Today has been a whirlwind. I know you all have days like that when you go right from one thing to another. Actually it’s been that kind of week with lots of appointments here at the house and elsewhere. The plumber was here this morning and $420. later a leak has been fixed. I think a piece of chewing gum may have worked for less but I didn’t dare try.
The cable tv man is coming tomorrow morning anywhere from 7 A.M. till 12 noon. I hope it’s not 7 but I have another appointment at 1:30 so I hope he’s here before noon. My 1:30 appointment is with my audiologist and my new hearing aids are in. Does that make me sound old? This should be quite the learning curve trying to get used to one in each ear. Sigh….the ravages of old age on the body. It may make for some good bloggy fodder and if that is the case it will be well worth it! :o) As bloggers we do have our priorities!
I found some fun projects on the Internet while browsing around last week. I like some handwork that I can take in the car and on the plane to make the time go faster so this looked like it would fit the bill. They are kits that are all cut out for you and have the things you will need to complete the project. They are little 11 inch square table toppers so I thought I’d make up a few for next Christmas.
They even put in the little scissors! Suppose I can get those on the plane without them being confiscated??!!!
I took the pieces out and laid them on the top just to see how they would look. You can change them around if you want or put them the way the picture is. I love doing blanket stitch so this will be fun.
Here’s a bumblebee one for summer.
And a couple more Christmas ones. They look like they will work up pretty fast and then you put the back on and blanket stitch around the whole thing.
(No this isn’t a review, just something I found and thought would be fun but if anyone is interested I can send you the address.)
I have been perusing my new cookbook and decided to try the peach bread. This could be used for a dessert with some whipped cream on it. I had to try a piece warm right out of the over with some butter and it was delicious.
What’s the sense of having some of it if you can’t slather some real butter on it?
I didn’t have any real peaches as they don’t grow too well in the snow so I opened a large can of peaches, drained the juice out of them and pureed them in my Cuisinart. I think another time I would leave a little of the juice in, not because it wasn’t moist but because I would like a little more peachy flavor then I got. I think the real peaches would work much better for those of you that can get them this time of year.
This was out of the Southern to the Core cookbook by Karlen Evins that I bought at Cracker Barrel while in Florida.
I think everyone and their uncle must be on roadrunner right now as the computer can’t keep up with my typing. Grrrr……
Some of the turkeys were showing off their plumage yesterday.
On my sidebar you will see a new box to click on. It’s my niece Jo-Lynne’s new updated Chic Critique blog and is now All Things Chic. She has tons of interesting product reviews, fashion (oh man, can I use that one!) and lots of nice give aways. There was a camera bag on there last week that I still am drooling over, it is gorgeous, could be used as a purse when not in camera use! Check it out, it amazes me all of the companies that are looking to the Bloggers to get the word out on their products!
