How did I decide what to call my blog? There is a creek that runs through my property and depending on what map you're looking at it is called Calico Creek or it is called Muslin Creek. We had some business with the State Water Master a few years ago and learned that it is in fact Muslin Creek. Why name my blog "At Home on Calico Creek"? I guess because I like the sound of it better and I think of calico as being more colorful than muslin, more interesting. Besides, I do live on Calico Creek if you're looking at the right map! Anyway, this is it... the beginning of something new. My next post will be all about making pie.
