good Afternoon. Today has been a mixture of clouds, wind, shower and sun and repeating again. At least with the showers we don't get flooded gutters and backed up sewers. Tomorrow is suppose to be the same. Sure wish this didn't come all in one month but spread it out over the summer too when we really need it.
Louise, it's too bad your bakery can't bake a mix of
gluten free and regular bake goods. That would make the most sense to me. Is that a problem with the baking process?
Patty, I know your DM must enjoy the car rides you take her on. A few years ago when DH would drive mother and I to sight see, he was driving her 1971 Mercedes. I don't think she saw the scenery at all as she would keep her eyes on the speedometer. Probably thinking he wasn't driving in the right gear. It was a stick shift car with no power steering. She gave the car to the couple that help her and in the winter they store it in her garage. I don't even think he drives it much.
Sarah, I also am getting tired of cooking. Mostly trying to find something different to fix that I have the ingredients for. Yes, I generally make a list of what I need when I go shopping and then a couple of weeks later, wonder what did I buy this jar of ??? for. It would be easier if DH could eat more salad and more green vegetables. His veg. list is limited with his blood thinning meds. The ones he can eat are the ones I should not be eating, like potatoes, corn, winter squash etc. As W W would say the #4 vegetables.
Cindy, the quilt you are making, is it all by hand or are you doing a machine quilt? That is wonderful that your GD likes working on it with you. I think the hardest part of making a quilt would be the fabric shopping and trying to pick out colors and prints that all go together.
Jan, I just know the little girl will love the doll you are taking for her. What a lovely thing to do. My LF in Fl. had her house burn down a couple of years ago and what a terrible thing to go through. She had spilt some grease in the kitchen and mopped it up with towels. She thought she rinsed out the towels really well before she put them in the washing machine but after the washing machine washed them she put them in the dryer and caught fire in the dryer.
I've read and read most of the morning. Are you ladies finding fresh strawberries in your stores yet? DD bought some for me today that were on sale and they are huge. They would be perfect for dipping in chocolate. (bad idea, Ann) I wanted them to add to salad greens. I did get some Brownie Bran Muffins made for the freezer.
I sure wish we'd hear from Heather and Randella. It has been a long time. I believe Heather's baby is due in March.
