(Don’t you love the two country bumpkins standing in front of the museum of fine arts in their overalls? You can tell I wear mine OFTEN!  They used to be dark blue!)

Best I can figure I got my first pair of overalls in 1973…so I have been wearing them for 36 years!

Not the same pair of course.


Scenes from Supper

greenbeansI am not feeling terribly inspired to write this morning.  Trying to find my inspiration and nursing a bit of a headache.  These weather changes really aggravate me!  Cold or hot- make up your mind!  So I will post you a few ‘”foodie” pictures from last night’s very delicious supper of Tandoori Lamb and sides.



And here are the beginnings of dessert.  I made crepes.  I whipped up the batter and it chilled while we ate supper.  Then I offered up strawberry, blueberry, peach, Nutella or citrus sugar for filling.  Served with homemade whipped cream.  Very delicious.  And I had enough crepes left over (see notes below) for today if we like


I have more pictures to post but will save them for later.  Oh…and here is a glimpse of my new prairie skirt.


I LOVE it.  I ordered if from Urban Prairie Girl (etsy- DUH)

Oh yeah, one more thing ~ in honor of Thoughtful Thursday I will leave you with this:

‘The creative person is both more primitive and more cultivated, more destructive, a lot madder and a lot saner, than the average person.’  — Frank Barron

Notes on Crepes:

For immediate use: Stack crepes as they are baked and keep covered. Store at room temperature.

To refrigerate: Wrap stacked crepes well in foil or plastic wrap and store in refrigerator for no more than two or three days. Let the crepes stand at room temperature about an hour before filling or serving.

To freeze: Separate crepe layers with wax paper and put in a tightly sealed container. Crepes will freeze well for up to four months but handle with care as frozen crepes are fragile and will break easily.

Allow crepes to thaw completely before unwrapping and separating to prevent tearing.

Filled crepes may be frozen but use discretion in selecting fillings. Choose foods that normally freeze well and remember that crepes absorb liquid easily and become soggy.


Is it really Saturday?

I am some kinda messed up on my days.  The holidays do that to me big time.  What day is it?  What month is it?  What year is it?

As promised, here is a picture of the apron I made for my oldest daughter for Christmas.  I couldnt post it before I gave it to her.


It is made from this pattern.  So CUTE!  And SO EASY!  And now I will share one gift I got from oldest daughter.  It is the one thing I have gotten a picture of! Its been a busy couple of weeks.  I started making pictures of gifts and got distracted VERY quickly! But here is the first of many…

sewingboxThis beautiful sewing box!  Just the most adorable sewing box ever! I will snap some pictures of the inside this evening if I get a chance…if not then, soon!

Well, that is it for this morning.  If you could see my kitchen!  It is a disaster.  I have got to get my house clean and straightened or I might just have a breakdown.

And I know my son in law doesnt read my blog (at least I seriously doubt he does) but my daughter does so I want to wish him a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY today.  We will be getting together in the next few days for a meal in honor of his birthday.
