If you haven’t discovered Pinterest yet, why not & If you have, how many things have you made from being inspired? I think I’ve made too may with many more to come LOL, I rearranged one of my boards & pulled out all of my cookie recipes, I’ve actually made quite a few
So far Jan. has been a great month for catching up on those “just for me” projects, as well as UFO’s & tweaking & organizing the house, I’m redoing the office today & believe I’ll be happy with the new look & be able to start posting pictures soon
yesterday I finished up some snowmen ornies & made “me” lol a ladybug wreath, hop on over to my raggedys blog & check them out
soooo many good recipes on Pinterest, some common sense of what you know should take preference over what the instructions say LOL what I mean is when Paula says cook for 6 hrs, then add this & that & another 4 hummm really??? now I’ve cooked many of roast among other things in my time & know that any meat will disappear into space after so long lol, here’s Paula’s recipe
I didn't cook mine nearly as long as she says & my meat still disappeared but it was good anyway I put 8 in but only 3 came out I kid you not LOL!but I do like how it cooks down thick & it was goood, so I will give it another try but sorry Paula next time I’ll use my common sense other than your directions LOL!
Have you discovered Pinterest? do you love it? how many things have you made from there, tried any recipes? I’ve made quite a few things lol but will post about that later but will let you in on what I’m working on next
in my sewing room thee are two walk in closets, one is filled with sewing stuff & Lord only knows what else lol! & the other our stuff, the one in our room is full of Christmas lol anyways, one of the closets we are going to turn into this for hubby, the minute I saw this on Pinterest I knew it was his closet to be!ohhh I can’t wait, it’s going to be fabulous!
I came across this & thought hey I’ve got one of those, we’re using for a fake porch in front of the new shed LOL sooo get it out of the elements & to a safe place LOL
I found someone who sells this pattern! can’t wait to make some for shows
if all goes well I want to make this for Sunday dinner tomorrow , so I better make a list & go to the store!
well that should be enough to keep you guessing for a little while LOL, Jan./Feb.I’m not taking any orders, I’m clearing , culling, tweaking & making things for my home that has been for a long time coming, have you visited my raggedys blog lately? did you see my “just for me” apron? LOL
not sure what’s up with coffee trying to turn on me here lately but I thought humm I haven't had a good cup of tea in a long time, so I bought some herbal tea & pulled out one of my sweet tea cups , how about you,do you like teas’ do you have a favorite ?
yes this is the culprit for the snowflake mishaps , that’s my story & I’m sticking to it LOL ,my daughter tells me if I’ll use a icing bag & tip I’ll get great results so I’ll give them one more chance as it gets closer to Christmas, pretty or ugly they taste & eat the same LOL
some I dipped in melted chocolate chips & sprinkled pecans…too many pecans lol, hubby like plain ole sugar cookies so some didn’t have to go through the embarrassment the others did lol now who’s going to eat all this cookies ,we’re supposed to start eating more healthy come Monday LOL!
with the fun of cookies I also started working on my blogs some more, did you notice the backgrounds have changed? check out the new things on the sidebars, there’s lots of new things to get involved in
I also went & got my book Made To Crave ,one of the things I’ll be getting into over at my blog Sitting At His Feet ,be sure to comment of your thoughts of the giveaway ideas
still working around tornado damage but all is well!we’ve got to get ready for a plumber to come in & an electrician, you know how they like to look in cabinets LOL! so guess today will be clean out cabinet day & regular hum drum domestic work LOL!
in the thinking possess, there is a need to go get boxes so I can box up the sewing room, oops who just sighed LOL it’s only so I can paint & move things in to create a better functioning room LOL!plus there’s 2 walk in closets in that room & it has to be empty to empty them out, one is full of sewing the other our stuff combined, I am going to turn them into a his/hers closet would you like to see my eye candy picture for his closet?
ohhh I can’t wait! this excites me more than redoing the sewing room LOL!
With so much to do, so many places to go, so many people to see , the doing will always get done eventually, the going can happen most anytime & the people are welcome to see me anytime LOL, just keeping real & one day at a time
today I will try to redeem myself on those snowflake cookies lol & try a new cookie idea while I’m in the cookie mode, we will later pull out my new kitchen aid mixer & try our hand at divinity
we have to go to town later for hubby a haircut, while we’re out I may go by Lowes & give that sales girl one more chance to wait on me LOL for those who missed that story I tried to get paint a few days ago & after waiting 10 min & 3 others coming up to the counter I gave it up
What ever happened to the sweet simplicity of a good old fashion picnic
I’m not sure if my grandchildren have ever experienced , what we’d call an old fashion picnic , the word picnic generally means you’ll be at the park or zoo but most definitely sitting at a “picnic table” somewhere lol
after all isn’t it all about the buffet anyway lol
how long has it been since you’ve been on a picnic?
Are you getting off to a good start for the New Year? we’re going through one room at a time, complete overhaul, paint, rearrange, organize, fluff, cull out,one room down & eight to go, whew! good thing I have a small house LOL
the whole month of Jan is dedicated to the sewing room, yea there’s that much stuff in there LOL I want it to where I can have friends over & have sewing days, I “want” a couch in there, a table, bookcases humm we shall see how that turns out but one thing for sure ! those dark yellow walls has got to go ,LOL
since the rooms are kinda small I’m thinking all rooms toward the front of the house need to flow with the same color, yea I know! that’s a lot of paint! LOL upon entering the back door you face the kitchen, a room to the left & bathroom to the right & living room straight ahead past the kitchen, my neighbor calls it a shotgun house cause you can stand at the back door & shoot out the front door LOL off to the left of the kitchen is a bed room & sewing room & off to the left of the living room is a bed room & another we use for the office so I’m thinking all the rooms you ca see from entering the back door need to be one color, this should keep me busy for a while LOL
then there’s those “just for me” projects to catch up on LOL
today I am working on cleaning up the sidebars on my blogs, deciding on new backgrounds
and last but not least, trying to redeem myself from those pitiful snowflake cookies I made Christmas LOL! the oven’s hot & the dough’s chilled & I just realized I didn’t leave out enough flour to keep the rolling pin from sticking, so guess it’s to the kitchen to turn off the oven & to the store for a bag of flour, if I didn’t know better I’d think those cookies are trying to get the best of me again LOL!
