Bake at 400 for 1 hour.
Give it a try, I'll bet you'll love it!
I bought this outfit a few weeks ago. Couldn't resist. The pants are black velvet and there is a pocket on the side with candy corn spilling out.
We had a real good day today. The weather was gorgeous! Sunny and in the 60's. Jerzie sat in her stroller and watched me work in the garden. She didn't last long but she got a short nap before Aunt L came to see her and brought her inside.
Jerzie was 3 months on the 20th (to answer Sue) and this week her new thing is to scream and then laugh. It is so funny! Sometimes you think she's upset but she's just having fun.Can't wait to see what she does next week!
I realized a couple years ago that I was spending so much time looking for weeds in my gardens that I wasn't even seeing the flowers! Everyone was enjoying my gardens but me. I vowed that I would change my ways and start seeing what others saw. Well.....I need to do that now too. I need to think in a new way. If I can't go out and get things done, I need to grab a book (or check out some new blogs) like I do in the winter when we have a storm and all my customers cancel. From now on I will try harder to enjoy the day and not get stressed over the schedule.
Do any of these leaves appear ready to "leaf" the branches of the trees? I think not! Not only do they need to "leaf", I need to blow the front ones onto the curb, and blow the back and side ones on to a tarp which I will then drag to the street. It would also be nice if they would dry out because even dry leaves get heavy when being dragged 125 feet uphill! The good news is it isn't supposed to rain, snow, sleet or hail (all of which it has done this and last week) tomorrow. Any or all of the afore mentioned will start again on Friday and continue for as long as they are giving the forecast. What do you think the probability is of all these green leaves falling to the ground tonight (or at least by 6 tomorrow night when I get out of work), drying out and blowing themselves to the curb? Slim to none, right. That's what I was afraid of!
It wasn't always in her house like some of these cups and saucers but was given to her by a friends son when her friend and neighbor passed away. She gave me these several years earlier because I remembered them from my childhood.
I have a memory of the clock in my early twenties when I visited her and Grandpa in Florida and my later years after she came back home to live several years after Grandpa died. When I first got the clock, the every 15 minute chime would wake me but even that was a good feeling. I would just take a second to think about how lucky I was to have had great grandparents for such a large part of my life.(Grandma lived to 94 and lived alone in a seniors appartment almost to the end!) If you read my "memories " post in Sept. you know that my father died very young. My Grandpa was my dad and grandfather and because of that I was closer to him than Grandma as a child. Such good memories! I don't even hear the chimes all the time now, I'm so used to it, but when I do it always reminds me of my Grandma and Grandpa.
Two early curling irons hang on the pegs. The old electric irons did not have a temperature gage. They just get HOT. A shop I worked in in 1975 used the old irons to do hair at the funeral home. The worst part was the burning hair smell because you had no way to regulate the temperature. They offer to take me with and teach me how to do it but I "gracefully declined"! I have gone to a funeral home once since to do hair on request and one customer tells me she has made all her arrangements in advance and has me listed to do her hair. Now that's something to look forward to!
Today was Gramma day with J. Shea. We had a pretty good day and she seemed to like this pumpkin. Mommy said she wasn't eating much but all she wanted to do was eat. She took a couple 20 minute naps and that was it. She is changing so fast! She does something new every week. I can't wait until next Monday to see what's new!
It is interesting to me how much more I notice when I have a camera with me. I have never taken many pictures because my daughter always did. I've always enjoyed being in the woods and thought I was really observant. Now I wonder how much beauty I really missed!
Bake at 350 degrees for thirty minutes. Remove from cookie sheet immediately and place on a wire rack. Enjoy!
The weather looks like it is going to be great. I hope I'll have lots of pictures to share.
