Rain Again

November 24, 2009

So, no dog walk.  I made some mashed potatoes and took a shower.  When the potatoes cooled, I made roll dough and put them in the refrigerator until tomorrow.   While Doug made up his mind as to what he wanted to bake, I finished the embroidery.

I love my embroidery machine.  This is going to be a label to put on the back.    I’m also doing some applique.







Here’s another picture of the label.







Doug went with cherry almond muffins.  It was a mix that I bought in Intercourse last week.  And they were good, too.  Maybe, I’ll make buckwheat pancakes Thrusday morning.  It’s another mix, too.

Oh, What a Beautiful Morning

November 21, 2007

Here it is, the day before Thanksgiving. I have things to do, but it is so beautiful outside. I managed to cook up a small batch of rolls this morning before walking the dog. They’re gone now. Sweetums washed and hung the sheets so I guess I will have to bathe tonight. I am sure the neighbors will appreciate it.

Here is a picture of me with the neighbors house in the background. I didn’t like this sweater when I first made it.  It sat on the closet shelf for a good year. I am finally starting to like it. It seems to look better. I think all those dog walks are paying off. Do I look brain dead! I was trying to explain the camera to my husband and this was the best he could do. At this point, I probably was brain dead.

The pattern is from Sally Melville’s Purl Book. The yarn is Rowan California Cotton. I really love this yarn. I still have enough for at least three more sweaters. It’s also wonderful for wash cloths. I am making my daughter a tunic with it. It is taking me a while because it is crocheted. It’s hard on my hands and I can’t crochet for hours on end like knitting. On the other hand, her knitted gloves are done and I have started on a matching lacy scarf.

Back to reality. I’ve got to go peel apples.

Refrigerator Rolls

November 20, 2007

I made the mistake of making scones for breakfast this morning. They took too long. I had other things to do. But, they were really good.

Now, it’s after 4PM and all I have done is get the mashed potatoes out for the rolls. I am really dragging around. I didn’t go to the market until 3 PM. I needed really stupid stuff. The worse being nutmeg. I know I have nutmeg around here somewhere, but neither of us could find it. The good spaces were all gone in the parking lot and I wasted a lot of time waiting for LOLs to get by. Daddy always told me to have patience, but there are times. As soon as I finish this, I will go make up the rolls and put them in the refrigerator. Tomorrow morning, I will make 5 or 6 to try out.

It’s a good thing I will not be making everything for Thanksgiving. I don’t think I could handle it right now. The neighbors invited us and am bringing rolls and apple pies. I couldn’t find the right kind of apples around here, but fortunately, my daughter did. I picked them up when I went over there last week. I think those pies are the main reason my son is coming here for Thanksgiving.
