Spring

Friday these beautiful red winged blackbirds stopped by our feeders for a little snack.  They are usually the first birds to return in the spring.  They are a week earlier this year than last year.  Hopefully, that means an early spring.   However, this morning was no indication that spring is on its way.  Wind chill temperature -10 degrees with snow on the ground.  Well, the snow is gone now and the wind chill now is 5 degrees so we are warming up some.

Not much going on here.  I have started work on Sam’s quilt.  I have all the 5 x 5 in. squares cut out and am ready to start sewing them together.  School has went well this week.   Did I mention to you all about the last batch of homemade laundry soap I made using the laundry bar soap instead of fels naptha?  Well, those of you who have been reading my blog for a while know that in the past I have had trouble with the homemade laundry soap.  My clothes seem to get a dingy look and the towels became really non-absorbent.  I know, strange stuff, but strange happens a lot here.  I guess it is our water that causes these problems.  Well, so far I have had no problems using this batch.  It is a little bit different recipe than I have tried before but I think the real difference is using homemade laundry bar soap.  I will try to remember to keep you all updating as to how it is doing.

Well, I better get busy.  Church tonight and the menu is baked potato bar.  Sounds delicious to me.  I really like baked potatoes.  Enjoy your Sunday and God bless.

Snow

We have snow here in Floyd.  The girls are very happy.   It was not a lot of snow but hopefully enough for snow cream later today.

I worked on aprons most of the day yesterday.  I made 4 little aprons and 2 adult size.  I made the adult one a little different and was able to get one child size and one adult size from one pillowcase.

I made the back much shorter.  It just comes over the shoulder and that gave me enough extra material for the small waist apron.

This one has a child one to match.  I didn’t take a picture of it because I didn’t get it completely finished yesterday.  I ran out of the white binding.

I was prowling around in the trunk where we store extra material the other day and found this veggie tales material.  There was not a lot of it but enough to make these two little aprons.  I think they are very cute.    Anyway, that was my day yesterday.  I wanted to make a few different styles of aprons to kinda get an idea for what sells the best. 

I cooked a deer roast on the wood stove yesterday for supper.  We had baked potatoes,  home canned green beans, fresh homemade rolls and home canned applesauce for supper.  It was very good.  I think today I will shred the deer roast and have deer bbq and fries.  I already have buns baking as I type this.  I made a buttermilk chocolate cake the other day so that will be our dessert.  It all sounds pretty easy.  There was not church today because of the snow so I think today is a take it easy kind of day.  I will leave you all with one more snow picture.
