Good Morning! Hope you all are enjoying some beautiful weather today. According to our weatherman its suppose to reach the high 80's today and no rain! Yay! I am so tired of the rain. Hopefully today Wendell and I will be able to get out into the garden to plant some tomato and pepper plants we picked up yesterday. I am so ready for fresh veggies.
There has not been a lot of anything really going on around here except for a little crafting and job hunting. Yesterday I ran into town and picked up some applications while doing a little grocery shopping. Wendell will have been on Medicaid for two years soon, so he will become eligible for Medicare. Since the money isn't in the budget, I will definitely have to work at least part time to pay for his medical. I would love to work from home but there are very few jobs that let you do that, at least I haven't found any here.
If I had my way, I would craft and cook to make extra cash. Someday.....
I have done a few samplers in the past week. This is one of the smaller ones. I found the frame at the dollar store over the weekend. It was a little too red for me so I tried 'priming' it up with shoe polish but I think I need to go darker. What do you think?
Friday I made a visit to the Food Bank again. Was really surprised to get five dozen farm fresh eggs! (Maybe this is the hint I should bake this month.)
We received: 5 dozen Eggs
1 can - Pork
1 box - Mac and Cheese
2 cans - Green Beans
2 cans - Peas
2 cans - Corn
3 cans - Pork and Beans
2 cans - Vegetable Soup
1 can - Mixed Veggies
1 can - Carrots
1 can - Mixed Fruit
1 can - Applesauce
1 can - Spaghetti Rings
1 can - Spaghetti Sauce
1 can - Eagle Brand Condensed Milk
4 - Apple Cinnamon Muffins
1 - Fruit Pizza
Pork Update: I made BBQ sandwiches last week with the canned pork and I thought it turned out pretty good. Of course I had to rinse it good to get rid of all the fat. I liked it but Wendell complained he could tell it was canned. Honestly.... I think if he did not know it was the canned pork, he would of ate it and not said a word. *laughing*
Be on the lookout next week for my first book review and a giveaway. I am so excited about it especially when they have already sent me a second book to review.
Are you ready for a few Italian phrases today?
Prenditi una pausa.

Take a breath.
Grazie per l'aiuto.
grah-zee-ay payr lah-you-tow
Thanks for your help.
Well, its time for me to get busy and get to work around the house. I hope you all are able to get outside and enjoy part of the day.
