Rectangle Shortbread Cutter Part Deax

Last year I posted a recipe for and then got several inquiries about the little shortbread cutter.  Yesterday we were out  doing a little shopping in the pouring rain and ducked in the kitchen shop. There they were!  I bought all they had and thought I might offer them up to y’all if you would like to have one.  You can have one of the 5 (yep only FIVE) by being one of the first 5 to email me  – The cost is $5 each ppd in the US.  If you live outside the us we will work something out if you want one.  They sell for  $2.49 on amazon but the postage is about $4 so this is a bit better.

After I let you know you are one of the 5 just paypal me and I will get it right out! They are very sturdy little cutters and I was VERY happy to find them.  Don’t dilly -dally or you’ll miss out!

ALL GONE!!! They will go out in the next day or so!  THANKS and ENJOY! Cookie recipes are here and here.

OH Dear Fay! Behave yourself!

This little map makes me a bit nervous.  I used to think it INSANE for my parents to watch the weather like they did but I do believe I am beginning to fall under the same spell.  The first thing I do every morning is get my coffee, log on, open my email, and then open the weather.com in a new window.  Then I open wunderground.com in yet another window.  Obsessed??? Maybe. But here is the map of this morning from wunderground.com:

See the lime green and bright orange paths?  Yep, back in the Gulf would be a bad thing.  See that bright orange path headed straight for the boot tip of Louisiana.  What’s left there is precious and even more what has been rebuilt.  I realize living under sea level is dangerous and so do the people that actually live there.  While, I live about 5 hours north and west of the boot tip, I still worry for those who live there and the potential for loss of property.  Not to make light of what is happening in Florida, or has happened all along the Gulf coast for years, but we don’t need another hurricane any time soon.

School Days, School Days!

They are fast approaching!  We will enter our 21st (I think!) year of homeschooling on September 3rd.  I wish I could say I am ready, but that would be a complete untruth!  But I am working on it. I loved the graphic above.  SOOOO 50’s.  The good old school days.  See I LOVED school.  I loved the smell of freshly sharpened pencils and crayons and paste.  I know you might find this hard to believe but I have had deja vu and that smell come to my nose from absolutely no where!  Such a warm fuzzy feeling.  But my, my how things changed from when I went to school to now.  I wont go into all the reasons we decided to homeschool but I will say it has worked for us.  It is what we do, kinda who we are.  Maybe one day I will feel like sharing all the whys and whatfors.

We are making a little trip today because both of the girls are off work and Husband has been wanting a meat pie from Lasyone’s in Natchitohces.

And we will pick Jess up and then we will all do a bit of antiquing if weather permits. If you click on the sign above you can read all about their famous meat pies.  They are amazing!

There is a fairly nice teacher’s store in Natchitoches as well, and I will pop in there and see what I can find.  I like to keep some workbooks around for days when we need a bit of a break and some “schoolwork lite”.  Or as I like to refer to them Mom’s Mental Health Days.  On thing I will be looking for is a pencil sharpener that sharpens fat pencils.  See, I still LOVE to write with and old fashioned real wood pencil.  And fat or primary ones to boot!  My pencil sharpener is worn completely out and hangs up and wont sharpen the pencils correctly so, that is on my list.  One day I will post some pictures of my vintage school books and supplies.

One more thing: I should have the S’more Cupcake recipe later today!  They were delish!
