Enjoying the Weekend...

Before I forget... wanted to share a picture of the tree for St. Patrick's Day. I wish I had made up more shamrocks but since I am trying to make up a few things for a show in April, I just don't have the time. I discovered the 'no flash' setting on my camera last week and love how it turned out.

Thursday I put a 'WANT' on freecycle for old cookbooks that someone may not want and got a response on Friday evening so Wendell and I went to pick it up. I didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised.

I received this nice hardback cookbook with hamburger recipes! It has given me a little inspiration to try out at least one new hamburger recipe a week. Times are tough and sometimes hamburger is all there is. Figure I can at least use some new ideas on what to make with it. So watch for a new recipe!


Since we were out and about Wendell and I went to a little flea market just over the bridge in Cape Girardeau. It was nice to just go look and I was proud to say that I walked out without spending anything. And when I got home.... I found this in my mailbox!

It was a package from my dear friend Carmen over at Waxed Out Creative Life .

Immediately I notices a sweet smell of something good. I could hardly wait to get inside the house to see what was inside!

I was not disappointed!

Carmen sent me some of Prim Lollys and some of the wonderful tarts she makes! You really need to check out her selling blog. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

Thank you soooooo much Carmen! I love it all! *hugs*


Yesterday I also had a visit from one of my favorite guys. 'Monkey' aka Jaygen came over for a visit. I had hoped to get him outside to play some but it was getting close to supper time by the time he got here so I was busy cooking spaghetti for him.

PawPaw and I were getting a big kick out of watching him eat it. I had to take a few pictures. He would get a strand of spaghetti and put it in his mouth, look at Wendell and 'poof' it was gone. Nothing but sauce and a smile left.

After supper we got cleaned up and he decided to love on his daddy. I am so in love with this little boy. He is talking so much now. It makes me wonder how I ever got along without him two years ago.... I was blessed!

After about ten minutes, Monkey had had enough. He held out that arm and said 'No more pictures MawMaw'! I think he is going to be famous and already getting ready to hold off the paparazzi!


Today's Italian phrase is one I hope we don't have to use until maybe next fall.

Sta cominciando a nevicare.

stah coh-meen-chahn-doe ah nay-vee-cah-ray
