Happy Birthday x2

Standard

Our two April Birthday are here and gone , C and M (is today) I don’t think they will mind if I share pictures, however I did get a blurry one with my phone! I am working on catching you up with what has happened, it has been a while. I don’t really like it but sometimes life just comes at you fast and you have to pick and choose what to not do…the blog was it!  I did get M her one birthday gift request but want to go find some other treasure for her, I forgot to take a picture, it was a plant!  So birthday gifts are yet to come!

Here’s a few pictures of the birthday last Saturday:

Day 4 Thursday, of Spring Break

Standard

This week is truly flying by for me! I have not sat at my sewing machine all week long. Bummer!  Still I was proud to get some much needed work done around the house and time was well spent with my youngest daughter K. Today’s forecast ..hasn’t happened yet and don’t think it will; rain turn to snow 30% chance. It’s 35*F right now and it feels cold out there. My outdoor cat Shasta wants in the garage, but she can handle the outdoors. She has shelter.

!. Looking for bag pattern and purse pattern this morning   free downloadable bags   ton of choices! Here is what we picked  reversible tote bag

2. We didn’t get snow, but Friday morning we did get a very small amount that melted by 9am-10am

3. We had fish that Fred caught last summer, bass and catfish, love the taste of fresh caught! Sure glad he likes to fish. (thank you honey) and I made cookies!

4. Can’t believe I didn’t get this posted on Thursday 😦   We watched Lord of the Rings, Two towers, stayed up way late! Because we needed to watch basketball again. It is March Madness after all!

5. K started hand stitching the binding on her lap quilt! She has a bag to make over the week end.

Day 3 March 20th of Spring Break

Standard

Today is a little cooler, news is telling u we have a chance of rain and snow starting tonight and Thursday. I just started thinking SPRING since today IS the first day of spring   😉

I painted my nails grabbed the flip flop and a T-shirt….now may be back to fall clothes for a bit longer? We shall see what really happens. I forgot to take pictures of our outing, but K and I went to the Mall today for a pretzel, we ran into friends (my friends) we sat with them. We ate and chatted for a bit then K and I went on our way to look for shoes (for her).

Dressy shoes…. heels!  no luck this time around. RATS!  Next, fabric ( how could I pass up a fabric store when I have to walk right by one?) NOT gonna happen if I can help it…. we went in, found fabric for the backing of son C’s quilt, found fabric to make a bag and then we brain stormed to make K a sling purse, we are on the hunt for the pattern (free one we hope).

So, no real pictures of us,  😀 Going to make dinner now…

Looked at making a surprise quilt with a friend ( will only be calling it that until it is finished) Had a police officer in the neighborhood this afternoon, do not know what he was doing but that is never an exciting thing to see an officer going into your neighbor’s back yards, 3 different yards. What was he looking for? Will the newspaper tell me tomorrow?
1363823781952Recipe: Chicken breast, bacon, brown sugar and chili powder (mix what you think you will need and make as spicy as you like). Heat oven to 350*F. Cut chicken , wrap bacon around it, coat with brown sugar/chili mixture; put on cookie sheet (I sprayed mine with cooking spray just in case they stuck) Bake 30-35  minutes. Recipe from Facebook  MyFridgeFood.com  

Fred and K went to the YMCA for some fun! I cleared the kitchen, now to do some sewing! Daughter M’s afghan is FINISHED! #5 is now marked off the list (Done on Wednesday). So ended the 3rd day of break with a basketball game and The Fellowship of the Rings!

Day 2 Spring Break

Standard

Woke up to a cloudy morning, 32* so far today, I have full day planned! I am going to do all I can to get ALL of it done. I live a simple life of a mom, no flash but that is alright with me. I am healthy. My kids and grand-kids and husband and parents are healthy! I will take the simple life with good health. here we go with our day….

Starting over on my nails, had to do ‘nail repair’ one was breaking way to deep and it would have hurt to trim it so I got out my super glue and gauze. I cut a tiny piece of gauze first, laid it aside while applying a drop of super glue to both sides of my broken nail then laid the gauze on top of the glue. I let it dry really well, then ‘sanded’ the rough edges and top off to make a smooth nail, applied my nail strengthener and polish. 

K, did her school work, then went to visit a friend this afternoon of spring beak. I worked on editing and buying senior pictures of  son C. Now to buy announcements tomorrow. We watched the Hobbit tonight at home  and had popcorn while drinking sweet tea. I had to work on the afghan and do some much needed meal planning.
