Great Surprise

Monday, November 07, 2011

My visit with my friends for the weekend went GREAT. Carla (PIINKNFITCARLA) came for our little get together too. I was in 7th heaven this weekend. My friends and I were out at a craft show when Carla got here around noon. When we came home, I opened the garage door and was getting ready to go into the kitchen and Carla said, "Mom, close your eyes, are your eyes closed??" Yes, they are..NOW open your eyes....There Carla stood with Levi---my great grandson-holding him up for me to see. I was SO surprised....because I had no idea Carla was bringing him. That was so wonderful that she brought me that surprise. Later in the day, the doorbell rang and it was Levi's mom and dad (my #2 grandson). I didn't know they were coming either. 2 surprises.....yay. Everyone spent the night and we had a great visit. THANK YOU CARLA......I love you. Carla always does such nice things for me and I am so lucky to have her. She is a very caring, loving daughter........

Friends Weekend

Saturday, November 05, 2011

I am going to have a great weekend with friends. Yesterday 2 friends came to visit for the weekend and today Carla (PINKNFITCARLA) is coming too. The two friends that came yesterday are 2 that I grew up with from grade school and we have kept in touch all of these years and are good friends. One other friend that I grew up with wasn't able to make it this weekend and we are really missing her. She will come another time. Yesterday,we went to rehab to visit with Mom and she was so surprised to see them. We had a really nice visit. Today when Carla (my daughter) gets here, we are going to a craft show and then to a Christmas Holiday at "Country Collections". It is an old barn with 3 floors of crafts and lots of things. The bottom floor has all Amish made furniture: bedroom sets, dining sets, rockers, just any type of furniture and it is very well made. The owners' house is just next door to the barn and they move out of the house into an apartment over their garage for this celebration. They have the house all decorated for Christmas and you can tour the whole house. We are looking forward to this happy weekend. Carla will have to go home Sunday evening, but my friends are staying until Monday and one may stay longer. Yesterday, I made Southwest Chicken Chili and made cornbread for dinner. My friends hadn't had it before and it was a big hit with them. I also made an apple pie, which we didn't cut yet. I guess we will get into that today.

Results of Maple Pecan Chicken

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

Well, I did make the Maple Pecan Chicken recipe that I posted on my blog yesterday. Hubby and I thought it was pretty tasty. I took a plate over to my neighbor who had hit her ankle yesterday and it was sprained pretty badly. She thought it was very good too. So, there you have it.......3 testers and all said yes, it is a keeper. If you want the recipe, check out my blog from yesterday.

Have a good day

A sweet and crunchy taste for this terrific chicken dish.

Witchy Mom and the clown

Monday, October 31, 2011

I went to rehab today to celebrate Halloween with Mom and they were having a parade. It was in the fine dining room after lunch. I dressed Mom as a witch and I was a clown. We had a great time and they also served refreshments. We had carrot cake or marble cake, orange or black soda, cheese curls (orange) and then everyone got a treat bag. The facility where she is does so much for the residents

Here is a couple of pictures:

Mom as witch......
