April 16th 2018


Isn't this a fine kettle of fish!!!!!  April 16th and it is cold and snowy!  I covered my strawberries last night and they will be covered for a couple more nights!

My poor Morning Glory seeds that I started.  Reaching for light!  The tomatoes I posted last week are doing fine as I move them from window to window but the yard long beans not doing as well.  They need more light and can't move them very easily as I planted them in a larger pot.  Hopefully spring will decide to come and stay soon!

Made up a batch of barbecue chicken.  Like to have easy things made ahead to warm.

And another batch of gluten free pancakes for myself!

Sweet Great Granddaughter Nora has a birthday this week.  I bought this doll and made up a little doll blanket.  My Mom sewed flannel quilt squares together and I have kept them all this time.  So used some for the top of the blanket.  I guess you could say the top was made by Nora's Great-great Grandma McKee!

Just waiting to be wrapped!

Another visit from Nora!  I am glad that we live close enough that we can be a part of her life.  Also thankful our daughter takes time to bring her over often!  We are blessed!

Playing peek-a-boo under our new glider that goes outside.  What a job putting it together but "wonderful gardener" got it done!  Of course I helped!  Hehe

Much easier for Nora then me!  Stay warm and have a great week!  Thank you if you leave a comment to let me know you visited.

April 9th 2018

What do you think?  Are these yard long beans going to make it?  I started them in the house but I don't have good sunlight and no grow light system.  I saved these seeds from last year.

Made gluten free biscuits again.  They don't really look like a biscuit but they fill me up!

Added this material, lace and yarn to my stash.  I fell in love with the heart design lace you can see in the next picture.

Isn't it just the prettiest!  I love hearts anyway.

My two favorite people eating popcorn!  (Coco thinks she is a person!)  Coco is patiently waiting to be thrown one.

Dehydrating more strawberries!  I love my dehydrator.

I like to make two chicken pot pies when I make them and stick one in the freezer.  I only put a crust on the top and these are gluten free crusts.

I finally finished this pinwheel couch quilt!  It is a gift for a special person.

I used plain blue on the back.  I did tie it.  My Mom always tied hers from the time I can remember and I like tying them.

Chris sent me  cherry tomato seeds she had saved.  These two are doing fairly well considering my lighting situation.  The pot looks larger than it actually is.  It is small enough I can move it to the den window sill in the mornings to get more light.  Hoping!!!

Progress in the Courtyard!

  It was so nice to look out my bedroom window this morning and see the Clematis blooming instead of a pile of snow.  It is a rainy day agai...
