all folded up.  It will hold lots and lots of clothes.  I will take a picture later of it full of clothes. 

He has also been working on Chuck’s gift.  100_8713

A porch swing.  I think it is very pretty.  I really like the two colors together.    Chuck and his family are coming up tomorrow.  I have to get busy today to finish his “goodie basket”.  We will be having ham, mashed potatoes, green beans and homemade rolls.

The Horn’s are coming over this evening.   For supper, we will be having 15 bean soup, rolls and a peppermint cake.  I got the recipe from http://nadinesnook.blogspot.com/2011/12/peppermint-cake.html  I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.

Today has been a beautiful day here in Floyd.  Plenty of sunshine with a good breeze.  Perfect for drying clothes on the line.   I love to see clothes flapping in the wind.  This means they will dry quickly and will be so soft. 

I tried a new homemade coffee creamer today.  It is Almond Coffee Creamer.  I changed the recipe some to suit our tastes.  3/4 cup powdered sugar, 3/4 cup non-dairy coffee creamer, 3/4 cup powdered milk, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp almond extract.  Put all ingredients into blender and blend well.  I must admit I had some trouble getting it to blend together  but I just keep on trying.  I like almond extract in other things so I thought it would be worth trying.  I do like it and think it would definitely be worth making again.   I was wondering if I could  use this same recipe with different extracts, peppermint for example.  I’m not sure how the cinnamon would go with the peppermint though. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.
