Painting soothes me. Like gardening in the summer, painting in the winter allows my creative juices to flow. I work scenes mentally, and plot things out in my brain... I picture them while sanding wall putty and scraping wallpaper off !
But those pics are for a coming week, today we're just going to have some old-time fun because it's been cracking here!
We had our Half a SuperBowl party and I forgot to take pictures.... But we did have these!!!
Ree Drummond's "Pioneer Woman's" apple dumplings, oh my word, I love them!!!
And we had this, but that's going to be next week's blog...
Angelina's Pulled Beef Barbecue courtesy of the Double S Ranch and "Back in the Saddle"...
And we'll be giving away a copy of that soon-to-be-released book, too!
And then there is this:
Clifford paid us a visit:
And Finn started his Super Bowl party with ice cream, because why wouldn't you???
We had 12 kids and 8 parents here for the big game, and it was so much fun!
And I caught a cold from Eli...
And my credit card got hacked for almost $3,000, all of which the credit card company caught... God bless them!
But honestly, over a thousand dollars at Target, fourteen hundred at Apple Store, and $71.37 at Match.com.
The reason I use a business credit card for business purchases is because you just never know who might be grabbing info at the other end of the online purchase...
So I'm thrilled that Chase/Southwest wasn't fooled!
So next week we're doing the Pulled Beef Barbecue, perfect for a hungry cowboy crowd or any crowd! And then Angelina's homemade bread (suspiciously similar to MINE!!!)...
And then the cherry cake that is so wonderful!
I'm leaving you with my best and most blessed wishes for a beautiful Lenten season, a time of prayer and reflection and thanksgiving. God bless you!
