Birthday cake

A hobby of mine is decorating cakes. we had a luncheon for one of the girls at work who turned 25 yesterday. Been making buns all day too and soup---lentil and split pea

A Little Bird

Favorite place to find memories of my kids who did the pottery in grade school, vase from my sisiter who always thinks of me and an 'old' doily from my mothers keepsakes. And my little angel sitting on top of the TV cupboard.
A 100year old plate made by Buffalo China of forget me nots. I have two of them.

I heard a littlebird this morning and started whistling to it. We talked for several minutes. The poor thing was probably wondering like me when warm days were going to come. This reminded me of a little poem I found yesterday....

Have you spent this day.....alone?
Do you feel as if no-one cares for you?
Has no-one called you...via the phone?
And you long for Someone.....or two?
Others are so busy, with many things,
While you sit your rocking chair...
If others could only know what lowliness brings,
And how difficult it is, sometimes to bear.

A little bird comes to sit on the window sill,
And the Feathered Friend brightens your day,
God can send a little bird, as you seek His Will,
We know....God is only a Prayer away.

There were other verses but this one suited my needs. In Psalms 61:8 So I will sing praise to Your name forever, That I may pay my vows day by day. So the Little Bird helped me sing!!!

Old pictures

this geranium i think is a mixture of pink red and white, there is suposed to be a maroon one in there too.

these pictures are over a hundred years old

Flowers and pigs

I love little stuffed pigs
This is my overgrown Elephant Ear plant that has blooms coming from everywhere. First time in ages since it has flowered like this. It really leaves a lot of flowers on the floor also.

and this little shamrock just decided to bloom easter weekend. i was very excited

Cooking for a Crowd

I made Cormeal Buns and Lentil Soup today. About six guys are volunteering to build a friends home for them and they will need lunch. There is enough for two days.
Ingredients for the soup---lentils, water, salt==cook those for a bit then add can of tomatoes, sweet basil, lots of onions, carrots ,celery, chicken style seasoning, beef style seasoning, garlic powder.
I also made a newsletter for the ladies group we have here so i shall attach it later.

Monday Morning

Mating season for the crows can be seen everywhere as they fight over food, drink from the pond and have bath in it, grab a twig or two and fly up to the tree top. Compost dinner today. View from my bedroom window on the northeast side. Sun rises just over the mountain in the middle right side there. Good cloud cover over the radio towers that sit on top.
I looked out my window this morning , sun brilliantly shining after the wind, cold and snow of yesterday, and what should i find but a bunny turning color.

This is what was left on the floor last night after the girls went home from a Ladies Night in PJ"S ~ well ! a girls pajama party. We had fun mud masking our faces, peanut butter quiz, one great breakfast meal and a tear jerker video called Miss Rose White.

happy birthday
