Here is a picture of my lastest project. This picture is of one I did several years ago. Grace has requested one so I am working on hers now. I have finished the pink and blue rows and will be starting on the red. I also have found a new favorite way of making popcorn. I am not found of microwave popcorn. It always leaves a yucky taste in my mouth. I have been making this recipe for microwave kettle corn and we all love it. You can make it sweet like the recipe says or just leave out the sugar and make regular popcorn.
Much has been going on here for the last week. That’s one reason why I haven’t made a post in a while. First off, last week I threw my back out. I used my mom’s old cane to walk around the last part of the week. I am so thankful that I do not have chronic back problems. It was intensely painful. Then on Saturday we went down to Jessica’s for a pumpkin carving day. We have never carved pumpkins before. It was a lot of fun.
Jess made this cheesecake. It was the first cheesecake she had made. It was very good.
Everyone had a great time.
Then Saturday evening we went to the “Critter Chompin”. It is a wild game banquet that our church sponsors. We do door prizes and I won a new bible “The Story”. Have any of you ever heard of it? It is supposed to be the bible but told in a story form Later on that night though we had some bad news. Hubby Dad had been taken to Pikeville hospital with a heart attack. We went down to see him on Monday-11 hrs driving. Hard day in MANY ways. He is on a ventilator and unable to breathe on his own. Later in the week, he had to undergo surgery for a preforated bowel. Today he is still in extremely critical condition. I would ask if anyone feels led to pray, we would certainly appreciate your prayers. He is 81 years old, a Christian man, and wasn’t in very good health before all this happened. Hubby and I are praying for God’s will to be done.
Well, that’s about it. I will try to keep everyone posted. Enjoy your day and God bless.
That afghan is so pretty! The pumpkin carving and critter chomping sound like so much fun, and the cheesecake looks yummy and festive!
We are keeping you all in our prayers.
What a beautiful project. I am so glad that you back is doing better. You and your family will be in our prayers. I am so glad that you posted an update about your FIL.
What a fun Saturday for you all. Our kids haven’t carved a pumpkin for a few years, although I think Emily was going to last night with her roommate. Your Critter Chompin sounds like a fun night. Josh use to tell us of things like that in Kentucky. I haven’t heard of the Story Bible.
Have a wonderful weekend with your family.
The cheesecake looks yummy! Pumpkin carving is one of our favorite traditions. We roast the seeds. 🙂 Looks like you had fun.
