Coated a bunch of pretzels today. Thats it for me. Angel came and did some extra cleaning for Sat.
Now trying to decide best way to get family that has no transportation. Angel,her daughter Brianna and Angel's boyfriend are going to get them. It will take 3 cars.Bill is letting them use his van. I will be glad when party is over. I think this will be last year.
Bill took Roxy and got her beauty treatment at petco.
Bill ordered sandwiches so we don't have much of anything left to do.
Hope you had a good day.
Our family party will be Sat and we are not ready. We decided on the smart thing to do and Bill ordered sandwich platters from grocery store. I made a bunch of cookies the easy way today.Just took melting chocolate and covered ritz crackers. Bill got some pretzels for me to do but may not do them. When Brianna was moving some things around out here I found a picture of me at 15.I got married a few months after this pic was taken.Check out the snazzy glasses.LOL
I got a nice call from a friend in NC.I haven't seen her in years.Life in NC was hard and this lady was so kind to me.Treated me like one of her children. She would never tell her age for years. But she is now 94 years old. That is so hard to believe. It was nice to talk to her and hear her tell me how much she loves me.It was sweet.
Here are my cookies and me at almost 16.
The first few are old ones.Check out the christmas cactus blooming in with a jade.It was a piece that broke off during the summer and I just stuck it in pot.When you see the purple plant with a brown butterfly on it you are are going to see all the plants Bill got.
This is for Patti.I haven't been able to thin these.Will they die on me like this
Well I am almost finished with gifts. Kids are all getting money. Not a lot. But I made all the labels and put money in cards.So that is all done.
The only gifts we bought were 3 Hess trucks and 3 story books that records you reading it. I will wrap trucks shortly and do books tomorrow.
I have no idea what I will do for Bill. It has to be something special.
He brought home a bunch more flowers for back yard. It was too late to take a picture.Will do that tomorrow
I have been wanting to cook something in a crock pot with no liquid but couldn't find anywhere that said it was ok. So I went for it today.I used my oldest crock pot.I put potatoes,carrots and a chicken breast and a couple of thighs.I used some spices on stuff but no liquid. It worked great.The meat had enough juices that there was some broth in bottom. Then I opened a can of chicken gravy that I heated up. Just used a little of it. Bill made a pig of himself and he never does that. It turned out good this time.Will try it again with different kind of meat next time. Reduces amount of salt and calories in meal.
I am not baking cookies etc but am going to melt different colored chocolate and put on pretzels rods. I may coat a few ritz. Bill picked up chocolate a while ago.
we have so much to do before Saturday and we are so behind. We are just going to get a couple of platters . I wanted carpet cleaned but think I have waited too late.
Oh well.Need to get these trucks wrapped. Hope your day was good.
