Thank you all for your lovely comments and encouragement. I see more baskets in my future.
Saturday I met Chris to catch up and have lunch. Little did I know she planned for this to be my birthday lunch as she is going to be away on my actual birthday later this month. (I can't believe it is already September and I will be .....Gasp! 50 years old this year. How the snot did that happen?)
We had a wonderful time as we always do and did our part in solving all the worlds problems. ;o)
We met at Hobby Lobby and you know I couldn't leave there without a little something in my basket.
I fell in love with the Christmas fabric and the little ditsy will be used as the backing for Beggar's Night. I have been stitching away on it this weekend and thoroughly enjoying myself.
I have been cooking.
DH was diagnosed with high blood pressure this past week so he has to stay away from salt. His favorite thing to eat before work is soup. So instead of him serving himself a can of that salt filled stuff, I have been making soups and freezing them. This was garden vegetable soup made yesterday and I have a pot of vegetable beef clean out the pantry on the stove now.
I have also discovered puff pastry.
It goes so well with the fresh peaches and apples we have been getting from the orchard. This is peach streudel from last week and I made apple streudel yesterday.
Thank you for visiting. I will leave you with a wish for a wonderful week ahead and a little ric rac rose to brighten your day.
