Really truly I did see the sun for about two minutes today and now it’s gone…I think for good. Sigh! We didn’t get flowers this week…the weather for most of the week was intermittently rainy, cloudy and gloomy. Totally not my idea of flower gathering or planting weather. We even had the heater running for a few days this week.
I finished my book…it was just simply fun…lots of book references, angst and even some sweet juicy bits!
Now I am contemplating one of these…for the weekend!
This slideshow is for Stephanie…she is cross stitching and I wanted to show her a few of mine.
I would cross stitch on planes and trains and cars…in this country as well as other countries. I was always in a cross stitching frenzy! Buying, stitching, framing and hanging! Ones with kitties were very appealing to me! And anything with lots of red! And houses! I loved cross stitching houses.
Den has put himself in a cleaning frenzy. We still have winter paintings, throws and pillows in the family room and we need to change them out to sunflowers, Maine coastal paintings and flowery pillows and quilted throws. Den sort of cleans as though he is under heavy attack. Roxie, Lucy and I steer clear! Roxie thinks she is hiding from the vacuum cleaner.
So…what next? Hmmm…I think this will be a stay in weekend. Our town hums when it’s any kind of holiday…and Mother’s Day is a big one! Every spot near and far will be busy!
I still want to make a vanilla cake or an Angel Food Cake…and load it with strawberries! Den made fresh whipped cream the other day and it was crazy good! What do you do with 12 egg yolks when you make an Angel Food Cake? I use my Aunt Annie’s Angel Food Cake Pan although I don’t remember anyone in my family making Angel Food Cake! I like to make it because it’s Den’s Favorite Cake ever! And I love using the pan and tipping it upside down! Seriously? I almost lost it just now because I went to where I keep this precious to me pan and it wasn’t there! Mr. Clean put it in a different spot and then forgot where he put it! After 30 minutes of frantic searching he found it! Whew! I was already starting my inconsolable tears! But he saved my day! And he saved his day, too! I am going to use the cake recipe that was on The Kitchn this week.
I don’t really have a cooking plan for this week end but I am kind of hungry for pasta and meatballs! Or these which are mostly from The Kitchn…
And last of all but best of all…our fave pix with our moms! My mom is on the left…the other lady is my Aunt Jennie!
Have a great weekend! See you on Monday!
