has a great book Cable Right Cable Left by Judith Durant that has ever cable imaginable in it. It will take me awhile to get through all of them but It is like Christmas just looking through all the various cables to do!

Time to up your game on clean hands #GERMS #HEALTH

Image result for nail brushImage result for nail brush


When summer comes we starts we start to relax and think cold season is over but there are still lots of germs lurking around. Living on a backyard farm I am constantly reminded to keep everything spotless. Here is the proper way to wash your hands with a brush I wanted to include this as many people garden over the summer. Washing your hands is the single most effective way to keep down germs. 


  1. Wet hands & brush
  2. Soap brush
  3. Brush & Lather
  4. Rinse
  5. Soap hands
  6. Lather
  7. Rinse
  8. Towel dry


Without a brush

One summer hits I love to have these handy for inside out. There are so many varieties and you can even make your own. I like them because everyone can easily clean up their own spot and also it's a handy way to say to everyone - I put it on your place mat. It also makes things a bit more festive. I think it just makes my table look more fancy and gives a nice finished look.

Touch of Class Tea Rose

Clay knows I love roses so the last couple of weeks he built me a rose garden. One of the roses we are growing is Touch of Class Tea rose. The garden is just at the beginning. I have raised roses before and my mother had a lovely rose garden when I was a child. What I love about roses is that you can make beautiful things from them and anytime you want to make your table look beautiful all you have to do is go into the yard and cut a few flowers to brighten up your life. 


We purchased 25 violets from North County Florist in Baldwinsville :)

Clay knew how much I loved African Violets so this year he told me that when tax time I could purchase a nice selection for our home. So I called a floral stand North County Florist in Baldwinsville, NY where I have purchased a some beautiful flowers in the past and ordered 25 African violets!  One of the varieties that we purchased was the Indiana African Violet. A gorgeous pink and beautiful green leaves. Here are some tips on growing African violets.

Water from underneath - although it is a myth about getting the leaves wet- sorta - You can water them over the top if you  lift up the leaves and run them under the sink using warm water. If you are new to African violets do water them from underneath because if you do get the leaves wet.. well, you will kill the plant.

These babies LIVE FOREVER.. but most people kill them early by overwatering.. I wait for my plants to be bone dry before I carry them to the sink to water. 

Do start a new plant from a leaf.. so easy it is insane.. cut the steam off - I usually wait until a leaf is falling off but anyway.. cut it diagonally and stick it in water a ( coke bottle works great ) do not let the actual leave touch the water. 

There are tons and tons of varieties to choose from but I love them all. I am so excited about having my african violets. I got about 4-6 different kinds but that was fine because this way I can work with for fun and to share with you guys some great things to do with African Violets. 

more.. 

African violets are the number one plant - A wonderful gift for all the members of your family anytime because they last forever.. My home is so dark in the winter but my African violets are the only plants that make it through the dark days :) 

Stay tuned for more on this year's African violet series! And do pick up a few for yourself and share with me on twitter @R47R and facebook http://www.Facebook.com/RuthiePople (my personal page ) and tell me about your collection or new plant :)

The Summer of Bad Ideas by kiera Stewart #BookReview #SWEEPSTAKEWIN #GOODREADS

The Summer of Bad Ideas by [Stewart, Kiera]   One of my mega list of hobbies is Sweepstaking. I don't believe in luck, but I do believe in prayer and the favor of God! I was blessed to win the Summer of Bad Ideas by Kiera Stewart from good reads (you can friend me on goodreads if you are a member at https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/10065841-ruth-pople  I always share a review when I win a sweepstake to encourage companies to keep having them and as my way of saying Thank you for the win! Okay, with that.. Here are my thoughts on this fine book....

Edie spends her vacation with her cousin and decides she is going to work on a list of things her grandma wanted to do in 1962. The list was a lot of fun.. one thing on the list was example to stand in the middle of a hurricane! and one was to pick up a snake .. and to kiss the charmer.. really cute (the charmer was at the end.. her summer love) .. all said the list played out cool as example the Hurricane wasn't exactly what you would think it was a dance hall and the snakes had to do with meeting the boy over the summer - I loved the read it is a YA read but I love reading all kinds of books even kids books so I had a ball reading this. I give it 5 stars out of 5 !

Lola by Melissa Scrivner Love #BookReview

Lola: A NovelTo order your copy <-- Click here


I received this book from blogging for books, to be honest I don't know if I would have picked this up at the bookstore as I am more of the damsel in distress kind of reader. However I felt that this book really showed the weak and the strong side of Lola who was a powerful woman among a uncertain world of crime, gangs and troubles. There were some editing problems but to be honest because of my background (my dad owned a printing company among other things) I have read lots of books even after editing that had many errors so I really don't worry about such things but I know this was something that was addressed by other readers and my heart is always I would rather read a ARC anyday and get as close as possible to the author's heart then to be polished. Hold on to your seat and fast paced. I felt like this is the kind of book to read late at night with a big bowl of popcorn or when the husband takes the kids out for the afternoon. A great  read all at once fun read! I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

I started getting the bug for WWII stories when I read a book by Corrie Ten Boom The Hiding Place as a kid. Growing up in America as a all german girl, my mom has told me stories of being a child during this horrible season in our World History. She told me once as a child her mom told her she was going to go some place special and for a whole week she was terrified they were going to take her away with all the children. She actually was going to go to a Birthday party for her best friend! Momma also told me how they would have to have all the lights out in the town and how her father and even my Dad as a kid would ride around the town to make sure everyone was inside. My great Uncles 6 all went to fight as Germans from the USA the Nazi's and all miraculously came home.  I absolutely loved this book The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman set in Poland during World War II. A true story of when the Nazi's invaded Poland and took over the Zoo. Ruthless to the animals and carrying some away to create the perfect specimen. The Zookeepers hide Jewish people in the Zoo and in the cages. I couldn't put this down. I love reading the courageous stories of how people would help protect the Jewish families during WWII. A wonderful read. I highly recommend this book. I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

How to choose the best Feather Duster #CLEANING

Image result for feather dusterComing from a big German family - I remember as soon as we could walk we could work at our home. One
of my favorite chores was always dusting. As I got older I realized that there was dusting and then dusting. All feather dusters are not created equal. The best ones are made from Ostrich feathers the nice down feathers,  and dusting should be done LIGHTLY not heavily with even strokes. If you are cleaning a large building you should gently shake it at your ankles to keep it clean to shake dirt to the floor for home use  simply shake outside while holding the duster down. It is well worth it to put a little extra cash into purchase a good duster you will see the results all over your home! So get your Spring cleaning on and dust away...

Top to bottom and then wax wood furniture and floors. 

If things are super dusty get a wet cloth and wipe down counters , baseboards etc..

Happy Spring cleaning all!

I love #Chopsticks ! #COOKING #ORIENTIAL

55f7e4_4e65e238626a4ec3b9f896fd2e448a22



I love oriental foods and love preparing meals for our home from stir fry dishes to more exotic. I have been using chopsticks for years as the mood hits me since I am used to eating with a fork. Different regions have different types of chopsticks. Believe it or not in  February there is actual a whole day dedicated to Chopsticks! If you ever get the disposable chopsticks that have the little piece of wood on the top, the wood isn't for tossing but rather a chopstick holder - A mistake many make and toss it out. Chopsticks are beautiful and fun and in a pinch I have even used a pair as knitting needles :) 




Silver Fox Rabbit #RABBIT




We just added Silver Fox Rabbits to our little farm.

They are a heritage breed. 
Good for meat and pets.
They are known to have big litters so they are a excellent breed to add to your farm. 
They are considered rare. 
The kits (babies ) are black but as they age the silver tips begin to develop.
They are rare, and considered threatened but there are still many interested in the breed and working with it to develop it further. 
Black is the only recognized breed . Other colors are in the works of development. Blue was in the breed but worked out - now it sounds like this is being worked back in.

The fur is unique in that it stands straight up. It stands approx 1 1/2 inches tall. 

It is the 2nd oldest breed to be developed in America.

Tweet with me at @R47R and let me know your thoughts about the Silver Fox Rabbit breed.

Learn the American Moss stitch #KNITTING

No automatic alt text available.     For years I could only knit and purl. I then learned the joy of how easy it was to learn more stitches. 

Here is a really easy stitch to learn - great for baby blankets, dishclothes, borders etc.. The Moss Stitch. Let me give you some pointers too, so you can do this easily. Trust me it is a easy peezy stitch.

The American MOSS STITCH (keep reading after pattern to get it right!!! A bit of a overkill but if you did what I did .. you will be glad you took the time to read those extra lines. )  

ODD # of stitches 

Row 1    k1 p1 k1
Row 2    p1 k1 p1
Row 3    p1 k1 p1
Row  4   k1 pl k1

k means knit, p means purl
ODD number of stitches.. Make sure you cast on say 21 or 33 a ODD number NOT a even number. 

Counting ...
 example Row 1 says k1, p1, k1 NOT
k1, p1, k1, p1   but rather  k1, p1, k1, (one set) then  k1, p1, k1 until end of row (counting in 3's for each set)  Here is how I do it, I count Knit , purl, knit done.. then knit, purl, knit, done for say row 1 .. then purl one, knit one, purl one done.. and do it again until end of the row. 

The pattern above shows you this, but when I learned this pattern for some reason I wasn't getting it right and I kept thinking what am I doing wrong? then it was like Oh silly.. you shouldn't have been so excited just do odd number of stitches on needles  and count in 3's!!!

Tip of the day - Ebay reseller restocking fee




Image result for dancing with money   Although we don't sell anything except an occasional chicken here and there when culling our flock-- but we are buyers on ebay. Many people are selling items over the holidays and one concern is the unexpected return of a product.  There is a restocking legal fee that buyers can ask of their customers to help cover these costs. Of course I think it is smart business to avoid this at all costs as customer loyalty is important and good feedback , but there are situations where this may be necessary for some buyers to help them to be able to handle the situation. Ebay has a way to help sellers when products have to be returned.  This may especially help with big items.

Stop Eating foods that are destroying your skin!


Image result for Water  We tend to think of dehydration happening only in the summer but with winter upon us we tend to focus more on eatting than drinking good clean water.
Unknowly this can effect our skin. Too much coffee, and junk foods at parties and to make us feel warm isn't the best route. Consider a Hot glass of just water verses a hot coffee and dining on lots of fruits and vegetables. Take the time to plan a nice menu plan around foods that are healthy for your skin as well as for keeping you warm this winter. I have a electric heater going in my house and I have to tell you it is great for my sinuses but I want to also keep my skin feeling soft and pretty so gulping down tons of water is important. Sometimes we don't realize how dry the air is around us so a vaporizer may also help. Enjoy the below information to learn more about keeping yourself healthy over the winter with foods that are not good for your skin.

Flying over the holidays? Be kind to your flight attendant!




Image result for images airplane    I have had my share of flying, but these days I like to keep my feet on the ground as much as I can. With people traveling over the Holidays we need to remember that our flight attendants are also busy trying to make your trip holly and jolly as well. A fun thing to learn is that flight attendants have their own lingo - link below. While traveling realize that you aren't the only one rushing around and trying to keep things moving so are those that are in the skies. Take the time this Holiday season to give a nice smile and a kind word to your flight attendants. And if you get the opportunity take a few minutes and learn a bit about them as a person :) A kind word goes a long way for everyone over this busy season :)

Dieting and Best Rapture Video Ever!!!!

Image result for images Job 23;12




I have been working really hard at trying to get "skinny" as a Christian I like to line my life up with the Word of God. This Scripture has been coming to my mind all week is Job 23:12.  I feel that the way to go for me is portion control as the Bible teaches portion control in Proverbs 23:2.  After working in the weight loss industry and knowing many that have lost weight and successfully this way.  This is the way to go. Basically you can eat whatever you want .. you just can't eat it all at once!  As Revival is already starting to come to the young people in our country - hearing reports from the southern states I am striving to grow closer to the Lord. Between Bible journaling, My Prayer War Binder, church attendance (God calls some to be pastors to train us - sorry can't skip this one !) etc.. my hope is that I will continue to learn that man does NOT live by BREAD ALONE .. we need more - but by EVERY Word that proceeds from the mouth of God (Mt 4:4) 


With that you may enjoy this video for those of you who would like to see the best rapture video ever!

We are asking all of you to please feel free to share information on the changes with everyone in our social media family #PBF (pople backyard farm family) on youtube, twitter http://www.twitter.com/R47R and our new facebook like page http://www.facebook.com/PopleBackyardFarm

This will help everyone with concerns to get through the hump on youtube - it may be a matter of a app, a new camera, etc.. and this way we can help those who may have to make changes for the new upgrades on youtube :)

MAINE COON cat takes over house #MAINECOON


Mister Kitty is taking over our house... I lost my boston terrier of 15 years about 2 years ago and I was just heartbroken. I was so blessed to have a Maine Coon kitten given to us when we bought our van. He was a stray that was living at the car dealership and the dealership was happy to have him go. I knew immediately he was the cat for me as he is so friendly and acts like a dog! Maine Coons are a unique breed in that they can grow to be 23-30 lbs ! I saw one years ago and actually called the game warden because I thought it was a wild cat! I had no idea how old he was but we figure from our research that he was probably about 10 weeks old. It's good to see his little belly grow fat and see him playing with toys and now taking ownership of us!


Check out a few of my plants



We have sold a good chunk of these at the auction and have our winter flock all set to go.
