Keeping Busy

Sat we took Miss B to the mall to Build A bear
first we had to take a turn on the carousel...

This is one happy Grandchild! This was the last part of her Birthday/Christmas. We took her away for a weekend in Feb but by night time she got very sick and we had to take her home.
We took her back on Sat. for the last part of it. If you have never been to build a bear it is an experience. The sweetest girl helped
B fill her kitty and put in the special heart. B chose clothing, and a few accessories for her Kitty and we were good to go.

Today is damp and rainy so I made a half lasagna this pan I picked up very cheaply  holds exactly two noodles wide and exactly the right size long. It is veggie cheese and yummm

We have spent the day watching old movies. Hunk hunk burning love. But cute

Husband has been busy this spring he installed a new brick walkway.

stone steps down to the back yard.

And some things are blooming too!

The rain today will green things up and hopefully
reduce the fire danger.
I have been hooking a little but cleaning and spring cleaning the gardens.
Have a great week.

It Is Almost All About The Food.....

I made bread this weekend it is English muffin loaf and yummy very easy to make in a couple of hours

My daughter and my sweet Miss B bought me a stack of cake stencils  for my cakes it came out great 

A friend and I went to the taste of home show this past Thursday
It was good it went way to long They pull door prizes for lots and lots of prizes, there were 600 people there and I won 3 door prizes

First I won a 20.00 gift certificate for a local restaurant great
Then I won this bouquet that looks like a cake The woman on the other side of me was not happy but I thought I would need security to get out of there as I won a third time one of the dinners which I passed on to my daughter and son in law for their weekend away with friends
My friend and I were laughing so had we couldn't stand it

I hit up the thrift on Saturday and bought this cracked bowl for a 1.00

I have had this for some time, I got it at the dump for free I never knew what to do with it but  

Ta Da a birdbath I am going to paint the cement to match the bowl

On my walk today I found may flowers so lovely smelling

Kennebunkport Maine

A very quick post we got a new computer
windows 10 ugg. There have been more swear words out of
my mouth than I care to remember!
Soo back to my blog our daughter and son in law gave us a night away for Christmas and Sat was the night. Kennebunkport Maine and the weather was amazing!

We met up with family for more laughs than we have had in years.
We need to make more time in our lives for laughter.

This should be hanging in my kitchen so
true for me.
Have a great week everyone!

The Hook

A great walk to Diana's falls with the people I love the most

This rock worn by the water reminded me of a seal on it's side.

  ice and snow still in the woods
I have been hooking and yes Kim you know this rug
It has been harder than I thought it would be. I also have a big birthday this year so I have asked to go to a rug retreat that is still in the planning stages as my gift always looking to get with other hookers.

We have been wet,snowy,and cold so banana bread and a big pot of beef stew.
Have a great week everyone
