The Sunshine yesterday was

oh so gorgeous. We were in the 50's. It is amazing what the good Lord gives us.
We are scheduled for snow on Sunday night thru Tuesday but even then, it is beautiful. (as long as we don't have to be out in it) lol

I made Oatmeal Quick Bread today. I knew in my gut that the 1 1/2 TBSPS. of baking powder was a misprint(and I am old enough to know better) but I followed the recipie to the letter. It is pretty bitter, but nothing a little honey or peanut butter didn't take care of. I tried both. lol
Mercy! I think you have to have a "misprint" recipie every now and then to make you appreciate all the good ones you make. Last night I fixed a recipie my son gave to me and it was really good. Tonight is a Chicken and Rice Baked Casserole and you can't mess that one up. I'm fixing heavy meals two days in a row so we can have leftovers for tomorrow. After ss and church we can just have a lazy, movie watching day.

My daughter is out vacuuming the living room. This is a chore that is her nearly 16 year old son's job. She told him to do it this morning as if she really thought it was going to get done. Dang. It is none of my business but I sure don't think she is teaching him how to be an adult. I feel so bad for both of them. And I pray for both of them.

Sewing is on my list for this next week. Since I was blessed with a suitcase of blue jeans, I think I'd best get at it or Christmas will be here already. Wish me luck as I certainly am not a seamstress but it is Homemade With Love.

Have a peaceful evening and a Blessed tomorrow.

If I Only Had

a brain. Remember that song in the wizard of Oz?? I asked a gentleman if he knew what time it was today, b/c I don't wear a watch. He pulled out his cell phone and told me the time..........very nice gentleman. I am just so glad my cell phone did not start ringing as he was telling me. LOL I can't seem to remember that my cell phone is dual purpose. It is so funny now.

I spent the morning grocery shopping. (Yes, I have to take a list.) Do any of you take lists with you? Fess up, I surely can't be the only one. lol

I spent quite a bit of time in Wal-Mart pricing things as well as doing the shopping. I have a menu for the week and wanted to be prepared. Mercy, I have not made Menu's for quite a few years. I see so many blogs posting their Menus and I am so grateful. They give me such great ideas. I can float between 4 or 5 blogs and have my Menu done in 5 minutes.

We had a very small gathering at church and sunday school yesterday. I didn't mind a bit. I got to know one couple rather well as a result of our small size. I really enjoyed yesterday.

Our weather is holding. None of the predicted snow. It is actually 34 degrees out and the sun is shining. Beautiful!

Have a gourgeous evening with your families.
