Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I wanted to thank you for all your kind comments and emails about the old photos of my Dad in my last post. I was asked about how big they are - they are all 8x10's which is a very large size, but nice to be so big. I did pop them out of not very nice metal frames and will look around for appropriate wooden or period frames so that I can get them up in my rogues gallery of family photos. The weekend brought lots and I mean lots of rain, wind and cold temps. Saturday morning found us running out to breakfast and then our weekly stop at the grocery store.... we where back home by 10:15 am and I settled in for some serious numb butt in the stitchity chair. It was the same after Mass yesterday - we ran to get some breakfast then a quick stop at Trader Joe's and back home by 10:45 am - then more numb butt!! I worked some on exchange stitching and I wanted to show off a finish -

35ct WDW Havana - Belle Soie Silks - "Red Fox" and "Chester's Blue"
I really enjoyed this piece and will have it and the Journal in the mail in the morning to Teresa.
Yesterday I baked up some "Mud Hen Bars" - I saw a picture over on "The Country Cook" and clicked over to "Cooking with K" for the recipe. Here is a snap of mine...
They remind me of a cake my Mom used to make called Mississippi Mud Cake, except where that cake is VERY chocolaty these are not - they are a little chewy and quite tasty, and I really like the brown sugared meringue on top. I will re-post up the recipe on Blacksheep Bakes in the morning.
I got some snaps of the who-hounds and think I will leave off today with one of the Smokester....
He's pretty funny about those silly toys - and if you look closely he is standing on his favorite little teddy bear head that squeaks and has little ropes hanging down - he doesn't like anyone to touch this one!!
That's about it for toady sports fans. Thanks for stopping by - do come again!
