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 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 1 of Spring Break

Standard

First off I decided to to walk, need to get that habit established so why not today! I suppose I will just give you a run down of our first day on spring break. It’s 42* ;We did one subject of school, math and had lunch then made a cake. Chocolate Peanut butter Cake. As we were getting ready to make the frosting  I began to frantically look around the kitchen and in the freezer for the much needed powdered sugar. No where to be found was enough powdered sugar for the frosting, we needed 3 cups. so, K was off to the office to ask her had to take her to the grocery store, he said yes. (here I am waiting and writing).

Just received a phone call from K on her dad’s phone asking me if I wanted a Sonic drink, being a weakling I said yes. (so much for my 30 minute walk). Now I am waiting for the return of K and her dad. As a side note, I am not feeling well, I hope it is not something that gets worse.

I did start feeling better, we had dinner, K made snicker doodle cookies   🙂    going back and forth while we watched a movie called  Joyful Noise! I was working on a bucket list item, my oldester daughter’s afghan, I shall be finished with it SOON  (jump for joy) 😀  I am doing the border now, picture will come when I am done.

Cat, Quilt and Sunday Afternoon

Standard

Here she is last Sunday taking over my quilt! I went to do some work on the center of the quilt and found Ms Gracie Cat taking a Sunday afternoon {all day} nap! This writing is mostly about me trying to get my quilt and table back and not  forcing the issue. I went back upstairs after making Ms Gracie go through a photo shoot.  Yes, I did get to quilt finally, she wanted to eat and had to leave to come up stairs for dinner.

Random Reds

Standard

I thought that being it Valentine’s Day I would have fun and take pictures of my red belongings! Now I will share with you. I know that Valentine’s Day is pagan holiday and I am not a pagan any more due to the fact that I have been washed by the blood of Jesus Christ my LORD, therefore, I am no longer a pagan. {{((hugs))}} thanks you God for sending your Son to be the Savior of the World. As a side note did you know that this past Tuesday was Fat Tuesday? Wednesday was Ash Wednesday?

Well here are my Random Reds….I do LOVE RED.

Me and Thee and Flowers

Standard

I have been blessed with receiving flowers from my hubby this past week, first he brought me, a single red rose

{True Love}

{True Love}

Then another surprise came about mid week (yet I don’t really remember when he brought it to me}  I do love flowers and they bring happiness and cheer a hundredfold during the winter months… maybe that is why we have Valentine’s Day in February? You tell me, for I do not know. 😉
