A New Apron

100_8752

I thought I would show you all a picture of the apron I just finished today.  I think it looks so cheerful.  My friend, Vicki, found this pillowcase at a thrift store last summer.   I think it turned out really nice.  I like using old pillowcases  to make aprons.  They have a vintage look and the cost of material is greatly reduced.   My aprons have not sold as much in the fall and winter as they did in the summer.  I hope to make up quite a few this winter to have on hand for the upcoming summer.  

The girls went to the Horn’s yesterday to celebrate Bubby’s birthday.  They had a great time.  Hubby and I went to C-burg to get tires put on the car so I had to miss Bubby’s cake.  Our church collects fleece throws, lotion and socks for our local nursing home.  The pastor’s wife meet us in town so we could deliver them.  Today we have cleaned out the chicken house (YUCK!)  The temperature here is mid 30’s.  Not too bad.  I know it could be lots colder.  

Tonight’s menu is hamburgers on homemade buns, home fries and peach dumplings for dessert.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.

Whoopie Pie

The other day the girls and I made something new.  New for us anyway.  We made whoopie pies.  To my remembrance I have never even eat a whoopie pie much less made one.  It was very good though and I plan to make more.  I got the recipe from another blog http://holcombhappenings.wordpress.com/  She has so many good recipes.  We are getting lots of rain and wind today.  I was hoping for nice weather as we are going to visit my uncle today.  He and his wife live in Michigan.  They are down to visit her stepmother who is in a nursing home in Salem.  Salem is close to us so we plan on meeting them at the nursing home for a quick visit.  We wanted to meet at a little park in Salem but weather is not cooperating.  We will just have to visit somewhere else.  I am certainly looking forward to seeing them.  The last time we saw each other was about 10 years ago.  Much too long.

I thought you all might enjoy this picture.  Maple trees are one of the first to bud out here.  Another sure sign of spring.

Enjoy your day and God bless.
